    FS: Cambo WRS-4000 Anniversary Edition Technical Camera Kit

    Reluctantly, I am selling my Cambo WRS-4000 Revolution Anniversary Edition technical camera system. This kit is in like-new/mint condition, and was purchased new from Capture Integration in October 2011. It's use has been limited to mounting a lens and digital back and taking several test shots. I am selling the system because I simply haven't used it, and have other priorities (kids, grandkids, elderly parent) that can use the cash.

    This kit is #47 of the limited Anniversary Edition (AE), in the titanium finish. The camera and lenses are truly beautiful pieces, and if I were a collector, I would have them in a display case. Alas, I'm not a collector and have been slowly trying to reduce my "investment" in photographic equipment. The Cambo AE was described by Guy Mancuso in this thread on GetDPI.

    The WRS AE kit consists of:

    WRS-4000 Revolution Anniversary Edition #47
    Cambo Wide-DS 28mm SuperDigitar XL AE Model
    Cambo Wide-T/S 43mm Digitar XL AE Model
    SLW-88 Mamiya 645 Adapter Plate
    WDS-619 Universal Ground Glass
    WDS-630 Shiftable Viewing Plate
    WDS-580 Viewfinder
    Cambo Viewfinder Mask for 43 XL Digitar Lens
    Cambo Viewfinder Mask for 28 XL/HR Lenses
    Hot Shoe-Mounted Flashlight
    Laser Cut Special Anniversary Edition Case
    Certificate of Authenticity

    This kit cost me $20,678 brand new, and it's still in the condition it was in when I purchased it. I'm selling it for $16,000, including PayPal fee and FedEx shipping to CONUS. I cannot ship internationally. I will accept other forms of payment (check, bank transfer), and will ship when the payment clears.

    Reasonable offers will be considered.

    Since I respond to email faster than PMs, contact me by email at "joe dot colson at me dot com" or by using the Contact page on my website.

    Thanks for looking.

    Joe

    "felix5616", you're right. It is gorgeous! Thanks.

    Ken and Guy, I can see the drool from here. I can be an enabler.

    And to make the deal even sweeter, I'm including the following accessories in the package:


    Each of these items is like-new. The value of these alone is several hundred dollars.

    Thanks for looking.

    Well, Joe's just following proper protocol by offering it to you first....

    Really gorgeous kit. Someone from CI in Carmel may be interested, Joe. I'll give them a call to let them know.

    The proper terminology for the Gepe flex extension is a Libby adapter.

    Only 65 of these gorgeous Cambo Anniversary Editions made: Cambo

    Even though it has Guy's name on it I'd be all over this turnkey system if I hadn't already pieced together my own Cambo kit. This one's nicer...

    This kit really is beautiful. For the past year I've talked myself into saving to the arca rm3di. It's hard not to second guess my original choice after seein this.

    Hmmm........

    Realy want to buy this, but I have a P65+ and
    I have heard that the 28mm is no good with this back!!??

    Do you want to sell it without that lens?

    Re: FS: Cambo WRS-4000 Anniversary Edition Technical Camera Kit

    Yes, I'd sell the kit without the 28mm, but I'd prefer not to. The 28mm is a very fine lens and wouldn't pose a problem with the P65+. The 28mm adds value to the package if you eventually want to resell it.

    Re: FS: Cambo WRS-4000 Anniversary Edition Technical Camera Kit

    This sale may have came a little too early as I have just starting researching and considering my options. I no longer wish to shoot landscapes with a DSLR as I am going off the 3:2 format.

    I am interested in this kit but with a budget of around 15-16k GBP I wonder what sort of digital back the remaining cash is going to get me.

    Any advice would be appreciated. I'm from the UK, not sure if this would cause a problem.

    Joe, if you ever think of splitting this up I would be interested in the 28mm. Thanks, Harshan

    .....
    On a budget, I'd look for a P45/P45+, P40+, and maybe even an IQ140 might be in range.

    Thanks Ken,

    I will be searching over the next couple of days to see what I can find. This set up does fit my search criteria.

    I thought my budget was a little too low, well it most likely is. I may well miss out on this cracking deal as I don't want to be pulling my hair out saving on my abysmal wage trying to get funds together for the digital back.

    I will keep a close eye on this thread to see if Joe has any luck, in the mean time I will search for a back.

    If I get to that point, I'll post it on this thread. I'm not there yet.

    I'm sure there will be some good values on digital backs as people start trading up to the new IQ260 and 280. This forum is one of the best places to watch for values.

    Joe,

    You need to put Willow in touch with Harshdreams.

    It sounds like between them they want the kit.

    Exactly. Hate to see folks get out of the tech cams. I surely miss mine. But I totally understand under use and family comes first stuff. I wish I could have bought this. Congrats
