This camera belonged to my grandfather, and my dad dug it out to show me. Original paperwork, lotsa goodies, all in all a pretty cool find. I don't want to sell it, I just want to know anything and everything I can about it. Since the POTN forum is my primary resource for my own DSLR needs, I thought I could try my luck with this here aswell.
I would appreciate any help in terms of knowing the approx. value of things, rarity, whatever. There are a bunhc of other things that belong to a Leica that was stolen, if anyone's wondering about that stuff when looking at the pics.
I appreciate the help.

awesome! It looks in great condition. I know the body probably ranges from 100-150 not sure about the lens (what lens is it?) . I wouldnt sell it just because its a camera your grandfather used.


And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

Thanks Izak. How about the lenses, or the extension tube?

I'm going to take the camera and goodies into a shop (Macbain Camera in Edmonton) when I get back to the city after the holidays, just to get everything cleaned maybee appraised if its worth it, maybee try even get some film, I don't know, it's just a really cool find/surpise.

hmmm. I think its a Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm 2.8. I just checked ebay and it was selling for like 200. I could be totally off on the prices here though :D.

Awesome, thanks guys.
I'm surprised at how cheap or of little value everything is worth, but, thats the way it goes.

So, if I wanted to make this camera digital, that is what would cost me an arm and a leg, correct?
From what I understand I'm looking at spending anywhere from 9k to 35k for a digital back? Or can i even get one for this model?

Put some slide film in it to make sure it's exposing properly. Do the same for any other lenses (presumably the shutter is in-lens).

And probably a few children.

Not sure. If they've changed the back in 40+ years, probably won't work.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I read this reference on another board...it's dated material so I don't know if a digital back is still available but it was a couple of years ago

I would not think about a digital back. This is an awesome camera, so do some research and learn how to use it. Looks like a 135mm lens to go with that 80, and a 16 exposure 6x4.5cm film back.

Do your homework, pick up some 120 negative film, and have fun. However, it can be a little challenging to find a lab to process that film these days.

I agree with cowpix. Go buy some film and get busy. Me, I'd shoot transparency instead of neg but YMMV... Just go have some fun with it!!!

Definately a great set you got there :) Go get some film and have fun with it like what was said before! My dad just found his Canon AE-1 that he used to take my baby pictures a little bit ago. Im getting it cleaned and gonna give it a whirl in a bit. That thing is as old as I am! The Speedlight 177A still works hehe.

I'll give you 50 bucks for it. That's a lot of money coming from an American whose dollar isn't worth ****.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)

I'll give you 50 POUNDS for it! (about $100)

It's practically worthless, so just send it all to me (I'll even pay the postage) and I'll 'look after it' for you ;)

Seriously, thats a nice bit of kit! - A classic Hasselblad - I'd run a film or two through it and see what it produces.
