Have some equipment you do not use? Why not help another Wikimedian with an upgrade via a donation?

Equipment exchange is a forum where media contributors to Wikimedia Foundation projects can request, donate, sell, or barter equipment for the production of free content, including camera equipment, computer equipment, art supplies, and software. Equipment is not restricted to be solely or indefinitely used for free content production, but this should be one of its major uses. List items with one of the following prefixes:

  • WTB: A request for an item needed to produce free content.
  • Donation: An item being offered for free.
  • For sale: An item being sold at reduced cost compared to general market prices.
  • Volts/Hz: Some cameras may have adapters that will work in any country. Enter this in first post to save queries on it.

Offers should describe the purpose that the equipment will be used for, and any current equipment the offerer has. Offers may offer a lower amount, or offer another item in trade. Donators/sellers may review the contribution history of offerers to select an offer.

Exchange of payment information (e.g. Paypal account names) or mailing addresses should proceed through the Special:Emailuser function. For this reason you should have an e-mail configured in your user preferences. If you don't wish to reveal your e-mail, consider creating a temporary account at a free e-mail provider. All exchanges are at own risk and Wikimedia Commons receives no portion of proceeds and provides no protection from malicious parties or management of disputes.

There is a Grants Proposal (relevant to this page) to fund cameras for Commons photographers here.

  • WB: I shoot a lot of basketball games for wikipedia. Sometimes I do so from the upper levels near where the television cameras are and other times I am right on the baseline. I need a better lens for baseline situations. I would be able to shoot basketball for wikipedia better if I could afford the Canon EF 24–70 mm f/2.8L II or EF 24–70 mm f/2.8L lens.--TonyTheTiger (talk) 21:37, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Selling a EIZO colour LCD monitor (21,3 inch)[edit]

Ich verkaufe aufgrund von Umstieg auf einen neuen 27-Zoll-Eizo-Monitor meinen alten EIZO S2100 FlexScan LCD Farbmonitor.

Der Monitor wurde mehrere Jahre gebraucht, ist aber sowohl technisch wie äußerlich noch in einem erstklassigem Zustand. Es gibt weder Pixelfehler noch eine ungleichmäßige Ausleuchtung noch weitere mir bekannte Mängel. Das Gerät ist nach wie vor für erstklassige Bildbearbeitung geeignet und sollte noch einige Jahre treue Dienste tun.

Der Monitor ist auch besonders für Bildbearbeitung ausgelegt, hat eine hohe Farbtreue und hervorragende Bildqualität. Dafür ist er allerdings nur bedingt zum Spielen von schnellen Actiongames ausgelegt. Dazu kann ich allerdings aus eigener Erfahrung nichts sagen, da ich das nicht mache. Videowiedergabe (DVD etc.) ist allerdings ebenfalls tadellos und ohne ruckeln möglich. In Fachkreisen wird der Monitor wegen seiner Qualität und Langlebigkeit nicht zu unrecht sehr gelobt.

Der Monitor verfügt über einen stabilen, höhenverstellbaren Standfuß und ist auch im Hochformat verwendbar (da drehbar).

Die wichtigsten technischen Daten sind: (vollständiges Datenblatt des Herstellers)

  • 21,3-Zoll = 54 cm (Format: 4:3), maximale Auflösung: 1600x1200 Pixel
  • Farbe: mattschwarz
  • Helligkeit 300 cd/qm, Kontrast 1000:1, 178° Blickwinkel, automatische Helligkeitssteuerung
  • DVI-I- und DSub-Eingang für Digital- und Analog-Anschluss
  • Typische Reaktionszeit: 8ms
  • Max. Leistungsaufnahme: 70 Watt, Gewicht: 9,7 kg (mit Standfuß)

Bei Interesse und Preisanfrage gerne an mich melden. Selbstabholung oder wahlweise kostenpflichtiger Versand innerhalb Deutschlands möglich. --Wladyslaw (talk) 07:08, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Due to change to a new 27-inch Eizo I am selling my used Eizo FlexScan S2100 EIZO colour monitor. The monitor was used for several years, but is both technically and outwardly still in excellent condition. There is no pixel error or uneven illumination or further defects known to me. This device is still suitable for superior image processing and should do a few more years of loyal service.

The monitor is especially designed for image processing, has a high color fidelity and excellent image quality. But he is, however, only partially designed to play fast-action games. All I can say from personal experience but nothing since I do not do that. Video playback (DVD, etc.) is also perfectly possible and without stutter. In professional circles, the monitor is rightly praised for its quality and durability.

The monitor has a solid, height-adjustable stand and is also usable in portrait mode (as rotatable).

The main specifications are: (full manufacturer's data sheet)

  • 21.3-inch = 54 cm (Format: 4: 3) Maximum resolution: 1600x1200 pixels
  • Color: matte black
  • Brightness 300 cd / m², Contrast Ratio 1000: 1, 178 ° viewing angle, automatic brightness control
  • DVI-I and D-Sub inputs for digital and analogue connections
  • Typical Response Time: 8ms
  • Max. Power Consumption: 70 watts, Weight 9.7 kg (with stand)

Like to contact my for more information. Pickup or optional shipping with costs within Germany available. For shipping in EU countries please ask me. --Wladyslaw (talk) 05:29, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Offer: Two M42 mount Telezoom lenses[edit]

the Exacta lens

I'm about to throw them into the bay, but I thought I'd ask here first. I've got two M42 mount telezoom lenses:

  • Exakta 70-210mm F4.5-5.6 (the first four images in Category:Exakta zoom lenses are of this very lens)
  • RMC Tokina 100-300mm F5.6 (pictures to follow)

Picture quality is of course not as good as with modern zoom lenses, but they are both in good to very good condition. If I could get a few bucks for them, they would directly go into my photo gear budget. I'd also consider a trade-off for M42 or K-mount primes or possibly film bodies. Also, if you've got a 28-135(-ish)mm K-mount autofocus zoom you don't need, I might be interested (independently from this offer).

If you're interested, just give me a ping and I'll give you more detailed information about the lenses – otherwise they're going to ebay. Cheers, --El Grafo (talk) 13:52, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
