Bargains Someone Should Buy
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
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 !!!
Two of my students were encouraged to buy a set of 2 mamiya RZ67 pro2 with 4 RZ lenses and heaps of equipment to follow... well by me
and other stuff less expensive
Pricetag was 7500 danish "kroner" - or 1000 euro
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
Last year i bought a brandnew Rollei 6008 integral with 50mm and 80mm and stuff for 6000 kroner - 850 Euro
This is crazy - but i love these bargains

Do you know what it was, was it a modern post war print.

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
