I just bought a second hand Canon EOS 3 without having the chance to inspect it first. The body itself is in excellent (near new) condition. On opening the film compartment I noticed that there is some damage to the shutter curtain. As this is my first film SLR I am not sure how bad the damage is and whether it will affect the operation of the camera.
I have asked the seller why they did not disclose the fact that the shutter curtain was damaged. They have responded saying that they were not aware of the damage and that it must have occurred during shipping. I highly doubt this as the camera was relatively well packed in it's original box with padding around it, inside another cardboard box which shows no damage at all.
Could someone enlighten me about how bad the damage is and how I would test it? I do not have any film on hand at present.
