OK; I now have at least 2 working DCS200 backs, one I bought with a camera, one I bought as part of a batch of 3 backs for $US 12. I have not tested the other 2 in that batch yet. One is missing the battery holder. They turn on, you can take photos and hear them being written to the hard disk, and t...

Well, it's been relisted as a "Make an Offer" listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0052419032

It is missing the door for the ISO etc settings, the rubber cover for the video out port etc.

Might be worth an offer, if you don't have one already.

Cheers,
Ross

It will be interesting to see if it sells....

I now have my eBay (US) E3s. It is in almost mint condition, and works. Hooray! Serial number 8200046, the first E3s on the list in that batch I think.

Cheers,
Ross

Yes, it's me. I emailed him asking if he was certain it was a CIR model, and if so, how, and pointing out that the CIR and normal models are different. It was obviously a genuine error on his part, and he sent me a very nice email as well as putting that link in the listing.

Cheers,

I'm not spending that much time on eBay, it was pure good luck. I do, now and then when I have 5 minutes to spare, run a search for camera, buy it now, with most recently listed coming up first, and scan the first few pages. This is on the theory that people probably sometimes list interesting thing...

This same camera was repeatedly listed at very high starting prices earlier in the year, and attracted no bids. I was all set to snipe bid it but it went over my maximum. I now have an E2N, an E3, and an E3S, need an E2, E2s and E2Ns to complete the set. The E3S and E2N are in transit and I will rep...

Amazing price, for sure. I am going to keep that one on my watch list for a while and see if the winner ends up being a nonpayer. Another one has been listed with DCS 460 CIR in the title, and a description, clearly copied from the web somewhere, of a 460 CIR, but the camera in the photos has a labe...

For people in the USA this is clearly an idea worth following up. Just out of curiousity (since I am usually not in the USA) I had a look for government liquidation sales using google, found several, and in less than 1/2 hour of time wasting found this: http://cgi.govliquidation.com/auction/view?id=...

Hi, Jarle It would certainly be worth trying with a 20/3.5. It seems to be somewhat unpredictable exactly how well it will work; I have tried with a number of lenses and so far the 20/2.8 is best in terms of focuses almost to infinity and the image circle is big but still entirely within the frame. ...

I won't be able to say anything for a month or more yet--it went to my in-laws' in the USA, and I will pick it up when we next visit them, in October. Frustrating, but it saves a lot on postage. I'm certainly looking forward to having a go with it; scanning cameras suggest some interesting possibili...

Very nice article; I enjoyed it. I also enjoy fisheye photography; there are numerous examples, mostly full-frame or remapped to panoramas using Panorama Tools, on my Pbase site. It is worth experimenting with the FC-E8, which is an extremely high quality optic, mounted on a DSLR wideangle lens. I b...

I bought a Coolpix 100 a while ago for $A 7; it was advertised as not working, but it turned out that the only problem was that someone had used a computer to delete images, leaving the memory card needing to be reformatted. It is certainly fun to play with, but the image quality leaves a lot to be ...

Congratulations, John I was following both those auctions--looks like good deals on both (fingers crossed that the 460 works). I would definitely think the 460 will become your "user". It has spectacularly good resolution, I think 1800-2000 lines/picture height, and as long as you don't underexpose,...
