Round 2 with our enterprising Bauer salesman:

I sent a note asking how much of a discount I could get off the $2900 projector if I don't take the original brand-name cardboard box. Let's see if he is willing to bargain [Big Grin]

(I also reported him to EBay for gross pricing violations.)

100 frames, so that's $3.75 a frame assuming the opening bid holds. What a deal! "Disneyanna" indeed....

Yep, let's whip up a bowl full of popcorn and watch that huge blockbuster, "Bacteria in Food." Yum!!

Or how about this bargain, a mint unopened Disney treat (does anyone care that it's silent, the color is probably gone, and that it's only 2 minutes' worth...)
Such a deal!

Hmmm... why do you think this one didn't sell? Maybe the $8 handling fee. 3 inch reels? Silent but some parts have sound?
Check this one out. Actually, if those had sound and some color left, they'd be pretty cool.

Oh boy.....

If he feels $4000 is appropriate for this Super-8 print, the seller is definitely 'not in Kansas' anymore.

If you were REALLY nuts about 'Oz' perhaps a Technicolor, mint 16mm of this could cause someone to empty their bank account. Well, it is now where it should be: on 'funny EBay links' [Big Grin] [Wink]

Mark, that link is bringing up a Hawaii surf reel, not Marlon Brando.

RE Wizard of Oz: check out the seller's baloney about authenticity (it's Niles we're talking about!!!! Negs made from the worst 16mm sources imaginable, even scratched -- I have a Superman cartoon where source film had the introduction spliced onto the END. Niles!!!). He says this:
quote:
NOTE: It is known that MANY films (8 & 16mm) ARE NOT original, but copies. Anyone can go to your local film duplicator store and pay them to make a duplicate of any film print, to another 8 or 16mm film print! Ensure when you purchase films, that they have the original box or from a reputable dealer. If they do not offer them or papers, more then likely you are purchasing a copy of the film and not that of original stock footage. A local store near me continually makes copies of the same thing and collectors are continually buying them at top price, so these also are bootleged...

Yep, gotta watch those lecherous Super 8 bootleggers just down the street!

By the way, he has 2 offers, naturally declined. It would be humorous if those were actually a decent price ($100).

I'm spoiled. Here in LA you have your choice of labs with same day in-and-out service and NO image variations due to hand processing.

Addicted to Super 8 wants you to pay him to experiment with your film!

I dont think it that much cheaper than the proper labs and im not sure of the quality. Bit of a risk I think.

Hand processing of film....ah yes, much like a good baker, where the loaves exhibit differences from 'the master's touch' [Eek!] [Big Grin]

I think this is one case where I will let the machine do it..

Well, here's an EXTREMELY hefty piece of Hollywood memorabilia. The listing isn't strange, per se, but it certainly is one of the more expensive and unusual film items I have seen on EBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=150295148708&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=005

Truly a storied item. If one had space and money to burn....your own VistaVision rig.

I'll be curious to see how this one ends.

Claus.

If you want quality, you have to pay for it:

He does include spare 'reals' and several 'blubs' however.

Hey, at least you don't have to make payments until 2009 if you use PayPal!

Hmmm... imagine what his price would be if the main wormgear were replaced.

Well, sanity prevailed with the beautiful Elmo Xenon:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=160285847740&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=006

Just over $1500 with shipping included. Very nice.
Was it one of us.... [Confused] [Wink]

Nobody may have won it yet. The auction says "RESERVE NOT MET".

The seller can choose not to sell to the highest bidder and relist.

Regarding the Bell and Howell auction listed above, with the $12,000 machine:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Bell-Howell-16MM-Sound-Motion-Projector_W0QQitemZ320305312375QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item320305312375&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_

I sent a quick email telling the seller that there surely must be a mistake in the pricing and that these machines were/are very common on EBay. This is what he wrote back:

(quote)
No the price is correct. Hello. I have checked with Antique dealers and projector repair shops and they said the Value of this projector is at $12,500 approx as a antique. Since this has been discontinued in 1995 this has increased the value to people who collect them for there own purposes to specialized antique dealers who sell them to Museums. This is a "antique not a commerical projector"
Thanks

(end quote)

Well then...all you B&H owners on the board, pay heed [Big Grin] You are all owners of very valuable collectables... [Eek!]
Remember, it's not a commercial projector, it's an ANTIQUE!

At 12 grand, I expect it to be driven to my door by people from Sotheby's, accompanied by champagne and flowers [Big Grin]

Claus.

What I like about this auction is that he supplies a different range of empty reels to suit all films. Dont worry if you have a 25 minute film or even a 30 or 45 minute film, rest assured you will have the correct take up reel for it. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]
