For Sale: SEITZ 6X17, 160 Megapixel Digital Panoramic Camera Kit.

Seitz 6×17, 160 megapixel Digital Panoramic Camera kit with D3 – 7,500 scan back (7.500 x 21.250 pixel images).

Cost £20,000 (+/- US $30,000) which represents 50% of new value.

Mint condition except minimal W&T on body frame. 90mm & 250mm Lens, Center Filter, 2 Spare Batteries & Chargers all in Waterproof Explorer Case. Lenses and Scan Back in absolute mint condition, no dust or anything. The D3 Scan back can be used on the Seitz Roundshot for 360 degree images.

Reason for sale is while the images are beautiful, there are 3 main reasons.

1. I want to take pictures ‘away from the car’, ie, you can-not take camping equipment with the Seitz equipment as it is just too heavy and bulky.

2. At 52 my knees seem to be getting ‘dodgy’ ie I can start feeling them getting painful if I carry heavy weights, especially up hill. (Weakest link in the chain as it were!).

3. I am getting more into workshops where Nikons etc are more suitable or relevant.

So when I look at the overall picture, I can find a smaller lighter camera, save my knees and not really loose any market in terms of print sales. Indeed the change would free me from the restriction of having just a 90mm and 250mm lens and allow me to shoot in more remote locations with a greater lens choice.

About David Osborn

Born 1961, London. David gained a First Class BA (Hons) in Graphic Design from Camberwell School of Art, London. However, he was more suited to photography and spent the last two thirds of the degree course, teaching himself photography. On leaving university he spent a year part time with Shell Oil, before joining Reuter News Pictures in London as a photographer for three years. He also worked for AP, AFP and all major British national newspapers and a great many USA and foreign newspapers. He then worked in Asia for nine months as a photo journalist. News photography is the best education to think pictures naturally and understand their narrative role instinctively. After working in Asia, David lived in Sydney, Australia for ten years where he ran his own commercial studio. At this time he began work on annual reports and worked mainly in the electronics industry for Nortel, Alcatel and GEC and general industrial photography. Commercial work was a great education in the more technical side of photography in terms of lighting locations and greater technical quality. On returning to London in 2000, he began work with BAA which culminated in a three year project to document the construction of Heathrow's Terminal 5 building. He then covered the construction of One Hyde Park in London, the world's most expensive apartments.
