    Hey there,

    I was just at salvation army and picked up this ikoflex kit for $75. Any idea on what it is worth? I am saving up for a hasselblad, and was hoping this could take a chunk out of it.

    Kodak 35mm metal film canister.
    Remote shutter release.
    Dujur Light meter and case
    Sixtomat light meter and case
    Zeiss Ikon clear filter w/ f=1m on the top of it.
    Diamond gadg-it leather bag.
    Kodapod camera mount with leather case. (quite rusty)
    Full Heiland flash unit.
    NOS tiffen lens shade.

    Camera Details...

    You got an Ikoflex IIa 855-16, first production run was in 1953 and it was a re-designed IIa model, which was released initially in 1950.

    The price you paid is a fair price, considering all the extras. You could get about $100 on eBay.

    All that being said, there are other Ikoflexes on eBay for lots of money but they don't sell.

    I'd use this camera before selling it!

    You scored a fine picture-taker. And, it looks like a beauty!
