They're very unique looking. I want sold on them at first. I wanted a Mamiya Six, but was having trouble finding inner in good shape for a decent price. Found a Super Fujica with a clean lens and decent mechanics. A little brassing. If I end up loving it enough, I might strip the chrome. Leatherette is peeling a tiny bit. Need to reglue that.Saw a few of them in the camera stores in Shinjuku. They look like 70's spaceships. Doesn't look like the chrome ages well though.
Any experience stripping cameras?
Welcome to the club. I feel this camera is a secret and when it's discovered in the west, positives will skyrocket. I paid 159 USD for mine after shipping from Japan.I've just bought one.
Mine was in excellent condition but I still probably over paid. Even so, it was a third of what an 'as is' Super Isolette tends to go for. Came with a cased lens hood too.
Please do that write up. I look forward to seeing it.I have experience stripping cameras of chrome...I plan to do a brief write up of the process.
I tend to dislike leather cases! Do you find the camera to be heavy? Awkward in any way?
