    Leaf Valeo 17wi kit

    Hi there,

    I have a Leaf Valeo 17wi kit for sale, Hasselblad H mount. Comes with the digital magazine which has been upgraded to 20gb, even though it says 10gb on the side, so it can be used untethered on location as well as tethered in the studio. Comes with three batteries, charger, firewire cables and a lowepro case. Asking US$2500 ONO.

    Cheers,
    Jason.

    Does the digital mag work without the ipaq that was a part of it or is the ipaq necessary for untethered shooting?

    Hi there.

    The iPac is not necessary at all.

    I have never had one. It was a bit of a gimmick really as it was not particularly useful, just too early on in the development of the technology I think. I had a friend who had one and he used it a few times, then left it in the cupboard, more trouble than it was worth.

    Basically you just think of the digital mag as a really big CF card, with two batteries, as it powers the mag, and the digital back at the same time.

    I am selling as I have bought an Aptus II, and hung onto this as a backup, but I just don't use it, and my local dealer has a loaner, so I thought I would get some cash for it.

    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

    Cheers,
    Jason.

    Thanks for the answer. I see now that it is for a H system. I'm interested in V. otherwise its very tempting. How is the quality at 200 ASA - is it as good as at 50?

    The quality is OK. Not as good as 50, but still very usable. I fine when you stop "pixel peeping" things at 100% on screen and actually make a print 16x20 is not a problem at all, even if it is "only" 17mp.

    Cheers,
    Jason.

    Still for sale obviously!

    Now asking US$2300.
