  1. I thought those of you who knew Bill might want to take a look at this. We planned it to go live on his June 7th birthday. His photos are included, in memoriam: Virtual Photography Exhibition Celebrating the Work of the Students and Alumni of the Long Island University, Brooklyn, Media Arts Dept. Sponsored by the William F. DiPietra Foundation https://www.wfdfound.com/photography-exhibition
  2. Price reduced to $600 or best offer. Free shipping and/or free local pickup in Howard Beach, NY.
  3. Like-new condition; $700 (Free shipping or free local pickup (Howard Beach, NY)
  4. Bill's beloved Steenbeck was picked up by Paul Tomasko this past weekend. We all agreed that Bill would want it to go to someone who would make use of it...another 16mm filmmaker. I just felt that Bill would want me to post a picture of it here...not sure why. Maybe because he was always proud to have his own Steenbeck or because he had so many friends here. Thanks, Helen
  5. 150 16mm 2-inch film cores: $50 + $7.00 shipping (Local pickup in Queens, NY available)
  6. This tripod was purchased used by Bill DiPietra shortly before he passed away so he never used it. The tripod looks to be in very good condition; the hard case shows signs of wear. (I believe the tripod was shipped to him in the hard case only, with no additional packaging.) The cost will be $2500 (quite a bit less than Bill paid for it) with local pickup here in Howard Beach (Queens), NY. Thank you.
  7. Hello everyone. I'm selling my son's (Bill DiPietra) almost brand new Arrilite case. It was only used once. The eBay item # is 233488707316. Local pickup only, Queens, New York City. Proceeds from the sale of his film equipment will go to his charitable foundation (wfdfound.com). Thank you.
  8. I just wanted to let those who were interested know that Bill's Optar Illumina lens set was sold today. Thanks for the assistance and information on the lenses. I also found a future home for his Steenbeck. It will be a sad day when it goes. Helen
  9. Did I say new? I don't believe they are. Bill purchased them from a cinematographer who posts here on these boards. I have the documentation for that sale (2016) but the lenses are not mentioned as used or new. To my untrained eye they look like "nice" lenses. The price is negotiable, I have photos of the lenses. I want to be fair. Thanks to all who are assisting me.
  10. As a further clarification, a lens technician has told me that Optar lenses are “excellent lenses, similar in speed and quality to Zeiss S16 Super Speeds”.
  11. Please note, these are OPTAR Illumina lenses...my error.
