    That's exactly what it is! I guess I just never had a need to try it. Maybe I'll put it on Ebay as a "rare collectable" and start the bidding at $500.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    A 30" Roll paper easel. It automatically rolls paper from one side to the other, variable length, completely light-tight on wheels, with a 30" roll of colour paper in it that I've never been able to use...
    $1, pickup-only ebay auction not sure why I own it. Currently in storage

    EDIT: Okay, I lied, I own a lot of weird stuff.

    8" Automatic roll paper cutter, you set the length of the paper you want, load the roll, and it cuts the paper to size and leaves it in a neat pile at the end. Takes about half a second for each sheet and has a very satisfying slice noise. $1.

    Ilford 2150 Automatic RC paper processory, maximum width is 20" (? I think), didnt come with the dryer attachment, but I havent had anywhere to plumb it in to try it. $20 (still had the $950 price tag attached)

    A Noritsu C41 film processor & and a Fuji analogue minilab. Plus spare parts for pretty much everything - an entire second minilab in boxes. Roll paper cartridges for the minilab, about a dozen, each with paper from 4"-8". The thing I like about the minilab is that it's just an automatic enlarger, it prints optically - load the negative, it focuses automatically and does all the exposure based on your inputs, then it shoots into the processing unit, then out the other end as a finished optical print. $2.70. Currently in storage for lack of space.

    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    I have a Kodak Hotshoe to Flashcube adapter. I have no use for it, but it is kinda neat looking.

    we have five of those 2150 machines where I work. one works, but is largely unused. another works, but is mothballed. the rest are parts machines, on top of a whole slew of new parts, the tools and field manuals. we were set and ran our lab into the dying days--where we are now. nobody seems to want those 2150s. the surplus lot doesn't want them. none of the local photo schools or arts centers want them. it's a real shame. this is like a stockpile of ilford parts, and the value is like zero or less than zero. like a burden almost.

    I don't consider it to be "esoteric" though. I used it every day for almost ten years. same with wing lynches.

    the oddest piece of equipment we have is our 1 mp Nikon dslr we bought back in 1995-96. It draws the oddest looks from the photo students who tour our studio. built on an F4 body, but the size of an RB67, no LCD screen, uses a tiny tv screen that slips on the hot shoe and runs on 2 AAs. shot to PCMIA cards. I tell them--your cell phone has higher resolution than this. They love the 2150s though, anyone who takes a darkroom class loves that machine. Too bad nobody seems to actually want one.

    I'm glad I got mine for $10 then! The auction was for a processing thermometer with this thrown in. I see them pop up every now and then for $10-$30, so don't get your hopes up.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    - a Leitz AUFSU accessory finder, great for street shots
    - a Zeiss Sonnar 1.5/5cm in Leica (!) threadmount (original, made in 1943 or so), and it's not a russian fake
    - a Zeiss Biogon 4.5/21mm, made for Zeiss-Ikon Contarex, with an extremely rare M-Leica adapter

    I suppose it would be the Instoscope extinction light meter, complete with Scheiner scale.
