I think this listing is bogus. The won't allow pickup. Then he wouldn't reply when I asked for serial #s.
Does anyone know Jeffrey Owens in Folkestone, Kent UK?
Am I wrong?

Seems indeed a fake or scam Ramon. Simply it is not possible for this price !
So be careful !

Also the Steadicam Flyer (with hard case + bats shown on picture with green background) is a much used scam, and the famous SK2 with a 7 inch lcd monitor on top of the green screen monitor is a scam !

Regular visitors on Ebay search for Steadicam, Steadycam + Glidecam know what I'm talking about..

So once again, be carefull guys !

ramon, with no serial numbers, no pick up and no feedback id be very carefull.
as Erik said there are several images that do the rounds of dodgy listings, however, i have not seen this one before. it seems too good to be true and probably is...

Definitely a fake.

This has been posted before, and I made a stupidly low bid (£1000) needless to say the price went higher, and 2 days after the end of the auction I got an e-mail offering me a 2nd chance at my bid price. Then another 2 days after that.

Now it's showed up again.

Stay clear.

It has already been removed...

Which tells me that the buyer is following the Forum and is specifically targeting Steadi-Newbies...

That's low from a brother...
