    Ken, if you're patient you can probably get a better deal. I got a Noblex 150 for $900 on Ebay, but it took me a while.

    I agree with Paul. The basic medium format Noblex 150 is going for around $1000 or even less occasionally these days.

    I was once bought a condensor for a durst m800 from them, I was already aware of their bad reputation but they were the only ones selling them so I jumped for it, and at a high price too. Three months later the condensor still hadn't arrived. I had to call them to get my money back. I guess they just had a reputation to live up to. I too wonder how a company that practically only gets negative comments can stay in business. By the way has anybody seen their adds on ebay. It just screams "stay away".

    Back in the days when they were Cambridge Camera is bought fairly regularly from them. I do not recall any problems. My "secret" was to have the items sent COD. They shipped quickly because they wanted the money. My understanding years ago was that one of the reasons they stayed in business was because they were around the corner from the NYC diamond market and the goal was to get cash for transactions there-on. Whether this was true or not, I do not know. but that is what I heard.

    Were they in the Diamond District at some point? I remember visiting the shop long ago before moving to New York, I think on Broadway wasn't it? around 18th St.?, and then after B&H moved up to 34th St. in the 1990s they were in the old B&H space, which I think was on 17th St., if I remember correctly.

    Maybe you're thinking of 47th St. Photo, which was near the Diamond District. Professional Camera Repair was right in the middle of the Diamond District.

    Wall Street Camera closed a few years ago. I remember stopping in there during their last months and seeing a very attractive Focomat II englarger in the center of the shop, but I didn't have any room for it. Eli Kurland, formerly of Wall Street Camera, has his own shop currently in the venerable Brooks Bros. Building that houses the Leica Gallery.

    Yes, I recall Eli very well....Eli and his white dog I believe, correct?

    He is very active on that auction site I think.
