    WTB: "Beater" TLR or Folding Camera (Medium Format)

    I am looking for a TLR or Folding Camera (with coupled rangefinder hopefully). A meter is not needed, cosmetically it could like like crap, as long as it works PERFECTLY. Bellows should be good, no light leaks or holes, shutter works as it should and no fungus in the lens. I am not looking for any particular model or brand. And it should produce negatives that are 6x6 or larger. If you have one, please PM me with price and a details about it, and pictures if available. Thank you.

    PS: If you have the Praktisix, Pentacon 6, or whatever variations it has, please let me know as I am considering that too.

    I have a few...

    I was watching hoarders last night an realized I have a problem.
    I have TWO extra Richo Diacords...one working great the other taken apart due to sticky shutter. I thought about recovering it in colored snake skin or something.


    $135 for both Richo (this is my favorite TLR I have another I am keeping, very decent lens)

    I have a Ziess Ikon that is older and words great. ($55)

    I can send you a photo or two of whichever you are interested in.

    I have a Yashica D beater that I would leave for cheap. PM me if you want photos.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Right now I can offer an Ensign Auto Range 220 (coupled rangefinder, distances in feet, Ensar triplet on 8-speed Epsilon shutter, automatic counter anddual format 6x6 & 6x4.5), a Hapo 66E (aka Balda Mess Baldax, uncoupled rangefinder, distances in meters, Pronto shutter with Haponar 75/3.5 lens, automatic frame counter, only for 6x6) and an Adox Golf (nice 6x9 viewfinder camera, also dual format although I don't have its mask, Schneider-Kreuznach Radionar 105/4.5 lens on Prontor-SV with the distances in meters)

    They all work, of course. Let me know if you are interested in any and I can send you pictures from the camera and taken with the camera. I'm based in Europe, though.
