    Studio 2000 is in liquidation, and all their gear is going under the hammer on Wednesday June 5 2013, through Mason Gray Strange

    https://www.mgs.net.au/auction/viewauction.html?a=7343

    Loads of Hasselblad gear, Bowens lighting, desks etc up for auction - someone on APUG might just grab themselves a bargain.:cool:

    **You can bid online if you can't get there on the day.

    Oh, what a shame - the dodgiest of dodgy studios in Adelaide has gone bust....I suppose you get what is coming to you and Karma is a bitch.

    Thanks for the heads up Nanette.

    Yep, karma's just around the corner, waiting to bite you on the a***. Not a Blad fan myself, but the Bowens gear - a nice little group there, along with a couple of Lowepro bags (Lot #340).

    Sorry if you have any connection with them Nanette. I have known a few people who have had shoots done there and I also know someone who worked for them, hence my comment.

    I noticed that, but they expect you to pick it up don't they?

    Hoffy, no connections other than friends who were worked like dogs upon their completion of TAFE there - they speak so *very* highly of them to. . . . .:whistling: (I know *exactly* where you are coming from.:cool:)

    David, not too sure - maybe they'd be happy to ship, if you're happy to pay for it? Or perhaps an ADL based APUGer could ship if you won?

    What the hell were they doing with all that furniture? And hundreds of PCs?

    I know they had a call centre (that's where a work colleges girl friend used to work).

    Haha - I gather it was either them Or Roxy Studios, right, with the dude who used to shoot weddings in a white suit and white trainers?

    As for the auction - there is plenty of tempting stuff, but in reality, it would need to go for rock bottom prices for me to be interested in it.

    So, it looks like their shitty online bidding applet is blocked from my work. Anyone want to put a $200 bid on a couple of Bowens flashes for me? All y'all know me well enough (I hope) to know I'm not a flake :wink:


    Edit: they accept emailed proxy bids. So I'll do that.

    Do you have a Javascript blocker on your browser?
    or outdated Java?

    No, it's a firewall issue. Their Java applet wants to open a private TCP connection which is not permitted.

    Anyway, please no one bid on 272 or 306. Pick different flashes if it's flashes you want. Hoffy: email the dude (James) your bids by 9am and they will be included.

    Note the presence of a pair of Nikon 8000s!

    Did you end up buying anything? I tried to look as well while at work and had the same issues with the Java plug in. I'd be curious to see how much some of this gear went for.

    I looked at the interbid website (fortunately) just as 306 was auctioned. It showed $300 (more than my bid) but I don't know what the closing price was. All items before that were listed as "Gone" so I don't know closing prices in general. I'm pretty sure I didn't win 272 either as I haven't heard from MGS.

    That's probably a good enough price for the Blad 503 kit - not a bargain, but OK, I suppose.
