    Platinum plated Burke & James ?

    Unless this camera is platinum plated or has bits and pieces made of Osmium, the seller is smoking rope!

    Yeah, I see things like this on ebay from time to time. Some of them try high prices just to see if it'll fly. THIS one is so out there that it's hard to imagine what he's thinking though!

    Never afraid to ask too much for one of his prize collectibles, he says. Rare and one of a kind, he says. Desperately hoping for that one prize sucker, I says...

    Politically, aerodynamically, and fashionably incorrect.

    Hey!!! I called dibs last week!

    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...12&postcount=9


    Just need to sell some prize collectibles to afford it...I have a Magic 8 Ball I'll let go for a mere $1355, if anyone's interested.


    Edit: to shy away from the sarcasm for a brief moment, the seller's other items don't seem as outlandishly priced, so maybe he is genuinely confused about the value of his stuff? Then again, his embedded disclaimer (not afraid to ask for too much, prize collectible, etc) tends to indicate he knows he's pulling a fast one...

    Edit II: At least the stuff he was selling last week wasn't overpriced. But if he wants that much for a "vintage" Fossil leather bag, I guess he's just a wishful thinker or skilled scammer.

    Misplaced decimal point?
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.
