Ebay is a steep learning curve. A lot of sellers simply have no idea about the things they are selling and become quite confused when questioned about descriptions. There are others who get a you by not describing the dodgy bits. I quickly found out that a camera described as not being tested with film means that it doesn't work! Also I haven't checked the meter as I don't have a battery- yes you guessed it! I must say though that I have had a lot of very positive experiences on Ebay and even made some good friends.
