    Is $140 the fair pirce for my Mamiya Six IV?

    Recently I got an offer for my Mamiya six IV, it is $140. My mamiya six IV is mint - condition, only problem is 1/2s, 1s shutter speed are lit bittle slow. It comes with a good condition case and lens hood and a yellow filter. I like to know if $140 is a fair price for people in US, Europe, Australian and Japan. here are some photos.

    I'd check eBay and see what they've been going for. I know I'd pay that if I was in the market for one.

    My gut tells me that it is low, but I can't really find much to justify my belief. Camera$ on eBay has a Mamiya 6 for $763.98, but their prices are routinely so ridiculous that they mean almost nothing. Also, theirs looks to be the IVB, a newer variant, I am guessing, and I am not sure how that effects pricing on these. I would probably also jump all over the chance to get one in that kind of condition for that price.

    I too would buy it instantly at this price. Heck, I'll offer you $150 for it right here and now.

    I've paid $100AUD for a non-working one for parts, so I think your price is reasonable. Or I'm stupid. Either way, you're doing well.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    just asking for fair price

    The story is that I read a post and one guy was looking for Mamiya six desperately for good one and wreck one. I have two of them, one is I posted and another has dead shutter and broke anti double exposure(screwd that is used to fix the part to camera body was broken, that should be much easily fixed by a repair man). The guy offered me 120-140 for mint- one and 70 for broke one. I told him that may far below market price and he told me the market price may be higher in China where I live. So I just want to know what is the fare price for oversea such as US and Europe or Australian. I also post broke one photo here.

    thanks John. I will prefer to sell the camera as whole piese instead of taking the parts from camera to sell.

    zack or flutot might be able to bring your shutter back to life,
    if you don't sell and want to invest in it ...

    good luck !
