Hed owned it from new and Ill be honest Im guessing hes maybe run a few packs of film through it since new. So its been in unused safe storage for decades. All works nicely, Ive checked the shutter, rangefinder etc and all seems good. Its got the old battery in it which needs replacing.
I havent put any film through it and never used it myself but the camera is in fantastic condition as you can see from the photos. Theres no reason why its not in full working condition. Zeiss rangefinder and an amazing lens. The 190 is the rarer to find and more desirable version of the 185 and 195 land cameras. Made for the European market in the 70s there was only approx 8000 made.You can find more info on the spec etc here. I used to be a lot more Polaroid and film camera savvy but Im a bit out of the loop now so apologies for not giving you a more detailed technical spec.
Ive had the camera in storage for about 8 years and as much as I love it as an amazing piece of equipment I know Im never going to use it. Its such a nice camera it deserves to be used by someone who loves these cameras and appreciates how great they are. The BIN price is based on some research and speaking to a collector who buys and sells Polaroid cameras. Youre welcome to collect from me in south London too. If you wanted any more detail specific images Im happy to supply, just ask.
