Welcome to the IanB Foto website
Specialising in supply of Mamiya, Bronica and Fuji GX680 medium format film cameras, lenses and accessories.
Welcome to my updated website, launched April 2021. You will find it much easier to use than the old site if you are looking for something to buy. Any existing users will need to re-register, sorry about that but it was unavoidable. 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. There is a minor issue with the checkout at the moment that means it can be less easy to checkout automatically, but this is being worked on and will be corrected shortly.
Everything else is pretty much as it was – 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.
No new items added today, sorry – simply too much else going on. Next update will be Thursday 1 December 2022. Plenty of very nice Mamiya items will be added then in time for Christmas. 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 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

Stop Press : 1 November 2022
No new listings today, 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. Lots more new listings planned for 1 December – a big update just before Christmas – working on it now. Many more Mamiya, Bronica and Fuji GX680 items (50+ GX680 now listed) will added over the next few weeks. I am aiming to add a bunch of new listings around the 1st and 15th/16th of each month, so keep watching. Two major additions planned monthly. 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 on 1 December, plus plenty of new Sale items coming in the run up to Christmas (hopefully on 1 December as well) – check them out. Loads of nice stuff coming up! If you want something but can’t see it, just ask. No new information sheets / manuals / brochures added today, sorry, but more currently being prepared for adding on 1 December. 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 100+ 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.
