General Condition: 

The body is in overall good condition, with minor signs of previous use.

The original leather covering is in very good condition. 

The focusing hood works great as it should.


Both  lenses are in good condition without fungi, haze or  separation.

There are some light cleaning marks on the taking lens that have no effect on the picture quality (check the picture gallery taken with the camera in our final test)

The Synchro-compur shutter has been cleaned and re-lubricated  and now works very well at all speeds. 

The self timer is operational .

The flash connection has been tested and works fine.

What we've done:

We did a full overhaul of the camera.

The front and the optical elements have been disassembled and cleaned up.

The cranking system  has been fully overhauled, cleaned up, lubricated and tested.

Same for the focussing system which has been adjusted after full overhaul, cleaning and lubrication.

We fully checked the camera and all movements are  fine.


  • Particularity of the Compur-Rapid shutter:  do not try to select the shutter speed at 1/500 when the shutter is cocked! It will not be possible, so please do not force it. If you want to select 1/500, you must not advance the film to the next shot prior to do so.First engage it on 1/500 before cocking the shutter/advancing the film. Also if you are at 1/500 and want to set another speed, do it before cocking.
