    Herd thinning continues. Up for sale is a Balda Super Baldax Coupled Rangefinder with 80mm F3.5 Baldenar lens. It's been CLA'd by Jergen Kreckel (aka cert06 on Evilbay) The shutter is a rare SVS prontor which has coupled shutter/aperture (EV dial) capability. This shutter was not often seen on this camera. The F3.5 Baldanar lens is more than adequate and, the rangefinder is accurate and like I said, Jergen gave it the once over and adjusted the focus to be spot on. Film counter works, althogh I still use the window at the back with modern and thinner films. The leather covering is in good shape with just a few edges on the folding front cover that need to be glued back down. The other issue is the viewfinder window glass is cracked (does not impact operation at all). Also included is a small Tamrac bag that will fit the camera and 3 rolls of film. I won't get back what I have into this great user camera, but I would like to get $200 plus paypal plus shipping which is still taking it in the shorts.USD
    Price : 200.00

    I have one of these cameras -- the coupled rangefinder makes it a great choice for a 6x6 folder. This camera is a steal at $200, even before the cost of the CLA and extras. Somebody's going to get the deal of the year.
