    I have a Kodak Retina Close Range and View Finder Kit (Model B) with original box in pristine condition. The instructions have some writing on the cover.

    $120 OBO

    The E. Leitz Wetzlar ball head tripod mount is in great shape. Except for a small scratch it looks brand new.

    $60

    I also have a Kiev 88 WLF that will fit on a Hasselblad 500c/cm but the magnifier is not compatible with the hassy screens as far as I know. It's in like-new condition.

    $12

    Shipping $5 flat rate for first class mail.

    PM me with any questions. Thanks.

    To those who don't know... (No connection to seller)... This particular ball head tripod mount is the best, light weight ballhead I know of.

    I have tried several and this is the only one I would endorse. Someone who needs one, will get a good deal here.

    What makes it special is its ability to lock firmly with moderate torque on the locking knob. Most other ballheads require more torque and are still less capable of holding still.

    Thanks, Bill. Yeah, it's pretty nice, if I didn't need the money I'd definitely keep it.

    That screw fitting on the Leitz ballhead looks pretty big....is it 3/8 in?

    It fits my bronica SQA. So I think so.

    I can attest to what Bill says about the ball head. I have one that is black, and is still perfect, except for one thing - the chrome plate on the bottom (that has the female thread for mounting to a tripod) has play in it, creating a slight wobble when all is tight. Does anyone know where or how to fix this? I see no access or set devices.

    I have no idea. Mine is in perfect condition, it almost seems like a solid piece.

    p.s. You should expect it to be standard tripod thread 1/4 - 20 both top and bottom.

    Yes, re the thread size - Leitz made a 3/8 version, IIRC, last time I saw one was the 60's and it was substantially larger and taller.
