sure it makes a dandy shelf ornament. it doesn't matter whether it works because film is not available for it. as with anything used or antique, appearance is everything, and having all original parts including box and instructions adds a premium. a film enthusiast might get it to work, but it would require hand loading 16mm double perf film in a darkroom, and finding a custom developing lab to process it. an hour of shooting and developing would run over $300 as compared to $3 for miniDV which has superior quality.
