Housed in a plain uncluttered body the Mamiya 16 Deluxe was introduced in 1961 to fill the gap left by the discontinued 16 Super III. Dispensing with the coupled light meter the space was replaced with an optical viewfinder with parallax correction. It has shutter speeds from 1/5 - 1/200 s plus B, lacking only the slower speeds of the 16 Automatic. It retains the fast f2.8 lens and aperture settings from f2.8 to f16 with a wheel on the left-hand side of the camera and a readout on the camera top. It has a focusing lens, with close-focusing to 0.264 m, Accepts filters with a slip-in set-up like the 16 Automatic, i.e. rectangular.
Has two tripod sockets ( one was used by a flashbulb unit and the other by the wrist strap), cable release connection, and PC contact. The built-in lens cover acts as a shutter lock.
