FS: Mamiya Super 23 Press Camera s/ 100mm Lens & 6x9 Back
For sale is this complete and functional Mamiya Super 23 Kit...
This is the body with tiltable bellows, allowing you to change the focus plane for landscape shots or any funky creative things you might think of. It can also act as a tiltable extension for macro shooting.
Included are the Super 23 body, left hand grip, 100mm/3.5 collapsible Sekor lens with front cap and 6x9 back with darkslide.
- Cosmetically good condition with wear and tear and some dents in the top cover (common - the frameline selector still works fine). Some of the leatherette is peeling at the edges. The nameplate has fallen off, although I found it and will glue it back on.
- Rangefinder is accurate. Viewfinder has a slight bit of haze but is very usable and the rangefinder patch has good contrast and is easy to focus with.
- Lens is scratch free with the usual dust specks inside. Shutter and aperture are working fine and focus is smooth although sometimes a little stiff at the start because the grease is probably getting dry. Not a problem in use though.
- Back is very clean inside and works properly with good spacing (takes 120 and 220 film!). The foam seals are getting sticky but I didn't experience any problem with light leaks.
- Grip and cable release work properly.
This is a great way to get into medium format with a big 6x9 negative!

Paypal is gladly accepted and I'll cover the fees. Because this is a heavy beast, shipping outside of North America will unfortunately be expensive.
