Movong house shortly so the jungle that is the loft has had to be tackled and I found some old relics!!

Unfortunately, they won't be coming with us so the below list of items is open to anyone that wants them - a lot of people have been good to me on here so this goes a little way to paying some of that back.

Praktica PL Nova 1 - Meyer optik 50mm/F2.8
Praktica MTL5 - Pentacon 50mm/1.8
Pentax ME Super - Pentax-M 50mm/1.7
Carl Zeiss MC Flektogon 35mm/F2.4
Carl Zeiss 135mm/F3.5
Beroflex Auto 200mm/F3.5
Plusmeter 120cdS lightmeter
Three C's Cds Exposure meter Model 2
2x national flashguns
1 Sirius flashgun
1 Miranda flashgun
A few accessories

NONE of this has been used in nearly 10 years so I have no idea if any of it works. There's a couple of bags too.

If anyone can make use of it, and can collect, let me know. i live near Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

I'm happy to give it away but if anyone wants to make a small donation, that would be appreciated (but not expected).

Thanks,
Scott

ETA: If more than 1 person is interested I'll draw the winner tonight.

Thank you.

Well, I have no intention of using them again, and I still have the memories of using them as a nipper.

I've inherited a Leica, which I will be using at some point.

Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think they're worth much - my generosity will be retracted if they are biggrin

I'd happily cover the postage and make a donation to a charity of your choice if you'd be willing to post the flashguns.

A bit more info, for you sir:

Miranda 500-CD Multi-dedicated
Sirius AR14
National PE-201C
National PE-243. This one comes with some kind of sync'ing cable and a 240V power supply.

Had a quick look and none of them have any battery bleed in them. I'll dig out some batteries a bit later and I'll let you know if they test fire.

Ideally, being the lazy sort I am, I'd like it all to go in one go. But I appreciate your donation generosity so I'll find out how much postage will be. Mail me your City/postcode first and I'll price it up.

Thanks,
S

I wouldn't like to say. They are ols school - 20 odd years old.

I was put off trying them on my digital cameras (350D and 60D) in case they fried any circuitry. I wouldn't risk it, personally.

I've sent you a PM with town and postcode. As per that, I'd happily have all the kit you've listed if you'd be willing to post.

I'll get the OH to get a quote tomorrow or Tuesday - will give me time to get some batteries and give 'em a test ( if they have the test button!). You also have mail.
