Most of this equipment is still available; they also have a large number of open reel video tapes. They are looking for offers. They're planning on selling the house this spring and it all has to go somewhere. Please let me know and I'll give you the phone number.

Is any of that tape 1/2" tape on 7" spools (ie EIAJ format)? I don't think the equipment will be worth shipping for me, but a box of tapes could be.

I haven't seen any tape that size (I haven't measured it but it's the wider stuff) but that doesn't mean he doesn't have it. My friend was an avid collector/restorer of types of tape equipment. The next time I talk to his father I'll quiz him.

Knowing the people, would you say that they're looking at market price, below market price, or stupidly cheap?

I'd be interested in the Ikegami cameras, but not at $200 each or something like that.

I've tried to get some figures out of him; my best guess would be somewhere between "below market" and "stupidly cheap". I'll give him a call and see if I can get a real price on those.

The equipment is all oldish (mostly 80's) broadcast equipment. It is generally pretty sophisticated and the parts are scarce. The equipment has little value since there is zero demand for this stuff.

I have been a broadcast engineer for more than thirty years and remember having to deal with much of this stuff. I have little fondness for this equipment and would be happy for it to RIP.

You should not expect to pay much or anything for most of it and the cost should be mostly the transportation to haul it away and store it.

I had a conversation with them tonight, there is some 1/2" video tape, & they are going to get back with me on that and what they can do with the Ikegami cameras.

I have become strongly interested in the Sony SLO-1800 after finding this: http://www.mrbetamax.com/SLO-1800SecondPage.htm I've been wanting a superbeta-HiFi for years, and a pro-grade unit would be awesome. Price, condition(+head hours meter reading), and willingness/cost to ship are what I wish t know about it.

Could the PCM-1 be one of these?: http://www.thevintageknob.org/sony-PCM-1.html If it is the same questions above also apply.

Any updates on the stuff I inquired about in my previous post (I don't see any pictures of it)?

Seeing those pictures I'd be interested in that Sony DAT tape deck, and maybe a Betacam deck with some tapes, depending on what the price would be.

That stuff looks fairly well kept. If only I were local...I could stop by and make offers on a lot more stuff that would be impractical to buy and transport here.

Seeing that early computer gear is making me think of a friend of mine who is into that stuff...I should probably send him a link to this thread, come to think of it.

Tom, I do have the open reel tapes we talked about. I need to get them properly boxed and then will contact you with a total. Still no luck on the equipment you asked about, though it could still turn up.

Expect prices to be quite reasonable. Shipping is likely to be the biggest kicker. Anyone out there in the MD/DC/VA/WV area that is going to the convention and could take some things along?

Thanks for the update. If you can't get this stuff in a vehicle headed to the ETF then don't bother with the betacam stuff.

All I have left to spend until my tax refund comes is about 100$ so when you know what it will cost please let me know the cost/confirm it is within my budget before dropping it in the mail.

You might want to post your request for someone to ferry stuff to the ETF to the following thread as well. http://videokarma.org/showthread.php?t=263879&page=2

Chaz, it should be. Did you happen to notice it in the photos? (I'm sure you'd know it by sight much better than I!)
