A mint condition Kodak proback 645M (Mamiya fit). Will work with the 645AF and the 645AFD I/II/III, or I believe a view camera.
This 16MP back comes with the IR filter and has been on my camera since being bought following a professional clean (I've not had cause to remove it), let's just say it has a clean sensor with no dirt or scratches and no dead pixels either.
It comes in the origional Kodak soft case with:
- The mamiya viewfinder insert with the sensor crop marks etched in.
- Two Batteries and an international universal charger - the origional for the camera.
- A Lexar 2GB CF card to get you going.
- Digital back cover.
The back has only been used in the studio by myself (the IEEE 1394 interface works fine) and the firmware is the last version released. Thge LCD is in good condition (unscratched).

The DCS 645 supports background image
processing that produces ERI JPEG or TIFF
RGB files which can be opened directly by many
applications and browsers.
ERI JPEG is a output of the KODAK
PROFESSIONAL Extended Range Imaging
Technology (ERI). This proprietary technology
offers an innovative image file format similar to a
JPEG, but with the dynamic range and color
gamut information of raw DCR camera files. An
ERI JPEG file is compatible with virtually all
imaging applications for opening, viewing and
In Lightroom, these files look fantastic, or you can use the free Kodak software, which is great (but slooow).
I am selling this back to fund an upgrade.
I live in the UK near London/Herts/Bedfordshire (SE).
I prefer pick up in person and can meet a cash buyer anywhere from London to Milton Keynes/Bedford, or across to South Wales or Worcester area.
I can post within the UK as a special delivery as well - I have a suitable strong box for that.
I would consider posting internationally. Paypal would therefore be the required payment method in that instance.
I can work out the shipping for a suitable buyer and the expense would be their responsibility (as would be taxes or duty (none within the EU)).
I am looking for £1800, or the nearest offer.
I am a long time L-landscape forum member for even longer than this present account shows and would like this fine back to help someone into MFDB on a budget.
