    Has anyone used or have heard of this reseller? If so, have you had a positive experience?

    Thanks!

    Bruce's Field Camera Store

    He advertises in _View Camera_ magazine. I know someone who has been down to his studio (he sells out of his studio, not a regular retail store), and he apparently sells a surprising number of cameras. I haven't bought from him myself, but from what I've heard, he's legit.

    His prices are on the high side. He does however send out very clean and adjusted equipment. Shutters are CLA, etc. Which is often times worth paying a little more for, i.e. Midwest Photo than some of the eBay crapshoots.

    Thanks guys. He says that he sells the Linhofs at the lowest prices in the US. Just wondering whether he's legit. Thanks David and Leonard.

    You might want to double-check with Bob Salomon of HP Marketing about the warranty and service status of the Linhof merchandise that Bruce is selling. If you read carefully his postings for Rodenstock lenses, he appears to be selling gray import. Since both Rodenstock and Linhof are imported to the US by HP Marketing, it does at least raise a question.

    And just to make it VERY clear - if it is a gray import, HP Marketing will not do any repairs on the camera - no matter where you bought it from. If you want to buy a new Linhof, you'll have to buy it at an official Linhof importer. THey are very iffy on that subject.

    She's in Canada, no, just to make matters more complicated? Who does official Linhof service in Canada, and what are their policies?

    Purchased a couple of Wisner lens boards from him. No problems - even with refunding the Paypal double pay. If I am not mistaken, I believe that I called him in New York city or somewhere in the general vicinity.

    Surely someone else will chime in. He has feedback on that auction site.

    Cheers!

    I can confirm Bruce did sell excellent quality used and new gear to me and gave very good service. Some of the products I have purchased from him have included Ebony accessories, back issues of B & W magazine, and Wisner lensboards for my 5x7" and more. I have made three different purchases from him via eBay auctions and found shipping to be quick. I did not purchase my Ebony SV45U or Wisner Tech from him, but I would not hesitate to purchase from him again. Hope that helps.
