    got my camera back from the shop
    they overhauled the interior, changed the flash ports to normal ones, and overhauled the lens, it had dust inside and was stiff to focus.

    oh and they recovered the skin or whatever it was that was peeling off.

    took that pic with a digital?
    if you mean a more professional body, as soon as i start taking more pics than i can keep up with. its not a matter of dollars and cents, but i only take about 6 or so rolls a month combined. i feel this isnt enough quantity. that and i truly hate batteries.

    that and your av made me say this
    fuck leicas flash sync speed

    shit AE1 is worth nothing, i had trouble giving away the 50/1.8 kit lens.
    (and i have the AE1-P)
    your deal depends on the lenses, even then 100 CAD sounds overpriced
    a chrome body should be $35 cad itself

    its coming along

    nothing. theres just millions of AE1 around, very common.
    price of film cameras is strictly supply demand.

    I'm going to say you forgot to put the big washer/tube underneath the funnel, and light leaked onto the reel.
