Hi guys, I'm looking to buy my first 16mm camera and am on a budget and I just need a little advice on a purchase.
*Eclair NPR converted to Super16*
The camera is working fine, mechanics in perfect condition. Completely review and modified at Super 16 mm in the year 2000.
Turret comes with Arry b mount, Eclair standard mount, and C mount.
Very low noise: at 3 feet is almost imperceptible.
Modified the old single bracket mount with a new double bracket mount for all Arri standard matte-boxes and all Arri standard follow-focus
The external camera body looks quite good, but, obviously, it has normal signs of many years of usage.
1 Eclair NPR super 16mm and standard 16mm, with crystal motor variable speed
2 400 feet magazines modified for Super 16mm film
1 Angenieux viewfinder
2 Light/wt support
1 Angenieux zoom lens 12-240
1 Angenieux zoom lens 10-150
1 C to Nikon adapter
1 Filter holder with ret/ring
2 Black Pelican cases
1 Power cable
charger for 110 and 230 volts. The battery is a Nikel Cadmium pack inside metallic case.
US$2,500 (no bids yet)
it seems like a good price to me, but then there's shipping costs US$400 plus i dont know what else I'd need to buy...
I'd appreciate ANY advice except from the person who is selling

Well it's s16 so it'll probably skyrocket towards the close of the auction. Also, demand will likely be higher now, because students are gearing up to shoot summer projects, so I wouldn't expect it to stay close to 2500. The best advice might be to do your research, look at other reputable dealers like Visual Products, compare the price to other closing prices on Ebay, and make your own decision from that. Then watch the auction and see if the price stays reasonable and within your budget.
