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 being 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. It΄s 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. I΄d 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 off 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 you΄d 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.
