My girl was way more excited about it that I was. She's really big into that artsy photo stuff and instagram. I do the usual silver-silverware stops once a week and usually just do that and leave. I will definitely wonder around a bit from now on before leaving. You never know. And ALWAYS check behind the boxes and in sealed boxes. I almost passed that camera by because it was behind a box of old cook books!!!
Oh and btw...I was looking through the manuals and all that and inside was an envelope for the warranty from the original owner. i guess he filled it out and never sent it off, but it was originally purchased in 2009, and was bought from the only camera specialty store in my town. He lived about an hour away. I could tell from the handwriting the guy was an older gent. He had the really precise and neat but shaky handwriting that my granddad has.
I love those old cameras. We have a yashica, Voigtlander, and some wooden pinholes displayed in our studio
