FS Mamiya RB67 Medium Format Camera

Not sure if this is allowed in Foo but worst case scenario it gets deleted. I know there are a few photographers in here. I think I'm going to sell this beast. Would come with 2 120 backs and a polaroid back. I feel $400 would be fair for everything. Any takers?

FWIW, the camera could use a cleaning but takes fine pictures as-is. I've put about 30 rolls or so through it in 3 years.

The RB 67 is a workhorse of a body.
I've seen them in studios with decades of daily use with no problems.

Do you know its use before you bought it? Could you scan a couple of the recent pics taken with the camera and post?

I'm well into digital but a good friend can't come out of the dark.

f3.8 127mm lens, that's around a 70mm in thirty five terms. Good lens.

I bought it from another photographer 3 years ago or so. Not sure how they used it. To the best of my knowledge everything works as it should however I've never tried to run a flash with it or anything. No noticible blemishes on the lens. However, I'm sure it could use a cleaning. Here are some acans of negatives from my shoots:

Thanks i feel like that's a good price. Hell it costs that much just for the 2 backs.

awww, man.... That does seem like a good price. But I'm a sucky photographer. It would be wasted money.

I think it is a great price.

I would buy it, but then I would feel obligated to get a 220 back, some more lenses, then one of those nice 22MP digital backs.

Oh crap, now I'm broke!

Set up a CL ad and link it in your signature with the price in the CL ad. Then it will show verywhere you post on the forums.
