    Thought I'd give you guys a heads up before throwing them up for sale elsewhere. Both of these are in outstanding condition, as shown in the pics.

    Here's some information on both:

    Rollei 35, Made in Germany w/ Rollei flash, 1967-1975

    Comes with:
    -Rollei 35
    -Original strap
    -Rollei flash
    -Zeiss UV filter
    -Original manuals for both camera and flash

    All Rollei 35 models share the same basic body with the same quirky features:
    • Shutter speeds, f/stops, and focus distance are easily seen in a top view.
    • Shutter speeds 1/2 second to 1/500th, plus B for Tessar and Sonnar lenses camera, 1/30th to 1/500 for Triotar lensed cameras.
    • Bright Albada finder with NO automatic parallax compensation
    • Scale focusing, no rangefinder in this camera.
    • Collapsible lens. Shutter must be advance to collapse lens. When you pull it out, remember to lock the lens in place by twisting it.
    • F/stops and Shutter speeds separately set on front mounted dials
    • Left hand advance lever
    • Removable back for film loading

    They go on eBay for $250-300, and aren't ever in this kind of condition. I'll let it go for $250 shipped.

    Canon Auto-Zoom 814 Super 8 camcorder

    Comes with:
    -Original strap
    -Original box
    -Original user manual
    -UV filter

    The classic 814 Auto Zoom, a legendary sturdy Super 8m Canon camera, built like a tank and in satin chrome color, including the original Canon hardshell case and strap. Equipped with Canon's excellent optics and with 12fps, 18fps, 24fps speeds more than up to date. The same model has been used for the U2 "Live from Boston" Elevation Film along with other professional cameras.

    Many professional photographers relied on this model since then and it is still the number one choice in many film schools for two simple reasons: 1. Simplicity and 2. Reliability. Currently available at Pro8mm as "special edition", here is the classic in its original, untouched condition.

    They go for $200-250 on eBay, I'll let it go for $225 shipped. This one would obviously cost a bit more to ship.

    :coolugh:
    I've used it once and loved it, it seems to be kind of the "standard" for super 8 stuff, like the K1000 for 35mm cameras
