    Oh, my hand slipped on the mouse...

    Well it was frightfully cheap, but I will still be in the dog house...

    Calumet monorail with a Kodak 170mm, f6.3 lens, 3 holders and a light meter for $90.

    You infected me with your disease.

    I swear the dog just said "deardorf"...

    Kino,

    At least, YOU got away cheap!

    When I first started into LF photography I also made my very first bid on e**y at about the same time... on a LF camera. Well, I hit the enter key and ended up winning a brand NIB Sinar X AND then...a brand NIB Sinar F2. Imagine my surprise!

    I thought the bid on the X didn't get registered and, therefore, I didn't win it. Of course, as it happened, the auctions ended within seconds of each other. So, that's when I thought, "better make a bid on the F2." The end result was that I ended up winning BOTH cameras!

    In retrospect, I can chuckle over the incident. But, at the time... I thought, "holy *$&%*, what am I going to do with 2 brand new, expensive Sinar 4x5 cameras???" My wife, needless to say, had one BIG chuckle over "my" situation!

    Fortunately or, unfortunately, I wasn't fully aware of how e**y worked or how the second bid might have been retracted. Even if I did... I probably wouldn't have done so considering I was the final bidder and it wouldn't have been fair to the seller. It was a pretty funny experience.

    So, for what you paid for your camera... I hope your stay in the doghouse isn't a prolonged one!

    Anyway, welcome to the world of LF imaging... go out, burn some film, and have fun with the new camera!

    Cheers

    That was a cheap "slip", compared to my $2000 one...

    But at least I got a fine Carbon Infinity for it.

    Kino,
    With a little black silicone and some plumbing, you could turn the doghouse into a smaller version of your darkroom.

    Ole, I've been meaning to ask if y'r Carbon is the one that got no bids at $1,750. As has been pointed out, there aren't very many of them.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    I don't know, I can't find that one. Mine is one that failed to reach reserve price, but the seller decided it was close enough. With postage and Norwegian taxes it ended up at just about $2000. A lot of money, but for a lot of camera. And a camera that could have been designed for my use, even!

    Frank, looks like a great deal to me. Which meter did you "select" with this deal, was it a nice, new digital spot meter? This sounds like an excellent way to work to me. All you need is a sturdy tripod and a trip out to shoot now. Want to see some prints! tim
