    That's the one that you screw into the back door of a U-Haul truck with an 8' X8' plate inside ready to be exposed. Back it up to Big Bend and Voila.

    Now wait until some clown in Asia "phishes" this listing and posts an "identical" one with a BIN of $1000! :D

    Hey Jimmy!

    I don’t think that U-Haul going to like that much when you drill a hole on the back of their truck! I mean it’s not gonna be a little un-noticeable hole is it? Otherwise it’s gonna be an expensive business! Buy the lens buy the truck and than whom the hell gonna deliver film to it? I would certainly secure that film supply before I invest on the rest! But, you could be the subject for the Guinness book of records! And hey, that’s something isn’t it?

    Wet plate. You'd have all your chems ready when the door gets shut. Pour, tilt, expose, process, done. Make sure there's some oxygen in the 'self contained breathing apparatus. What d'ya think Frankie?

    You know you are right about this ”clown” thing! Just looked this!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Linhof-Technika...2QQihZ015QQcategoryZ30076QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    I have seen this sold just a couple months ago here in Europe and just looked that! It will back again but to America! For a much higher price of course!

    I wonder who the hell going to use that 70 “ Goerz over there! I don’t think that “shenhoahoop” or what ever the name is of that a camera can hold that lens! Of course they are going to sell it back! But you know who the bigger clown is! Who buys it back!:D


    Part two!

    What’s wrong with this picture??

    Now, this guy (a seller) comes up from nothing and begins to sell ULF film holders which are in my opinion not very common in Asia!! :confused: Or? Tell me if I’m wrong won't you?!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/12-x20-plastic-...2QQihZ018QQcategoryZ15248QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Now, he’s got 2 very nice positive feedbacks! If you go in and check his profile than you will see that he have already sold two ULF holders which he probobly not even know what is it or what it's for but neverless got nice positive feedback for! Of course this means that the buyer had already received those holders well and safe! Right?

    But if you go and check the buyer’s feedback you will not find anything there from this nice 2 positive feedback seller!

    How the hell could it be? Did he forget? Or the buyer doesn’t care? no it's just that they are regitered all over the place and rip you off!

    I tell you man this guys this is a Chin mafia! The question is when you gonna learn? At least we know this here in Europe we learned how things are but you guys still being ripped off!

    Now they call me a racist and things like this, but I tell you some! This fotoman guy and that Buz guy with his Shanghai film! They can all go and take a walk! I know one thing no more Chin thing in my house! Just remember what Bush said the other day, it’s enough polyester here already! :D

    Part 3

    One more important thing is this! If you find something which wasn’t made in Asia and up for sale from over there, than it’s almost certainly item they have brought here in Europe or somewhere else cheap and therefore a large profit on. Now if you just let it be to buy it than it will stop as they can’t get away with it! The end of the day it’s you who decide the more you by back the more items come up for sale and of course your prices going to be higher and higher! To speed up things nowadays one guy buys and another one selling it right away.

    I’m off from this thread from now on!
