    No problem - I didn't see it myself until just the other day, figured I'd post the link since others might be in the same boat.

    Boy what a shame to see a #16 cirkut tripod being used like this.
    Having had one made for my camera, and knowing the rarity of it, it's upsetting to see it used this way.

    but does that include a handfull of film holders ?

    Well there you go....if you are in the market and set on that format, it is not that easy of a decision....what one hopes is that the camera is sound....nothing more frustrating than to pay 8 bucks or so for film, load it, work up a shot and get home and find out all is ruined because of poor registration, light leaks or termites.....I have a hundred year old 5 x 7 that works really well...if one is going to really dedicate a lot of time and years to the format, the new one could turn out to be the best investment...lighter weight, easily repaired etc...on movements, the one I use most is front rise..to see over the fence or cut out the street below...if one was in the market for the format, and 4500 was too much, what would one be willing to pay...?

    Interest in the format is growing! there is a serious photographer on the east coast-just acquired an Empire 14 x 17 and another major voice in photography in the west, yea even a sage, just acquired a Wisner 14 x 17, :o and I learned on this thread that Canham has added the 14 x 17 to his catalog (and also a new 20 x 24 special order)...

    I've bought a couple of items from this guy. He tends to be overpriced and I would read his descriptions very conservatively, but sometimes things will sit unsold for a year, and he'll drop the price to something reasonable if not cheap, and if it's a good item, it may be worth it.

    Would be nice for my 30x40cm camera, but at a price that's ridiculously higher than the camera.

    Nah - I think I'd rather sell the camera!

    Have you looked at his other items for sale? Everything seems to be around $1000 - $2500. Even things I would expect to pay about £200 ($380) for.

    Another beauty for sale. Is there an increasing demand for ULFs or a glut on market?
