Camera Sale: Leica M4-P



More awesome sauce coming your way. Today's Third World Nerd camera sale is an absolute classic: a Leica M4-P.

Yes, this is, of course, a film camera. I should say it is THE film camera. Because if you want to dabble in the dark arts of film, this is the camera to get.

The Details:
Leica M4-P (pictured above). Body only.
Near mint condition.

Price: 
US$900

Shipping:
Right now, the camera is in the US. If you're from there, we should be able to arrange for shipping. For readers based in the Philippines, the camera will be here in April. There are of course ways to ship here, but the safest/best option is handcarrying the cameras to the Philippines. For more info about this camera, read the section below. 

Payment:
Meetup. Pay in cash.

The story behind the Third World Nerd camera sale:
Camera addicts attract camera pushers like, well, drug addicts and drug pushers. So last year when I was looking to buy a new camera (or a great used camera), I got in touch with my uncle in the States who is a camera enthusiast and photographer. He is also quite the collector. I figured it would be good to buy from him because he shoots with a Leica M9 and owns a lot of cameras, so his time with each is spread pretty thin, meaning his cameras don't get that much use. That's good for buyers! At the same time, he's a big camera nut, so he takes care of his gear.

For a while, I was on the verge of buying one of two Leica M8's that he had, but that purchase would have left me with no money to buy lenses so I stuck with the micro four thirds system instead. Maybe one day.

Anyway, Uncle Camera Pusher will be landing in the Philippines this April. And he's selling a few cameras from his collection. I'm helping him out. Send me a message if you're interested!

UPDATE: SOLD!
