No stress. @chak any interest before I put it on ebay’s £1 max listing fees this weekend?
Sorry my man, I'll pass as well. It was an idea for a 30th birthday present, but they didn't seem receptive to the subliminal hints of photography.
Also, what the hell, I haven't had any £1 listings since before lockdown!
Want to swap for Bronica SQ-Am with 80mm F2.8 or Nikonos V with 35mm and some cash?
Looking for £350 for the Bronica and £250 for the Nikonos if anyone is keen.
Afraid not! I need cash not cameras.
By the way, I owned a Calypso (the Cousteau-designed camera Nikon bought out to build the original Nikonos) and a Nikonos II or III. Fun for what they are.
Fair enough, I'm in a similar situation but the last RB67 was probably the best medium format camera I've owned, image quality wise.
Of all the medium formats I’ve had, it’s the one I kept.
I loved the Pentax 67II but it was a monster. Hasse 500C great for travel, poor for focusing in low light. Rollei TLR’s, limited. Bronica RF645, limited. Various folders... and so on and so on.... RB67 is the one. Never missed a beat.
Mamiya 7 is a dream if you can get hold of one without a second mortgage.
Anyone interested in a x-mount Mitakon 35mm f0.95 ?
Amazing lens but not sure it's for me
More info here: https://jonasraskphotography.com/2017/03/22/mitakon-35mm-f0-95-mk2-review/
How'd you get on with the lens? I'm just not sure how I would find wide open manually focusing.
It’s amazing when you nail focus but as I’m not that good it and my kids are even worse at sitting still, I’m contemplating sacrificing some speed for autofocus
But for street, portraits etc I think it’d be a fantastic lens. Tbh if you have funds, but it and give it a go, you shouldn’t lose much, if any, when you sell it
Epson V500 for sale. Bought it off @YeahNerdz a while back. Obviously I didn't end up scanning all my MF negs to become a pro, so it's for sale again.
BUT: all the masks are there, but I can't find the cables or power supply. I'll keep on looking, they may turn up, but be prepared that they may not.
£100 posted (registered and well packed) uk, or £90 if you pick it up from my address in Norwood Green, UB2 (Southall BR or Hounslow tube are nearest).
Well, we have finally closed Mrs B's studio, it would seem that portrait photography in a time of Covid is no longer in great demand. She has found new employ after a brief attempt at streetwalking (the refunds were killing us).
So we now have for sale:
Studio Stand: Manfrotto 190, RRP £1200
Lighting: Bowens 500 twin head kit RRP £1500, Bowens 500 single head kit RRP £750, Wein SSR transmitter and ultra slave, Sekonic Flashmate L308B, Includes umbrellas, light box and 3 honeycomb filters.
The Lot: £1000
Collection/delivery to be arranged at cost.
Everything in perfect working order, camera and wife not included in sale.
Man that sucks. Are you sure you shouldn't hold on to the kit for a year and see how it pans out? That's some quality kit there so won't be super straight forward to replace without forking out. I'd imagine prices on kit like this has dropped recently as well?
Thanks for the kind thoughts, but that chapter of life has definitely ended, all the props and backdrops have gone and it's just this lot which must go too. Sure, it was a sad time but at least she no longer works 6 days a week plus evening post-production and all for a relative pittance.
Fair enough. Onwards and upwards!
Still looking for a used fuji x100. Either an x100 or x100s. £300-350 ish. Cheers.
