    Creaky Mamiya C330--Need Advice!

    Some years ago I bought a C330 that simply sat on the shelf until now.

    Shooting a test roll I find it has a light leak and a film-advance problem. I suspect that a technician might find something else wrong with it.

    My question is, is this camera worth repairing, considering that I don't want to get into big bucks?

    Nothing much wrong with it that a little fix-up and lube won't fix. It's a GREAT camera.

    A light leak and a film advance problem points to the back not latching correctly. Both corners need to be pressed down. If the takeup spool does not mate with the film advance gear, the frame spacing will be off. There could be an actual fault, but it is unlikely if it was functioning when it was last used.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    Great camera & lens, a little larger than other TLR, other than that, fine picture taking machine.
