Item details

This mid century gem is called the Readyflash because it is flash ready! Clever, eh? It has a sturdy metal body, plastic fittings, and a cute little handle. This Readyflash has some moderate wear on the plastic components, including a few small, light scratches and scuffs. There is also a small spot of red paint splatter on the handle. It takes 620 film, which is still sold by several online camera retailers. It has not been film-tested, but the shutter snaps when the little red lever is pressed.

Here's everything you need to know about shipping and delivery times...

DOMESTIC ORDERS (USA): All items in my shop are shipped domestically via USPS Priority Mail unless otherwise indicated. Priority Mail generally takes 2-3 days to reach its destination, and your orders are shipped 1-3 business days from date of payment.

Typewriters and other oversized items are shipped domestically via USPS Parcel Post, mainly because of their weight. Parcel post takes 1-2 weeks to reach its destination. If you need your typewriters faster, just convo us, and we'll get you a shipping quote for Priority Mail shipping.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: International customers, please note that the "Everywhere Else" shipping price denotes the price of USPS First Class shipping. First Class generally takes at least 2 weeks to reach most destinations overseas. I have one rate for international shipping on every listing, but if you live in Canada or Mexico, feel free to convo me for a revised quote, as your shipping will likely be cheaper. If you would like to upgrade your shipping to meet a special deadline, just convo us! We will be happy to provide you with multiple shipping quotes. Your order can always be upgraded to Priority International Mail (which takes 6-8 days) OR even Express International Mail (3-5 days).


Paypal or credit card payments processed by Etsy are our preferred method of payment.

Returns & exchanges

We have a record of excellent feedback from Etsy users worldwide, but in the event that you are unhappy with your item, please let us know within a reasonable amount of time. Depending on the gravity of your complaint we can either work out a partial refund, exchange, or discount towards the purchase of another item. Of course, we are always happy to refund your money on the initial cost of the item only, if you pay return shipping. A refund will be issued once the item is received.

Additional policies

A special note on vintage cameras:

Vintage cameras are one of the most frequent and popular items to enter and exit our store. Roll-film cameras (35mm film, etc.) have not all been film-tested, but have been checked to make sure their basic mechanical elements are functional (i.e. shutters trip, knobs wind, etc). If we cannot guarantee the basic functionality of a camera we will resignate it to "display piece only" status. However, our knowledge of these cameras is not always 100% complete, and a camera may sometimes be more functional than indicated.

Instant film cameras (POLAROIDS) fall into two categories:

600 film and SX-70 cameras HAVE been film-tested and are deemed functional unless otherwise indicated. Same rules apply as above.

Pack film cameras HAVE NOT been film-tested but are checked to make sure their mechanical elements are functional. They are also checked for battery corrosion if required.
