"Built in the latter years of 9.5mm cine film, it runs flawlessly and smoothly so it will tear your film to shreds" X-D

Is it just me or would a chap have to be off his rocker to pay £390 for a working Gem, I'd have thought the starting price of £160 would be about tops, please correct me if I'm wrong though.

This would be worth having on the shelf, just for the name:

Well, it DOES reveal all as the film progresses, so perhaps not entirely inappropriate [Big Grin]
(The word means 'sun' or 'eye of the day' in Malay, so hey...why not.)

It is Indonesian word and as an Indonesian I can confirm that Matahari means "Sun", but Matahari (or sometimes written Mata Hari) is also known as a code name of WWI spy agent. It was filmed at least by:

Mata Hari (1985) by Sylvia Kristel

and

Mata Hari (1931) by Greta Garbo

Here's one that is going to be hard to pass up at $1,000.00:

I guess the seller figures the rust is an added bonus.

You aren't speaking eBay. Rust is an authentic patina. I think that seller also has some wire 35mm reels for like $250 which is a good price considering they come from Hollywood!!! And held such great titles as: [IMDB Top 100] ctrl+a ctrl+c ctrl+v.

While the stills look dreadful coming off a small editor, that film actually could be interesting for someone who collects American holiday/celebration-type footage.
However, at that head-spinning opening price, the best thing that can be said for the seller is that at least he still had enough sanity left to put in the "Make Offer" option.. [Wink]

He uses "Spoon Feeder" Auction software, so he is aiming at either buyers under 1 year old , or those unfortunately suffering from advanced dementia.

Not a 'film' listing per se, but unusual:
Did anybody know our old friends Eumig made high-end hi-fi in addition to projectors? I didn't.

http://cgi.ebay.com/VERY-RARE-Eumig-FL-1000uP-Pro-Cassette-Deck-Audiophile_W0QQitemZ230401479595QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item35a4ff93ab

That is one beastly-looking cassette deck, up there with the big Nakamichis. Beastly price too, but just for once, the description of 'very rare' may be accurate.
"Eumig cassette deck" just sounds funny..... [Big Grin]

Tony, [Big Grin]
I saw that one. Nice enough looking machine, but steep price for being the older 1-track model.
Do note: "KNOWLEDGED ABOUT THIS KIND OF PRODUCT IS CERO", however, it "does work nice in ANY direction." Maybe that's why it's so expensive; mine only goes in forward and reverse.... [Roll Eyes]

Well, nothing 'funny' about this one; actually 'dead serious' is more like it, especially the price [Eek!]

Fresh from Frankenstein's lab:

http://cgi.ebay.de/ ELMO-SC-30-Super-8-Filmprojektor-wie-GS-1200-Obj-1-1_W0QQitemZ190356648610QQcmdZViewItemQQptZFilmkameras_projektoren?hash=item2c5223f2a2

Elmo SC30. I can't say I have ever seen this one. The screen end and box remind me of the self-contained Elmo slide projector units we used to use in A/V work.

Seller says: "Electronic controls like the GS1200" and he offers to modify it for stepless speed control.
Big built-in screen...very unusual. Telecine and such, or for people who really don't want to put up a stand and a screen [Wink]

The pictures suggest good quality units, and the seller offers warranty and after-sale support. I don't need one, but a fun-looking unit nonetheless.

Claus.

So.... do you think Elvis wound the film on the reel himself to attract this kind of price for a 400 foot-er????

The way he markets it makes it so much more believeable aswell.

Why not write:
"Up for sale here is a very rare 400' Super 8 sound reel of Roustabout by Elvis. A real collectors item."

instead of

"OMG ELVIS YOU NEED TO PAY LOTS FOR THIS IT IS PROBABLY REALLY RARE BUT I DONT KNOW FOR SOME REASON I CANT LOCATE NEITHER MY CAPS LOCK KEY OR THE PUNCTUATION KEY BUT WHATEVER JUST PAY ME LOTS OF CASH FOR THIS AND ILL CALL IT A RARE ONE"

Here's nice old beauty:

As the seller rightly says: the chain-drive mechanics reminds one of military-grade construction.

Shipping to the US would be horrific.... [Roll Eyes]

...speaking of 'nice old beauties', here's going back to the beginning:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390134030636&ssPageName=ADME:B:FSEL:US:1123

What a showpiece! And then you can bowl your guests over by actually running a film on it [Wink]

Here's an odd duck:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Videotronic-Compact-Super-8-Repeater-Projector_W0QQitemZ160389487472QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2557f55b70

I guess we can forgive the 'video' part of the name as they seem to use the word in the original Latin way: "I see"
This machine must be a sales tool for running films in a show booth or such.

Note that it's made in Norway, and we have a tendency of producing lots of "interesting things", note the cheese slicer.
