Know any reputable shops that stock h'blad, rollei, bronica, mamiya, etc online?

(All I know, ffordes, whose selection drastically changed over the new year, and mwclassic, whose selection is also small at the moment, they focus more on leicas)

Cheers,
Rob

I've never dealt with him since he left Pelling + Cross years ago but you could try Bob Rigby in Bollington,nr Macclesfield which is fairly local to Liverpool. Are Speedgraphic any use? they used to have a place by the docks.

Hi,

Before anyone goes near Nicholas camera in London, I STRONGLY advise you to read the thread below which I started with my own experience of visiting this so-called shop....

On the 7th March 2006 I sent the following email to Nicholas Cameras:

"Could you please let me know what your best price would be for the S/H Sigma 70-210EX in Pentax AF mount, that is listed on your website. Also your best price, including delivery, for the Tokina 80-200 2.8."


Three weeks later, having recieved no reply, I sent this:

"I see from your website that you still have the below items listed - if you let me know the prices of them, I might just buy one.

Your soonest response would be appreciated."



Yet still no reply.

Three years on, I've just looked at their website, and I see they're still listed. Something tells me they don't keep their stock listings up to date. I bet they're still in the AP advert too.

I'd give them a wide berth.

Sadly nicholas camera are the ones with the biggest selection =/

And yes dan, I don't think they do, seeing as on their homepage they have the sentence

"Stock last edited at 14:02 on Wednesday 21 June 2006 - 1436 items online."

Didn't notice that! Perhaps your first sentence should have said "biggest apparent selection".

MXV have a few different bodies, although no Hasselblads that I could see. How about a TLR, Mamiya for instance?

The Mamiya C330f is supposed to be very good with interchangeable lenses etc. Been quite tempted myself.

Cheers, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Hiya,

Nicholas advertise hundreds of items they do not have...that is why they try to sell unsuspecting 'buyers' other items. I would not go near them with a barge pole...especially bearing in mind the appalling storage of the items they do have.

If you want medium format gear try Peter Walnes, Jonathan Harris & Aperture.

cheers Steve.
