    Gee Ron,
    I have a Classic, RARE version of a Velbon geared two axis rail used by Ansel Adams AND Edward Weston, I think it's the one Weston used when he made pepper # 30. Or not.
    I do have a rail though. I'm holding it for ransom.

    Hi John,

    Would that be a Kings ransom ?
    Or just your average APUG'ers ransom ?

    Ron, I have a New Old Stock Minolta Bellows Focusing Rail. I never used it and from memory, thought it was a Nova-flex and in checking, its a Minolta. The Nova-flex item, also NOS, is some kind of flash holder to use for close up bellows.

    Is this is what your looking for?
