    FS: Arca Swiss 4x5 F-Line C w/Micro Orbix

    I have a mint 4x5" F-Line Field Compact with Micrometric Orbix that I purchased New from Rod Klukas of Photomark a couple of years ago. I also have the binocular viewfinder that is used with the camera that I purchased used from Midwest Photo Exchange for $450.

    This camera currently retails for $5,143.00 without accessories.

    Mine is as close to new as it gets with original box. I cannot include any lensboards as I replaced this camera with an M-Line 2 last year and use them. The camera is a wonderful tool, but I use a P45 now and the M-Line 2 satisfies my needs better.

    Arca Swiss F-Line Field Compact: $4,000 Firm (Shipping & Insurance + PayPal Fees Additional)
    Binocular Viewer + $250 (Shipping & Insurance + PayPal Fees Additional)

    is this the same system as this?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Arca-Swiss-4x5-F...ht_1623wt_1141

    I'm wondering because the price differential seem enormous.

    Kind regards

    No!
    That camera is an older F Model that takes 171mm lensboards; does not have Micro Orbix, and as the ad says, is "missing paint."

    Guys, this is one SWEET camera if you are shooting with a digital back. Make NO mistake, without the Orbix you do not want to be shooing digital. With the Orbix, it becomes a dream as the micro adjustments are spot on. This is a fantastic camera, one I have dreamed about myself for several years but could never afford.
