    when the clueless sell cameras

    I saw this listing on eBay ...
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=140385107312

    ... of a Retina Reflex being sold by a camera-clueless seller. The listing
    mentions that more pictures are available on request so I requested them.

    Here are 2 of the pictures of this item I received from the seller:

    There is going to be one very surprised, and very pissed, ebay buyer when this puppy gets unwrapped.

    It looks like the camera needs a lot of work.

    He's also got a Canonet QL 1.7. The neverready case is shot; perhaps it protected the camera though.

    I bought an Argus 21 from a local antique store for about $10. Ends up its worth about $80. I'd say thats a good deal!

    That's not clueless - that's out and out deceptive. It's one thing to say it may or may not work. It's quite another to show a picture that does not reflect the cosmetic condition. I feel like bidding on it just so I can give them their first "negative".

    As to the Canon case, they are often found in that condition even if the camera is in fine shape.

    The seller does admitin the fine print that they cannot test it and the consignor cannot say that the camera is fine so it is being sold as-is. But that's kinda buried. Not really on the deceptive side unless it has been changed since this thread was started.
    Thank you.
