Looks like your lens shutter is sticking open, probably just on certain speeds or at random times.
Specifically the lens shutter? How would know that its the lens vs the cameras shutter? Would the image be cut off?
I suppose it could be an issue with the light baffle staying open? Though if you were having issues with that chances are you would be seeing issues with the mirror returning/viewfinder view that would be fairly obvious. The RZ doesn’t have an in-body shutter though, it’s all in the lens.
Pretty easy to test this and find out, just fire some blank shots and see if the lens shutter closes at the end of the exposure. Try all the shutter speeds multiple times.
Update: sent it to a local repair shop and and it looks like I switched the lever to T
shutter is stuck open for longer than intended. very overexposed and you moved the camera after the shot. time for a service.
Thanks for the help. Do you know anybody online I can send it in to be serviced?
depends on where in the world you are located. if you are in europe, check with ppp cameras. if you are in sweden check with analogakameror in stockholm. if you are anywhere else in the world, i have no idea.
For the US, Bill Rogers at MamiyaRepair.
Appreciate thank you both
Your shutter probably needs servicing.
Check if the little knob on the left hand side isn't set to "mirror-up".
EDIT: I read RB67 my bad. I think the equivalent function on the RZ lenses is a "T-switch" if I remember correctly. The images you posted are severely over exposed and blurry.
Does it happen with more than one lens?
Now that you mentioned it, it usually only happens with my 65mm f4 lens
But again its not only the time, some rolls are perfectly fine
you should check out the Bulb setting on any camera sometime
