    Sold: Alpa 12 TC

    Well i am not happy about listing this because i really like it a lot. But business needs calls for a Mamiya 28mm instead which I will trade for plus cash. I really need to sell this as a package and first let me say the Schnieder 47mm XL lens is outstanding and also with the biggest image circle so for you shifters there is nothing better that gives this kind of range. As you see in the images parts include. I also will include the Fotoman Rf focusing aid. Price is 5900.00 plus 100 ship and insured UPS 3 day select

    TC body
    Mamiya /Phase mount
    Finger grip
    Hots shoe with spirit level
    Zeiss 25/28 finder that we use on the M8 works pretty good and small
    Wake up cable for Phase backs
    Front standard or back standard cover plate
    Alpa Schnieder 47mm XL lens. This has the biggest image circle of all the Alpa lenses , makes it ideal for stitching
    All boxes and such bought maybe 3 months ago.
    RRS camera plate also

    This is completely ready to go just add a Phase back and your off and shooting. This is a very small package and great for travel

    Re: FS: Alpa 12 TC

    At this point I have been asked to sell it in parts. i would rather not do that at this time and price will not drop folks. It's this or I keep it. The value is well above 6800.00

    BTW this is all brand new gear about 3 months old tops.

    Also if you need a Phase One back for this, I can have that all arranged for you through Lance and Capture Integration.

    Re: FS: Alpa 12 TC

    I just shot these with my lights I bought from David Kipper . There Elinchrom 600 watt mono's . I only have one softbox at the moment the rest is on it's way but i used 2 grid spots a small softbox and my Metz 54 flash for the red background. So not to bad for not having exactly all the right accessories for this. Was in a little hurry to do this too

    Love them so far . Lightboxes from Elinchrom are a pain to setup. i know there is a secret to this. How to keep everything on and just release the rings

    Guy, just to let you know there's a pretty good price for the 28mm on Ebay right now from a reputable seller.


    Man this is a nice setup, I'll let my friends know if they would be interested in the purchase!

    Peter,

    "DO NOT SELL THIS KIT." I called him and told him the same thing.

    But would he listen?

    I would agree with you guys except that I know Guy's shooting style... To be as gentle as possible, he's not a particularly, ahem, "patient" photographer. (Understatement! ) Anyway, I am convinced the absolute best choice Guy can make for his style of shooting is to get the 28mm Mamiya...

    Cheers,

    Jack that was pretty mello. LOL

    I'm a wide angle freak and I almost never crop ,so it has to be there. It's just easier for me to work this way.

    what did the alpa offer except wider angle lenses? a bit more compact, to be sure, but none of the efficiency of the mamiya. i think guy is on the right track if he is looking for wide

    Exactly I need the one system to be the same and my only really complete system is the Mamiya glass. I also have corrections built into C1 for a 28mm.

    Well I found the lens I need and I will only offer this to GetDPI members. If you really want to steal this for 5700.00 than I will do it. But seriously folks this is as low as I can possible go and i would rather keep it in a sense. The lens alone is 3600 new, so you can keep what you need and sell the rest. i just don't have the time or resources to do that. The lens I need is at B&H and If i don't hurry Kurt is going to get it first. LOL

    I'll put up a steak and cocktails in Florida that says you'll have it in your shopping cart before the B&H business day is over...

    Hmmmm, I can taste it now... Vodka martini extra cold followed by a Ceasar salad, rare filet mignon topped with a slice of seared fois gras -- and if there's room, maybe a Creme Brulee and Sauternes for the finish...

    Probably a typo or pricing mistake on the earlier price. I wouldn't count on them to fill the order if that was the case.

    Re: FS: Alpa 12 TC

    Make that a steak dinner . LOL

    Yes i would remove the plate from the sale if other back owners did not need it. Andrew has to wait for the Mamiya plate to come in and he could really use this plate. One Pro helping another as it should be

    If someone wants the rest of the Alpa with lens and all the parts outside the Mamiya plate let me know know. That's all you Hassy shooters, Leaf and Sinar too.

    I can sell without the Mamiya plate 4400 shipped

    Once again i will take a bath on gear. i should be shot in the head. I should have listened to my first instinct and got the 28mm in the beginning.
