Item details

This is an authentic vintage Chinon CE-4s camera outfit from 1980 in absolutely mint condition. This outfit has all the accessories you would want for all your photography needs. I just tested every piece of this equipment today and everything works like new. All of this equipment was purchased new by me as a built the kit. It features the Chinon CE-4s 35MM SLR body; it's compact design was ahead of it's time and it marked the first time that Chinon used the Pentax quick connect bayonet lens mounting. I went top of the line all the way with complimenting the body; top of the line PW-535 power winder with interval timer; the Osawa 80-200mm zoom lens, the Tokina 28-70mm wide angle zoom lens, Vivitar 283 electronic flash with synchronization, a Zykkor 2X tele converter and a branded padded strap. I've even included the original Kiwi padded bag to hold everything which is also in mint condition. I will list the camera specs below after this ad. This is a wonderful piece of camera history great for any collector, museum or Japanese camera buffs. I've reasonably priced the kit so that it can be kept together as a unit as I carefully selected each piece to compliment the rest. The lenses alone are worth more than my asking price. I also have all the user manuals for the pieces. Shipping is by USPS to the continental US only. Thanks very much for looking.
