    Default Batch Sale: 29 D1s, 15 Lenses and More

    Hello All,

    My company, SPH, is disposing a variety of photographic equipment in batches as follows:

    Batch 1: Cameras & Accessories
    29 pcs Nikon D1 Bodies (1999/2000)
    7 pcs AFS 80-200/f2.8 (1999/2000/Undated)
    8 pcs AFS 35-70/f2.8 (1999/2000/Undated)
    8 pcs SB28DX (Undated)
    2 pcs SB26 (Undated)
    4pcs SB28 Battery Pack (Undated)

    Pic 1: Cameras


    Pic 2: Lenses


    Pic 3: Flash Units



    Batch 2: Studio Equipment (All 1983)
    1 pc Bowens Quad-Matic 1.5k Rapid
    1 pc Bowens Power Pack Quadmatic 3ka
    1 pc Systems 900 compact flash monolight
    1 pc Systems 1200 compact flash monolight
    1 pc Systems 1200 compact flash
    2 pcs Softbox
    3 pcs Snoot Reflector
    2 pcs Honeycomb Box
    5 pcs Large Round Reflector
    2 pcs Small Round Reflector

    Pic 4:Studio Equipment



    The equipment was previously issued to SPH photographers. There is likely to be a range in the kind of condition that they are in, and my subjective evaluation is that they range from 1-5 in CS terms (they've "travelled the globe"). I'm told most are in working condition but a few are spoilt. But the sale is in batch mode - name a price and take all if you win the bid.

    People who want spare bodies or just spare parts may be interested in them, and we're opening the sale up to CS forum, along with our usual disposal vendors and staff.

    Here are some details in case you are interested:

    1. The items for batch sale can be viewed at SPH News Centre, 1000 Toa Payoh North at the following times:

    Tuesday 21 June 2005 (10 am – 5 pm)
    Wednesday 22 June 2005 (10 am – 5 pm)

    Please call Yan Peng Kong (ext 1020) from SPH reception when you arrive.


    2. Bids are to be made in the relevant bid forms, available when the items are viewed.


    3. SPH is not obliged to sell to the highest bidder. Goods are sold in an “as is’’ condition and once sold, are not returnable for refunds.


    4. Mode of payment : CASH only


    5. Closing date : 23 June 2005


    Hope this info is useful.

    I think maybe a few CS members can group together to buy the whole batch, not easy for 1 member to take the whole batch....

    hi! when u say batch, it means any potential bidder needs to buy the WHOLE lot? ie - we can walk in and place a bid for 1 d1, rite?

    Hi all,

    As this is a batch disposal sale, there is no individual item price. There is also no estimated price. I've put the year of purchase as an indication of how old/valuable (or value-less) the items are.

    Basically you come and see (no trying as it is an "as is" sale) and fill out a form stating your bid-price for Batch 1 and/or Batch 2 and hand it in, in an envelope, or post it back.

    On Closing Date, company reps will open envelopes and probably there'll be a "winning" bid. The buyer will then be contacted to come and pay up and collect ALL the items in the batch he/she has successfully bidded for.

    Hope this clarifies the queries so far.

    Thats why we may need to gather a few interested fellows for a "group buy".
    And, I think, if this is considered as "fire sale", "as is sale" the price can be very cheap, maybe 20% of market price?

    astin has a point. those of us (me included!!) can try to pool together resources to place a bid.

    however, from the pics, whoever wins need to spend a bit of money to refurbish/repair the equipment. i believe i spotted spider webs on one of the 80-200mm.... small price to pay (IMO) for a d1...

    haha... from kegler's rough estimate, figure u need to find ard 30 chaps who are willing to contribute anywhere ard $1k each to participate. from the way the stuff is being packaged by SPH, i guess its meant to discourage small bidders. sigh...
