For most of us, this is the ultimate rollfilm camera. Mamiya RB67 Professional body, 3 lenses, 3 lenscaps, 3 collapsable lens shades, 3 rollbacks, revolving back adapter, 2 viewing screens, 2 viewing hoods, L-grip, double cable release, quick release tripod mount with sockets for 3/8-16TPI and 1/4-20TPI tripod screws, Polaroid back, Mamiya case with keys. 90mm F3.8, 180mm F4.5 and 250mm F4.5 lenses with between the lens shutters that will strobe synch at any speed. One viewing hood is collapsable. The other viewing hood has a built in light meter that is not working even though the battery compartment has no corrosion. The case foam is in good condition and was obviously factory laser cut for this particular outfit. All 3 lenses accept 77mm filters. One rollfilm back is without a darkslide. One lenscap does not fit snugly onto the lens. There are 2 rear lenscaps. There is no body cap. Otherwise all is very clean and functional. Mamiya lenses are great! 6X7 is the "ideal format." The body is mechanical; it requires no battery to operate. It is possible to put other brand lenses onto the camera. I have seen one with a Fujinon soft focus lens on it. Mamiya made other focal length lenses for the camera, including a macro lens. Extension tubes were made for the camera. The P adapter that is with the Polaroid back will also allow you to use Mamiya Press backs on the camera. Package price is $1200. Individual items are available separately; make me an offer please.

A NOTE ABOUT THE COUPLING OF THE PENTAX 6X7 BODY WITH THE METER PRISM. There is a finger in the meter prism that needs to couple with a corresponding receiver in the body. I am pointing to the receiver with an awl. The chrome finger is easy to see in the meter prism. If these do not couple your meter may appear not to work. If there is a lens on the body when you remove the meter prism, the receiver will not be in position to couple with the finger when you remount the prism and the meter will not work. The solution is to remove the lens, then mount the prism on the body. The finger is spring loaded and always goes all the way to the one end of the meter prism. The receiver is also spring loaded, but couples with the lens' F-stop. The receiver only goes all the way to the end when the lens is removed. The camera in this photo is serial number 4121509.

The whole Hasselblad system remains as useful today as the day it was made because these cameras will accept digital backs. Digital backs were made for the Hasselblad because it was and is a most professional system. This is a really big deal. Many digital backs were made to fit directly onto a Hasselblad. With virtually all other medium format cameras, an expensive adapter is required. An adapter in the system is a source of play and misalignment. In case you are thinking of using the below listed SWC as a body that accepts a digital back with the lens of your choice, the distance from the body front chrome lens mount to the film is about 32mm. For instance, if you wanted to use a Nikon lens on the body, Nikon mount to film distance is 46.2mm That gives you 14mm to spare.
HASSELBLAD SUPER WIDE, '56 body with 12 exposure rollback, w/o lens or focusing mount or shutter or viewfinder, knob advance only, accepts old style cable release only, shutter release below lens, bubble level on top, 1/4-20 TPI tripod socket only, $OLD, lens still available: The lens was mounted onto a Sinar Handy which you will find on my Sinar list.

AGFA COLOR-MAGNOLAR 105mm F4.5 coated enlarging lens in high quality helical focusing mount on lensboard for Agfa Varioscope 60 enlarger. Clean glass. A Schneider lens cap fits it and is included with it; very likely it is a Schneider lens. Mounted with 4 screws. Would be easy to mount to any flat lens board. Would make a great macro lens for a camera. Would allow you to use the lens on enlargers that a lens w/o a focusing mount would not work upon. Diaphragm has click stops. I have considered mounting the lens on a Hasselblad or a Pentax 6X7. $300

Hasselblad digital or film adapter carrier frame. This is a partially completed Hasselblad adapter. It could be used as a rear carrier frame for a view camera such as the Plaubel Peco Jr. or some other small format view camera. The back side has 2 light trap ridges to mate with the corresponding depressions on the film back. Connecting hardware will need to be added to hold the back on the camera. It will need to be black anodized, maybe even flocked on the front side. Many of the earlier megapixel backs were designed to fit the Hasselblad and can be had for very reasonable prices. The Hasselblad is still just a box camera, however. Mount this carrier frame on a view camera rear standard and you will have something. You cannot take a box camera image and transform it using Photoshop without losing quality. You have to make your camera adjustments in the camera to achieve professional results. A lot of work went into machining this. It is a bargain @ $200
Hasselblad folding focusing hood, Mint-, $50
Hasselblad NC2 prism, with rubber eyeglass ring, perfect glass, no dings or dents, some slight scratches in paint, EX/EX+, $275
Note: If you've been considering a Kiev prism instead of an NC2, I suggest you reconsider. The Kiev prism is a loose fit. It rattles and can easily slip out when removing a film magazine.

Camera base slips into quickrelease mount and extension tube slips into machined plate at top of bellows assembly. Hasselblad is in perfect alignment when bellows assembly is in center detent position; it is possible to swivel whole camera/bellows assembly off center. Large MP4 bellows mean there will be no problem with image degrading light bouncing off the bellows. Designed for use with your view camera lenses on Sinar boards. See COPY CAMERA LIST.

ROLLEIFLEX FRONT SURFACE MIRROR. A customer sent me his Rollei for cleaning, lubing and adjusting. The primary complaint was that the shutter was tired and sticky. I had that work done and looked over the camera as well. The customer did not even know that his viewing lens mirror was in such deteriorated condition. I photographed the original mirror in the camera. After installing a new mirror, I could no longer focus on the perfect mirror that only reflected light, but instead focused on the ground glass focusing screen. I had to cut down the strobe power by 1 1/3 stops to get the right exposure; that is how much light the deteriorated mirror was losing. I have additional mirrors in stock ready to ship to you for your installation @ $50, or I will install for you @ $100 including an internal cleaning of the upper chamber of your camera and I will also look over your camera as a whole and suggest any other work that may need to be done. I can also supply mirrors for other cameras. I have a mirror in stock for a 4X5 Super D Graflex SLR. I can custom cut mirrors for you. The mirrors in the photo appear blue because there is a protective covering on them; on top of the pile of new mirrors is the original deteriorated mirror. I cannot guarantee that the mirrors that I have in stock will fit your particular camera unless I install them as different models of cameras may have different mirrors.

Panoramic panhead, for segmented panoramics, has 6 click stops @ 60 degree intervals, 1/4-20 threads top and bottom, Delrin with metal camera stud, suitable for making segmented panoramics with 55mm lenses on 6X7cm, 65mm lenses on 6X9cm, 28mm lenses on 35mm, and other combinations in other formats, 1.2" tall, 2.64" diameter, 4 ounces, Mint, $125 Note: custom panheads also available. Want one with 4, 5, 7, 8, or any other # of click stops, 3/8-16 threads top and/or bottom, larger diameter--no problem. Illustrated is a 5 position panhead on a Dietzgen tripod (found on tripod list). So why would you want such an item? Because you can do panoramics with ease and precision. You could do the same thing with a degree marked pan head, but you would have to unlock the pan movment, walk around the tripod, visually set the camera position and relock the pan movement each time. With this panhead, you merely turn the camera to the next click stop and shoot. Foolproof! You can print the images and mount them side-by-side with space in between the images; this method results in no distortion. This method is much like looking out from a gazebo. The alternative is to shoot more images with a lot of overlap and stitch the images together in an image editing program; this result is much like shooting with a swinging lens camera or a rotating camera. You get distortion, but no space between images. Presently I have in stock pan heads with 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10 click stops. Although I could make a pan head with a large number of click stops that would give you several options, I do not recommend it because it would no longer be foolproof. The series of images below were made with a 55mm lens on a 6X7cm camera with a 6 position panhead.
with 58mm F5.6 Konica Hexanon lens in modern all black Copal shutter mounted on lenscone with 6X9cm Grafic rollholder and Konica optical VF. the most compact camera possible; the rear of the body is smaller than the rollback, tapering from the rectangular rollback to the circular shutter. Focused at the Hyperfocal distance of 15', the image is in focus from 4' to infinity @ F22, 2' to infinity @ F45. Lens is very soft at larger apertures and very sharp at smaller apertures, moderately sharp inbetween; where else can you find a soft focus wideangle lens. An excellent segmented panoramic camera--5 images gives you 360 degrees. Vignettes slightly at corners. Last 2 images were made with this camera. Weighs only 2#! VF sold. The accessory shoe remains. It is easy to make your own VF using a door viewer. $350.
