Welcome to the IanB Foto website
Specialising in supply of Mamiya, Bronica and Fuji GX680 medium format film cameras, lenses and accessories.
The Royal Mail international deliveries computer system has been hit with a serious Ransomware attack (12 January). As a result, international deliveries are now taking 1-2 days longer than before – but it is all working again. Obviously, this is something completely out of my control. I cannot send by alternative courier (such as FedEx, DHL, etc) as the cost is typically around 2x-3x the Royal Mail cost. So I am sorry about (slightly) delayed deliveries. UK deliveries are not affected.
Welcome to my website, specially for the sale of Mamiya, Bronica and Fuji camera and accessories, plus all of the information needed for these systems for completely free download. You can now (usually) check out without waiting for an invoice; you can use PayPal (now linked into the site) or, if you have a UK bank account, choose bank transfer and get the same 4% discount as before. For multiple purchases from outside the UK please feel free to “Request Quote” to get the lowest postage pricing.
AT LAST! Finally I have a new Checkout system up and running – much easier to use and (hopefully) avoiding the need for you to ask for an invoice. However, you can still “Request an invoice” if you want to. Launched 18 February. However, there is a minor problem. It is currently possible to purchase an item and go to checkout without first logging in. If you do this you will be left with no delivery options and cannot even ask for an invoice – so make sure you log in (or Register if you are a new customer) BEFORE trying to make a purchase. This problem will be fixed shortly. IF YOU REQUEST AN INVOICE PLEASE WAIT TO RECEIVE IT BEFORE PAYING!
Everything else is pretty much as it was in my old website (for those with long memories!) – all the Downloads are still there, and still completely free. If you want to know more, all you need to know is in the FAQ/Help page.
Automated postage calculation now active! Your invoice and postage charges for your order will be calculated automatically – just look at your basket to see the postage charge. The intention is to charge for postage at cost, not to make a profit out of postage. If the charge seems too high then just ask for an invoice. You can checkout with PayPal, or (if you have a UK bank account) make payment by bank transfer. Any questions, please just ask.
Last updated 1 March 2023 with 40+ new items, including some real rarities. Just go to For Sale and then Show only new items to see that latest listings. Apologies – Royal Mail postage prices increased from 4 April 2022 and these increases are now being charged in this website. The biggest increases are on international deliveries over 250g – sorry!
VAT – Unfortunately with Brexit being a reality, it looks like VAT is being charged on sales to the EU. It seems that smaller, low value items (caps, etc) are not being charged VAT, but expect to pay 20% import duty on more expensive items. The whole situation is still unclear, so please mail me with any questions.
Any questions / comments, please just drop me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Finally my new Checkout is up and running as of 18 February – hopefully resolving all of the problems that have existed recently. It looks a little different but works exactly the same underneath. If you find any problems – like being unable to select a postage method – please contact me as I cannot find the fault. Any questions / comments, please just ask. Any problems, please just send me a mail.
40+ new listings in added 1 March; next update 1 April. No February listings due to holidays – sorry. Well over 500 live listings at the time of writing. Just click on “Show Only New Items” at the top left of the Shop page to see the new listings. Many more Mamiya, Bronica and Fuji GX680 items (50+ GX680 now listed) will added over the next few weeks. Currently only one major addition planned monthly on the 1st of the month. Next major new listing on 1 April – currently in preparation. If you want something but can’t see it, just ask. Loads of camera cases and bags, including Lowepro and Peli, added over the past few days on eBay – just see the listings for 5711ianb.
Plenty more new listings in preparation for listing hopefully on 1 April. Loads of nice stuff coming up! If you want something but can’t see it, just ask. New information sheets / manuals / brochures added today, and more currently being prepared for adding later this week – a pile of stuff here scanned and waiting to be turned into PDFs. Now also listing a selection of original brochures and instruction manuals in case you want a printed copy – but of course these are all also available for free as PDFs in the Downloads section.
Please check to see if the item you are looking for is now listed – and just ask if you can’t see what you want. Over 1000 more Mamiya (OK – plenty of them are small items like caps, but most are more important items) and more Bronica items hidden away in my lockup and waiting to be listed – I cannot list it all at once! If you want something there is a high chance I have got it – so just ask. If you do not ask you do not get!
Also available – Fuji GX680 lenses, backs and accessories; a lot of new listings made recently and lots more GX680 just arrived and not yet listed – just ask. Many items now listed on eBay, but many more in stock – ask if you cannot see what you want.
Now available – GX680 I/II backs with new memory storage batteries fitted – good to go for many many years. New batteries can also be fitted to your existing (dead) back. Ask if interested.
