FS: Gitzo G2227 tripod and Arca B1 ballhead
« on: October 06, 2017, 12:01:03 PM »

Having in the past used view cameras up to 8x10" and many smaller film and digital cameras, I now almost never use tripods at all (my present cameras are a Sony RX10 iii and a Canon G5X pocket camera.)

Thus I would like to find new homes for my trusty Gitzo carbon fibre G2227 tripod (3-section legs plus center column), used a lot but in excellent condition. There was a detailed review of this tripod by Alain Briot on LuLa in January 2009: https://luminous-landscape.com/gitzo-2227-review/
There are none currently listed on Ebay, but Statricks says the current nationwide average selling price is $432, with a range from $377 to $486.
I am asking $400 plus shipping, but I prefer to sell to someone who comes to see it and checks it out here in Newton, MA, U.S.A., so if you check it out and buy it, you can save the shipping costs and I'll offer an additional 10% discount, reducing the price to $360.

I am also selling my original Arca Swiss B1 ballhead. Ebay currently lists five with asking prices of $195, $299, $258.75, $239.96, and $295, for an average of $257.60.
I have been using an RRS ballhead for several years, so my B1 has not been used for a long time and has gotten quite stiff. I have cleaned it and it works somewhat better, but it might need an overhaul. I understand there is an outfit in Chicago that does this. I am asking $150 plus shipping.

I will entertain offers on either item.

Contact me by PM, and include your email address and location.
