    how can I cover these cosmetic imperfections!!!...I don't like it at all.
    If i use a normal black pen (like the pen to write on the plastic of the cd)...it's very ugle because the two blacks aren't similar...and with the time the balck of the pen disappears...lefting the scratches and metal of the body visible.please help me!
    Give it up and send it to me.

    Non chip black nail varish is excellent for chips. I'm using black Japlac from Internatyional paints for larger areas.

    ian,
    i don't know about your local retailers, but in germany, i was able to buy ultra-flat black paint from a few manufacturers, and they worked well for what you're trying to do. i 'fixed my bargain nikon FMs with them.
    Regards

    Glossy paint, matte paint, paint to repair engraved numbers on lenses: it's all there.
    Thank you very much,Ikon!
    I think that it's the product I was searching for...!!!
    Did you use it sometimes?...Do these products work fine?
    Thank you very much.
    Ciao

    I've a last question:which of those products you would use to cover the scratches of a Canon F1 new body?
    Thank you for your patience?
    regards

    I use glossy and matt black camera paint (CF3-F and CF6-F), and they both work very well. First I tried them on some piece of aluminium to check the effect. For engraved numbers, I use white fill-in paint. This one needed some trial and error before I was happy with the result: you need to rub in the paint and wipe off the excess, which to me turned out to be not as easy as it seems. But after some practice it works well too.
    Good luck!

    I guess that depends on the finishing of the body. I used the paint mostly for some Leica R-lenses, where matte paint turned out to give the best results. But the best thing is to try the paint on a small piece of metal.
    Since the texture of both matte and glossy paints is the same, I believe it must be possible to mix them in order to get precisely what you need. But since it was not needed, I didn't try this myself.
    Regards

    Canon F1 new body is very very matt,the black seems almost a (dark) gray.

    If only my Contax RTS had more brassing. Fortunately, there are a couple of dents on the prism.
