Hi everyone
I came across this camera which is priced at $200.00. I had previously bought a couple of Fed 2 cameras from this lady for a much lower price than could be found elsewhere-she was selling her grandfather's cameras. The fellow had been a professional photographer and collector. Well, I had to ask why this camera was priced so, and she pointed me here: http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/FED/FED-Zorki.html
She also included these photos,which were much better than the ones on her listing. I am still puzzled-I cannot see what she sees to justify the price, although I didn't tell her that because she can price it where she wishes. Can anyone tell me what I am missing here?
She calls it a Fed Zorki, by the way. I have no intention to buy the camera,but I am curious about it.

Looks like just a regular $50 Zorki, nothing FED-Zorki about it . The collectiblend does have a picture of real FED-Zorki and $200 is a very fair price for one if you ever find it, it's lately going for $500-$600 range...

Cheers,
Vlad

Thanks Vlad. It seems no matter what one collects there are always those sellers who learn just enough to think they have something of great value on their hands. The lady in question was not greedy based on the deal she gave me-just mistaken about this camera. I imagine someone will eventually help her identify it properly. Or someone might buy it at that price
