    Why just tiny little negatives on much larger film?!

    There is nothing you can take with that camera that won't be much better on an 8x10!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I usually love a good excuse to buy a camera at a great price.
    I've never appreciated the 645 Concept, and the imaginary limitations
    I've imposed on that format. Maybe, someday if the price is right ...

    Would this be the Price is Right price?

    I own the 1000s and think for a 645, it is hard to go wrong at $200.

    JDog -

    I am a little suspicious of his concern re warranty that made him cancel this on ebay....my alarm would go off....why wd the seller think someone wd want to return this? Does it all work?

    Get a 3-7 day inspection period, run a roll, dev it, call it a day, this is a good deal....good luck JDog on CL, I did well getting my 1000s there too!

    Join the APUG group for M645s when you get it home...we wd love to have you!

    J-Dogg, and I are also Facebook Friends.
    And someday he will be my wedding photographer, if Camille can ever
    decide when, and where she will be getting married ...
    When J-Dogg first joined APUG, I harrased him nonstop, until he became a Subscriber !

    I just hate to see that Floridian F!@#$%r getting such great deals on camera equipment

    Don't know why 645 gets little love here.
    i actually like it. Still immensely portable but the IQ advantage of 135 is sure evident to me even in 8x10s.
    The tones are just smoother.

    agree Bruce, I shoot 35 and 645 a ton, and it is a treat to print a 645 neg! It is 2.5 times bigger, heck that has gotta account for something. Yeah 6x6 is even bigger but....heak $200?! I'd be in my car....

    Question: Don't some of these Mamiyas use funky batteries that are hard to come by?

    There's a Mamiya for sale in the consignment case at my local camera store but I have not taken a closer look at it because I hear that the battery might be hard to replace.

    Spending money on a camera that could end up being mothballed for lack of a battery isn't a very palatable proposition to me.

    Is this true or have I been getting a line?
