    Epson RD-1s and Epson 4490

    Easiest way to contact me is probably by email at chris_plis at hotmail dot com

    Epson RD-1s - $1150 Shipped and Paypalíd
    Found this for sale locally for a good price. So I went to look at it with the intention of purchasing it to resell for a few bucks. Picked it up, when I held it I made a mess in my pants, handed a stranger a large wad of cash and took it home. I was infatuated and I swore I would shower this beautiful camera with the finest M-mount glass. However after two days of fondling I came back to reality and remembered two things: a) Iím broke and donít own any M-mount glass, so I canít afford a lens for it never mind a Ďlux and b) sometime next week my framer will call me and request a large wad of cash for the work sheís done for me. So here it is for sale.
    If you didnít know, this camera feels great in your hands. I would say itís in user condition. Not many marks or anything except for one pretty substantial scratch on the screen (looks like there was something that the screen rubbed against when the previous owner folded it in). A little paint loss along the bottom of camera but those are the only real noticeable things. Look at the pictures and you can decide for yourself the condition. Definitely not a shelf queen but it doesnít look as bad when youíre actually viewing images on it instead of just looking at the blank screen. I played with it a little with a Zeiss 21mm the previous seller had. Focus and everything seemed accurate but itís a wide lens so itís hard to tell forsure. The images looked good though, this thing with Zeiss seems like a nice combination.
    Comes with 3 batteries (1 Epson, 2 Fuji), charger, three 2 GB memory cards (1 SanDisk and 2 Axxen) and the body cap. Since I have bills to pay coming up shortly I will ship so that arrives within 5 business days (probably faster) so you can check it out. I will only accept returns if something was very grossly misdescribed (but please look at the pictures). Also if you do return it, you cover the return shipping and you have to use a method that will get to me in 5 business days. However Iíve sold quite a few things on the forums and never had anything returned so I donít see this being a real problem.
    Asking $1150 shipped and paypalíd to Canada/US (which should cover my initial purchase price, dry cleaning for my pants and a case of beer to drown the sorrows that will result from seeing this thing go). Prefer Canadian funds and Canadian buyers but Iím fine with shipping to the US (and maybe US dollars if youíd prefer). Add $100 and Iíll ship to anywhere else in the world (seems like a lot I know but the 5 business days thing is expensive).

    Epson 4490 (with 35mm ANR Inserts) - $140 Shipped and Paypalíd
    Second up for sale is my Epson 4490. Asking $140 dollars for it shipped and paypalíd to either Canada or the US. I can hear you now, ď$140, thatís crazy for a used flatbed! I could get a v500 from B&H for that price!Ē Yes you could, however, this is pretty much the same scanner as the v500 except that supposedly this one takes longer to warm up (although Iíve never actually noticed this). So why buy from me you ask? Well depending where you live B&H might charge you shipping. Additionally, B&H wouldnít through in two 35mm BetterScanning ANR glass inserts (yeah thatís a $60 value and theyíve only been used once). Comes with the power and USB cables, 35mm film holder with ANR glass and flimsy plastic. LF film holder (I believe thatís what it is at least) and the black plastic cover thing that you use if you want to use it as a normal document scanner. Doesnít come with the disc with drivers, however you can download these from the Epson website. Only reason Iím selling this is because I found a really good deal on a Plustek 7400 and thatís all I use now (I would probably keep this just for proofing except I donít have space on my desk). (accesorr

    Additionally I have two random items for sale:
    Manfrotto 055CX3 centre column (make me an offer and weíll work something out)
    Ď04 Acura TSX A-Spec suspension. If anyone is interested in this send me a message and we can figure something out. Currently posted for sale on a few Acura forums but I thought I might as well throw it on here.
