    The 180s sometimes go for under a hundred dollars on eBay. Probably the principle reason is the 12 foot minimum focusing distance. Great for distance shots, but a little less practical for people photography.

    I'm drooling over that Rapid Omega 220 back. It looks to be in very nice shape.

    Well, I bought it and received it over the weekend. It seems a little more worn than you could tell in the photos, but mostly just the 120 back. However, I was under the impression that it was ready to go. I emailed the seller because the rangefinder is a little out of wack. He said it had be quite sometime since he used it, but all was good when he put it down. Whatever, I'm still excited about it and the adjustments seems to be pretty easy to get to, but I am reluctant to start turning on it until I see some sort of break down on the camera.

    Does anyone have a location on a repair manual for this camera? (Omega Rapid M) Apparently the M came before the 100 and 200. I have a manual for the 100 and 200 but there is no mention of the M in it and it is a users manual. I would like to see an exploded drawing of sorts if possible.

    Thank You,
    Jody

    Good Evening, Jody,

    Some years ago, I purchased a manual on E-Bay. I can't recall the seller or the location. There's very little difference between the M and the 200.
