    I have a Leitz ring light (continuous hot light) for closeup photography. Will take any best offer ($0 minimum bid) but pickup preffered, and the item is in Cambridge, MA. (This is why I posted this in regional.) (BTW If someone who wants it badly but located outside the region, I will consider shipping for this item, but shoot me with a straight-forward offer in dollar amount to make packaging and shipping worthwhile effort.) The light comes with a Leitz variac (transformer) and the ring light, its arm, but there is nothing else if you don't see it in the picture. You see in the picture that ther are two shades to add shadow. This is very handy for people who take tabletop closeup photos with tungsten light, but don't expect that the camera attachment is as easy as clip-on flash stuff. The light is big and soft for this kind of stuff. This was made for Leitz 4x5 camera to take scientific photos and the attachment is a bit different. In order to use it comfortably, you may need to figure something out at a hardware store, or better yet custom fabricate parts.
