Craigslist "Gem", and a question....

So I came across this ad on Craigslist, which I scan a few times a day for Nikon stuff (SB-800 or 80-200 F/2.8 AF-S anyone?) It is for a Nikon D50 that the seller says they can't seem to make it work.

I bought a Nikon D50 6.1 Megapixel Digital Camera on eBay for my Real Estate Career, but never can make it work. I have no clue what is wrong with it, and I would like to sell it now as is for $150. Even if you spend some money to fix it, I think this is still a good deal.

The deal includes:
- EN-EL3e Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery
- UC-E4 USB Cable
- MH-18a Quick Charger
- Car Charger Cable
- Body Cap
- Sakar Digital shoulder bag
- Instructions and Guides
- PictureProject 1.5 CD
- Carry Strap



* Location: Kirkland - Bothell
It also includes these 3 photos.

The question is......

Do you know why his pictures never come out right?

Anyone care to guess? I think I have the answer, and it is a really good one!

Ha I saw this too.

Think all he's been doing is taking the body cap off and taking pics?
Should we tell him?

Yes, that is what I thought he/she might be doing. Tempting to email the seller and see if he/she has a lens available for it too. The question alone may prompt a palm slap to the forehead.....



ETA: I sent an email to the seller, asking about any lenses available for sale too. I'll update if hilarity ensues.....
