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.

A guy in our club bought a print for one euro at a car boot sale and sold in on for UK£ 1250.00 the other week. Now thats a bargin.

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 :) I'm very tempted !!!

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

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

BlueLemon,

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 ;)

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.
