Retina II Preservation
I'm in the process of cleaning out all camera stuff...for the most part. However, I have a Retina II with Auto-Up that is in really excellent condition. It belonged to my Father-in-law, so we are reluctant to give it up. I am considering putting it away as a memento for my 17 year old son to have years from now.
The camera is currently working just fine, but I have heard that these cameras are subject to locking up if not exercised on a regular basis.
My question is, what can I do to preserve this camera in storage for what may be a couple of decades and hope to keep it working?
As I type that, it seems like a silly/impossible request...but, I'll ask anyway.
Any great ideas?
(I should add, this camera had a CLA about 5 years ago)
