Well - it looks like it's time to sell off some gear. Canon's new 1DX is out and it appears I am now 2 generations behind, so given this is what I do for a living, I have to suck it up and plop down the big bucks.
For some lucky people, that means a deal on gear.
I am selling two cameras - BODIES ONLY. Fortunately, I don't have to buy new lenses as the new camera will accept the lenses I have.
What I have to sell is:
A Canon 7D - [link]
with a BG-E7 Battery grip - which effectively doubles battery life.
Both are in pristine condition.
I am asking $1200. If you happen to think that's too much, then make an offer, I'll consider it but doubt I'll take it.
Let me emphasize, this camera is in perfect condition.
I am also selling a Canon 1DS MarkII. [link]
This has been my main camera and is in good condition. It's the camera all my nudes were shot on, so it's been trained to take lovely nudes!
I am including 3 batteries (usually about $100 each) with the camera and a charger. The charger also has a cord that enables you to power it from a wall socket in case you have the bizarre circumstance of 3 dead batteries. Hasn't happened to me in 35 years of shooting - but I'm big on having backups for my backups.
I am asking $1400. for all of it. PLUS, I will throw in a GoPro Hero camera with a lexan housing. It's a cute little camera. [link]
Oddly, I am a bit picky who I sell my cameras to because I want the new owner to love them, use them, and appreciate their history. It may sound silly, but I love my cameras!
I'll include shipping but would prefer the buyer come to my studio to pick up the cameras unless you simply live too far away.
Of course, they come with owners manuals.
All serious inquiries just be emailed to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Obviously, first come, first serve. I already have two people interested in the 7D but aren't committed
so cash talks, folks. No checks please.
Off I go to sit on my patio
it's "beer thirty" here in LA!
UPDATE: Both cameras are sold. WOW....they went quickly!!
