Hello all
I'm getting this NPR package next year... I'm really exited about it , since it will be my first own film cam, ( I had some super 8 cams and I did work in pretty much every fomat out there but this one will allow me to do my own serious projects on film, since I love it )

Any ways the whole mpackage is going for 6500
I want it to see what you think

Also I been reading all the forums in here and it seams the NPR has a great following do you gus have any samples of work that you have done with it ?

Here is the Package

Number Item Quantity

1 Lens Angenieux 12-240mm 1
2 Lens 5.9mm #06433-7075-121001 w/ gears for uw use + 85 and UR pro filters, C-mount. 1

There was a great documentary made here in San Francisco called "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill". It was all shot using the Eclair NPR.

Its worth checking out if you are interested

No advice really. The NPR is a nice camera for the money... steady images.

Is that serial number correct - #10162? If so, that's the highest number I've seen (previously had only seen numbers up to 98XX).

The lenses you list are not so hot, but the package seems to have a number of nice items. Do you happen to know what's included in the spare parts kit? Does that mean the camera's internal parts?
