Ingmar Bergman, the dark and serious Swedish filmmaker, influenced moviemaking as we know it with his stark and epic black-and-white style. A couple weeks ago, you could have purchased a little chunk of that genius: one of his movie cameras was on the auction block. Sure, it was a nice Canon, but it was a Super8, probably not something used in filmmaking, but valuable nonetheless. The auction expected to bring in a couple hundred bucks, but ended up selling for $5,000.
