    FS: Polaroid 600SE, Pen EE, Hasselblad Polaroid Back

    The "I just moved and realised how many boxes of cameras I actually have" Sale. Please feel free to ask questions, and rest assured I'm not trying to sell junk. Junk is for giving away.

    Polaroid 600SE
    This is a polaroid 600SE camera (made by Mamiya) with a few problems, none of which are terminal, but priced as such.

    What works:
    -Polaroid back works flawlessly (hurrah!).
    -Rangefinder is bright, clean and clear, but out of alignment. Easy enough to get to and adjust yourself with a screwdriver and a cup of tea.
    -Focus is smooth.

    What, uhh, sorta works:
    -There is no cable running from the trigger in the handle to the lens, so you cant fire the shutter with the trigger. These pop up on ebay surprisingly often, or just fire the shutter at the lens. I never got around to replacing it, as my hand was always there to focus and cock the shutter.
    -The shutter is sticky. High speeds sound alright, the slow speeds, you sit and watch it slowly close the blades in front of you. Needs to be serviced.
    -No click stops for the aperture, but that should be fixable too.
    -Filter ring dent that seems to have been repaired less than perfectly, but I've never tried to mount a filter to it..
    -No dark slide for the polaroid back - I never had it, and I never changed backs, so I pretty much forgot about it.

    So, get your shutter fixed and a new cable and you have a perfectly workable Polaroid 600SE, or there's nothing stopping you using it as is and writing it's problems off as "quirks". Or just splash out and get a whole new lens, the whole line is of great quality.
    These things get up to stupid prices on ebay (I blame the hipsters, personally), so get a bargain here, keep it for parts, or resell it at a profit. They can be adapted to shoot roll film quite happily. Do a bit of googling, it really is a lovely system.

    $100AUD, plus shipping.

    Olympus Pen EE (EL)
    Half frame 35mm, you'll never encounter anything as fun. I bought this at a country town community market from a little old lady years ago. Comes with the original box (matching serial numbers), manual and warranty card. Works a treat, but the film counting arrow came off. If you find another one I'm sure you could transplant it, but it doesnt effect it's operation. Load a roll of film, keep taking photos until the film stops, then rewind it. With 70-odd frames per roll, it's a gorgeous camera just to keep somewhere on hand. My girlfriend also tells me she found it pretty cute when we were first going out, so there's that too.

    $40AUD, plus shipping


    Hasselblad polaroid back
    Okay,just to be clear, this polaroid back does not suit any film that is currently available.
    It's for the old square format polaroid peel apart film which was discontinued years ago. I've never encountered any for sale. See, the idea I had was that I'd get an old pack of the film, use the plastic film pack shell as a holder, load glass plates in it, and shoot it as a wet plate back for a hasselblad. I've not done any of that, and it's sat on my bookshelf behind some other stuff I never use for quite a while. Sold as a collector's item, or I'm sure you'll find equally inventive things to do with it.
    Not a clue what this is worth, if $30 is really offensive feel free to make me an offer.

    $30AUD, plus shipping.

    PayPal or Bank Deposit is fine, I'll absorb any fees. I'm in Adelaide, South Australia - contact me for a shipping quote.
