The cover is not all that pretty but functional. The basics of the camera are in near perfect condition but there are a couple issues which are noted below. I would not consider this a collector or display piece due to the replacement parts but it is a Near Perfect shooter. The shutter works perfectly in mode "X" as it should.This is the standard or normal mode. It does not work properly in the "M" or "V" modes. These two are not needed. The "M" is for shooting flash bulbs and the "V" is a self-timer. The "X" will work fine with an electronic flash which has a pc connector cord. In place of the "V" or self-timing mode I will send a Polaroid self-timer #192 along so you can produce those selfies. I did not have an original cover therefore I molded a protective cover by heating the plastic and forming a pocket to cover the lens. Works fine but it isn't very pretty. (2nd to last photo) The left focus knob #1 is missing from the left side as you face the camera. It does not effect focusing since there is an exact duplicate #1 button on the right side.
You simple will focus with right shift button. (p lease see the last photo for a visual description). Due to these conditions it is not Perfect. Of course I want to shoot these before the release.
