    Obviously underprices. A Rare Vintage Canon Rolleiflex SLR Camera is clearly worth at least $699. $999 without contract.

    Not sure it works though. But, the camera works? Canon Rolleiflex? I wish these guys would be honest. "I was cruising the local thrift and in the bin was this camera for $20 and also another with a tag that was marked Canon for $5 so, I pulled the tag and slapped it on this one and as the tag said Canon, it has to be true and has to be rare as no one else would have thought about doing this."

    A Canon Rolleiflex hipster SLR?

    Never thought I'd get to see one of those.... In black, too!

    Not often you see a 'vintage film camera bundle' like that.

    It would be much better if he just called it a Canon, listed it in the Canon section and had a price around $50.

    Is it a RolleiCanonFlex Hipster SLR or a Canonned Rolleiflex Hipster SLR? :confused:

    That monster auction site is chock full of nit wits, half wits, dim wits and just plain morons. And not to mention quite a few cheats.

    Actually, since I use and basically like that camera, I find the Canon part offensive... :wink:

    It really is a very pretty camera in real life, though that doesn't come through in those lousy ad photos...
    And I consider myself pretty hip! :smile: :smile:

    As the vendor of this fine camera, I find the remarks on this forum most offensive.
    Be sure to watch out for my next offering, an even rarer Super Pentaxacon Leica Sheister.

    There is a guy across the river from me that keeps trying to sell his moldy lint covered M4 for $1000s.
    I was gonna call him to give it a good cleaning/inspection and photograph it not on a dirty tablecloth, but just from his descriptions he sounded nuts.

    I'm guessing there is a Canon filter on it because it is definitely a Rollei lens.

    and yet...it is because of such sloppy, no research, let's just hype it and go approaches at the nutball auction that I was able to obtain my "Grafex Trip Back Front" for $34 - twenty of which was shipping - a few years ago. There were no other bids, and the listing, in the "everything else" category, made absolutely no sense - I seriously doubt the guy even knew it was a camera. I simply asked the seller if the picture was the actual item being offered. And that is how I got my 3.25 x 4.25 SpeedGraphic. :smile:
