Came across this camera that was stored in a closet for,at least,45 years.from the looks of it,no film was ever run through the camera.I took it out of the bubble plastic wrap and was amazed at the New condition.also the 80mm.lens was the same way.I am a Hasselblad guy and Nikon. Just appreciate the quality and build.Would like to sell for a good price.any idea what this would be worth?the box is musty,as was the home it came out of.did not see any fungus,but I would think it would have to be professionally cleaned.the shutter sounded like butter.this must have been well made.

I had one of those with all three lenses that I bought in the early 70s. Loved it when I had a darkroom. Now it would be a nostalgic mantel piece.

A few months ago I searched for the C330 and found they are in demand again due to renewed interest in film. When new, it was (arguably) capable of Hasselblad like results for a fraction of the price.

I also had a Mamiya C330 with several lenses. It was a great professional camera. The images bring back memories. I would also like to know what it is worth in such a new condition.

I have one, used it in my work. With 55, 65, 80, 135, and 180mm lenses. Tended to upstage my Rollieflex with fixed 80mm lens. Thinks..."Will I ever use it again"?

You might check eBay to see what they sell for. If you do want to sell it, I would be interested. I still have an older version, a C3, which is a lot heavier than the C330, and I have the 65, 105, and 180mm lenses. Although not quite Hasselblad quality, it was and is a good picture taker.

Have you noticed that the post headline says "Makita" and not "Mamiya"?

As nobody has mentioned it, I suggest you check out http://www.KEH.com - they are a well established and respected buyer and seller of camera gear and you can probably find the C330 listed on their website to see what one in "like new" condition sells for.
