I have a long history of buying items that no one else will bid on, and usually, they are better off for allowing me to throw my money away. Occasionally I will make some change, but I have discovered my true calling: buy junk that no one else wants, and I take the loss rather than they losing on the deal.
Case in point? I just bought a fabulous Kodak Imagelink microimager 70. Now the price I paid, as the only bidder, at the last second bidder, I will recover the purchase price just running it thru as shred. But it is an antique in computer years...you know that one or two years is practically equivalent to a generation in human years. So this 2005 machine, which looks like it is new,may have seen little if any use...the problem,is, I think it is too outdated. Not even sure what it does, but think it scans thru lenses on a turret, 3 different enlargement ratios, and and prints it on cassette/micro film? Doesn't seem to be much demand in the market, but I guess I will check for a few more days before scrapping it.

Can you post a photo? My guess is you’ve got the Kodak printing system for K digital cameras and digital feeds.

Yep. That’s a photo printer. Not an easy move and you’ having trouble finding it because they rarely show up used. Mix of peripheral to telco inside and a few mid grade boards. But as said earlier there’s some real resale value in parts if it powers up.

Is that something that I could use to print photos if it works? I thought I had read that it printed onto microfiche cassettes, but I sometimes get my research crossed when doing multiple unknown items.

I believe that’s a standard photo printer. Commercial printing wise
