    Here is a fine camera that I bought new 30 years ago... great shape with some wear marks as per photos... bellows and rangefinder were last parts available from the canadian distributor so I had them
    installed a few years ago. Works great except of course the meter.... tiny thin wires always break and the meter was so/so. It is non functioning. Pristine glass always protected by uv filter. Plus this has the
    original hood, cap and the incredibly handy and rare grip. Grip is worth lots and makes it great to work with.....Amazingly sharp and fast 2.8 lens. I have four hasselblads and a fuji 6x9 rangefinder and this is
    a sad day but time to let it go to a new home. $1900 includes shipping and paypal fees for canada and usa.

    Funny - I have photographs on my wall taken with one of these - in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Sharp beyond belief

    What? No interest? If you are not familiar with this camera, you owe it to yourself to google it and get the specs.... folding 6x7cm camera with sharp f2.8 80mm Nikon lens. Precursor to the Bessa/Fuji 67 folding camera with German engineering. Easy to handle and great travel camera....would consider $1800 including shipping (canada/usa) and paypal fees PLUS you get the hand grip
    that everyone wants to buy!

    Great camera, but with the economy in the bin it's going to be a tough sell. You might want to try posting it on the Range Finder Forum (.com) classifieds.

    Economy seems to be in the toilet not the bin especially when it comes to disposable income. My artist friends are suffering.... tourism here in Banff National Park has dropped.... skiing is down.
    Oh darn....... wanted to sell some large format cameras and my Plaubel to finance a holiday. Or vitals for the kitchen! Oh well, someone will find the dollars for it at some point. It really is sweet
    and if it doesn't sell, I will likely be pretty happy.
    Cheers, Richard

    yes, it is still for sale but not for low balling.... it is a very fine camera in great shape. The meter doesn't work but I never liked the meter anyways.
    Let me know asap as I was thinking of putting it on the big auction site.

    Hi Indiana.... yes you did and I thought it was rather low. At the time it was and I was/am ambivalent of selling my favourite camera but I haven't used it for six months so if you are interested, I will sell you the camera and lens hood for $1250US with you paying shipping/insurance and i will eat the paypal fees. Let me know please as I will try and put it on rangefinder as soon as i have time. Summers are busy for me but planning some road trips soon. Just bought $500 worth of Fuji Reala 120 as I use my hasselblad and a 617 shen hao..... Glad to know folks like you are still enjoying film.... I use digital for work but love that film look. Last night I was showing a friend some 16x20 prints from reala and the plaubel and Tuscany. Pretty darn nice.

    I still have this camera and even found the original box it came in...... Camera and lens hood $1250US Just checked and shutter speeds are dead on accurate.That price does not include the rare hand grip.

    Hi Frank.... don't know what you need ... the grip is very rare.... usually sells for around $200US if you can ever find one. I would like to sell the camera first and then put up the grip. Or sell the whole package. That way if it doesn't sell, I still have a grip which I really like for walking around with this camera.
