FS: Mamiya C330 w/80mm lens (and some film)

Postby Alastair Moore » 30 Nov 2016, 21:01

I've decided to sell on my Mamiya. It's a fantastic camera and in excellent condition however, I'm just not using it. This is how I see it: if I'm going to go and make photographs, I'll take my 4x5 or my 8x10. I feel like cameras need a purpose and I can't find a purpose for using the Mamiya. If I'm going to make snapshots when I'm out and about and not planning to take photographs of any value, I've got a quite reasonable camera on my phone which serves that purpose. I have tried and tried to incorporate it into my life but failed. I've taken some photographs with it that I really like but overall, it's always an afterthought.

So, looking for $350 for it. Will take a few snaps with my camera phone tomorrow! It is in excellent condition, hardly a mark on it, if any.

Alastair,

I have been waiting to get the funds to purchase a C330 on Ebay but the stuff I am selling doesn't shift, consequently it is on hold.

I'd be wary of throwing the baby out with the bathwater if I were you. The TLR Mamiya system is one of the sharpest and most facile ranges of kit going.

Very impressed that the Mamiya sold so quickly. I have had no such serendipity present in trying to flog a studio flash and a Minolta V meter.

Yeah, had some guy jump on the bus from Wollongong - a 5 hour round trip by public transport. Said he'd go to one of the local cafes to make the journey worth it a bit more. Anyway, he was happy, I see what you were saying but honestly, have hardly touched the thing. Plus I'd rather direct funds into buying sheet film really. It's what I enjoy working with!
