    The hell is this guy smoking?

    http://shop.ebay.ca/merchant/tuaupe

    $289 for a Lubitel.... $300 for a useless old Kodak folder... the list goes on and on. These are $20 cameras he's listing for hundreds!

    Bizarre. Money laundering front or something?

    Some people have more brass than a marching band. Who knows though, someone might bite. A fool and his money etc.

    He's just one of the many sellers on ebay conspiring to drive up used camera prices way above current fair market prices.

    As fewer & fewer private sales are listed the gullible will believe the hype not realisng any better.

    Makes a smile on my face........... a month ago I bought an AX2 with flash for € 25,--, he is asking the tenfold.......
    I should sell some old gear to him and get me a gold RB.........

    @Ian: I don't think he can. He might have prices that are in no relationship with any reality, but nobody will buy.
    A waist of HD space as far as I'm concered.

    Looking at the three auctions you can view in his feedback, I'd say he is doing OK.

    $353.36 for a Canon AE-1-p. He must be on something. He doesn't even include a lens!!

    Hmmm. A Graflex film pack adapter--a truly valueless item--$150. Watson bulk loader, $150? Uh, aren't those available new for 1/5 the price?

    A check of his "completed listings" shows two items actually sold.

    Well, there's no doubt about it—some people are idiots about buying on eBay, and they keep sellers like this one in business. I don't know how often I've seen a book go for more than the price on Amazon.com, or a camera-related item go for more than the price at b&h. Ditto with overpriced sheet film which people are buying on auction (why would someone buy sheet film from eBay anyway?). And somebody must be buying those overpriced Holgas that clog up the listings of 8x10 and larger cameras.
