Lens comes with collapsible rubber hood and rectangular metal hood. Two backs and two dark-slides. I bought this second hand, but never got to use it myself.
I have used other medium format vintage cameras to a limited extent. They have a certain charm. Mainly, to me, if you are taking film photos and want to be in total control, who doesn't? , then the medium format provides the possibility of having a proof-sheet made from a roll of film rather than having prints.
Invariably if you get prints, then the developer will crop the image to a certain extent as well as adjust the exposure per image. All well intentioned, of course! Thus your artistic photo of a black limousine sitting on a black asphalt road will be come out looking like a gray car sitting on a gray road.
But if you have that proof-sheet made they can't tamper with the exposure as all of the images have to be exposed the same. Also, of course, the images will be printed to their true edges, without any cropping.
Only problem is how do you do that with 35mm negatives as the images will be so small. This is where it is nice to have a medium format camera -- the images are large enough to be looked at without enlargement. Additional items include lenses, and extension tube set and a reversing ring. The camera is undoubtedly vintage as per the model number. That means that the focus knob is on the right side, rather than a ring on the front behind the lens.Also, rather than the usual collapsible finder there is the fixed chimney finder. You will be impressed with the clarity of this finder viewing the medium-format ground-glass screen of the camera. The rubber eye-cup is missing, but I found that the finder works fine without it. The normal 75mm Nikkor lens seems to work OK, but the iris doesn't move very fast and may stay stopped down after an exposure. I don't know for sure, but I think that this condition my improve with usage. One can work around the problem without too much trouble. There are two detachable film holding backs, (with dark-slides). You advance the film by turning the film-advance crank on the camera body and when the next exposure's worth of film has been moved into place the film-back stops advancing which causes the camera to transfer the cranking action to cocking the shutter. In the case of the not-so-good film back the back just keeps turning and the shutter doesn't cock.
However, I found that if when advancing the film, (turning the crank), I press the film back hard against the body of the camera, then it acts just like the "good" film back. It could just be that the gears aren't engaging as well as they should. But there is this work-around. The mechanical action of connecting and disconnecting the backs by inserting the dark slides works beautifully. When you put the back on, the dark slide pops part way out -- automatically.
To get the back off you have to make sure to insert the dark-slide all the way in, otherwise the back will not release. The lens comes with two shades.One is a collapsible rubber one, and the other is a metal one. The Bronica Zenza S body 2. The 75 mm, f 2.8, normal Nikkor lens. Two film backs with dark slides. The solid detachable chimney finder. Two lens shades: One collapsible rubber one, and one solid rectangular metal one. Further Research From the Web. Com" on the Bronica S This is the second model introduced by Bronica. It was available in chrome only and can be identified as follows: Fixed, non-removable chrome focusing mount. PC contact on front of body. Mirror lock w/switch below shutter release. Distance scale and focus control on ring around advance crank. Speed dial on left side of body. The S model was introduced while the DeLuxe was still in production and represented a simplified version of that camera. Top speed was lowered to 1/1000th second and the self-timer/long exposure control, double exposure and focus lock were eliminated. All Small bayonet mount Bronica Nikkor lenses fit the S body.
The 105mm f/3.5 Nikkor and 300mm f/4.5 Zenzanon will not fit. The present focusing tube will not fit the S camera. This model also requires a special extension tube set and bellows. The current tubes and bellows do not fit the S mount.
All prisms, hoods and grips as well as the sportsfinder for the S2A will fit the S. Look up on Web: Steve McQueen and Bronica Zenza! Thank you for reading these notes, and..
