Second times a charm! I hope.... My ebay luck turned out to be 50/50. And i had to end up buying a second camera. 1st is on the left, and 2nd is on the right. But now i am the proud owner of a 1st production run SRT101 and a 2nd production run 101 in amazing condition. Very subtle differences between the two but just enough to figure it out. Time to buy some film, and see if the meter is accurate!
Lens is a standard 55mm 1.7 and is a very solid piece. Much more substantial than the nikon kit lens i used to shoot them.
Problem with camera #1 (left) was that the shutter does not work at speeds under 1/60. It does work on Bulb. Its light seals are shot, but i got the foam to fix that anyways. Aside from that, everything is perfect. I will probably find someone to CLA and hopefully fix it, so i have 2 working cameras, which would be nice.
Camera #2 has a much cleaner viewfinder and way less dust on the focus screen. And every shutter speed works which is great! The only test left is to find out if i have a working meter.... Also i gotta get some batteries, and/or that MR-9 adapter.
Beautiful looking cameras. I wish the black versions were easier to come by, but these will do.
Also, my second camera came with something really cool. Ill make a separate post about it later since ive yet to take a picture of what it is.
Any good recommendations on film to run? Black & White and color?
