On a recent journey to the back of the cupboard I found a number of photographic items I no longer require. If you’re interested let me (Steven) know, either at the club or by sending me a message (click here).
Canon EOS-5 35MM camera body
Fancy going old skool? Hanker for the quality you can only achieve from shooting film? Then pop some Velvia 100 in this Canon 5 and take a trip back to the 1990s. It’s in great condition and includes a working battery. With a Canon EF lens mount you’ll be able to use your current lenses too. It’s only flaw is it’s not a Nikon. Price – £20
Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM – Canon fit
Super sharp, super fast and super forgot about at the back of the cupboard. Not been used for maybe 5 years. I used it for shooting panoramic shots as it captures lots of detail, ideal for low-light conditions too. Great condition. Price £140
[SOLD] Iiyama Prolite 82403WS 24” HD monitor
Features: resolution 1920 x 1200, aspect ratio 16:10, VGA and HDMI connections and 2 x 2w speakers. Recent news to me, it also rotates 90 degrees! not sure why, perhaps so you can still watch it while lying on the sofa. Price £20
[SOLD] Manfrotto 190XPROB Tripod (no head)
Like its owner it’s starting to show signs of wear, but still works fine. Has a horizontal centre column feature, good for table top photography. There’s an overview video on YouTube, click to view. Price £30
Sto-Fen Omni Bounce
Flash diffuser for Canon Speedlight 430EX and 430EXii. Price £5
[SOLD] Wacom Graphics Tablet PTZ 630
A5 tablet with stylus that connects via USB. It’s easier to retouch photos using a tablet than with a mouse. Drivers should be available to download from Wacom website. The button on the stylus is broken, hence the Sellotape, but that button isn’t critical to its usability (it’s never worked since I’ve owned it). Price £5
[SOLD] Wacom Graphics Tablet Bamboo MTE-450A
A6 tablet with stylus, as above minus the Sellotape and broken button. Review on YouTube – click here. Price £10
[SOLD] LaCie external hard drive – 320GB, Firewire 800/400 and USB 2 connections.
Includes power supply. I won’t drive a hard bargain on this hard drive. Price £5
All prices include free delivery to the Thomas Cook Hall.
