    ALPA Ground Glass and Loupe

    I'd like to sell my ALPA ground glass with Maxwell Precision Optics fresnel, and ALPA leather focusing bellows. The Maxwell fresnel is marked for a P25/P45 back, but he can change the marking to indicate a different size back if required. In additiion, I'll print out and include ALPA overlays to indicate the effect of shifting.

    These items are like new, and essentially unused. There are no visible marks anywhere, and the leather looks (and smells) new. I'm embarrassed to say what this stuff cost, but if you want it, I'd take $1200 for the lot. I'll pay for Paypal and shipping to CONUS.

    I wondered if this is PGS (Pro Grid Screen) groundglass (4 mm grid), interchangeable format mask and Reflexite Fresnel lens? Also is the focusing bellow the small one or the larger one with loupe?

    Thanks for the response.

    The bellows is the one with the "integrated loupe." See http://www.alpa.ch/en/products/frami...g-bellows.html

    The screen was made by Bill Maxwell. Rather than a grid, it has the outlines for a P24/P45 sized sensor. Bill said he can change those outlines if a different back is to be used. See http://www.mattclara.com/maxwell/

    You can replace the ground glass with the new ALPA version http://www.alpa.ch/en/products/frami...GS-screen.html, but I find it hard to believe that it is better than a Maxwell.
