    Hello,
    I was just given two sets of studio lights, which are very nice. I haven't yet tested them out or cleaned them up, but I thought I would post up here and just see if anyone was interested in trading something for them. Not really sure what I'm looking for, but I'm open to offers.
    Off the top of my head, I'd like:
    -Bronica s2(a) accessories, lenses, etc.
    -Nikon F lenses/accessories for f2
    -Jobo LF drum
    -6x4.5 slr (etrs, mamiya, pentax)
    -panoramic camera (6x12)
    -LF lenses (4x5)
    Will trade for any of the above, as long as I feel like I would use it and its in good enough condition. Will consider other trades too, for anything cool. I can tell you the exact models and everything when I open the boxes up and check em out. Please let me know if you're interested.
    Thanks,
    Austin

    why dont you tell us more about the lights, and while you're at it, include some pix of them. Oh ya, make sure they function properly. That way nobody feels like they are getting a pig in a poke.

    Alright well I have decided to hang on to one of the sets, and let the other set go. The set I am willing to let go are studiotechnik hesnel strobes. They both function perfectly, have modeling lights, and strobe lights. I will include a ton of accessories. I am also willing to sell the set.

    What brand are they? Alien Bee? Broncolor? Prophoto? Norman? What model, are they monolights or pack systems? Any modifiers?

    They are studio technik. I believe they are monolights because they don't plug into a box that plugs into the wall, but rather straight into the wall. Not sure what you mean by modifiers...

    hensels are nice ...

    how many watt seconds of light at full power do they have ?
    did the previous owner "formed the capacitors" ( use them weekly to make sure they stayed good )

    modifiers = honeycomb grids, barn doors, snoots / spotlight cone, clamp to hold gobos ( cut outs to make shadows )
    soft /soff boxes / ( + spin rings to attach them )

    do you have bogen stands or booms or arms ?

    can you post some snapshots of the set so we can get an idea what you are selling ??

    thanks !
