For Sale: 70mm backs for Pentax 645 + viewfinder

Discussion in 'Pentax' started by Willem-Jan Markerink, Aug 17, 2003.

  1. For Sale:

    - 2x 70mm back for Pentax 645-series cameras; accepts standard 70mm
    cartridges, filled with 15ft long rolls of 70mm perforated film. 90
    exposures on one roll without changing....a gift from heaven for all
    winter/skiing photographers[*]....;))

    - 1 Viewfinder extension (designed for the 70mm back)

    Outside cosmetical condition of all items is mint, one back even
    appears mint/unused inside, the other shows very minor wear, probably
    not more than a dozen rolls. You won't find a better set on the used
    market.

    Backs are US$500 each, viewfinder US$150, buy all for US$900.
    Prices each are about 3/5 of B&H's listings, combination is less than
    1/2.
    Offers are welcome, but the first US$500/900 takes it....;))

    Email:


    [*] especially those involved with Kodak infrared film....even though
    it can be cut down to 120/220, it still requires a darkload
    bag....and that's no fun on a steep skislope....:)) Also interesting,
    for those already owning Pentax 6x7 gear/lenses: there is an adapter
    to mount 6x7 lenses on 645 bodies....a nice solution to use the 6x7
    (ED) tele lenses with 70mm and/or infrared....

    I have one of these mongrel things...
    A long way from being reliable and prey tell... Where in Australia can you
    buy daylight negative film? For that matter, where in Australia can you buy
    film?...

  3. How can you say it is not reliable, if you don't even have a proper film
    supply?

    Anyway, do you mean 70mm perforated in general, and daylight in specific?
    Try any aerial photography suppliers, they and/or the photographers
    themselves might even have surplus film.

    Normally I would also point/invite you to the Infrared Photography
    Mailinglist, as there are several Australian photographers present there
    too, who could probably point you in the right direction, but the
    mailinglist is currently crippled, by not accepting admin-commands
    (including subscribe), due to massive spam-floods to the admin
    adress....just keep trying these instructions in a week or so:

    70 mm perforated film.
    Tears across the perforations and leaves half the roll wasted.
    Have to get it out in a dark bag.

  5. Try aerial film, much thinner, while also much stronger.
    (but not everyone likes the curl when developing, but there is no way around
    that with infrared film, as these are all of aerial origin)
