I found this camera on my favorite flea market and was very surprised that Mamiya also produced 35mm cameras, because I just knew the big professional medium format cameras.

Photo from: mamiya.co.jp

The Mamiya 135 AF is an excellent camera and doesn’t look like that, because there’s nothing on the camera to adjust. You can only turn the flash on and off, and change the ISO-setting from 25 to 400. Otherwise there is no possibility to change something. The camera does everything by itself with the autofocus and a CDS-meter.
For me the Mamiya 135 AF is an absolutely hip-shot camera. You don’t have to care for anything. And the results will always different and not like you thought of.

What I really like is that I can use my 10m cable release and tripod with it and that the photos are always very sharp (if the AF did his job successfully). But there also things I don’t like: I can’t make long exposure photos, because the shutter speed just goes up to 1/30s and the focus up to 1,1m. Well, but every camera got its little bugs, and that is what a Lomographer loves.
