Regular price $101.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This is a nice, tank-like SLR that uses the very common M42 lens mount (used in Pentax Spotmatic SLRs and many other types). It's in great working condition. All shutter speeds are working with good accuracy. It includes a sharp Auto Cosinon 55mm F2.8 lens that is in very good condition. A leather half-case is also included. 

Add-ons
If you opt for camera only, one battery will be included (and installed); if you choose '+ battery' an extra zinc air battery will be added; if you choose '+ battery & film' you'll also get a 24-exposure roll of FujiColor 200 film will be added.

Condition notes
The camera is good working condition however its light meter is under-sensitive by approximately one stop*; it was tested with film and delivered sharp, correctly exposed images. In addition, its shutter speeds travel time and symmetry. It's is in good aesthetic condition except for some wear on the body (see photos); the included ever-ready case also has considerable wear. 
*Note on light meter. To compensate for the light meter's approximately one stop inaccuracy you can either set the film speed higher or read the meter as shown in this image:
