    I tend to do a fair bit of scanning of local buy and sell sites for Ireland like adverts.ie and buyandsell.ie and occasionally stumble upon things that might be of interest to people here. I thought I would start a thread for giving people a heads up on stuff like this. Here's one I saw found earlier ...

    Mamiya RB67 Camera Leinster Co. Dublin €400.00
    With full kit&3 lenses,€400

    If you go on to buyandsell.ie you will find the phone number/contact details. I'd buy it myself but having bought 2 new cameras in the last month or so I'm going to reluctantly let it pass ....

    Looks like good value but I decided last year to stop buying cameras, I had enough gear to cover most subjects. You can get sucked in thinking you need every gadget under the sun to take and print decent photos.

    Instead I now buy photography books which hold their value better and give great pleasure. I am always warning the family that some of them are valuable and not to give them to a charity shop when I pop my clogs.

    It's a buyers market, there are more sellers than users at the moment. I'm tempted to buy an RB67 but then I have excellent 5x4 gear and also 645 kit so hesitate. But that price is a steal :D

    Also I have a few of those funny coins, they look very like the new Turkish Lira, but are worth more :smile: I'm very tempted !!!

    Two of my students were encouraged to buy a set of 2 mamiya RZ67 pro2 with 4 RZ lenses and heaps of equipment to follow... well by me

    RZ 50
    RZ 90
    RZ 110
    RZ 180

    5x120 magazines
    Prism
    compendium
    Polaroid back
    and other stuff less expensive

    Pricetag was 7500 danish "kroner" - or 1000 euro

    They just went

    last year i bought a Sinar Norma 4x5 with 9 lenses and a ton of other equipment for 1000 kroner = 130 Euro
    last year i too bought a fully loaded Hasselblad set with 500cm + 40mm, 50mm, 80mm,150mm, 20 original hasselblad filters, compendium, 3x120 magazines and 2 extension tubes - and along followed a Nikon 90x, ringflash, 2 fixed focal lenses, Pelicase - and a ton of lightning stuff - 3x 1000 watt teathrical lightning with barndors.....and then some....for 6000 kroner - 850 Euro
    Last year i bought a brandnew Rollei 6008 integral with 50mm and 80mm and stuff for 6000 kroner - 850 Euro

    This is crazy - but i love these bargains

    Do you know what it was, was it a modern post war print.

    I think that it was a pre war print featuring a man with a camel looking into the desert. I would have to say this man knows his way around photographic archives and he does go to book fairs etc., looking for good buys.

    Not quite sure how much these usually go for but this looks like a bargain to me.

    Leciaflex sl2 with 50mm summicron - 450 euros.

    Again, on buyandsell.ie

    An M3 + Summicron would be a far better buy, and often around the same price :D

    Yeah. Must be some rare variant of the Bronica. I think that's the one where the price tag is €-1.00? I think that means that the seller turns up, gives you the camera, and hands over a euro to you. No-one can tell me that that isn't a bargain :wink:

    I know you are tempted but think of the lump on the back of your head when you tell your missus you are going off to make a few exposures with Veronica

    There is a Bronica RF645 at a real bargain price. It only needs tlc. Someone might be interested.

    edit: Sorry, I've forgotten to say, the ad was on adverts.ie.

    I was actually tempted for a second to buy it, but then I remembered that I dont really need more cameras :smile:

    Try ebay, the lens on it's own cost almost as much as what you are asking for the kit.
    Good luck!

    it would be several hundred anyway, depending on how much of it needs servicing and how bad order its in.

    it would be well worth a look anyway
