Typical greedy seller.
£39.99 + £5.95 for postage for five rusty/crappy 16mm 400ft cans containing spools, and vinegar smelling unknown films.

Agreed. They state in the auction that the price is for the value of the cans and reels. You can buy new ones cheaper than that! Those look terrible! Ok, someone should look at the films and identify them before tossing (you never know when one could be important) but those cans look really bad. Looks like they have been under water.

They didn't sell and have been re-listed at the same price.

This technically is not ebay, but look at how lucky someone is going to be! Wish this had been closer to me. I want to try 16mm guage one day and this would have been a good way maybe.

A bit funny - 70mm test film with obvious mag tracks (did 70mm apart from early Fox Grandeur 70 ever have anything else other than CDS digital?) saying OPTICAL SOUND ( MAY HAVE SOME CRACKLING / DROP OUTS).

I liked the look of that 70mm film until I saw the price! Old Vlad really is a character. Remember his £3,000 9.5mm METROPOLIS?

No Steven - Not £3000 - £4000. And he still lists it for sale. I wonder why it's not sold [Cool]
