Try this one...

WTF? It's only a projector! What do I care who its former owner was? I'm not bidding on that guy, am I? I'm only interested in the machine, aren't I? [Roll Eyes] Meanwhile this seller is going completely gaga about the projector's history - wanna bet the reserve is somewhere in the four-digit range?... It sure wouldn't surprise me... [Roll Eyes]

Good one Jan! Amazing salesmanship! [Big Grin]

Here's one where the seller tells us what a great price he is selling this film for. But don't forget, if it doesn't sell, off to the Salvation Army it goes! [Eek!]

Heres one.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=15255&item=7504151579&rd=1

In the title they mention GENTLY USED then go on to say The lady I bought it from said it works fine. Chances are this was not bought from a ole lady but its a polite way to say final sale.
By the way your bidding on a CHONON 4000 GL-CINE PROJECTOR.

"Why yes, dear, it sure works fine... mind you it does chatter quite a bit, and oh! Did I tell you the story of how it ate the film of our vacation in Switzerland? ... No? Well, nevermind dear, it certainly is a temperamental little thing though... but it does work, why when you plug it in it starts throwing sparks right away!" *gentle smile* [Wink]

"Why yes, this fine item was owned by a little old lady who used it to show films at at her church on the weekend. And only short subjects, never more than a reel or two. She would then go home and clean the projector and the films. WD-40? Armor All? No, she used the real stuff."

(I just can't get over the "Stereofox" part! Haha! [Smile] )

You know what, I just remembered another eBay auction I saw - don't think I could find it again now, but it was for an Elmo projector, and the seller concluded his description with: "This Elmo will tickle you."

LOL!

Hey, Ugo, look! Your favorite projector is still being auctionned here.
After a starting price of 1000 euros... [Eek!]
After a renewed auction starting at 500 euros... [Eek!]
It is now being offered at 250! (but the seller says he's ready to negociate, phew, what a relief).
Oh, by the way, I paid 5 euros for this baby at a flea market.

Seriously, do people check their texts for typos before posting? Obviously not...

Which makes me think: There's a German lad who sells a lot of fine projection equipment on Ebay France, loads of really neat stuff but quite pricey, and his descriptions (in French - probably translated via Google) always feel like the Hungarian-English phrase book from the Monty Python skit. (I will not buy this record, it is scratched. Will you come to my place? My hovercraft is full of eels).

Out of curiosity, what's the username of that German guy? I probably know him - if he sells stuff on eBay Germany as well.
 
Posted by Jean-Marc Toussaint (Member # 270) on April 06, 2005, 02:32 AM:
 
Jan: It's "boskovitch". He's currently selling an Eumig S940 (drool, drool, drool...) but 600 euros, that's a bit too much.
 
Posted by Dimitrios Kremalis (Member # 272) on April 06, 2005, 01:00 PM:
 
And Jan, you're right.
He's with an other ID in german Ebay as well.
 
Posted by Jan Bister (Member # 332) on April 06, 2005, 09:35 PM:
 
Dimitrios: another user ID? If that's true then he's violating eBay policy as one is not supposed to have more than one account at a time. eBay is basically a worldwide network of sites, your username and password works the same everywhere whether you visit ebay.com, ebay.de, ebay.fr or even ebay.co.jp (good luck reading the Japanese hieroglyphs though) [Big Grin]

As for boskovitch - how weird! He lists his auctions in French but he's located in Germany? And his real name, according to one buyer's feedback, is Stefan. Could that be Stephan Binder of http://www.super8film.at/ fame?
 
Posted by Jean-Marc Toussaint (Member # 270) on April 07, 2005, 02:32 AM:
 
Boskovitch seems to be in Germany, not Austria. The people from "super8.at" have their own account as, on Ebay.de, the pictures they put online are all identified as coming from their website.
 
Posted by Jan Bister (Member # 332) on April 07, 2005, 06:13 AM:

You know it - by the time that seller goes down to 300 euros, someone will be clueless enough to actually bid (and win) at that price...
 
Posted by Jean-Marc Toussaint (Member # 270) on April 16, 2005, 02:02 AM:
 
Jan, it already went down from 1000 to 500, then to 250, and back up to 800. So I guess 400 is next... [Big Grin]

Posted by Jean-Marc Toussaint (Member # 270) on April 16, 2005, 07:32 PM:

Just when I though most OTT pricing for common bog standard films were generated from non Ebay UK sellers along comes this one today:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=35075&item=6394278510&rd=1&tc=photo

Seller says the typical 'not tested but looks in good shape' then adds 'a piece is missing as the film starts at number 5' - for that BIN price I'd expect almost the full feature in colour, not this 50ft (make that 49ft allowing for number 10,9,8,7 & 6 of the missing countdown leader) b/w silent version! Nice box though..... [Big Grin]

......also note the seller cannot count if you check the blades / apertures on the picture carefully, correct me if I am wrong but is this not a six-bladed shutter, making the picture in normal use even darker? Less flicker though if you like that sort of thing [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on May 13, 2005, 05:10 PM:
 
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=63821&item=6394164575&rd=1

Do you think the seller meant "Rare"?

Doug
 
Posted by Jan Bister (Member # 332) on May 13, 2005, 07:04 PM:
 
He probably did, but would someone tell him that an eBay listing is NOT A NEWSPAPER AD? [Roll Eyes]

And a six-bladed shutter would, of course, give you 24 x 6 = 144 light/dark cycles per second, wholly incompatible with either PAL or NTSC... I think the idea is for you to install this shutter AND tune the machine to 20fps [Wink] It's amazing, the things people do sometimes. [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Kevin Clark (Member # 211) on May 14, 2005, 11:04 AM:
 
Ignorance is bliss in the auction below, where did they get the idea it's made by Eumig anyway? At least the seller said they have no idea how or if it works (just hope they don't try to attach a mains lead) [Big Grin]

I must confess to a slight case of ignorance myself - I know that ain't no projector, but I can't tell for sure what it is. Looks like a striping machine... is it? [Confused]
 
Posted by Kevin Clark (Member # 211) on May 14, 2005, 04:50 PM:
 
Hello Jan
Yes it is indeed a striping machine. It just amazes me that the seller is so sure the striper is a Eumig projector, or a projector of any make for that matter. Perhaps they found all this stuff in an old Eumig box, or looked at the middle of the three reels in the front of the picture which I think is a Eumig brand. If they had said 'assorted cine equipment' they would have avoided the spotlight on this one. That's not a bad price for a striper with reels come to think of it [Wink]
 
Posted by Jan Bister (Member # 332) on May 14, 2005, 05:28 PM:
 
It certainly wouldn't be if there was magnetic stripe included which unfortunately it doesn't seem to be. [Smile]

And now for the next "I can't believe they didn't notice this" auction:

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=8271&item=5774789836&rd=1

It's a new, unused Elmo ST-1200D M&O machine. So far, so good, right? Well, then - why is the lamp switch in the "hi" position, rather than "off?" And why is the supply reel arm sitting on the lamphouse when it shouldn't be able to go down that far [Roll Eyes]
 
Posted by Rick Skowronek (Member # 385) on May 16, 2005, 05:44 PM:
 
Got to add this one. Saw it today and couldn't believe my eyes. Obviously seller didn't have a clue what 8mm was more or less an old filmstrip projector. LOL

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7516367792&rd=1&sspagena me=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1

By the way, that's my comment to the seller through my daughter's ebay account.

Have to add one more comment to this. This probably shows I'm no spring chicken here. I actually remember my school using these. Oh my. Need to keep that Junior title as long as I can.

First, there's the price. [Eek!] Then the comment about how the films need "dipped" first. What the heck does she mean by that? [Cool]

And the kicker: "Some rust on the reels, but films have no damage."

Okay?!? Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but: Rust = humidity. Humidity = water. Water + film = bad. Heck, if it was humid it probably was hot, too! [Roll Eyes]

And how about that feedback? Gosh golly, I don't think I would take the films for free. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Rare? This is probably the single most frequently listed item in all of eBay's 8mm category!

"This is one of their first movies! Circa 1930s"

Just to set the record straight, "Abbott and Costello Meet The Keystone Kops" (the feature this abridgement is from) is one of the Bud & Lou's final films (1955) not one of their first.

I wonder who the person was that messaged the seller and tried to put you in a bad light, Doug. [Frown] [Confused] At least the seller is handling it rather gracefully, plus admitting to having been misinformed in regards to the supposed rarity of this film. [Smile] I'd just hate to see our "worst of eBay" fun come back to bite us in the arse (pardon the language)! [Eek!]
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on May 24, 2005, 07:53 PM:
 
I hope the person who e-mailed the seller realizes that the reason this topic heading exists is to first, point out the mistakes and over inflated value that some sellers (unknowingly or not)place on their items and second, for us to get a chuckle out of it. The members of this forum are knowledgeable about this field so it's interesting for us to see how 8mm films and equipment are presented on eBay. I would also suggest that there was nothing in my post that attacks the seller personally, no matter what this person would like to infer.

To that person: Feel free to e-mail me using the above link (letter icon) and explain why you felt the need to do such. Do you go through all our postings and notify the sellers? Just curious.

This topic has gone through a few title changes in its brief history. If "Worst of eBay" is too offensive there's always "Silly little eBay". [Razz]

Whilst trawling for movie stuff on Ebay today I found this, just for a change something unusual that is film related and not a ridiculously overpriced item. Perhaps a Hammer films fan could help this seller?

Multi-Gauge Projector.... [Confused]

We found in the video world there are a lot of multi-system players, but any projector can play multi-gauge 8mm and 16mm?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=63821&item=6408800543&rd=1

The seller wrote:

The box says that it will play in 8mm OR 16mm projectors. Excellent condition.

Just one question: If you win it and your life turns out fine, can you get a refund?

Hello Mike
I first heard the term when working at a local Learning Centre - thankfully it didn't turn out to be an incurable ailment of the male private parts as I had at first suspected! The Learning Centre's ICT Tech once designed a chat based website devoted to the art of Wafflybollox - defined as 'To lose yourself in talking absolute rubbish; To speak about nothing but mention everything'. It certainly deserves more exposure as a great word to sum up so many worthless, padded, over-blown documents, conversations and presentations we are subjected to these days [Smile]

Hey Jan, I noted on that 8,500.00 dollar ebay auction, that some body ACTUALLY paid that price!!!! Good gosh, either it's someone who just likes helping people in trouble, or something I can't fathom. For all the person knows, they were getting a bunch of 50ft. silent carnival releases, (I think I can say that's about the lowest of the low), and a little sears projector. It's too bad we can't do any follow up on something like that!

Here's a seller who has either had one (or five!) too many pints before listing his/her films OR else they're absolutely bonkers. Browse through the film descriptions and you'll see what I mean:

drunk or crazy on ebay

Hang on...
Considering that the 938 has a 800ft capacity, and despite the wide angle used to take that pic, these arms seem awfully big for 1200 ft spools. Could they accomodate 2200ft?
Obviously, these are rewinds of some sort, hence the handle. But, is it my eyes or is there a belt connecting the original take-up spindle to the bottom of the frankensteinized extra large arm?

Just caught up with how this auction turned out:
Super 8 Cine Film - CADBURY'S SMASH ROBOTS 8mm Item number: 9103522129

Selling price was £77!!! Could this be the highest ever price for a 50' reel produced for sale? I have a copy and I'm not selling mine!

That Eumig S938 sure looks interesting... but judging from the length of those arms (they look suspiciously like Elmo 1200ft rewinds if you ask me), that thing probably had the capacity for 6000ft. super-8 reels (if they had ever existed, that is)! [Big Grin]

But look at the supply reel "attachment" ... it looks like it should snap off the moment you breathe at it. Personally I'd trust a TOOTHPICK more to carry a large reel filled with film than I would THIS arrangement. [Roll Eyes]

Just wish the seller would stop calling it a camera [Roll Eyes] and as far as the little monitor goes, it's very useful for quick screenings (and sound recording work, if you had a sound model that is), but telecine? Depends, I for one don't see a speed adjustment anywhere. [Razz]

I'm certainly glad that the seller allowed us to be privy to the projector's condition. It is a silent model so there's no worry about sound head wear. I'm sure this Bauer can provide years of enjoyment in the great pastime of WC (Widescreen Cinema).

For those who want to know.........

708 EL Projector for sale on Ebay Item # 190020455327

This is probably a good machine and will serve the new owner well.

Just wanted to point out that, this is the older generation unit. This is more like an ST1200HD for sound. The projector it'sself will only record mono mode on either track and will play stereo via home stereo unit connection.

The newer generation EL machine is like the GS1200. Stereo inside and out.

And you thought Harry was just a magician

Regarding the extra-length TWO TARS, I asked a similar question about a year ago. Nobody seemed to have a valid reason why. My guess is that Blackhawk had an extra long prologue section for this one. I have only seen the restored version that Bhawk did in 1975 with the original titles -- that version had no prologue.

on ebay at the moment there are some "Non rewind" reels. How do these work. I think i can imagine that the film wraps around that adaptor and the film must enter a slot/hole and go into the reel and form around the inside outer edge going towards the center. Am i right.

Because of the way they work do films have a tendenacy to scratch or rub.

Graham

I bought a couple of these off Ebay a few weeks ago, I couldn't resist it because like you I was intrigued to know how they worked.

They are an incredibly clever design, I took them to work and showed a colleague who whilst not interested in cine, appreciates a good gadget, and that's exactly what they are.

Basically, you wind the film onto the non-rewind spool just as though it were a normal auto spool; it has a little clip which you must have in the "up" position whilst it is loading and this is then pushed into the "down" position prior to showing the film. To show the film the projector has to be first fitted with the special adaptor which clips on to the feed spool arm, the loaded non-rewind spool is then loaded on to the adaptor, having first had the special clip pushed down, the white spool cover attached and the spool itself pulled apart (the two halves seperate from each other by about 5mm). You then turn the spool a couple of revolutions in the wrong direction and if you're lucky the end of the film will push out from the core end of the spool, this is as a result of having pushed the "clip" down which frees up some space, and pulling the spool apart which allows the film to rotate on the core.

The end of the film is then pulled over the rotating part of the adaptor and fed into the film path as normal. In order for the film to finish the show in a non-rewind status it is necessary to have loaded the take up arm with another special non-rewind spool.

The possibility of the film getting scratched is really quite frightening; I tried mine on an old film that I wasn't too worried about. All in all it really is a gimmick and it's not hard to see why sales of this device didn't take off, in truth it is far less of a problem to rewind the film than it is to fiddle about with the clips and spools seperators and attatch and then remove the special adaptor.

As a gimmick and a potential film scratcher it scores 10 out of 10, as a labour saving device I think it scores about - 5! [Wink]

Worth picking up though if they go cheaply - just so that you have a bit of cine history in your cupboard. [Big Grin]

This guy is trying to sell a batch of 34 films (reels?). However he's set the auction up as if he were selling 34 identical items; so whatever you bid is multiplied by 34.

I've sent him a polite message trying to point this out to him, but only received sarcasm in reply; so beware of bidding with the terminally stupid.

The funny part is the auction states "Get low monthly payments".

-How low could they be? $100,000?

There's something fishy here. I can't imagine James Bond's Astin Martin getting that kind of cash and that would be ten times the icon this one is!

Update: There is now an item on the auction that bidders came in and bid the price through the roof just for fun. (Some people really need a hobby...)

Hmmm....I'm sure Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss would be a bit upset to hear about their demise. "Peter Bentley", producer? The novel was written by Peter Benchley, the producers were Zanuck & Brown. I was wondering who was writing most of the Wikipedia entries.....

Considering the seller states that he has "treasured this movie for years" he obviously hasn't watched it much. [Confused]
An "almost full length intact copy of the film", despite stating previously that it's only 35mins long, approx a 1/3rd of the movie and starring that well known animal impressionist, "Frank LAMBella".

Keith, I noticed this before as they have been trying to sell this for months. They did originally state it was almost full length. Either they genuinly dont know or they were trying to pull a fast one. At least they admit its going pink but this is probably the main reason they havent sold it, and the price, + no original box.

Any film I see listed as going pink or turning I stay completly away.

Happy Christmas Graham

Funny how each and every one of us can stick our own label to a film as rare. What’s rare for one may not be for another perhaps and I have also fallen foul to believing one or two of my own films are rarer when in fact they are well circulated. Perhaps if you are a Zep fan this will prove irresistible and a must have. If George Formby was in it I would have given the start price, but there again I am a hardened Formby nut of some 30+ years.

Want an IB Technicolor dye-transfer Super 8 print? Wait no more:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=130095997914

Strange thing is, that stunning collector's box and film reel looks exactly like the other ones I have that are faded to red.

(Seriously, does anyone know of the existence of any dye-transfer Super 8 prints? I don't think even the Techicolor Cartridge system had it THAT good!)
 
Posted by David Kilderry (Member # 549) on January 11, 2008, 08:01 PM:
 
Bill you are correct, no such thing as Dye Imbibition printing in Super 8. The original theatrical releases were in Technicolor and I am sure this is where the confusion came in. I note it is being sold on behalf of someone else by an ebay assistant too.

On eBay there's an auction for a Bolex handgrip.
The price is already up to 282,- euro and still has 10 hours to go.
You can buy a complete H8 or H16 (including handgrip) for this price.

The idea of that little lens-mounted sensor is quite nice, but in my head I was trying to run through all the (usual) possible shortcomings of such a device: shutter flicker, hot spots, and such. The resolution isn't much either.

Hi Keith,

I think if you look very closely, you will see a full stop after the word 'white'.

Therefore I read it that the actual film in in monochrome, but the box is very colourful. Yes?!?!

Certainly reads very oddly if you don't happen to spot that full stop, though.

It's a Kinéclair from around 1910.

If you investigate his other "film's" in his shop it would appear that he has the "rare" "Gullivers Travels" at $59.95 also., but he only thinks its black and white (looking at the first few feet) but he doesn't have a projector so he can't inspect it !

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.

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!

Dear Ebay Seller:

There are many of us who would love to buy your vintage movie equipment, but we don't want to take the risk because of your sloppy descriptions. Therefore, and with all due respect, some things you should know.....

1. If you sell projectors all the time which some of you do, please take a moment and hunt down some film with sound. It's a good idea to test it 100%. Just because the spindles turn without the heavy load of threaded film doesn't mean the belt is tight enough to handle the load when it is. Just because you hear the amplifier click and hiss doesn't mean the head is aligned or good and will play the sound.

2. Projectors are used to show or play "features." And these prints are really expensive and we know your projector won't come with any of these because you don't have any of these anyhow because if you did you'd be testing it properly, right? Thus, please list the things that the projector does as "options." It's a better word and it makes more sense.

3. And besides, anybody interested in buying your projector would already expect and know that the machine should go forward, reverse, rewind, autoload, have a lamphouse, and nice big colorful switches and knobs and other thingamabobs or whatchamacallits.

4. Finally, if you are selling a feature, we expect and assume that you do not have a projector to test the print. How's that for a good guess! So with that said, alot of optical prints were made on Kodak Eastman stock, and are subject to fading. If you don't know, that's where the nice true blues, greens, blacks, purples, and whites, turn pink. It can be also observed as color warming, which turns the colors to a brownish sepiatone, which has nothing to do with the sound, by the way.

5. Also with color fading comes a hideous smell. Somestimes as bad if not worse then the aroma of fresh baked beans with beer hours after having been consumed and partially digested - it';s called vinegar and if you are on a diet you probably eat salad with your meals and yes the odor is the same and whilst it mixes well with iceberg that they served on the Titanic; it does not mix well with acetate or polyester based film prints.

6. So before you go and list your movie product, please make sure you learn about what you are selling. It's not fair to the winning bidder to get a Yugo when they hope they have won a Mercedes. We as bidders of course take that risk, but you as a deadbeat seller are also taking that risk. And don't ask us to ask you questions, because within that product, you should know all the answers, likewise.

Thank you for your time and consideration. [Big Grin]

I bought a GS-1200 from this seller. It was described as "Best Condition".

It has already cost me £125 in repairs and there's still a problem with auto-thread.

There is no such thing as a mint GS-1200.

Take my tip, save your money.

I also have a GS-800. This is a model which I can thoroughly recommend.
 
Posted by Graham Sinden (Member # 431) on November 20, 2008, 11:23 AM:
 
IMO id say that a 'mint' GS1200 is one which has never been used ever and is still in its original box and inner wrapping untouched except to inspect. With all accessories un opened in bags. Also kept in room conditions all the time (not the loft/attic or celler/basement).

These do exist and sometimes turn up on Ebay but you will be lucky to find one.

Posted by Kevin Faulkner (Member # 6) on November 20, 2008, 11:36 AM:
 
I would say that these are more likely to sell for £600 - £800 depending on condition and version etc.

Posted by Graham Sinden (Member # 431) on November 20, 2008, 03:15 PM:
 
Larry, if you do a search you will see this has been discussed several times. The most obvious difference is ver 2 and 3 the bottom loop goes back towards the lamp and the loop reformer points the other way. Also in ver 3 machines there are lines on the volume knobs (not dots). Version 1 machines have a bottom loop like on the ST1200.

The seller says "rare" and rare it is. I can't remember last time I saw such a price on the bog-standard 1.3 Elmo Zoom:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ELMO-SUPER-8-ZOOM-LENS-BRIGHT-F-1-3-15-25mm-RARE_W0QQitemZ110315333757QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item110315333757&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms =72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

From the writing, you get the impression he's trying to snare people who may think they are getting one of the faster lenses we all like, even though he puts the f-stop right out there. The way he talks about "increased brightness" suggests he's aware of what he's doing.

Note the frequent use of "director's cut" and similar phrases so you don't confuse it with the 'edited' version the director objected to....
The tremendous production values, as seen in the stills, should make this a real money maker. As mentioned, the film was "extremely successful in a very limited release." I guess that means all the family members showed up at the rented venue.
But hey, if they can even mention the "Canne" (sic) film festival in connection with this, it has to be good.

There is indeed a sucker born every minute, as Barnum put it, if someone actually lays down cash for this.

Looking at those stills, it looks like something made with a camcorder on a sunday afternoon. Hey, just put this scarf round your mouth and I will point this knife at you.

And let me grab you round your neck while I stare at the camera lens. [Big Grin]

If he couldnt make any money out of it, what makes others think they can. There are no DVD's left (the 5 produced are wrapped up for christmas), but he will supply you all the masters you need to make more DVD's. Just dont make too many unless you have orders for them.

I wouldnt mind betting that the Website could be the better deal. Just dont sell any of Nick Palumbo’s films on it, and instead make it a general site for Horror DVD's.

As you say Claus, one for the suckers out there.

Mike,

Actually if it is not too long, you can just do "cut" and "paste" like what you did. But if the URL is too long, it seems that this forum cannot handle.

FYI writing an Ebay URL can be done in 2 different ways:

1. The URL that is very long like you did above.

2. Or the shorter version (by adding only the item# to the generic address). So for the above URL, it will be seen like this: http://cgi.ebay.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320322469826

How much would you be prepared to pay for a B&W print of a colour Willie Whopper cartoon title?

£8?
£12?
£15?

I might even go as high as £20 because I've never seen this title on e-bay before. Provided it had a good description of the print's quality.

But wait! What if the print came from MGM's EMI library? How much of a premium is that worth? "Nothing", I hear you cry. Nonsense, it's copy number 1 - wow, how r@@@@re is that????

I'll tell you - starting price £175.

For a print with no leader, no description of its quality and, oh, they got the year it was made wrong too.

Anybody want to tell him or just force him to pay the high listing price as punishment?

How the hell can a projector be "in full working order" when it requires three belts which have "crumbled away" and also possibly a "plastic cog"??

You can have any color you like, providing it is "red".

Mabye the bidder is only paying that price as the 1200ft reels are nice elmo ones. $24 isnt a bad price for the 2 and he could sell the film for say $9 on smaller reels. Or mabye he has got one of those colour correction filters hoping for miracles [Big Grin] [Big Grin] .

Yep! Rarities of Rarities -- "A rare and great item for film and Batman collectors" -- that's right, you can have the first (very abridged) reel of fifteen (though there were only six in this series of digests), and sorry, there's no sound, BUT at least it's mint condition, all for the low, low price of $49.99. Don't delay, bid today!

The Batman reel..... If I read it right it is a re-listing. It didn't get a bid at $39.95, so he's relisted at $49.95!
If it doesn't sell this time perhaps he'll make sure of a sale by listing again at $999.95!

I've sent this question....You describe this as "perfect working order".
As this model needs the correct transformer and a "model specific" Y connecting lead, how do you know?...

Stand by for the reply.

Received answer.... "tested with a 110v transformer

Even if it is in "perfect working order" it's not worth that price - though they are nice machines.

Some people just haven't got a clue about what it is they're selling.
Still, I suppose they only need one other person who equally hasn't got a clue about what it is they're buying!!

I sold one of those machines years ago (I think the same) for £5 and the guy who purchased it only wanted the mains lead, but the deal was he had to take the projector away as well! I was given the projector originally but had no space or use for it.

Well, this isn't really an oddity, but this person has a bunch of stuff on ebay right now and won't give any description on any of them.

He shows a 50 foot reel for "One A.M." for $19.99! Does he not know better or is it the full film? Either way, twenty bucks is steep for such a common title.

Kurt,

Ebay now has different platform in showing the description. If your computer did not fully load the page, then you would not see the description. Do a refresh and you will see that.

If refresh does not cure the problem, try to change the ".com" with ...say..."com.my" as this Malaysian website still using old platform.

This has been discussed previously in different thread.

I've just checked out the item above and if you look closely at the picture, you can see that it's a partially filled 200' reel and it must only be the TRAILER! In fact I bought a copy of this from Derann ages ago after they re-released some Red Fox releases, and I'm sure mine is low fade. If anyone that wants to make a big saving offers me a mere $150, I'll reluctantly part with it!

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

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]

There were several type of film cartridges sold on those days. Apart from Videotronic, there was also Technicolor which the cart was not compatible to the other brands.

I got these cartridges (but not the machine) which each cart equal with 400 feet films. They were very cheap from Ebay at around $3/each. The funny (and good) thing is they are not typical ad or commercial films but my cartridges contain Hollywood films (Buck Rogers complete 12 series).

Just in case I didn't find the right machine (at the moment there are a lot Technicolor machines offered but they are only for 200 feet which called Technicolor 800, while I need 1000 serial above), I will dissembled the cartridges and put into normal reels.

ps: any idea about the relationship between this Technicolor and the Technicolor (of film stock)?

Gian,

I was curious myself, so I tossed the text into Google Translator:

"Movie projector Elmo GS-1200

First-class movie projector format Super-8 mm films reproducing black-and-white and color, mute and audio (optical and magnetic sound recording system) mono or stereo dwuścieżkowo. Electronic control mechanism of soft-touch "freeze-frame and frame by frame playback, advanced editing features in the recordings, sound mixing, precise control of speed and the ability to synchronize the projection of the video camera shutter speed (the transfer of a DVD) - the most important of the many features of this device.

Projector efficient, interior equipment visually clean and able to "factory", back cover and Footer have repaired cracks slot synchronizer is chipped - everything is seen from the attached photos. Mechanical bits and pieces do not have any impact on the quality of the projection.

Tested the projector with color film, sound and film test SMTP. Projection is implemented correctly in the forward and backward. You may want to preserve / adjust the system of the tape to get a steadier picture. On some old tapes the picture is less stable - but it is a feature of this technology yet ...

Projector join the original cover. Not included the spool, the cable and instructions. Fits standard cable eg from a computer scan of the instructions I send mail (English or German), or you can find yourself on the Internet.

Feel free to bid!

Receive a personal preference (Warsaw and surroundings). Weight approximately 20 kg. The cost of shipping only insured courier DPD - about 50, - zł."

There you have it, in fine GooglEnglish [Big Grin]

So, a few chips and such, no cord. Interesting that he says he actually tested it with SMPTE film; first person I have ever seen mentioning this in a sales ad.
However, there may be a gate issue as he says something about stability depending on the film involved....

Posted by Christian Bjorgen (Member # 1780) on January 06, 2010, 07:32 AM:
 
£550 for that projector is waaay too much. Especially since its got several damaged parts and because of the gate problem.

Claus, great job once again.
I'm too lazy for this eh eh eh [Wink] . We should ask Mr. Kevin Faulkner what he thinks about it. But here in Europe the price is absolutely good.

As Alexander stated in another thread referring to the GS he bought in Argentina, it's really hard to get one for less than 1.000/1.200 euro, here.

Yes, miracles are possible (I had both mine for less than 600), but it's quite hard, and I had to wait so longtime before getting the first GS at a decent price.

Moreover, on the other side, we don't have to undervalue a GS, nowadays, is really much cheaper compared to prices of 8/10 years ago. And it's today a little bit more easier to find it (maybe thanks to Ebay too).
Once again, some years ago it seemed all of them were totally disappeared!

There doesn't seem to be a transformer, either. I have to admit, I've thrown more than one of these away in the past... better condition than this one too.

Been watching this a while; started at £399, then £369, now this.

does this seller pay to list each time?, because by the time he works this out he'll have paid more in fees that the item's value.
Part of me thinks it would serve him right for being so greedy.
 
Posted by Winbert Hutahaean (Member # 58) on January 16, 2010, 07:18 AM:
 
John, It is always to happen when sellers re-listing, they will lower the price until the items are sold.

I think Ebay allows seller to re-list at no charge. This is one of Ebay's trick to get the selling fees. Ebay doesn't care with listing fee since it is only few cents, but selling fees is the more important, because selling fee is percentage from the ending price (plus if the buyer pays it with paypal, another fee is also charged from there)

cheers
 
Posted by Bart Smith (Member # 780) on January 16, 2010, 12:19 PM:
 
The seller has an eBay shop with over 1500 items on sale, so he will probably be paying a monthly fee of £49.99, and each time he lists the projector it will only cost him 5p.

Not much of a gamble if you fancy flying a kite.

"Great documentary on climbing everest, not sure which team as it is a long time since I watched this movie. This is on a 400ft reel, Super 8mm Colour Sound. In plastic MGM box".
Wasn't the team those two famous "charioteers", sorry, "mountaineers" Heston and Boyd?

Is 'BEN-HUR a sister peak to'BEN NEVIS'?

Also, why have the "Starting Price" the same as the "Buy It Now"? Seems a bit pointless!

When? WHEN? will these folks stop trying to sell this "bright" 1.3 factory-standard Elmo lens at $100???
I sent them a polite/deliberately stupid email months ago about how they must have mixed up this lens with the 1.1 premium lens...no response of course.

All kidding aside, I would really hate for someone new to the hobby to get so caught up in "upgrading" that they don't read the ad and the f-stop numbers carefully enough to actually pay these folks that kind of money for what is a good, but by no means, $100 lens.

The very fact that they just keep re-listing it endlessly with the same ad blurb suggests in my mind that those are exactly the people they are looking for.

The sellers on ebay are terrible making a price on films including movie cameras. They always put like hundreds and thousands of dollars on a single 50 ft, 200ft or more reels of common copies of films. I dont get it.
 
Posted by Wayne Tuell (Member # 1689) on April 26, 2011, 02:01 PM:
 
Nathan, you DO get it, it is the sellers who have no clue. They think just because they pay too much for something at an "estate" sale, add in that it is old, automatically makes it valuable.

If you ever watch the Pawn Stars show, the bald headed guy Rick once mentioned the same thing...I'm pretty sure he mentioned that about film projectors...I was in the shop a few weeks ago and what did I find? A Kodak Pageant film projector with a price tag of $500.00 on it! In the good condition it is in, I'd say $50.00 would have been more like it.

I wish I had kept the link yesterday. I found someone on craigslist who was trying to sell an "antique video projector" for several hundreds of dollars. It was nothing more than a silet 8mm Revere projector you can find at thrift stores for $20.00.
 
Posted by Nathan DeHahn (Member # 2192) on April 27, 2011, 07:52 AM:
 
Yes i have seen that on pawn stars. I have tried look for Canon 514XL camera in 3 years. No one sells it like in between 15 to 35 dollars. One big flaw about the prices on Canon's 514XL cameras, it doesnt have cool features like time laspe, slow motion, 8x or 10x zoom lens, overlapping fades, and remote plug for sound recording. It should been like cheap it only has 9 and 18 fps including single frame on 514XL. I was not looking for mint condition 514XL but a nice working condition and clean.
Looked for online including Ebay and Cragslist and its always expensive.

Nathan, .. it seems that you are only looking at Ebay or Craiglist or Kijiji at normal category and were not thinking miss-categorized items.

Beside, I suggest you to keep looking on certain regular time (once a day instead of once a week) will bring you more big luck.

For example (I have shared in this forum), I got an ELMO GS-800 projector at Kijiji for $125 listed as video projector. I won an ELMO GS-1200 from Ebay for $240 listed as Slide Projector. I got several reels of super 8mm films listed as ......... GAME CARTRIDGES !!!! [Big Grin]

And just recently (I also shared in this forum), I got a Eumig 610 D Lux dual projector, Elmo camera super 106, Elmo dual editor, Vivitar tele-cine/transfer box, books, and film all for $60 from Kijiji (free-ad). Everything comes with manual and original box.

In the other forum, someone got :

quote:
I bought an Elmo GS1200 Genari second with lens 1.0 + a sound viewer GOKO PM 4000 + 7 reels and cans 240m Posso with home movies, with two reels and cans of 360m + a device to mix the sound for a Téléscreen Video Transfer synchronize a video of brand new + full of beautiful accessories including splicers, a second lens ELMO 1:1.1, a new lamp!

All: 50 euros!

It is around $75..... see ! It is about a continuous effort ! [Wink]

What's Kijiji [Confused]
 
Posted by Winbert Hutahaean (Member # 58) on April 27, 2011, 04:34 PM:
 
Kijiji is Ebay division for Free-classified Ad.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kijiji

It is meant to compete Craiglist.

I now prefer Kijiji than Craiglist. Craiglist is too modest for browsing, while Kijiji is close to Ebay but more local contents.

Check your local Kijiji if any.

I was watching this when it was listed for a starting bid of 9.95. A day before the auction ended with no bids it was removed and said "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available". Then it was immediately relisted with a starting bid of $495.00. plus its listed as super 8 when it's actually regular 8mm.

Kind of steep for a "somewhat faded" 15 min. film, no? I wonder if the price was supposed the be $20.99 and the seller accidentally added a few more zeros.

20 bids and currently at $74! Really? And it could still go higher! I sold my faded copy about a year ago and was happy to get $25. The seller doesn't even know what it looks like.

"I have been informed that there could be a loss of color due to age of film. Not sure if this is true but I wanted to put it out there because I have no projector to check film."

Is this digest really that rare? I'm wondering if I should have kept the one I sold even though it was almost beet red and had some splices.

It's a Victorian 'Pipe offender'.

After a hearty meal a Victorian gentleman would put washing up liquid into the pipe and blow bubbles whilst leaning against the mantelpiece.
At the same time the wooden paddle handle would be tucked down the front of his waistcoat and he would turn the large wheel which operated two (long lost) fabric cables which would in turn raise and lower the hem of his britches thereby 'offending' any passing maidens of child bearing age.

At least that's what I think it is.

I guess the current bidder try to salvage some picture from film cells instead of playing it on projector. Any train related films always attract buyers.

This was a interesting discovery:

I never knew this was copied to 8MM formats, presumably the originals where 16MM.

This would probably be something like a holy grail to collectors of WWII paraphernalia.

This Bolex H-9 camera sold for $567.46. Does anyone make 9.5mm film anymore? I don't know much about 9.5mm film but as rare as that camera may be it seems like a lot of money for a camera that you can't use. I thought the value of the old Bolex cameras was the fact that you can still shoot film with them or the value of the lenses on it. This one only has one C-mount lens so I don't think they paid that much the lens.
 
Posted by Martin Jones (Member # 1163) on August 19, 2012, 02:38 PM:
 
YES, YES, YES!
H9s are very rare but many other 9.5mm cameras in great working order are still available and there is a VERY active 9.5mm Group in the UK. Both black and white and colour reversal film and processing is freely available in UK, France and probably other parts of Europe. Great Gauge... frame area almost the same as 16mm and was THE Amateur Gauge in Europe. More so than 8mm until Kodachrome was introduced (although Kodachrome did appear for a while in 9.5mm). Super 8 overtook it but it has never really gone away.

That is very true Martin,Tony Reypert of Buckingham Films, does
a splendid job of "modernising" Elf 16mm projectors to 9.5mm
with the added bonus of a good amplifier.Good news for the
9.5 brigade.
 
Posted by Bryan Chernick (Member # 1998) on August 20, 2012, 12:31 AM:
 
Thanks for the information Martin. So who makes the film? is someone slitting and re-perforating Kodak film?
 
Posted by Martin Jones (Member # 1163) on August 20, 2012, 02:35 AM:
 
Fuji, for one.
Here's a web page giving some further information.
http://www.pathefilm.freeserve.co.uk/lists/filmlista.htm
Lots of information on this page, including on Group 9.5... read it well and navigate around all his other pages. His site is very informative. There are other UK suppliers as well.
I'm not into 9.5 any more: in fact, I'm not even into shooting real film, as I'm a pensioner with limited means. I enjoy the technology of "Home Movie"equipment these days...repair, modification etc.

Just look at the end statement: "not a bargain, but an investment for life only a few prints made, this chance never comes back".

Well, good luck getting that price!!

Funny, under the "Shipping and Payments" tab, the seller says "Will arrange for local pickup only (no shipping)."

ID4 was one of my least favorite movies of all time to pay money to see in a theater. Can't imagine even paying $150 to own a print, let alone $1,500... and of course, nobody else will either.

Don't you just hate it when this happens? I bought the "Empire Strikes back" trailer recently but it was too faded for my liking so sold this film to a guy for $10 (at a small loss) and he's immediately relisted it for 99 quid! Anyway, good luck to him.There are insane Star Wars collectors out there who would have no idea that Paul F. and CHC often stock this for 10 pounds.

I sent them a question "was it hit by a truck?"

And the response was "I buy all of my items used, so I do not know an items history prior to my finding it. In this particular case the damage appears more along the lines of having been dropped off of a truck, likely from a height above 1 meter".

I wasn't really expecting a response.

On a side note I just got one for $25 from a local seller on Craigs List in almost perfect condition. It was very well taken care of over the years. [Big Grin]

Item 371029253013
I now know I have either lost the plot or this is listed wrong!

£125 for a pinky 183ft super 8 film...

In the 1970's I purchased this from good old Barry Wiles Films who was very kind to me as a young film collector price £5.20 I seem to remember. I still have the very same film which always had a very slight pink tint IN PLACES note. How on earth can this old flick be worth £125 I ask?

Here is my own copy in its old Barry Wiles Box and had since I was but a lad..

 -

Lady on the box did the audio mix I understand.

Off screen picture from my own print. It is sharp but picture taken just with el mobile.
 -

Still no lines (other than train tracks) projected on Eumig and later GS1200 over oh..... 35+ years maybe. Barry had just got these prints in I think.

If that is the 200' then my 400' has got to be worth close to $300, right? [Smile]

One of the lenses in this collection keeps triggering one of my favorites searches, which is annoying:
Ten lenses for sale.

So this lot was first listed for $100, and that didn't get a sale, so let's try $250! Plus expensive shipping from Canada.

Clincher: an As Is sale, no returns, with insufficient info and not the best photos. I'd give him $40 at most.

You are right of course Jason, but then again there are many that would never pay $800 for one film. So I think it's all relative and once someone pays £1100 for a 8mm print, then before you know it someone is commanding $2000 for this type of rare print on a larger gauge.

The only way things settle at sensible levels is if the buyer doesn't get a sale at those prices.

I must say I would never and could never pay that much for a film print. And it isn't even the fact of what title. I have always rated APOCALYPSE NOW as a great film and a favourite and that appeared as a new condition 16mm print this year but it was about US$1500 if I remember rightly. It was the 'Redux' version too so a newer print for sure, ( although I prefer the shorter version, ) but no, I'm not in that top end league even for a favourite film...

Posted by Maurice Leakey (Member # 916) on August 19, 2015, 02:31 AM:
 
The seller quotes the re-wound motor as "three-phase 220 volts* which sounds a contradiction.
Perhaps a more knowledgeable member could elucidate.
 
Posted by Andrew Woodcock (Member # 3260) on August 19, 2015, 03:18 AM:
 
A 3ph motor fed with 415v across the phases but connected in delta only actually gives (have to say it as there are no symbols) root three of the voltage to each of the phases which is 415 divided by 1.732 = 240v if that's what he is getting at?
 
Posted by Maurice Leakey (Member # 916) on August 19, 2015, 04:10 AM:
 
Thanks, Andrew,
That's, more or less (!), what I thought. Not much of a restoration project for eventual use at home on single phase. I suppose a scrap Debrie motor could be found.
It all sounds a pretty worthless project. (Although I know of one person who might have a go if the price was right.)
 
Posted by Terry Sills (Member # 3309) on August 19, 2015, 07:44 AM:
 
Unless this is a 'special' - Debrie 16's are 110Volt and from the look of the motor it looks like the standard motor which is definitely 110v.
 
Posted by Brian Fretwell (Member # 4302) on August 19, 2015, 03:32 PM:
 
The badge from the projector in one picture states
Alimentation
Lampe 115V mono - 50
Excitarice 10V 7.5 amp
Moteur 220v tri - 50

So looks like it is a 3 phase motor. If my French is not too bad.
 
Posted by Terry Sills (Member # 3309) on August 20, 2015, 02:06 AM:
 
Well spotted Brian. Probably a more powerful motor because it is a double band machine?. It also states type DB so not the same spec as a D16. It also has a separate exciter lamp whereas the D16 uses light diverted from the main projection lamp. If anyone fancies taking on the project I have some of those exciter lamps.
 
Posted by Martin Jones (Member # 1163) on August 20, 2015, 02:26 AM:
 
Come on! Think about it! £500 for a kit of parts to build a machine that cannot be used for it's designed purpose (even if it is complete and all components fully functional)?
It's a double band machine..... lots of double band prints still available? Lots of 16mm double band magnetic stock still available? What do you do with after you've put it together?
The only use I can see is as a display item.... but £500?????

Any one with money to throw around?

Yet another Debrie comes out of the woodwork! And a messed up one at that. A hideous paint job for whatever reason, and what is it standing on? No mention of a transformer, or speaker, on any connecting leads.

A further surprise is the plate which states that is 50/60 cycles.

From the rather poor photographs it looks like one of the later grey models that could slide in and out of its amplifier. I seem to recall that there was a choice of three amps with differing outputs.

Having said all that, would there be any point in anyone actually buying it?
 
Posted by Terry Sills (Member # 3309) on August 23, 2015, 11:02 AM:
 
Maurice
It is actually standing on the transformer of the later model and because the projector is slide mounted on the amplifier it looks like the projector is the later model too. but you wouldn't think so to look at it and as you say, no speaker and no leads. Only fit for spares at a fraction of the asking price.

@ Janice- I agree. I am the same way and this is one reason i hardly sell stuff these days...I dread the whole 'putting together' of the auction....I love watching people bid on my stuff once it is up, but the thrill has not been enough with all the work involved...
This seller has 100% feedback, so my guess is a very sincere person who loves cats, and like me, are tired/lazy of/with the whole process and figures they can sell by feedback, which I agree they can... I would have no issue buying from them myself...but in the meantime...we can have fun poking at the pics [Smile]

I have a great idea for a new website -- it matches up people who have projectors to sell on ebay but with no films to test them with, with people who have films to sell but with no projectors to test them with.

If that's a success, I will modify it to accommodate turntable sellers with record sellers.

And it will also have advice:

- don't call a film "tape"
- don't call them "reel to reel" -- that terminology is for reel to reel tape recorders
- nobody gives a hoot if the piece of tape that holds down the film end is original or not -- and it's probably not
- stop calling projectors "cadillacs" or "rolls royces", especially when they are no where near close to that
- films can be 8mm or 16mm, but not both, despite what it says on Castle film boxes
- if you're not sure, measure the width of the film
- showing a pic of the film on the reel tells me next to nothing
- HAVE BADGE WILL CHASE is not rare
- if your film is so rare, why do I see 5 other copies listed right now?
- if it smells of vinegar, throw it out!
- please put the name of the film in the auction title
- I really don't care if this used to be Cecil B. Demille's personal copy of the film
- if you're going to send the film in a pizza box, please have the decency to empty out the crumbs first
- if a projector plays single 8 and super 8, it is not a dual 8 machine unless it plays Standard 8, too
- some 8mm Bell and Howell filmo-sound machines weren't designed to play magnetic sound films -- don't ask!
- it's Super 8mm sound, not 8mm Super sound -- go ask Castle why
- Castle "complete" editions aren't the complete movies - again, go ask them!
- stop telling me that a 40 year old projector was never used, or that a 40 year old print was never viewed
- don't be cute with the wording -- "I" didn't notice any splices, this is the best print that "I've" ever seen of this title, "I've" only watched this once.
- oh yea -- Don't list a DVD or VHS tape in the film stock section!!!!

Laurel and Hardy

I'm not a 35mm collector, but as a Laurel and Hardy aficionado and collector, I thought I should comment. I've seen the auctions for several months now -- someone has cut up the BEST OF LAUREL AND HARDY compilation and is selling it in pieces. Why? Although each segment can stand on its own, they are not complete. Also, I believe this particular film is rare -- I've never seen it listed in 16mm. L&H in 35mm is even rarer.

The seller has been asking outrageous prices -- this one is actually cheap by his standards.

Anyway, it just makes me cringe that this film is being chopped up for sale. I know it is his to do what he wants with it, but what if the person who owned the second reel of THE BATTLE OF THE CENTURY, for whatever strange reason, decided to chop it up into pieces before selling? He has every right to do it, but is it the right thing to do?
 
Posted by Terry Sills (Member # 3309) on November 14, 2015, 04:14 PM:

Star Wars though and the trailer that wasn't shown much as the film was retitled before release from Revenge of the Jedi to Return of the Jedi. I imagine this had very few prints made, some Star wars collectors would value this very highly.

I have two copies of this and both only cost around $20.
I could maybe see it selling for $50 but $399 is just stupid.

Only missing last 10 minutes...

So pretty worthless then really...

I've thought the very same for sometime regarding this print Rob.

It is no surprise to me that this has been repeatedly advertised for months and months now without a sale.

Unless you have one already with an undamaged last reel but a ruined beginning, I think this film will struggle to sell at the price it is being offered.
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on January 03, 2016, 05:05 AM:
 
How do you get the last 10 minutes missing?
Surely the last reel wasn't just 200 foot was it? [Confused]

Posted by Andrew Woodcock (Member # 3260) on January 03, 2016, 05:50 AM:
 
May have had a print defect or stripe defect to begin with?

Could easily have been a white box special from when originally purchased with a known last reel fault.

I have a few prints that are no longer complete for one reason or another.

These types of prints will always be useful to one person or another who may already have the feature or at least part of it.
The only issue being where you pitch the price at when advertising an incomplete feature.

As time goes by we will surely be seeing more and more of these types of sales.
 
Posted by Brian Fretwell (Member # 4302) on January 03, 2016, 06:10 AM:
 
I have several "white box" single reels and wouldn't pay much more than a tenth of that price (per reel) for this, if I had the last reel.
 
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on January 03, 2016, 06:15 AM:
 
Andrew, the problem here is the high price asked for an incomplete film. The seller seems to think it's just a little disadvantage...
 
Posted by Andrew Woodcock (Member # 3260) on January 03, 2016, 07:02 AM:
 
yes Dominique, I agree with both yours and Brian's sentiments here. Whether or not we will still continue to find white box special one off 600ft parts from features for £27 remains to be seen though.

I know this is around the price Derann once charged for such prints,but if you happen to be the guy who still has one or two of these and someone needs one to complete or repair their feature, then perhaps each reel could fetch considerably more by a collector specifically needing just one odd reel.
 
Posted by Rob Young. (Member # 131) on January 03, 2016, 08:05 AM:
 
"The seller seems to think it's just a little disadvantage..."

Exactly, Dominique, that is what makes it so funny

£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.

This ones got me a bit worried.

The warm up thing, had plenty of these and never needed that and the tape on the camera thing.

Also regarding cine to video on these you need to take the back off and mess with the speed pots to avoid strobing, its a right going on.

The Sankyo 1000 is a nice projector apart from having the "Spaceman" 8v 50w bulb. I've two of them which cost me a total of about £46 including carriage a year or so ago. They worked fine after I'd fitted new belts. However, I doubt if this one will attract many bidders.

Typical greedy seller.
£39.99 + £5.95 for postage for five rusty/crappy 16mm 400ft cans containing spools, and vinegar smelling unknown films.
 
Posted by Bill Phelps (Member # 1431) on April 29, 2018, 06:27 AM:
 
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.

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]

Not really "ebay oddities" anymore, just looneys who seem to think people are stupid but appear to be so, themselves

The funny part about the above one is this, quote "COMPLETE DIGEST, HAS STRONGLY PINKED WITH SCRATCHING. SOUND SOLD AS UNTESTED, MAY HAVE ISSUES"

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Elvis-Presley-Live-In-Philadelphia-On-Film-June-23-1974-Super-8-8mm/352190858676?hash=item52003605b4:g:WIMAAOSw4nhZ66M6

Now then, while one or two of these may well fetch good money, why do the sellers just keep on listing,not selling, listing,not selling and so on?

I've said it before, why not just start at a reasonable price and then hopefully things may work out. I know there a some gullible people out there that these sellers try to prey on, but i wonder if these sellers realise what the majority of people looking in think about them.

ahh right, in that case, with that in mind, do you think some people either lose the plot or just get plane greed set in?
On this war of the worlds record promo i recently sold an A1 copy for 27 quid with screen shots showing how good the print was. I was more than happy with this having listed it for 9.99 but this one with a start price of 150 from someone within the hobby just covers all of what has been said about eBay prices and the people who try it on. It even states possible scratching and fade with no kind of guarantee of it being any good.
Not so much an oddity but a disgraceful listing by someone who,(by the sound of it) should know better and is hoping to rob a buyer with very little knowledge of the hobby.

I use this title as my test film with newly acquired Super 8 projectors.
I bought it new from Derann in 1976 when it cost £6.
It's quite short and is believed, perhaps, to have been made for television.
In addition to the Beatles (Paul plays piano) there is Yoko Ono who appears to be knitting.
