    Leica R Auto Bellows

    EX+, in box, fully coupled Leica R auto stop down precision geared bellows (with compendium hood for select lenses). I used it with a 135/2.8 ... but with a 100/2.8 macro it'd be something else ... a 180/2.8 APO is also mind boggling.

    Insets show close ups using the 135/2.8. (shown mounted) to shoot a M8 detail and M35/1.4 detail.

    $575. plus shipping and insurance.

    Lens not included

    Peter: You might as well grab the mint R9/DMR as back-up while you're at it... In fact PLEASE grab it quickly!

    I am about to place Marc on moderated restriction... You know, so I have to PERSONALLY review every post he makes BEFORE they become public.

    PS: Marc, that looks like an old, classic "Tiltall" tripod -- surprised to see it in your high-tech studio!!!

    Cheers,

    I like the calendar idea but coupled with a spreadsheet to track gear expenditures...

    Well, then that spreadsheet calendar would have to be hung with as much care as a cheese-cake nudie calendar ... where the wife will never see it : -)

    Funny that you mention that Peter. Irakly and I were just talking about that.
    We'll talk some more, and approach Guy and Jack with our thoughts.

    Re: Leica R Auto Bellows

    Would love to do a lighting and product shoot workshop with you Marc . Jack and I already have talked about doing this . There is a really nice studio in San Francisco that we can rent that is packed with lighting and such. I have been wanting to do a lighting class with product and people for a long time. Maybe even NY we can rent a space for 2 or 3 days and go to town. We really would like to engage more MF shooters in our workshops also. Most folks now seem to come down to 2 or 3 systems . For me the M8's , Nikons and Now the MF world. Like to see more and more folks do these workshops. Honestly there is a wealth of info doing them plus there fun as can be. Victor you should sneak away and do the San Juan one we still have room. We also have about 4 or 5 spouses hanging out

    I dont see why not. However only the older LTM visoflex have the 6x6 needed. This lens is quite sharp.
    Fotodiox has a LTM to hasselblad (actually, I can send you one, I have 4!)

    I was also trying to get a direct Viso bayonet to contax (pr HB) made. that's why the extras.

    It is not something you would do a lot of, but the ability to use long lenses on the Contax 645 is interesting.

    regards
    Victor
