    Phase P30 MFDB for Mamiya---like New!

    I've decided to upgrade-----not that I really needed to, but I felt I deserved it---and wanted to do my part to stimulate the economy.

    So, up for sale is my Phase P30 MFDB for Mamiya 645AFD, AFD II, AFD III, or Phase 645AF camera bodies. This back is in like new condition, and has always been tenderly cared for. (read: anal retentive)

    The Pelican case is like new---that's because it never left the studio. If you look carefully at the photos, you'll notice that the firewire is unused and has the original zip-ties. Capture One Pro DB software is unused and unregistered----so yes, as far as I know, it can still be upgraded to the latest Pro version. Manual, cleaning supplies, masks, Metal cover plate, battery and charger. And also included is the highly sought after protective rubber plug covers from Capture Integration. Wow! No scratches or marks----bit of lint in the one image I didn't blow off. Checked with Capture Integration and verified that this back has the latest firmware as well.

    You can see images that I took with the P30 and Mamiya on my lanscape website, www.houseoflandscapes.com
    Longer exposures can be seen in the Arizona/Antelope Slot Canyons gallery. Most recent P30 landscape images are in the Canada gallery (Yoho, Banff, Jasper, Kootenay)

    The Phase P30 is in what I consider to be the "sweet-spot" for MFDBs. Simply a fantastic digital back!

    US$11,750.00 plus cost of shipping and insurance.

    I’ve seen this back and can tell you that it is just as Ken says it is. One of the reasons that Ken and I get along so well is that we are both very anal when it comes to taking care of our stuff although I have to admit I took the protective plastic off my screen.

    This is a sweet deal for anyone!

    Ummm. Guilty. I admit----the original plastic protective cover is still on the P30 and has never been removed.....but I did disclose above being anal retentive.... (me, not ever you Don...)

    What about all the hot chicks you've photographed with this back?

    I've been asked by unnamed sources to post more images of my Phase P30 MFDB. Well, apparently I didn't get your attention very well the first time around. So here's one more image. The original plastic protector remains on the LCD.

    As you can tell, this wonderful MFDB has been lovingly taken care of, and has always been handled with care.

    Asking US$11,500 plus cost of shipping.

    I had head from my secret sources at Phase that they were coming out with a new improved carrying design. This sure beats the Pelican case. This must be the superduper upgraded version.

    Ken,
    you are killing me. This is the back that was mounted on the AFD I bought from you right? Gahh! I hate being poor!

    I have to say, as a young, heterosexual male, and professional fashion photographer, this is just plain offensive.

    Life is short. You'd be amazed how far a sense of humor will take you....

    Relax. The young lady doesn't come with the MFDB.

    But she got the job done! And yes, humor makes everything better.

    I have no problem with humor, but there is such a thing as poor taste.

    I have seen national ads for tequila and toothpaste that go far further than this. Heck, the Victoria's Secret ad rag that comes about once a week goes farther than this.

    Maybe Phase One can take their marketing in that direction.

    The Phase P30 MFDB is still available, and will also include a *spoof* Phase One Capture Integration Poster. (whoopee!) The model has a great sense of humor, and I know the guys over at Capture Integration do too!

    For those that want a *spoof* poster (poster is 16x24) send $9 shipping and any amount. All proceeds will go to the model.

    Just a (very) blatant attempt to get this bumped.

    btw I have the poster hanging in my studio - looks even better than on a computer!

    Yes, the P30 MFDB is available---and I will entertain reasonable offers, as this back is in pristine condition.

    Don---Thanks for the bump to give this nice Phase P30 some attention. I just don't think I could find a model with larger breasts to pose with this MFDB!

    fantaaaaaaaaaaastic shot and a much welcome bit of humour as well.

    We have an Aussie expression for inappropriate censure - 'wowserism' - calls for immediate banning in my book.

    Good luck with the sale - I wonder what the model's expression is on this shot? bet its worth the price of admission alone

    I guess I better change the poster to say that, "There are three good reasons to choose Capture Integration..."

    The Phase P30 MFDB is still available. Get a *spoof* poster too. $11,500 and I'll pay shipping/insurance in the continental US. I'm not sure if I can get the model to make the delivery....

    Actually, she's a really good friend with a great sense of humor. She was only startled when she found out how much the P30 nestled in her cleavage was worth...

    Do I have to be a Phase One owner to get one of these (the poster, I mean)?

    I knew there must be some really good reason that so many folks were opting for a Phase One....I just didn't know it was this good.

    Now you know why.....Phase calls it an "open platform..."

    Phase *spoof* poster is available to everyone! (all proceeds to the model).

    P30 sale pending/closed----thanks for a fun thread!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!
