A jury found Marcus Denis Mayne guilty of robbing a Mowbray bank in September 2017.
Mayne walked into the ANZ and pulled a knife and claw hammer from a Woolworths bag.
The 31-year-old held the knife to a customer and demanded money from the teller.
Mayne said to the bank employee: "this is a hold-up. This is a stick-up. Put the money in the bag or she gets it".
The robbery was captured on the ANZ branch's CCTV, with eight videos from different angles of the bank were shown to the jury on the first day of the trial.
The footage showed Mayne wearing a black beanie, black jumper with white writing, tracksuit pants and aqua runners entering the bank and threatening customer Joanne-Lyn Young.
Ms Young told the court she thought the man was joking and then he held a knife to her.
"I just froze after I saw the blade," she said.
The teller put $2000 cash in the Woolworths bag and passed it to Mayne.
He also took the $250 cash Ms Young was depositing for rent.
The robbery took about 40 seconds.
After leaving the bank, Mayne offered two people in Woolworths car park $100 to take him to Ravenswood.
The pair declined, with both giving evidence they saw Mayne get into another man's car nearby.
The jury was told to compare CCTV footage from the bank to Mayne as he appeared in court, but also as he appeared in the police interview and in CCTV footage from St Vincent de Paul on the morning of the robbery.
Mayne visited the charity the morning of the robbery. He presented two forms of identification that stated he was Marcus Mayne and introduced himself as Marcus.
Mayne was given a drink, snacks, two Woolworths vouchers, a pair of gloves and tracksuit pants by two volunteers.
CCTV showed him wearing similar clothes to the robber, specifically his black jumper, gloves, tracksuit pants and aqua runners.
