Found this piece a couple days ago, picked it up because it look like it was in good condition for only $24. I don't know if it works, I know next to nothing about TLR cameras. Ive been wanting one for sometime now. I ordered some film, I get it on Tuesday. Guess i'll find out then if this BEAST works. haha
An excellent price for that camera. I thought it was dented too, but looked at it from the top view, and in my archive, and it's designed that way. I've read you really need the instruction manual to fully understand the operations of the camera.
If she doesn't work and a CLA is out of reach. Give her a polish and put her on a shelf in plain view. It's a good looking camera. Either that or sell her to me for $25, and I'll make sure she gets shown off.
