I had the same experience! It was my first at home camera repair, and it went so well I was inspired to try my hand with other cameras. I have the Samoca III with original hood (with case) + filter set. It's currently not working, but I'm sure I could fix it myself. Get one and play with it! Mine was capable of making images that surprise me even today. I'll link a sample if I can find one.
