“COMPLETE DIGEST, HAS STRONGLY PINKED WITH SCRATCHING. SOUND SOLD AS UNTESTED, MAY HAVE ISSUES.”

£100.00????????????????

More like £1.00!

I've been having a look at super 8 on eBay just out of interest and there is truly some madness...some folk think that just because it is on "film" it is worth mega bucks.

What a load of cheap skate chancers.

Hope any potential bidders will find our knowledgeable fold here and realise the truth.

I'd like to think that nobody is THAT gullible hopefully Rob!

As you say ..Chancers, but still, it's about time e bay wised up to sellers like this attempting to scam people.

A pricey one:

Remember you will need 3 of these to re-create the Cinerama effect. Could get expensive. [Confused]

Yet another one! I just do not understand the attraction of a rusty/dirty/incomplete/untested machine like this?

I can't be alone in being annoyed in seeing these listings ( over 40 consecutive ) of one reel of Super 8 film and with a starting bid of £30 each!! I wish someone would tell him that he would be lucky to get £30 for the lot. They are listed month after month. You would have thought he'd have got the message by now.

That's not a laugh! The other one I found when looking for it is.
The same extract but B&W is there for £70.

OH MY GOODNESS! I have just spotted it! Wish I had been a little more observant! The listing invites me to "make an offer." Dare I offer them £5 !!!!!? Tee! Hee! Hee! That one will run forever!
