Beautiful black leather on the outside, clean on the inside, and in working condition.

This is the PERFECT camera for a collector; it would look amazing on a shelf full of vintage cameras, or on its own.

I say "on a shelf" because despite it being in operable condition; I can't think of a good advantage in using this camera; there's a dial at the top left (when looking at the front) where you approximate distance to focus. You don't focus by looking through the viewfinder and adjusting the lens. This is very typical of cameras from this era. The focus therefore is never entirely accurate... I've made photos with a similar style camera and the effect is perfectly lovely, soft focus and the real 'vintage Instagram' look, though you'd be better to do this with a larger negative, like the medium format bellows-style camera also in my shop, because 120 film makes this lush, gorgeous color and detail you won't get on the smaller 35mm frame.

Anyway, for an addition to a collection or as home decor, GORGEOUS, for trying out vintage cameras and using them, I have a better option right here in my shop :)
