Some interesting pieces, but it looks like a very random collection from someone with no particular plan for collecting.

I agree with Barry- rather random. I wonder what impact will that have on the value of the good items - will the dreck suppress the value of the good items, or will it drive the value up because people will get antsy?

There's a Bessa II 6x9 with the original filters and what appears to be a Color-Skopar....I've been aching for that thing for years...

:p

like I would collect, I think...

otherwise you're right. But some interesting items I'd love to own!!

Unfortunately it seems he will sell it all in one go...

Kleinmeister ;

Let me easy your pain , I saw Skopar pictures and there was nothing to dream about. A Kiev 60 is cheap and does better , of course 66.

Fair enough, I just always wanted one for backpacking. I used Tessar based 6x9 folder and a 1kg tripod setup and could do 50+ milers. I can't complain though, the M7II lenses by far exceed my needs...

Klain-

there is a huge difference between the Bessa 6x9 and the Kiev 60 - about 5 lbs, 3 cm of film area, 30 years of age, and light-years difference in build quality. I'd take the Bessa any day.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on those big Novoflex lenses (especially the 400). With luck I could get the necessary adapter to fit it to my Canons

Gads, the selection goes on and on and on! I'd love to play with some of the old brass LF lenses.

I'll take the lot. How much is it and what size truck should I bring?

My father used to have a couple of the Compass cameras shown in the link for the sub-miniature cameras: http://www.kameramuseum.com/Kamerasamling/Sub-Miniature/sub%20mini.jpg

I wonder where they are now...

i thought the radio camera was interesting, i am sure the image would be a litlle fuzzie if you had the chili peppers cranked during the capture

also saw an Ansco "Memo". One of the earlier 35mm cameras made.
I happened upon two of the Memo's one still with a case and the take-up cartridges.
I still need to do a test, the lens in them is an Ilex Ansco Cinemat F:6.3.
i would imagine it would produce an interesting image

Makes me wonder who has the cash for this to purchase in one go. Or has the balls to do so to sell it off later in parts or single pieces.

not many...

But there's talks going around to convince them to sell in smaller parts..
