[SOLD] Mamiya 645 1000s (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Mamiya 645 1000s

Asking Price
$175 shipped insured USA

Item Location
Ontario, California

Item Description
I have been going through things, and I have way too much camera gear, so some stuff must go!

What I am selling (as a package) is:
(pictured items)
1 Mamiya 645 1000s body & wind knob - top of the line for the metal m645's!
1 Mamiya Sekor C 80mm f2.8 lens & generic front cap
1 Mamiya non-metered prism
(items not pictured)
1 pair of strap attachments
1 black and blue-grey Mamiya strap
2 220 inserts, converted to 120 upon request

It has some brassing here and there, and some of the vinyl is starting to peel, but it works great. I have put film through this camera before, and based on my experience it meters properly and the frame spacing is good. I have noticed after a long examination that the aperture blades are ever so slightly slow to open after exposure, but they are 100% clean and I can honestly say that I don't see how it could ever affect exposure, as the Mamiya 645 uses a linkage that forces the lens to stop down. I've certainly never had any problems. From a user standpoint I see no reason anyone would be disappointed in this camera. Like I said above, I can convert one or both of the film inserts to 120 for you. It just takes a very small philips screwdriver and a few seconds to convert each one, so it is no trouble either way.

Edit: one thing I forgot is that for some reason one of the strap clips only fits one side and even then it's a bit tight.

I'm going to leave it on here a few days and then it's off to eBay, where the price will go up, so let me know soon if you are interested. I'll even throw in a roll of 100 speed black & white if you ask real nice!

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
