For Sale

From time to time I let go of some gear I’ve collected. I don’t have space to keep everything! This page lists everything available right now.

If you want any of these cameras, use the contact form at the bottom of this page to tell me which and give me your shipping address. I’ll reply with how you can pay me via PayPal, the only form of payment I accept.

If you buy more than one item in a single order I’ll give you a discount because combined shipping is cheaper. If you’re outside the US, you get a different deal: I’ll add to the price to cover actual shipping, which, I warn you, will be super expensive.

I’ve described each camera honestly based on my last usage and recent inspection, but do ask questions if you’re unsure. Each camera has a 60-day warranty against serious undisclosed defect. If within 60 days a fundamental part of the camera, such as the shutter or the light meter, fails under normal use, ship the camera back to me at your expense and I will refund the purchase price.

Olympus XA2

$100 shipped free anywhere in the US

Olympus XA2

Compact 35mm rangefinder camera. See more photos in my review here.

This camera is in good cosmetic condition — it’s definitely been used a lot in its lifetime, but has been reasonably well cared for.

I’ve shot a lot of film in this XA2 and it has always performed like a champ for me. Trouble is, I like my original XA a little bit more, and I really need only one of the two of these cameras.

This camera came to me with an A1L flash unit attached, and I will include it with the camera. However, I don’t warrant the flash unit; I include it as is.

Aires Viscount

35mm rangefinder camera. See more photos in my review here.

This camera is in good cosmetic condition, showing signs of moderate use. There are six Zeiss bumps under the leather on the back cover. The lens is clear and the shutter seems to function properly at all speeds. All controls function as they should.

The camera’s one fault is that the rangefinder patch is dim and sometimes disappears. sometimes the rangefinder image doesn’t appear. I found that pressing my finger into the golden glass area on the front of the camera, and moving that glass around a little, eventually fixes the problem.

Kodak Retina IIc

Kodak Retina IIc

35mm rangefinder camera. See more photos in my review here.

This camera is in okay cosmetic condition, with some flaking of black trim paint and pitting of the body metal. The leather is in good condition, however.

This camera functions properly and is a pleasure to use.

I’m parting with it only because there just isn’t enough time to shoot all of the cameras I own, and this one deserves to be in the hands of someone who will use it.

Kodak Retina IIa

Kodak Retina IIa

35mm rangefinder camera. See more photos in my review here.

This camera is in okay cosmetic condition, with considerable pitting of the body metal. The leather is in decent condition, with some staining and one Zeiss bump on the back.

The controls all function properly.

There must be some haze in the lens, which shows on photographs you make with the camera. I’ve priced the camera accordingly.

Kodak Retinette II

$20 shipped free anywhere in the US

Kodak Retinette II

35mm viewfinder camera. See more photos in my review here.

This camera is in rough cosmetic condition. The controls are a little stiff, but they all function properly otherwise.

The lens suffers from visible haze, and it comes through on photographs. Fortunately, someone very knowledgeable about this camera gave instructions fro cleaning that haze in the comments here.

Sears Tower Flash 120

$20 shipped free anywhere in the US

Sears Tower Flash 120

Box camera for 120 film. See more photos in my review here.

This camera is in good cosmetic and working condition. The only flaw is that the red window on the back came loose, and when I glued it back on, some glue squished out and dried on the window. Fortunately, you can still read the numbers on the film backing paper.

This camera is all metal, and comes with the flash attachment pictured. I don’t warrant the flash attachment; I sell it as is.

This is a fun camera to use, and it performs better than the average box camera. It takes readily available 120 film.
