Good Day APUGers!
I've gotten a couple cameras from my Dad and I wish to make sure I give him at least fair market value.
The Kodak is in fine working order. The lens are clear and shutter speeds sound right (will test with film when I get a chance). Bellows appear in surprising shape and I could detect no cracks or pinholes using the light in a darkened room test. It has a scuffed leather "Retina Ia" case.
Argus Instant Load 120, I need to find a new battery for it before I can check if all functions work. The lens are clear, focus and shutter rings move smoothly, don't feel loose or wobbly. As you move the focus ring a indicator inside the view finder moves from one side to the other (landscape to group to portrait). What appears to be a simple light meter on the top of the camera is not stuck (jiggles a bit when the camera moves, but I believe without a fresh battery, I can't tell if it works. It comes with a (I believe) faux leather case with "argus" embossed into it.
So people what do you think,? Anyone willing to offer a rough estimate, or a quick and dirty guesstimate?
