I'm still trying to work out where 60" comes in. Surely that tiny tripod cannot go to five feet? And isn't that winder missing its battery compartment? 🙄

I think this one of the 'lightweight portable' tripods sold by Boots and others, with multiple telescoping leg sections, getting progressively thinner, spindlier and less rigid as they were extended - I had one once as a flash stand, but it would hardly support a Vivitar 285 ! As for an SLR - forget it !

No idea about the 'winder'.

Like new KP at a rock bottom price of USD550. Take my money please?

On second thought, don't do it. As always, the devil is in the detail, along with poor spelling and grammar.

The rear screen is dark for a good reason.

How about:

Stored in a ship's bilge for 20 years?

Put out in a sandstorm for 5 years?

Left in a coat pocket that was then washed and tumbled-dry low?

Failed hipster retro "art" project -- distressed camera meant to sit on distress-wood shelves?

This camera outbreaks well. Huh?

It seems to be the translation for très bien. According to the interwebs, it means OK.

What does "très bien" mean in French?

That sort of thing happens when a German seller post an ad in French, I suppose.

John Lennon. Imagine with* Rare Picture Sleeve. Mint | eBay

Rare picture sleeve ? Unique, I should think, in that condition. Mint must refer to the flavour.

I accidentally posted this in the "high price ebay" thread instead of this one... maybe it's a good warning in both...

I have a saved search running for the "Press Van" camera -- it's a really slick and quite unusual folder that uses an Asahi Takumar 75mm f3.5 lens.
It can also shoot either 645/6x6 on 120 or 6x6/35mm, depending on which version you get...

This one is so popular I've had three separate listings for it show up in my search results:
Press Van Asahi Kogaku Takumar 75Mm 3.5 | eBay

That one is the cheapest, at $211 for a fairly rusty camera... they go up to $279... all from Japan, all separate sellers... and one claims it's in EX++ condition (what?!)

And I can't find the listing, but there used to be a seller in Austria with one (for close to $500) that may have had the same images...

Someone tried to make their chrome KX black...

Maybe it's the prototype for that guy who does all those really expensive "rare" variants that he paints himself...
