    Hello -
    My wife has told me that I have too many cameras. While I don't understand how this is possible, she believes it is, and who can argue with that?
    And so I have a Seitz Roundshot 90-5 for sale. The camera is in excellent + condition and is amazing to see in operation. It takes five inch roll film and has shutter speeds ranging from 1/250 sec to 128 seconds (per 1/4 inch of film past the slot). The lens is a 90mm grandagon specifically chosen for the camera by seitz, and all operations are controlled by an off-camera controller.
    The camera comes with the controller, cables, viewfinder, film holders, instruction book, tripod mount, and film winding system. I'll even include several rolls of 5 inch color negative film and 1000 feet of Kodak plus-x Aerocon film. That should hold you for quite a while.
    There were only 5 of these cameras made by Seitz in the mid 1990's. It's a collector's item that works a lot better than the typical cirkut camera, and provides an extremely sharp negative that can readily be contact printed. If interested, I'll be happy to send a copy of the instruction manual along, as well as some pictures of the camera itself. Just let me know.
    I'm looking for $9000 + shipping for the camera, but will also consider serious offers. The original cost of the camera with accessories was just north of $22,000....
    Best of all - Ed.

    Ed, have you tried selling on the rangefinder forum, or the large format photography forum?

    Just want to make sure that you're not only trying on APUG; some people say these forums do better with "high-ticket" items, and at the very least you'll increase your traffic.

    Best of luck,

    c.h.

    How's this for a late bump? The fellow who was interested wasn't able to convince his wife that it was necessary to his continued existence. I just don't understand it...

    I'm afraid that if I DID have the cash and bought it, my late wife would come back from the dead, demanding to know why I needed another camera. :tongue:

    Ah, but you really only need this camera. The rest are superfluous. E.
