Camera has been film tested and is working perfectly. Comes with 90 day warranty See below for technician evaluation:
Cosmetic condition: In Very Good Condition with average marks and scratches in various places throughout the camera. The viewfinder is clean with no visible specs or dust. Rangefinder patch is bright and accurate, easy to line up for focus.
Film transport gears: Good - Advance lever moves forward precisely and advances film smoothly.
***We ran two several test rolls through the camera. On each roll there were instances where the shutter properly fired and then needed to be pressed a second time in order to advance to the next frame. The initial firing of the shutter properly exposed the image. Pressing the shutter for the second time had no impact on the exposure and did not actually fire the shutter, so there is no risk of double exposure. It was merely to release the advance gear for whatever reason and had no negative effect on the image results.***
Every other aspect of the camera's functionality is in excellent condition and working perfectly in every other way.
Shutter speeds: Excellent - Tested as accurate at all speeds.
Light Meter: Excellent working. Built in light meter is a selenium cell type. It was tested against a professional external meter and read light accurately in all lighting conditions.
