We have discussed this ebay seller in the past on the auction forums-He always holds up his radios with 1 hand and takes his photos with the other.

This looks like a really heavy KENNEDY set-this fellow must have muscles like Arnold S.

I suspect he photo-shops them all. That pic seems to look more obvious than others I've seen.

If he did, he sure paid a lot of attention to the details... look at the shadows cast by the knobs on his wrist.

What do you mean? He photo-shops the pics to put his hands in them? Why the hell would he do that?

If he is doing that, he should quit selling radios, and go into film....

All of the radios he sells are pictured the same way, with him holding the radio up in one hand against a sunny green backyard background. It's kind of a marketing\branding thing that sets his store & auctions apart from all others. Personally, I think it's a really cool idea. The photograpy all looks great.

I just find it hard to believe some of those pics are done by physically balancing a heavier radio in one hand and taking a perfect photo with the other. If I wanted to keep my auction pics consistant, it wouldn't be hard to photoshop a bigger radio against the same background.

Well, here's a 1st-this seller has 2 of his 15 listings on a TV tray. I have noticed the background in his photos does change and I think he really does hold up the smaller radios for someone to photo.

For sale currently, this AK breadboard. I don't know what these weigh but they look heavy:

Not teriffically heavy but you'd sure shed a tear if you dropped it.
