MANFROTTO L-SHAPED CAMERA BRACKET

FOR TRIPODS

 

Invaluable for quickly changing from landscape to portrait format when your camera is mounted on a tripod.

The quick-release on the Manfrotto tripod allows you to remove and remount in the alternative format within seconds.

This metal bracket is extremely sturdy and well made.

It holds the camera firmly in either position.

Just screw the bracket into the base of the camera, and away you go.

 

This bracket gets away from the difficult fiddle of turning the tripod head from the horizontal position to the vertical.

 

Sturdy and stable.

I wouldn't want to be without it!

Made to last a life-time.

Save pounds over the cost when new.

 

Manfrotto 055C Tripod

with Manfrotto 029 head

 

One of the most sturdy camera tripods that money can buy.

I obtained this tripod especially for landscape photography, where ground conditions or the wind could cause instability.

I need not have feared - this tripod has seen me safely through every situation.

Now that I am beyond carrying all the weight that goes with a fully-equipped landscape photographer I am reluctantly giving up this great piece of equipment.

Despite my use, the tripod showed little sign or wear, though a small amount of veneer has come off the head.

The leg action is smooth and firm.

The 029 head with its 3 control movements provides precise settings, aided by the built-in spirit level.

There is no camera clamp - you will want to choose your own from the many and varied ones that are available on eBay.

 

This sturdy tripod will provide you with a stable, motionless base from which to take images of landscape, lands, gardens, buildings, or whatever your taste in photography.

A great tripod at a fraction of the price of a new one.

CANON FD 75-200mm f4.5 MACRO MANUAL FOCUS ZOOM LENS

FOR CANON OR FUJI X-SERIES

 

 

The optics are superb, no damage, no fungus, no scratches. Clear and bright.

The lens body is in lovely condition though the original gold PASSED sticker is missing.

Aperture and focus ring work fine. Push/pull zoom works fine and smooth.

Complete with front protective cap.

 

DOUBLE ADVANTAGE

This popular canon lens has been fitted with a converter that allows it to be used either on a Canon that takes FD lenses (without the converter) or the Fujifilm X-Series (with the converter).

When fitted to the Fuji it has to be treated as an entirely manual system - though fitting an FD lens to a mirrorless camera has given the FD lens a completely new lease of life.

The reason for the popularity of this lens is that it:

PROVIDES GOOD QUALITY OPTICS FOR A COMPARATIVELY LOW PRICE

This lens is already fitted with the adapter that will allow you to mount it directly to a Fujifilm X series camera. This adapter therefore gives you a zoom lens with a very useful telephoto range that you can use on your Fuji X-series at a fraction of the cost of a Fuji lens.

 

I have tested it out on my Fuji X-T1 and got some nice sharp images.

Strongly recommended as a viable alternative to more expensive lenses - and it is a fraction of the price.

DA VINCI HIGH QUALITY FIBRE GLOSS

PHOTO PRINTING PAPER 50 SHEETS

 

High quality photo image printing paper for inkjet printer.

Surplus to my current requirements.

 

Never opened - box intact as it was when originally supplied.

This quality paper is offered at a fraction of the original cost.

 

Old vintage camera Ensign "All Distance twenty"

box camera 1920's

 

With a little restoration this camera could become a fine example of its kind.

The original carrying strap on top of the camera is still intact.

All moving parts appear to be in good working order.

 

This was my mother's camera, and I still look at the pictures that she took with it.

 

ADAPTER FOR MOUNTING A CANON FD LENS

TO A FUJIFILM X-SERIES CAMERA.

 

One of the hardest things about changing camera manufacturer is giving up lens you already possess and moving into a completely new system.

 

If you have a Canon that takes FD-mount lenses and you want to change to a Fujifilm X-series camera

(such as the T-1 or T-2) then this adapter will allow you to use those Canon lenses on your new Fuji.

 

In the process you loose some of the automatic features that come with Fuji system lenses, but you save a great deal of money.

Attaching the adapter is easy, and once attached can be kept either on the camera or, better still, attached to your lens. Because it is a manual adapter you need to use it with your camera in the manual mode.

For example, this requires you to focus manually.

 

The third image shown above is a view of an adapter fitted to a Canon FD zoom lens.

 

Another alternative route to cheaper quality lenses is to buy second-hand Canon FD lenses

and attach this adapter to them.

That way you can save a great deal of money - just by getting this adapter!

The reason for the popularity of the FD lenses is that they:

PROVIDE GOOD QUALITY OPTICS FOR COMPARATIVELY LOW PRICES.

 

This particular lens is a good clean example, and I have tested it out on my Fuji X-T1 and got some nice sharp images.

Strongly recommended as a viable alternative to more expensive lenses.

Much lower cost than the nearest Fuji equivalent.

 

CANON FD 70-150mm f4.5 Lens

WITH ADAPTER TO FIT FUJI X-SERIES

 

This popular canon lens has been fitted with a converter that allows it to be used either on a Canon that takes FD lenses (without the converter) or the Fujifilm X-Series (with the converter).

 

When fitted to the Fuji it has to be treated as an entirely manual system - though fitting an FD lens to a mirrorless camera has given the FD lens a completely new lease of life.
