    Just bought a new 180 for my RB from KEH as I have been wanting one for a while.

    I found the new lenses on KEH and they do seem like a good deal, but was wondering where you are seeing new RB bodies listed ? Certainly, I could be tempted into buying a kit ...

    ffordes has some Hasselbad stuff and Jacobs has some listed on their pre-owned site http://www.jacobsdigital.co.uk/t-preownedequipment.aspx (go the end of the PDF for the new stuff).

    You can also try Nicholas cameras in Mornington Crescent although I can't stand the attitude and it is impossible to find anything in there.

    I can't believe I paid so much for a 1980s Hasselblad.
    The only true bargains I'm seeing now are in the KEH clearance of new lenses. I got a boxed NOS RB67 Pro S kit(minus lens) about 18 months ago for about US$120. Lots of used/heavily used stuff around, as usual, but is it really a buy if it's beat to hell? It's a hard sell in some markets. Still, the big auction site usually has between 450-500 RB listings.

    I'm taking advantage of this myself. Sorry, but I use the cameras with high school students who love the format. So if I can get another camera with a good lens for a low price, it just adds up and helps me build future analog photographers.

    Makes sense. A few friends have barged witlessly into MF, bought junk gear against advice, then whined when it broke or malfunctioned. Getting nice RB gear is easier at the moment, so why not go for it? My RB gets more use than its 645 and 6x6 shelfmates.

    I just ordered an "as-is" RB67 body from KEH for a whopping $1.29 US. Apparently it needs a new bellows but this will be a nice learning project for me. It has no finder, screen, or revolving back adapter so I will be starting from scratch. I'm also looking at getting some of KEH's new or like-new RB stuff, but their bargain prices are wonderful. The RB67 is a great camera and I wish I had never sold my first one.

    People dump em because repairing them is more expensive than buying another used one. So why are there so many still out there? I can tell you I have brought back many of those RBs from the dead. They just won't lay down n die that easily, maybe out last all of us. Why are they so cheap? Cuz no one wants a big heavy clunker, they want a branded name, Hassy... that is till they try one an RB n see how nice they really are.

    Shhhhhhh... don't tell too many people how great RBs are. Once the demand goes up, so does the price.



    .

    I hope anyone dumping dead ones will send them to me beofore the land fill gets em?
