Gotta stop buying cameras ! Still haven't tested about 12 cameras with film...and it's been depressing in that so far 30-50% of cameras don't work right...

...But each old outfit/camera that does work...is a joy.

Got rid of my bulky Century Graphic(6X7).Many years ago had a Pentax 6x7 outfit.

I really like medium format/120...and it's cameras.

So,I'm hoping...I'm hoping.

Could have easily spent 6-$800.00

First I purchaased the lens...@ $235.00 shipping included.
How could ANYONE pass that up !!

Then I decided to jump on an offer...that I was putting offers on...so as not to loose it - I paid full - it was lowest price out there - and had a 65mm wide angle lens I could sell to make up some bucks;
actually sell too the 220 645 back it comes with...so selling lens will easily pay for 6X7 back....
- so I spent a wopping $359.00 shipping included on;

GS-1 w 65mm, prism,and 645(220) back (guess that is $600.00 !!)
the 65mm lens should sell,and sell for $125.-$225.00
which will pay for the E++ cond. 6X7 back I also have on the way(@ $110.00)
and the 645 220 should bring $20.00 or more.

My 50mm is said to be in "very good" cond..A mint one went for $445.00
And most outfits are starting at $500.ish

I did OK AS LONG AS THE STUFF WORKS !!!!!!!!!!!

And get this...I could have saved over $600.00
- being content with my Bronica SQa w 40mm
And I love square format!
