FS: Arca Swiss M-Line Two MF ** UPDATED **
« on: October 24, 2012, 03:53:50 AM »

Very reluctantly I have decided to offer for sale my beloved 18 month old Arca-Swiss M-Line Two MF camera. I have recognised to take my work forward the camera is of less importance than the lighting used and am trying to free up some funds to invest in more battery generators.

Purchased from a Arca dealer here in the UK 18 months ago, the camera has had very little use and what use it has had was only indoors so never exposed to harsh environments. The camera has sat wrapped up in lens wraps in a Pelican case so is in pristine, like new condition. Comes boxed, complete with the standard bellows and thinner, 'N' ground glass.

To purchase new in the UK these cameras cost 3700 so I am asking 2600 plus any Paypal fees and includes FREE UK postage and 50% off the total cost of international postage.

Feel free to ask any question.

Gareth

Found this great video on the YouTube channel of the dealer whom I purchased my M-Line Two giving an excellent explanation of the cameras functions.

** UPDATE **

Price reduction to 2800 plus fees and postage

For those of you on the fence about view cameras and wide angle lenses please see the pictures attached below illustrating the Arca M-Line's party piece of being able to get the function carriers to touch. Something that almost all view camera's, including Arca's own F-Line camera won't do.

Why is this important....?? With some technical wide angle lenses having such a small flange focal length (rear element to film/sensor plane) this allows you to get the distances between carriers small enough to enable the use of pretty much any lens available on this camera. Most view camera either cannot be used with very wide angle lenses at all or involve very deep recessed lens panels which are never great to work with on small 6x9 cameras. The picture shows a Schneider wide angle lens attached to the camera and with the function carriers touching. As can be seen, the rear lens element protrudes beyond the rear of the camera body.

Any questions, get in touch.  ;D

Camera still available.

Decided to reduce the price again, now 2700 + fees includes FREE UK or 50% off the total cost of international postage.

That is now 1000 off the original purchase price of this camera and this is indistinguishable from a new camera right down to the original Arca boxes.

Any questions, PM me.

I've had a few enquiries from forum members regarding the cost of international postage on this sale so with this in mind I'll offer to pay 50% towards the postage cost to anyone outside the UK interested in purchasing my Arca M-Line Two MF or FREE postage to any UK resident.

Arca-Swiss M-Line Two MF - Mint, as new condition with all origianal boxes 2700 plus any PayPal/Banking fees and includes FREE UK or 50% off the total cost of international postage.

** PICTURE UPDATE **

For those concerned about the physical size of the M-Line Two MF, I thought I'd add this image to illustrate the compact dimensions of the camera. So to include some scale, here pictured with a Rodenstock lens and Phase One P+ back (NB. not included in the sale).

Even with these compact dimensions the ML2 is sill capable of a total of 70mm vertical shift and 70mm horizontal shift so perfect for those wanting massive stitching capabilities resulting in huge detailed files.
