Sellers on eBay.

  1. I have been giving some considerable thought to replicating my butterfly wing scale work with the D2H and the D70. I worked out what I needed and the bellows PB6 or PB5 was first up for consideration. So off I went on Sunday on to eBay and found both. One in the USA and one in the UK.
    The USA had a bid of $64 on it and 'Reserve Met' but specified that it was carriage to USA only. So I asked the seller if they would be willing to send it to the UK. No answer. Asked again. No Answer. So I left it. The item sold for under $70. Seller came back AFTER auction finished and said that the answer was NO!!
    So I got my own back by saying that this item sold for between $700 and $870 in the UK and if she had bothered to answer my email in the first instance she would have got a lot more. Ain't I the *******.
    Got the UK one for £165, ($300) Brand New. All I need now is an MC30, Linhof copying stand. A BR2A. A 24mm and a 55mm Micro Nikkor both with 52mm screw threads. A SC28. A small manual flash gun, etc etc. and a new credit card.

    Don't forget the ringlight, and a Bencher optical rail/copystand is at least as sturdy as a Linhof at one tenth the price. The screw-in Micros have always interested me - they look like microscope objectives.
  4. I ended up with a Kaiser Copying Stand so I am now set up for when I come back from France in July.
