Bronica 942534 overview

  • 1Description

The Bronica ETRSi is a medium format, Single-Lens-Reflex lens shutter camera which uses a 6 x 4.5cm negative size. This frame size is approximately 2.7x larger than the 35mm format and means that finer details in enlargements will appear "snappier". This compact and lightweight camera is based on Bronica's lens shutter system allowing flash synchronization up to 1/500sec.

The ETRSi is a full system camera and accepts a full line of lenses, film backs, viewfinders (metered and non-metered), focusing screens, bellows system, extension tubes, teleconverters, a Polaroid back and many other accessories. In addition, TTL/OTF flash exposure is possible by means of Bronica's exclusive Current Control Center (C.C.C.) based on direct metering at the film plane. Full TTL flash photography can be achieved using either the Metz SCA system, Quantum "Q" Flash, or Sunpak flash systems by utilizing the appropriate connecting modules. Multiple exposure is easily accomplished by means of a switch on the body while a warning signal in the viewfinder alerts the user when this function is engaged. The ETRSi also features mirror lock-up for making long exposures or for minimizing vibration when using very long lenses.

Motorized film advance is made simple with the use of optional Winder Ei-II. If motorized advance is not required,the included Bronica Speed Grip E makes hand-held photography easier by means of a comfortable film winding lever similar to traditional 35mm camera operation. Metering is done with the included AE-III Prism Viewfinder E which offers the photographer average and spot metering modes, aperture priority auto-exposure, manual exposure, exposure compensation, variable diopter adjustment and auto exposure (AE) lock. The ETRSi delivers advanced photography with handling ease and is an excellent choice when the photographer wishes to step up to 6 x 4.5cm medium format photography.
