    FS: Mamiya-6

    This is a pre-1950 Mmaiya-6 folding 6x6. It has a coupled range finder, no meter, focusing attained via thumb wheel and moving internal film plane(awesome technology for its day). Has a Zuiko 7.5cm/f3.5 lens, speeds of B-1/500 Seikosha Rapid shutter. Film exposure counter along with a red window on the rear door. Multi exposure capable, also has exposure flag when shot has been taken, and a release lever to advance film(which also resets the exposure flag). Range finder is accurate and easily seen. Has DOF scale coupled to range finder scale on top. There is an accessory shoe, not flash capable(no connection on shutter). There is a crack in the view finder window, does not interfere with view or focus. Comes with original leather case, which is in vg condition considering the age. Bottom of camera is marked with "made in occupied Japan". Leatherette cover is in vg condition.Appearance wise, I would rate this at 8.5-9 out of 10 , function wise it is close to spot on as a new camera.

    $175usd plus shipping and insurance, paypal or USPS money order accepted, as always I cover pp fees

    this is a wonderful camera!
    i had one for a long while and put about 300 maybe more rolls of film through it.
    probably the best MF camera i have ever owned. and this is a DEAL !

    if i wasn't money-poor and camera-rich and responsible for feeding my family, id buy this in a heartbeat, i miss mine!

    good luck with your sale rick!

    john

    ps if/ when traveling and the camera is packed,
    put it in the ever ready case, the wind knob is the achilles heel of this camera ..
    and whatever you do, don't send it to certo 6 for repair, he has no idea
    how to work on this camera ( if you buy this and want the gory details PM ME ),
    zack's ( apug sponsor!! ) works on them and does great work.
