For Sale: Horseman SW-D II Pro camera (V plate) with 35mm and 55mm lenses.
This is a flexible, robust medium-format digital set-up (takes any digital back with V mount, though plates for other backs are readily available), with +/- 17mm (i.e. total of 34mm) movement of the back in both vertical and horizontal, and is light and compact enough to be hand-held if really necessary (camera weighs 2lbs without lens and back). Comes with Rodenstock 35mm f4.5 and 55mm f4.5 APO Sironar Digital lenses in excellent condition, with no marks, scuffs or damage, including front and back caps and UV filters. Two Horseman model 21511 bright viewfinders with masks for the 35mm and 55mm lenses (changing masks on one viewfinder became too much of a hassle and risk as the masks are not too robust, so I got the luxury of a second viewfinder to avoid this ). Everything is about 2 1/2 years old and has been very carefully looked after. This is a great system for architectural photography and landscapes, and with the shift on the back generating multiple images for stitching is straightforward.
