Condition notes
The camera is confirmed working. The light meter is responding to light but it is difficult to be certain if it is accurate as it doesn't provide an f-stop readout. We would recommend the use of more forgiving negative film (often available at International Film Brokers -- we have no affiliation with this company but we've heard good things about their service).
