This one is priced right, but this doesn't look right. The seller is about a thousand miles away, so I will never know. It's not like I don't have the K version of this one either.

A bit of dust in there, but otherwise what doesn't look right?

It must be the Ricoh strap that seals the deal.

Of course, a 2989.01 strap on a camera worth 0.99 to somebody.
I seriously thought of offering them 0.01, just for LoLs, but there is a danger that they might accept and then I would have to pay the 3.10 postage. I doubt I'd ever get $3.10 back by trying to sell it. I have put it on my watch list though.

I offered them $10, about 13 and change. Offer was automatically declined. Looks like they're serious.

Either they changed it, or I'm missing something. When I go to the link, it's listed at 2.99.

In fact I had already commented on this item in the "Crazy Overpriced Items .. [etc]..." thread, with a screenshot of how it was :-

It seem that even a broken Pentax 110 is worth close to USD400 these days. At least it comes with all the lenses for the system (I think).

Please note the camera winder for the film is very tight and the shutter operation is affected.
The camera does not work with it's batteries inserted.
There is a loose part of the battery housing that needs repair.

Sorry - hadn't got that far yet. Mea culpa. (isn't it strange how much better 'My bad' sounds in Latin ?).

"Customised" Olympus Trip

The "customising" is what looks like scratches on the back, and also on the lens cap.
Looks like it was done by sliding around for a long time in the boot of a car.
Is this guy having a laugh, or am I missing something? Maybe Jackson Pollock owned it?

Pentax AF400T Torch Type

"Torch Type" - first time I've heard that!
QuoteQuote:
the camera has gone so and it has not been tested. Battery pack is seperate and takes AA batteries, but can be replaced if not working.
Don't they realise that you can test a flash unit even without a camera? Just short the sync plug? And what can be replaced? The whole thing?! Or just the battery holder? - but why would he think the battery holder might need replacing (leaked batteries?) and where the heck would you find one these days?

He is also selling an LX Motor Drive, but with no battery holder which is a separate itme on those things*. That motor drive is useless without one, and again, good luck finding one now.

* The LX motor drive had three alternative types of battery provision.
