    Even though this is a fully functioning camera I’m selling it as for repair or parts. The glass is clean and shutter sounds pretty darn good. I’m afraid to test the self-timer as I’ve noticed a lot of these that malfunction after the self-timer sticks. The advance works well and all and all this could be a solid camera with a good cleaning and tightening. The top and front plate seem loose but I can’t find a spot to tighten it up at all.

    Pictures show it pretty well, let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for your interest

    $50.00 shipped in the US

    If it is anything like the Demi S, which I repaired myself in the past (bad corrosion, funky deposits, and stuck shutter), there are four screws in the front under the leatherette by the edges. You probably only have to tighten one of them.

    Newt is right. And please leave the self-timer untouched. I have a box of Canon self-timer parts. They were notorious for breaking and leaving the camera paralyzed in the process. Lots of Canonets died from this, and in the Canonet the repair approaches the difficulty of vasectomy reversal (particularly if you've never read "The Doctor Book").
