2 x Contax 645 Bodies one with Motordrive. 40mm, 80mm, 120 mm lens. 2 x Film back + 2 extra film insert cassettes. 1 xPhase One Contax fit P40+ back (85K actuations). 1 Prism (damage to front but working).
1 Waist lever finder (worn on top). 1 Flight Case with cut foam. All original boxes and lens bags included. I bought this from new in 2000 and used until 2004 when Hasselblad nicely gave me an H Kit.. It then sat in its case until 2019 when I got it out again mainly to see what was in the case!
I can send you the receipt. The auto focus on this body slides around and will not settle but all else is good. I always used manual focus anyway. An assistant dropped the prism (idiot) hence the crack but that still works fine. The waist level finder has a worn patch on the top but that's from being rubbed in a Billingham bag once.
I bought the Phase one P40 back in 2020 it has 85000 actuations and the chip is perfect. I used once only on a shoot last year, we shot at 800ASA with HMI's and results are brilliant.. I can send you some Raws if you are geek enough and want to look at them. The camera mostly lives in Shoreditch but the boxes are kept elsewhere. When there was only film to shoot (which I did for 2 decades) means that shooting on film holds no special magic for me so I thought I should sell it to someone who would appreciate it..
It is the best camera I ever used, the freedom of a 35mm with the quality of a medium format. The Carl Zeiss lenses are a joy, Sharp as as a pin yet very forgiving... It definitely changed the way I worked. Writing this almost makes me not want to sell it but it seems a waste it being sat under my desk for another 16 years.
