Hello, I'm a new member. Happy year to you.
What do you think about it?
http://cgi.ebay.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2975214743&indexURL=5#ebayphotohosti ng

The bulb is burnt out (!!!)(see the description) and I think the lens is the 1.3 (check the photos) instead of the 1.0, but the seller doesn't say it!
US $2.190,00????
On eBay.fr one or two months ago a GS Xenon with two bulbs was sold at 2200 euro.

Thank you friends!
I shot my first film when I was 12 years old, under the guide of my uncle. He died fours years later and I stopped to use the super8: too many memories!
Now I'm 39 years old. Six years ago one of my friends asked me to project some olds home movies...and the history recommenced.
Now I shoot my films (I'm not a collector, I have only some Disney cartoons full features from Derann), with my last spools of double super8 K25 I bought from last stock. I shoot in super8 too with a Beaulieu and Leicina special.
About the projectors, I use the Elmo GS1200 for my films, and a Fumeo 9119 for some old italian copies.
happy new year!
