    The camera works fine, everything moves as it should and the shutter speeds seem accurate enough. There's a fair amount of pitting on the metalwork (see picture). There's also a little bit of bellows evident in the film gate, but in use this has only required a slight crop when scanning to eliminate. This camera has an interlock between the film advance and the shutter release, has red window aligning of exposures.

    Some pictures taken with this camera:

    If I didn’t already have one of these recently overhauled by Zacks Camera, I’d be right on it. Did you do the bellows replacement yourself? Looks nice.

    Thanks Stan. The bellows are by Sandeha Lynch. Very nicely done.

    Dropping the price to $90 plus shipping by Priority.

    $60 plus shipping. That’s less than the cost of the bellows.
