An Arca-Swiss 4x5 owned and used by Ansel Adams for four years in the 1960s and then given as a gift to his young Belgian friend Liliane de Cock is being auctioned off by Heritage Auctions. Starting bid is $35,000 and it's expected to sell for between $70k and $100k. Nice museum piece! I'm always happy to see old equipment preserved for posterity.
