Ruby Macandrew Reporter from The Wellingtonian

A glistening, sugar-based sculpture by Wellington-based artist Jasmine Togo-Brisby is set to bring the dark history of sugar-slavery to the fore. The large-scale work, which goes on display at City Gallery Wellington later this week, features a pile of skulls cast in unrefined sugar.

Blackmagic 4K Production Camera PL body plus lens plus SSD card for sale in Wellington for NZ$2,800.

FREE shipping. I can ship to anywhere in NZ and the item will be packed and shipped by a professional packing company to allow for safe transport of this very expensive camera. Please allow a day or two once the auction ends for the shipping company to pack and parcel the goods for shipment.


Camera is in excellent condition. It was bought off an Auckland TradeMe user in December last year and while I've owned it, it has been used on a couple of test shoots and on a local short film a month ago.

The reason I'm selling this camera is because I can't afford PL lenses, so am wanting to purchase the EF mount Production Camera instead.

There are scuff marks where the bolts are on the top of the camera where a Tilta Cage was screwed on previously, these are the only signs of wear.

The sale is the body plus a Lomo f2.6 28mm lens, power supply and a 250GB SSD card. External batteries and a rig and not included, although the camera has an internal battery.

The Lomo 28mm lens was purchased on Ebay for NZ$500 in February this year. If you adjust for the crop factor, the Lomo lens has a view of 47mm.

If you can afford and have access to PL lenses, this is a great cinema camera to own. It is not a DSLR or run and gun camera (GH5 etc), so it requires a responsible and patient owner and someone willing to invest in other accessories (rigs etc).

POSTAGE METHOD: FREE shipping in NZ, or, if you live in Wellington, you can pick up from my house.

$2,800
