A long-awaited updated list of [mostly] photography stuff for sale. Bowens system lighting accessories, Nikon accessories, Norman battery-powered lighting, bi-colour mixable battery-powerable LED light panel, Hasselblad V-system accessories, a Horseman LE 4x5 large format camera system, large format lenses in COPAL shutters and on Sinar DB mounts and lots of other cool things. The list summarizes the sale lots including those accompanied by pictures. Let's start with items we have photos for. All product photos shot by Sébastien Guillier-Sahuqué.
100foot spools of expired, cold stored, Kodak Edupe duplication
slide film. EI 16, weird (fun?) colour casts. Enough for about 18 rolls
of 36exp. - $18ea.
35mm bulk film loader. Brand new. $12 each.
Nikon MB-D10 Multi-Power Battery Grip for the D300/D300s/D700 bodies.
Allows you to unlock the higher frame rates of these cameras and use AA
batteries if desired. Included in the package is the Nikon BL-3 which
allows you to use Nikon EN-EL4/EN-EL4a batteries which were spec'ed for
the Nikon D2h/D2x/D3/D3x. Great if you need a grip and are already
shooting a D2X or D3X and have a D300 or D700 as a backup body -
standardize on one type of battery and charger! Vistek wants about $340
for the grip and $50 for the battery adapter plug. $250 total for the
Schneider Symmar-S 240mm F/5.6 in Sinar DB mount. Optically flawless. Scuffs on DB mount and on lens board. - $225
Schneider Super-Angulon 75mm F/5.6. Optically flawless. Scuffs on DB mount and on lens board. - $450 $375
Schneider Symmar-S 180mm F/5.6. Optically flawless. Scuffs on DB mount and on lens board. - $225
Schneider Symmar-S 210mm F/5.6. Optically flawless. Scuffs on DB mount and on lens board. - $225. Or $950 $750 for all four Sinar DB lenses.

Polaroid 4x5 film! Was refrigerated and not frozen. No expiration dates but the Pro 100
Polapan Pro 100 x 10sheets - $2/sheet
Polacolor Type 59 x 6sheets - $3/sheet
Polapan Type 52 x 10sheets - $3/sheet
Polacolor Pro 100 x 3sheets - $2/sheet
150mm F/5.6 Calumet Caltar S-II/Schneider Symmar-S multicoated lens in a COPAL #0 shutter. Glass is flawless and the shutter seems to fire all speeds accurately. Lens exhibits a bit of "Schneideritis" in the cement that adheres the elements to the lens barrels that should not affect image quality. $295.
Schneider Super-Angulon XL 72mm F/5.6. This lens covers 5x7 with a bit of movement or 4x5 with lots of movement. It's the holy grail of 4x5 interior architectural photography and I have one of these in my 4x5 system bag already. Glass in flawless condition. Shutter speeds sound accurate. There's a bit of wear on the finish of the exterior of the lens barrels that will not affect image making in any way. $1150.
Hasselblad Proshade with B50 adapter for Hasselblad V-system lenses. I believe the B60 bayonet is on the 80mm F/2.8 Zeiss Planar. This variable-length hood can be expanded or contracted to work effectively with a wide range of lens focal lengths. $99 and includes original box and documentation.
Metered 30-ish degree prism finder for Hasselblad V-system (500-series cameras). I think it's made by a Ukrainian camera company so it's NOT Hasselblad-branded. It's optically flawless and nice to use. The adhesives used to hold the leatherette to the prism have started coming apart. $35.
Hasselblad 90degree prism finder for V-system/500 series camera bodies. This one is Hasselblad-branded and marked "MADE IN GERMANY WEST" in the chrome mating surface. The exterior is in beautiful condition only with minor marks in the paint and the glass is flawless. $150.
Sekonic L-758dr incident/spot/flash meter with Pocketwizard triggering module. I have one of these meters myself and use it on most of my shoots. The integrated spot meter shows meter readings inside the spot meter readings inside the viewfinder without having to remove your eye from it and there is dioptric adjustability. Spot metering capability with strobes has allowed me to precisely confine a scene's exposure latitude to that of my digital cameras. I have the Sekonic exposure latitude test chart. If you can come to my studio with your cameras we can profile your cameras and upload the information into the L-758 so that you can use it to trigger exposure latitude warnings when metering. The meter is functionally flawless but has wear marks from normal use. $390.
Contax TLA 30 flash. Gives TTL flash metering capability on most Contax/Yashica mount SLRs and G system rangefinders though it'll be a bit ugly and cumbersome on a champagne-coloured G1 or G2. It'll come with a pocket softbox attachment for which velcro has already been applied. It can also be used as a manual off camera flash with full, half, and quarter power settings. $35.
Norman-compatible speedring for softboxes. The connector was designed for pre-IL2500 heads but can be adapted to the IL2500 with a nylon insert manufactured by Norman which I can include for an additional $5. $35 for the speedring.
Polaroid 545 back. Looks rough and it works! I believe it can be used with Kodak Quickload and Fuji Readyload film as well. $10.
Bowens QuadX remote control. Allows for control of all pack functions from over twenty feet. I no longer see this remote on Bowens' website or on Calumet's website so it may be discontinued. Really handy in large studios or with multiple packs or for lazy photographers. Accepts 9V alkaline battery. $95.
4x5 plastic film holders. While these are a generation or two old and don't feature the push-button dark slide locking of the newest holders I prefer the reliability and compactness of these holders. $12ea. If you aren't picking these up/need them shipped please purchase at least five at a time.
Hi, Gary. The prism is still here. The meter works and it even seems like the battery is still alive. However, I don't have a V-system body to test it on right now. If it's inaccurate it should just require a battery replacement. Small penlight battery of some kind. I'll send you an e-mail to follow up.
