    This is a Bronica ETRS with an AE prism (yes it works), a 75mm f2.8 lens and a speed winder. Now I happen to think the glass on this camera is worth shooting the camera, not the other way around. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the camera or not but I've had some situation where the shutter didn't fire and it left me standing scratching my head. Because of that I set it down and stopped using it. But gosh darn the optics on this lens are stunning. Fully open the bokeh is just out of this world. If you want that, then maybe you should buy this camera even though I think there might be some kind of wiring or connection problem. That problem doesn't happen all the time, actually it only happened once to me. I went online though and read about other people having the same problem so I figure it's a bug of some kind. If you can deal with bugs that are CHEAPLY PRICED just to get a nice piece of glass with great bokeh, then this camera makes sense. Otherwise, I'd say take a pass on this one.

    $100 plus shipping

    Probably the lube in the lens mechanism that transfers the motion of the pins on the camera body to trigger the shutter and diaphragm has gotten stiff. That's what it usually is. The camera does not generate a lot of force in that direction, all from springs. The stiff lube makes it hang up. Easy to fix. Take the back off the lens and clean and regrease.

    Hello Tom, how much? I think this will fit in a large size flat rate box for Priority Mail from the USPS and I think that price is something like $16 or $20. I will accept Paypal payments and checks. Thanks for asking! Perry

    Oh, good to know. Maybe I will look at that later tonight and see if I can detect any stiffness. Wow, if that was the only reason then hmmm.... man I sure do love this glass. I don't like bulky dimensions though it's a bulky camera reminds me of my RB 67 I got rid of. If I had a waist level finder and a hand crank I would keep this but I looked for 6 months for a waist level finder and they are like the price of a camera with a prism finder. Go figure! That's what happens when you have a more niche camera that is no longer made. You look for some things and they are impossible or very expensive to find. I'm still selling this camera everyone. don't worry, nothing can change my mind about the items I put up for sale I need to downsize! :smile:

    I checked. It seems the body needs lubrication. That's what it seems to me. But yeah it does seem there is stiffness and I bet if someone were to send it in for a CLA they would be very happy with this camera thereafter!
