Do you have the link?
What person could be so ignorant?
Seems there might be a lucrative business
Finding cheap Scoopic and reselling them highly overpriced.

Kind of a geeky girl thing I think. That's my theory.

(First of all, these are 16mm Scoopics, not 8mm Scoopics).
I've been watching Scoopics on ebay for about 3 years now, and nice MS models go for high dollars (usually $1000 - 41,500-ish), but I agree, this is stupid.
I got my M for $331, and I could get it crystal synced for $500.
This guy's camera isn't going to make any better images than mine (same lens).
I wonder what a Scoopic modified to a PL mount would fetch?
I wonder if it's even possible?

I think the Scoopic MS models go for so much, because people get all excited about the possibility of using the mag adapter & being able to shoot 400ft loads.
In reality, that rig makes it an unwieldy beast, negating the whole 'run & gun" aspect of the Scoopic.
The only reason I'd want one, is that it has the behind the lens filter slot.
I'm always on the lookout for an MS gate, so I can do that with my M.
