    just resized them, didnt bother touching the photos, (except the last i made it a little less glarey)


    this would be a cool camera and everything seems to be relatively functional except the bottom cap is missing and i have no idea about the internal workings of this thing, its pretty cool looking though IMO and ill keep it around for decor

    i figure ill keep it around and if i ever find a place that can service antique cameras ill take it in for a rebuild (if rebuildable) if its not too spendy, itd be nice to have authentic 16mm photos for artistic purposes.

    You can try Blue Moon or Hollywood Camera up in Portland. If they can't help you, they migh be able to point you in the right direction.

    I work at a camera repair shop myself...and to be quite honest, you'll be VERY lucky to find anyone to service that.

    Regardless, that's pretty interesting.
