    Who's gonna put this man out of misery?

    This has been on sale for weeks on the Dutch auction site: A Cambo 8x10 with accessories and pola processor. Look here.

    And not one bid yet! Is there something wrong with this camera or the asking price, or is 8x10 just not a popular format in Holland? Tell me if you know something I don't.

    I dont understand much of it, but it seems he is selling an 8x10 cambo, a 305 G claron, a reducing back and some film holders for 1,150 euro, this is way overpriced, unless of course importing the items adds a lot to the price, I dont know.

    It's a fair price but it's not outrageously low.

    8x10" Sinar P's have been going for around $1000-1200 US lately on eBay. I paid $150 for my Polaroid setup processor and one holder (and since have bought two more holders for about $50 each). There are a few other goodies in there, like the reducing back and 4x5" Polaroid holder, and the 305mm G-claron, so it's a pretty good deal, but not off the scale.

    It includes a pola processor for 8x10 Polaroids. Of course it's overpriced, but on the glorious Marktplaats they have the curious bidding system where you can place bids below the starting price. So it's more of a barter than a bidding that goes on. Anyhow, most of the times people bid what they think is reasonable, but even that has not been done. Hence my surprise.

    Once again I dont speak Hollandaise but I thought the processor was being sold separately and was not included in the camera auction.

    It looks to me like 1150 for everything together and then broken down to 850 for the camera and lens, 100 for a "tandheugel statiefkop" and 350 for the polaroid stuff if you want to buy them seperately.

    I possibly could use a tandheugel statiefkop if only I knew what it was. Even babelfish came up empty.

    Extrapolating from German, I'd guess that a tandheugel statiefkop is a ballhead of sorts.

    statiefkop denotes any kind of tripod head
    tandheugel is a word as foreign to most Dutch native speakers as it is to you lot. It's not even in my DU-EN dictionary. The components are:

    tand = tooth + heugel = pinion, so putting 2 and 2 together it's probably some kind of tripod head with finely meshed? pinions?

    And yes, it's 1150 for all of this lot together. Paul had the correct interpretation. See, Hollandaise is not so hard to understand, especially if it involves cameras. I find Italianaise a lot easier when reading about a camera-related issue than when it concerns anything else, say politics.
