Item details

This kit has some issues, so why not use them to your advantage?

The shutter blades in the lens are stuck at wide open - 1:1.8 aperture that is. Other than that focusing works splendidly and it is sharp and free of dust or scratches.

The camera body works as it should - shutter times and light meter - but the peg-thing that communicates with lenses at the moment of exposure is stuck. Which makes this body the perfect partner for the lens.

You take pictures wide open, at 1.8, adjusting the shutter time only. And I've added an ND8 filter which when you screw it on puts the "aperture" at 5,6, for your convenience.

The happy buyer gets: A clean camera body; new light seals; 50 mm lens; new 6v battery; strap; a 100 ASA b&w Fomapan film.


The light seals of cameras are meticulously replaced and new batteries are added for instant usage.


A note on the condition of the product: I clean lenses and viewfinders as much as possible, but they are not disassembled to be cleaned. There is almost always dust inside viewfinders, but it is very rarely a problem. Light meters are always tested, but not for perfect accuracy. There is always a comment on the condition of the light meter if there is a problem. If you use a battery of a higher voltage than intended light meters will show different results. I replace all light seals on the cameras I sell. ALL old light seals are a potential source of dust and smear inside the camera when older than 30 years. On some models light might seep onto the film if the seals are old and shrunken. The camera you buy is ready to use the instant you load it with a roll of film.


The product you buy is vintage, which means it may have been used and also the materials have aged consequently. Consider these facts when ordering a vintage product.


Shipping cost is often miscalculated by Etsy when orders of two or more products are placed. Contact me for proper shipping cost estimates. Shipping time overseas from Europe is in most cases 10-15 work days.


A note on batteries: Most vintage cameras are sold without batteries. Often batteries are a hassle to get hold of. getOurBooks supplies you purchase with the correct battery.
