A Bunch of Camera Equipment For Sale

Posted on 07 October 2010 by Brian Auer

[UPDATE 10/24/2010] I was just informed that everything has been sold!

I don’t usually do this sort of thing, but I couldn’t help it in this case. Ken and Pat Ilott from the UK emailed me about a huge lot of film equipment they’re getting rid of. Here’s part of the email:

Hi, my husband has some amazing film photography equipment he wishes to sell off as he is now retired and is finding time for other hobbies. Anyone interested?

Although I can point out a few items that I’m drooling over, I’m just not in the market for new equipment this year. So I thought I would pass this along to all of you in case you have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in your pocket. This is really good stuff and definitely worth the asking price (start searching the Internet… ’nuff said).

They’re looking for somebody local that can pick it up so they don’t have to ship it, but you can always ask about paying for the shipping if you don’t live in the UK. If you’re interested or have questions, you can contact them at pat_ilott@hotmail.com.

    I’d love that Contax gear… but I have too much stuff already!

    Well you’ll never believe this, but I contacted Pat via email, and they live only a few minutes from me here in Cheltenham! Fancy that, I receive an email from the USA telling me about some Contax gear, and it is right on my doorstep!

    Anyway I got the Contax gear, I wanted that Macro, and the Distagon. The rest I’ll try to sell, as I already have too much

    Dude! That’s awesome! BTW, I got an email from them and they said that the only thing left is the LF stuff. I knew this gear wouldn’t last too long at that price.

    Thanks Brian. Got the MF gear, its in really fabulous condition, having great fun running through a couple of rolls. Those cameras were really well built and the lenses are outstanding.
