    Buying/getting hold of an RB67

    Hi all

    I am very very close to buying mysef a RB67 pro s. Now I just need places to look for it. I live in Denmark and so far i haven't found a single one. Therefore I am searching the internet. ive used KEH.com before and I am thinking of during it again, they seem to stock the RB67 most of the time. Is there any other place I should look?

    Best regards

    Kim

    There's always eBay. It isn't uncommon to see RB67 outfits sell there for good prices.

    Best,

    That seems very reasonable! does that include back and viewfinder as well ? And is the lens a C ?

    I would say that a basic RB67 might be had for $200, but a good one might cost you a bit more. The RB's were mainly workhorse studio cameras and many of them have high mileage. Don't buy the cheapest one you find - make sure it is in good working order and not worn out.

    That being said, the RB's are likely the best deal gong in MF SLR's right now.

    When buying an RB67 you have to be sure there is some sort of return policy since there are so many old cameras in dire need of service, you can get stuck with a real lemmon. If you want a camera that "works" n has a return policy, buy KEH, it's your best bet. Since you are so far out, if you buy something with $50 shipping, it may not be worth trying your luck with a private guy on E-Bay. I always see great deals on RBs like this... http://photo.net/gc/view-one?classified_ad_id=859490 on PhotoNet. You have to keep your eyes opened n be careful who you are dealing with.

    BTW if you do buy a camera, it may be worth having a reapirmen take a look at it before your return policy runs out. They are familiar with the camera n know what may need service in the near future.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    A 90mm C lens with that fetches just over that (225?). I've seen non-c 90mm w/ viewfinder and 6x7 back go for $150 shipped.

    I keep waiting. Sooner or later I'll buy something.
