    Someone donated a couple of items to my school program. I need to find out what they are and how much they are worth. I would like to sell them to purchase other supplies that I can use. Thanks

    There is nothing makeshift about the support. The whole oufit is a heavy duty dolly for use in the studio. The 3047 head will happily support medium format and large format cameras. The arm is counterbalanced and is easily adjusted up and down the centre column; it can also be moved horizontally. There are probably three wheels at the based for moving it around the studio floor and you should be able to lock these for maximum stability. The whole set up will give absolutely rock solid support for just about any camera you can fit on it. I can't give you a valuation for it, but this is a serious piece of professional quality equipment that probably cost several hundreds of dollars new.

    I'd call that a camera stand or a studio stand rather than a dolly. Look for a Manfrotto nameplate and a number, or other manufacturer's nameplate. It looks like a Manfrotto to me, a Salon or a Super Salon maybe. New those are almost $2000 if complete with the tray for holding bits and pieces.

    Good luck,
    Helen

    Does anyone know of a place that I could contact so I can find out exactly what these items are? I did find out that one of the items is a Bogen Manfrotto 3047. The video dolly or tripod dolly's only tag says that it was made in Holland ( No. s 0849). Thanks

    That suggests that it is a Cambo studio stand - go to http://www.cambo.com/ and look under Photo Products > Studio Stands, or you could go to www.calumetphoto.com which also shows prices. Search on 'cambo stand'. It may not be a current product, however.

    Good luck,
    Helen

    Thanks for the info.

    I found the base on http://www.calumetphoto.com/item/CB2300/

    I can't find the actual pole or arm setup. They have a double arm one: http://www.calumetphoto.com/item/CB2364K/ , but not a single arm. I didn't realize these things were so expensive.

    Anyone have a good estimate of how much I should ask for a used setup? I know that a brand new double arm one goes for $3,600. I just don't want to get ripped off. Thanks
