Mamiya 7 135 adapter kit converts your medium format 120 film camera into a 35mm Hasselblad Xpan panoramic camera alternative! This is great if you already own a Mamiya 7 or if you want a proper 35mm panoramic film camera. The video shows two ways of loading 35mm film into a Mamiya 7 film camera. First is the official Mamiya 7 35mm panoramic adapter kit. Second is the much cheaper method of using 3D printed film spools. I must mention, if you use the 35mm to 120 adapter you need to unload the film at night or in a dark bag as there is no quick way to rewind the film.

    I’ve done the cheap alternative on my Mamiya 6 MF, however it seems to want to intially advance a lot, meaning you only get approx 10 shots per 35mm 36exp roll. I’ve tried taping a long piece of film to the film and winding it back into the canister so that I could use the whole roll, however it seems to then just want to advance more and need a double advance per frame which is so bizarre. Any advice?

    Nice camera and cool adapter. Would be good if you need to shoot loads of shots in a day or something. You got some good shots in there too.

  3. Nicolò Robino on October 10, 2021 at 9:11 am

    you could use two cheap 3d printed adapter kits, one per side, and two 35mm canisters. this way you don’t have to worry about rewinding the film or unloading it in the dark

    I live for stuff like this! I love having multi purpose cameras!

  5. Moo T on October 10, 2021 at 9:17 am

    Don’t forget to rotate the panel on the back to “220 /135”

  6. Francisco Rodriguez on October 10, 2021 at 9:21 am

    I guess the only negative of using the 3D printed method is you’re stuck rewinding with a coin.

  7. obscura_ graffitica on October 10, 2021 at 9:25 am

    Can you talk about how framing works with this panoramic set up?

  8. Simon Garnier on October 10, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Are these light leaks from the sprockets that one can see in the cheap adapter pictures?

  9. ogmike on October 10, 2021 at 9:34 am

    does it use a whole roll of 36 frames? is there waste? What if you used a 24exp roll?

    Everytime you post a video and I like it, I go and buy that camera. I am now poor and have to sell my house, my wedding rings and my food. How am i supposed to keep up.

  12. bogdan alexandru on October 10, 2021 at 9:39 am

    How many frames do you get out off a roll? I am using the 3D printed adapter on Pentacon Six and really love the results. But I noticed the spacing between frames getting bigger and bigger towards the end of the roll.

  13. Jesse Koskinen on October 10, 2021 at 9:39 am

    This was very interesting. I love it when one can expand capabilities of a camera by addiotional accessories. Like in this case, or with Leica M analog bodies by using a Visoflex to allow use of long tele lenses.

    If only there was a fully, 100% mechanical panorama camera in the style of an XPan. With the build quality of an Leica M3.

  14. Peter Dadson on October 10, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Just viewed this video Matt which adds to our conversation. The full kit would be the best option if I had one of these cameras.

  15. Ali Shah on October 10, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Matt, love your website + appreciate the videos now, too. What film + dev did you use for the non-panoramic-kit shots? Did you notice the dim light leaks that seem to originate from the sprocket holes? I have similar leaks with out using the mask.

  16. William Woon on October 10, 2021 at 9:46 am

    Hi Matt, I have a new Mamiya 6 (not the MF) version to which I know there’s a 135 panoramic adapter for the Mamiya 6 MF just like Mamiya 7. The Mamiya 6 MF seems to be very similar to the Mamiya 6 except for the viewfinder with markings for different formats.
    I’m trying to find out if the Mamiya 6 MF’s 135 panoramic adapter will fit the Mamiya 6 too? Would you know about this? I can’t find on internet answers to my question. Hope you know

  17. Hannah Nguyen on October 10, 2021 at 9:46 am

    Very helpful video. Thank you!

  18. Carlos Carpio on October 10, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Boss this is a great video. I don’t have a Mamiya 7. I knew about the panoramic adapter though and this would be my go to vid IF I ever get this setup. I DO have a two panoramic cameras – Minolta P’s and a TX-2. Amazing tools. Thanks!

  19. Francisco Rodriguez on October 10, 2021 at 9:55 am

    i almost bought the xpan, but i have a Mamiya 7 so I quickly came to my senses and ordered the pano kit for the 7. Can’t wait to use it!

  20. JM Tubbs on October 10, 2021 at 9:56 am

    I guess a super cheapskate method would be to use the 3d adaptors in a much cheaper camera such as an Ensign selfix 820 used with the printed adaptors and with the mask open for 9cm, giving an even wider panorama. The cassette will fit, I’ve just tried a couple of 120 6×9 cameras. It would be necessary to do a bit of preparation on how many turns to wind on as the rear window would have to be kept closed. I think with a a second set of adaptors you could wind into a second cassette so no need to rewind or open in the dark,. Cameras that use drop-in masks (for 6×6) would obviously permit home-made 35mm masks. Perhaps the top adaptor design would have to be modified to allow it to be wound. Re-usable cassettes are also cheap, as is bulk film, relatively. I have a Russian 35mm Horizont panoramic which is fun and has a 28mm lens, equivalent to the 30mm widest lens of the X-Pan. Images are prone to distortion though. Or just use 120 film and crop, if you are not doing a lot images. Likewise the adaptors would probably work in an old-fashioned 6×9 roll-film adaptor for use on larger format cameras. I have one of those and might give it a try.

    Bronica makes a 135W film back for the ETRS, which gives a 24x54mm image. Not quite as wide as the M7, but another option.
