    The final price will no doubt be in the typical range. My guess would be about $2,000.

    The snipers are always watching . . .

    The cats and snipers are in cahoots. Not that I don't buy things there, but the true bargains are few and far between. Mis-listed and misspelled listings are sometimes the exception, but people have even learned to search for those.

    You're kidding. ULF isn't cheap. And a project camera is a cheap way to buy an expensive camera. (Don't ask me how I know!) Have you priced film holders and film? Do you have a lens which will cover 12x20 without the extension rail (which appears to be missing...)? The bellows might or might not be usable with care, etc. Bigger trays, bigger sink, more chemistry... It all adds up. I'm not trying to be a prophet of doom. I succumbed to the temptress of ULF myself. Don't turn back, but don't be guiled into thinking there's a free lunch.

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.
