I show 3 pictures I took with this camera. This is my personal kit that I collected over 6 years for myself, saving the best pieces I came across. The Polaroid #32 8 case is in good condition, with some marks on the interior and exterior.
This camera is in excellent working and cosmetic condition and has been fully tested with Fuji & Polaroid Film. Couple of small issues with this camera is the latch to open the film back, will sometimes pop up out of place. I have used this camera like this for over a year. I just made sure to push it in place after each shot. This can easily be fixed by a good camera shop for a small charge.
The shutter in the M mode (flashbulbs) sticks. This mode is only use with flashbulbs. The metal finish is vey clean with no pitting or bubbling. The lens is in excellent condition with no fungus, smudge marks , or dust.
It even has all the metal cosmetic trim on it! The bellows on the camera is original and is light tight, and does not sag or show any signs of separation. The "X" Sync works fine. The self-timer is also working on this camera, the "V" mode.
Most do not as they are rarely used. This 180 was also tested with both flashbulbs and an electronic flash to make sure the PC Socket works. All the shutter speeds are also working on this 180. The Zeiss view/range finder is clear and the rangefinder is dead accurate and properly aligned.
Inside the rollers are clean and there is no rust on the roller bracket. Lens: 114mm, f/4.5, 4 Element Tominon Tessar type. Shutter: Seikosha leaf shutter, 1 - 1/500 sec uses EV system.
Flash: M and X sync. Built-in self-timer ("V" setting on flash sync lever). Manual exposure with f stop from 4.5 to 90. Camera is super clean and ready to take pictures.
Why take a chance on an un-tested camera that may or may not work. It sure is fun using these old Polaroid Cameras!Please check my other auctions for more Polaroid's and accessories. What to expect when purchasing a Polaroid camera from me. The camera is thoroughly checked to be sure everything functions as it should. The camera is thoroughly cleaned inside and out with a disinfectant wipe.
Optics and viewfinders are cleaned and checked for any fungus or misalignment. The camera is either converted to my AAA battery converter with fresh Alkaline batteries, or a new stock battery or batteries are installed. I test the camera with fresh Fuji FP-100C color film to check the exposure control and to make sure it focuses at the closest distance and also infinity. The 2 pictures you see are the results and are included with the camera. I disclose any defects, if any with the camera, usually in bold print.
I tell you what the exposure control needs to be set to get great pictures. When I have more than one of the same model for sale, the higher price cameras are usually in better cosmetic condition.
