This time, this camera has a few scratches on the back side

of the exterior, but other than that,

the black color shines like a piano.

It works fine and the remote control that comes with it works fine.

About the LCD、When the remaining power of the main battery gets low the second digit of the film counter number may become difficult to read.

The case has not deteriorated over time and is clean.

The weight of the camera is moderate and does not bother one hand.

Please take this camera out with you.

And experience the splendor of a film camera!
