    Mamiya Universal dream kit

    OK, so I just realized that I'm really pimping my 2x3 Century Graphic, which is leading me away from my Mamiya Universal kit (which is wonderful). Instead of letting it rot, I would like somebody to have it, preferably as a kit, but if I don't get a bite, I might parse it out. This is a feeler ad. Photos to come later.

    Kit includes:

    • Mamiya Univerisal "Press" camera, with grip, shutter release, good, calibrated rangefinder.
    • 6x9 roll film back (with winder, slightly problematic but perfectly useable)
    • 2x polaroid backs, beautiful.
    • the wonderful 100mm f2.8 lens, great condition
    • the fabulous 50mm f6.3 lens with lens shade and view finder, great condition

    I'm thinking a clean 1G for this entire kit, net to me.

    A couple of addenda: The 100/2.8 also comes with a shade. I'm going to keep one of the Polaroid backs. Everything else remains the same. Photos later

    What would you want for the grip, 100mm f/2.8, and polaback (individual prices)? I'm in desperate need of a grip, the other two are more or less wants.

    I'm currently not desperate and I want to keep these together.

    I do have an extra grip that has a faulty shutter release, though, if you're interested. Basically, the thin rod at the end doesn't extend far enough out and will not depress the shutter. You can try to fix it, or, since it's the version of the grip where the shutter release cable is detachable (I believe these are later model grips), you can look for a replacement cable. Alternatively, you can velcro tape a different cable onto the grip like I was doing till I got a replacement grip

    Let me know if you're interested in that. $25 plus shipping & PP.

    Interesting. Yeh I'm having the same problem with mine; it won't extend all the way. I've been looking to replace the cable release but I've only ever seen a replacement part for it ONCE and I was on the phone when the auction ended so I missed it :/ I think I'll give the velcro/cable combo a try.

    Do you have any sample Polaroids with each of the lens (I know the 100 doesn't really cover)? Thanks!

    Actually the 100/2.8 does barely cover 3x4, at least at portrait/near-portrait distances. The 50mm, on the other hand, falls a little short.

    I can take a few more sample shots if you're interested
