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.
