I got a very good deal (about $1100) on a Canham DLC on ebay a couple of years ago. It is a great camera, very light and has tons of movements, tilt, swing, shift, rise, no rear rise though, lots of bellows extension, and did I mention it is light. About 4 lbs, I use it on a Bogan 3001 tripod with out any problems. If you are patient, you could probably find one on ebay for about what you want to pay.
