    Konica Instant Press - What's a fair price?

    Hello, I have offered my digital gear to trade for a Konica Instant Press. I have placed a tentative value on my gear of around $1000. What would the Instant Press run???

    Thanks,

    John

    Wow, that's hard to say. Call Greg Weber (www.webercamera.com). He's "Mr. Konica". He'll know for sure. He may even have one.

    He barely answers email. He's a great guy and everyone (including me) will suggest you just call him. He'll talk for hours! I have had all my Konica's CLA'ed by him. I know the Instant Press is one of the collectable Konicas around. Good luck! Have you looked at the Polaroid 600 or the Mamiya one? I think the Polaroid uses the Mamiya lenses but I don't know much about them.

    Where did you find one? I have always wanted one. I think Fuji should come out with a packfilm camera now that they are selling packfilms to the USA.

    Hello,
    I have watched a few in the past month or 2 on ebay and they seem to sell in the 5-700$ range. I hope that helps. There is one for sale as we speak.

    Since Fuji sells packfilm, I wish they would start selling a packfilm camera again!
