    What gets me is the often very poor quality photos of the camera being listed. The buyer often saying ... ''this camera has given me some really great photos over the years'' !!
    Digital photography is like virtual sex........ you never actually touch the real thing..... or get your hands dirty

    Unfortunately for some, it's the all-american way! Mark something up 400% and wait to see if some nimrod will pay the price.

    And, no - I've never worked in a jewelry store.

    If I don't like the listing, I move on. There is one guy in particular that I would bid on his camera items, but the photos in the listing are obviously taken with a cheap digi shooter, and the pictures are out of focus and highlights blown out. If this guy can't take a decent picture of a lens, he doesn't know anything about camera gear.

    Just saw a decent picture on the bay of a tripod/head at a really good BIN price-then I looked at his rating. 75%!! My dog was very startled when I suddenly blurted quite loudly "Aw, HELL No!!

    Y'all need a life. Getting upset at posted values on EBay? EBay is toast. There is no EBay anymore. I have a 240 rating and haven't bought a thing in two or three years.

    It was fun while it lasted. I am a professional bottom feeder but the values just are not there so EBay sellers don't even get a look anymore.

    The sad part is I live in San Jose, I have friends who work for EBay and they don't bother to play either.

    It's just sad.

    The big problem is the general population thinks "Old = Expensive!" They have no idea that most of what they are selling is so darn common that it's value is low.

    But it is aged like a fine wine and that is what drives up the price!
