    I’m looking for split image focusing screen for my C220f. They seem to be very hard to find. OEM, Beattie, Maxwell. Thanks!

    I have an OEM screen for the C330S at home. Not sure if it has a split image focusing aid. Will check tonight after work and let you know.

    Sorry...what I have is a box for the type C screen with a used type A screen inside. I think you want a type B or type B2 or type E. If you want the one that I have send me your mailing address in a PM and I'll send it to you.

    Thank you for checking for me, I do need the B, B2 or E screen. I currently have the A, plain matte screen.

    Onward with my quest... thanks so much for checking and if you do happen across one keep me in mind!

    I have not seen a one online anywhere! Probably since the C330s and C230f were the later models and not so many sold? Somewhere there is a stash of screens brand new never sold!

    It is probably a long shot but you might try calling San Jose Camera. They used to have an enormous inventory of professional Mamiya equipment. I have not visited the store in perhaps, ten years but...worth a phone call.

    Their website is: https://www.sanjosecamera.com/

    good luck.

    Hi Brad, I have recently acquired a C330S but it is in need of a replacement screen.
    I came across this thread while searching online for one, they are a rare item at present.
    Would you be willing to sell it to me / post to the UK.
    Many thanks
    John

    Kinda' off the topic but has anyone tried adapting the generic split image focus screens available via the big auction site? Thinking about trying one on my Bronica S2A.

    Sorry, I gave it to another APUG member a few weeks ago.

    I checked the one I have, it's just a microprism/circle, not split image. still available for almost nothing if you want it.
