I have tried the concept out before. Didn’t actually make any exposures on light sensitive material, or draw a tracing of the projected scene.

Fascinating process.

Some people thought there was some trickery involved with getting an image of the outside world inside the house.

Broken Elderly Little Flashgun

The foot is broken, but it's OK - they fixed it with a kludge involving an extra adaptor.
It is an ancient manual only unit with a single low power setting, and I'm fairly sure it has a high trigger voltage you wouldn't want on a modern camera. But they seem to think 7 (plus postage) is a fair price. Actually there are others in good condition for less on the same Ebay page of search results when I looked.

Not only that, it is apparently a zoom lens(es). And legendary, which should mean it does not actually exist.

Recent eBay auction for a Spotmatic w/Tak 55/1.8.

Starting bird was $99 and the description said "Look at the pictures for detail".

Sometimes it's so bad it has to be deliberate. No one could be that incompetent or careless and survive past 10 years old.

The pictures...

The only detail I can glean from the images is that his carpet needs cleaning.

Manual Love Machine

99 for this basic tiny flash unit? As well as that "braket", it must have some hidden capabilities :

The usual - if it's old, it must be worth money. Same with the rest of the junk for sale. Hope he spends the money on a dictionary.

Don't know much about it, but done (typo?) his research.

Knows what it's worth, but doesn't list an real price.

Wants you to make an offer, but no low balls on his Schrodinger info based lens.

Any lens looks huge on an MX, especially if the photo is taken like that with a wide angle lens, close to the front. That MX looks good except the self-timer lever looks broken - flopping around? The lens is the budget Takumar, not worth much these days. However, who knows how the bidding will go? Things are selling so slowly on Ebay at present (don't I know it?) that you could win with 9.99.
