This camera is Mamiya's C330S TLR. Mine is one of the last models made of this series of cameras. At it's time it was quite popular with professional photographers. The main advantage to for example Rolleiflex is that this camera has changeable lenses. The lenses are in one package, so that both taking and viewing lenses are a matched pair and changed at the same time. One downside compared to TLR's without changeable lenses is the weight. The early versions were very heavy and despite being much lighter, this latest version is not very lightweight either. On the other hand the quality of the camera and it's feeling is incredible and so are the pictures it makes. Ergonomy is very good and  the finder is very good too. On tripod for night time photography this camera is a dream, especially during cold winter nights where it works reliably the all time.
