Photography Equipment Sale
You can get the latest information at the blog about the equipment sale.
August 15, 2012.--This is taking far longer than I thought with work, life, health issues and other things in life. Anyway, I'm working on the descriptions and photos of each piece of equipment, starting with the lenses, then the cameras and peripheral equipment, which will have individual entries in my photo gear blog
I got my first camera, a Minolta SRT-101 and 58mm f1.2 lens, in September 1969, after arriving at my first duty station, McClellan Air Force Base (AFB), after technical school. I wanted to learn photography and the base had this camera and lens at the price of $200. Shortly after that I added a Vivitar 200mm lens for $40 (new) and a Minolta 21mm f4 lens for $75 (used), the latter requiring mirror lockup as it was a pre-SLR lens.
I didn't add any equipment until long after I was discharged and finished graduate school and was working for the US Geological Survey. It was between 1980 and 2000 that I expanded the system with cameras, lenses and equipment to learn and do more photography.
When I looked at adding equipment I kept two things in mind. The first was to buy both lenses I frequently used and lenses which were curious to own and use. The latter are the more esoteric, collectable or rare lenses. You will see this in the list of lenses and equipment below.
The second was that I always tried to find and buy equipment in the best condition, preferably excellent or better. All of the equipment, with only a few exceptions, was purchased used, as noted in the description, and has been kept in excellent condition in storage and in use.
There are three different catagories of equipment for sale. The first are the cameras, the second are the lenses and the third are the peripheral equipment. Each catagory is listed separately to help anyone interested in specific types of equipment and specific pieces of equipment.
A table of each type of equipment is also available as a PDF file for the cameras and for the lenses and extras which have information about each of the cameras, lenses, and equipment. These lists will be updated as items are sold or removed from sale.
The following is a list of the cameraa in the collection with photos and descriptions of each on using the link for the cameras. As indicated in the description, not all the cameras are currently for sale. Decisions will be made based on the sale of the other camera to meet my goal.

The following is a list of other equipment in the collection with photos and descriptions of each on using the link for each piece of equipment. As indicated in the description, not all the pieces are currently for sale. Decisions will be made based on the sale of the other pieces to meet my goal.

The following notes apply as indicated by the asterick (*) with the piece in the list above.
No flashes are for sale. All four 360-PX flashes are current in use in my studio with Pocket Wizards (PW) to work with my Canon and 4x5 camera systems. The cables are leftover from the pre-PW days (meaning, I couldn't endorse PW's more).
For now I'm am only accepting cashiers check or US Postal Order. All pieces of equipment to be prepaid, preferably with tracking to ensure it arrives. I will notify you when payment is received and cleared either by deposit or cash. At that time, unless specified differently, the piece(s) will be shipped USPS priority mail with tracking, and the tracking information will be forwarded to you to follow it.
Payments can be sent to:
The price for all pieces includes shipping (above) within the US. Shipping outside the US will not be included in the price. The buyer should specify what carrier and priority they prefer, and I will get an estimate. If it is near the amount for shipping in the US, there will be no additional charge. If not, a portion charge will be included for you to agree before you make payment.
All the equipment is in excellent or better condition, all cleaned and pretested (any batteries included but separate). Returns are not expected or accepted unless there is clear and obvious reason for the return. And it must be agreed by me to accept it and return payment based on the reason, piece of equipment when returned. In short, you buy as is. It's all great gear in excellent condition.
I understand sending money on the promise of the equipment. I've been through this from both side numerous times. You can check my buyer rating on Ebay (although old) for wsrphoto. When I can establish a Paypal account, I will add the link to this Web page to use in place of mailing a check or money order.
You can direct inquires to me at information at WSR Photography.
