    FS: Leaf Valeo 22wi in h-mount with widepan 4x5 sliding adpater for 1800

    Hi all,

    I am selling my Leaf Valeo 22wi in Hasselblad h-mount and a matching Widepan sliding adapter with graflock plate for 4x5.
    I think it is still a perfect studio, table-top set up, since the 22 megapixel dalsa sensor is still used in the latest Aptus II-5 backs and delivers wonderful "creamy" files. Actually I like them a lot better than the files form the Kodak Sensors.

    The back itself must have had a little accident with the previous owner, since there is a little hairline crack in the housing, which is purely cosmetic, and which I have seen with other backs beig offered in the past. Nothing serious. The crack is under the tape in picture 3.
    Another flaw is a tiny pinpoint scratch on the protection glass, which shows like a dust spot in the final image, if you can detect it, which usually is only the case in monochromatic pictures, i.e. blue sky or a white paper back-drop. Its easily retouched or one could exchange the protection glass, which sets you back roughly $400 if you perform it yourself. I never bothered. I attach a picture tht shows the effect.

    Because of these flaws, I will sell the back and Widepan adater for modest 1800€ (I think at least that is, currently on ebay.co.uk the same back is listed for 2500 GBP / 2850€ without Widepan adapter).

    For anyone interested in using the back outdoors, I do have a portable solution kit, consisting of 2 20gb hardisks, 3 sets of Batteries, chrager, Ipaq hx 2490 and dp-67 software. I would let go of this for an additional 300€.

    Also I have a Hasselblad H1 Body and HC 80mm lens, if someone would like to go this route. Id need to get 1500€ for this.


    I am living in Zurich,Swizerland, but can ship from Germany, so that there are no incoming taxes for those living in the EU.
    This said, I also have German bank account, so that a banktransfer in € using iban and BIC is my preferred method of paying, since paypal is a rip of and would not grant protection anyways for purchases outside of ebay. I do have excellent feedback on ebay over the past 10 years under the user name "fotolli", if youd like to check on that one. And no, I am not a dealer, just a gearhead and actually I buy more than I sell.

    If interested, please pm me.

    Thanks,

    Oliver

    If someone would like to trade the entire kit, i.e. H1 + 80mm lens + Valeo 22wi for something like a Phase One P25 / P30 or Leaf Aptus Series back in Hasselblad H-mount,
    Id be very interested.
