I've gotten in the habit of checking out the local Value Village after dropping my wife off at work. I went on Friday, didn't find anything, and guiltily went back on Saturday. Sitting at the top of the bin of cheap/garbage cameras was a Olympus DC35 for $10. My obsessive compulsive side pays off for a change. Cosmetically, it was in great shape. The glass looked good, the meter seemed accurate and the shutter fired nicely. However, the rangefinder patch didn't move while focusing. Nine hours later, I have it working again. The mirror pivot just needed some cleaning as it was stuck from old lubricants from the looks of it. I did some cleaning while I was in there - the rangefinder is now nice and bright. It still needs new light seals (I haven't done that one yet - I'd like to learn how without using a kit) so it isn't quite ready for use. Just holding it though, I already prefer it to the Hi-Matic E. I think the 35DC maybe replacing as my automatic rangefinder.
