    Put in new batteries--meter checks.

    Cleaned and greased O-rings and channels, submerged in fresh water--check.

    First post here. Latest acquisition is quite un-exciting however I am learning to enjoy it. Olympus Infinity/AF-1 rescued from an antique store for $3. Battery still worked. Changed out some of the corroded light seals and works like a charm. Ready to run the first roll through some tetenal and feed through the Kodak pakon.

    Not a bargain but an interesting find in a charity shop - an Argus C3 1950 - 54 with a used film inside labelled "made in USA" (I'm in the UK). Not an especially old film, as it has DX coding, but it's only 12 exp so maybe not that modern. Must get the film developed!

    Totally manual Nikormat FT-3 Tank

    I bought this for $20 at antique shop just because all the different manual shutter speeds worked
    and it had a nice Nikor 28mm AIS lens. This thing must have gears and wheels spinning around
    inside from the sound it makes when you select from 1 second all the way to 1 /1000th of a second.

    I have not put a battery into it yet to see if the meter works but the mechanics of the shutter
    totally blows me away. I could see myself purchasing a separate light meter and using
    this camera totally manually if I find that I can buy film and have it developed for a reasonable
    cost. This camera should function for at least another hundred years. It seems like a tank
    and is very heavy giving a very rugged impression.
