    FOR SALE - Bronica SQ-Ai body, waist level finder, 80mm 2.8 lens. Also 2 (220) backs -- 6x6 and the 645 back.

    I've always shot 120 film with no problems on these backs (other than a small variation in spacing between frames) and the camera is in fine condition...speeds accurate, lens clean.
    Body is between user and excellent -- no issues there. I already have an SQ-Ai set-up, and want to eventually switch systems, so this camera just isn't used.

    $200 plus shipping and I'll throw in (2) rolls of Fuji 220 slide film too.USD
    Price : 200.00

    I realise it's likely to be costly, but would you consider shipping to the UK?

    Not interested in buying, but I would like to point out that I use the Bronica SQ Ai system, and that I consider it my go everywhere flexible MF system (check out my postings for an idea of sharpness/contrast/quality. It is excellent, and I think Colin's price is a bargain. K

    Thanks guys -- sale is pending.

    And Kal, thanks for the kind words. Your photos sure are a great advertisement for this camera's quality!

    (FWIW, it's the system I used for my 6x6 China work posted here too)

    Folks - this camera has been sold.

    Thanks for all the interest...my Hassy fetish means I'll probably be selling more!

    cheers

    Thank goodness. I don't have any medium format system gear. I'm trying to hold off at least a year before any more major purchases - but this deal was just breaking me every time I thought about it. :smile: Congrats to the lucky person who scored this one.

    Don't say that Colin! I told myself no near gear for a year and I'm only lucky that I read your post too late to be able to capitalize on it. :smile: I may not be able to resist a second time...

    Hi Colin.

    I see you're selling off some Bronica SQ stuf. If you have a 120 back to go on the block, please give me a holler. I'd also be interested in a grip/winder and, just maybe, a waist-level finder.

    What sort of 'Blad system are you shooting?

    Thanks
