Here's a Hasselblad 500C body with chimney finder for under $100!!
Strange. I was just thinking of using my tax return to get into medium format with a decent kit. What's the benefit of buying all of the pieces seperate?
Usually a Hassy 500C and a chimney finder goes for about 300-350.
With this body you will need one (or more) film backs and one (or more lenses). A film back could be anywhere between $75 to $200 and a 80mm lens could be had for $250-$450.
I'm gonna sleep on it. If it's still there in the morning, maybe I'll buy it. If not, it wasn't meant to be and I'll buy a Bronica system instead.
I can't believe it's still sitting there.....
OK, so I was tempted by a low priced 4x5 Press camera and found a Linhof Technika this afternoon for a very, very reasonable price. I got it but now I have three 4x5 cameras. A Speed Graphic, a Toyo 45CX and this baby. I'm thinking of putting up for sale the Speed Graphic and a few other collectible items.
Good thing I didn't buy it now. I would've overpaid
