    The giant tripod base is becuse it's the bottom half of a Cirkut Camera tripod. Looks like it's modified ie. gear removed etc so unuseable for a cirkut. I think this seller walks into Samy's Camera down on Fairfax in LA then doubles whatever price they have. And their prices are untenable. His are just insane. At Ebay's latest prices he's paying a bunch for our entertainment.

    Sparky I think you are right, a good machinist could do it and then have the bellows made. But, If you hire to have it done it ain't going to be cheap...a 7x17 Canham is $6000.00 without the holders (IMHO a much more usable and and desirable camera design) So I don t know what Mr. Canham would charge to make a 14 x 17?

    $6600 - it's on his new price list.

    "We will assist you with the Customs Declaration Form to address your individual needs.Please inquire with your special requests.We will make this a pleasant shopping experience." This couldn't be more blatant. Makes me wonder if he will be as honest with the buyer.

    Hi John,

    What's the camera "Worth" ? A Canham at 6600 is a better choice IMHO.

    The camera price does appear high, but I am not that knowledgeable. Certainly the the new Canham would be a better choice, but as has been mentioned, this camera comes with the tripod and the holders. If you didn't own a big Ries or something equivalent or even a Gitzo Carbon Fiber like the 1548 there would also be another big outlay for the tripod.

    If you think that this is goofy, take a gander at the ULF (12X16) Durst enlargers up on Ebay now. Jensen looks to be cleaning out the warehouse because you have your choice of three.

    Darn! Foiled again ! 12 x 16 is just a bit shy for a 14 x 17 neg.

    I bet that with enough money, Jensen will build about anything that you want. Imagine how large you go blow up a 14X17 neg....

    That would put you up in the Clyde Butcher catagory. You could be the Ansel of Sin City. Hell of a deal.

    I predict fame and fortune. Go for it...
