    Canonet QL 17 GIII - ready to use

    Hello.

    Finally my cams are ready. I replaced the light seals, cleaned all inside out and adjusted the horizontal viewfinder.

    The last thing I did was mounting new leather (I removed the QLIII sign at the front).

    I owned the himatic7SII and the Konica Auto S3 which both cannot compete with the canonet.

    The left is for b/w, the right cam I use for slides.

    More information with some further links (repair advice, manuals, battery problem, leather) http://www.blog.still-dancing.com/20...net-ql17-giii/

    Very nice job! I recently managed the seal replacement and batt. conversion on a QL17 given to me and shot a roll of TMAX 400. I really like the camera. Cosmetically, mine is in great shape though I recently discovered the film advance lock is not working. I haven't decided yet whether to risk going inside to try and fix it, or just learn to live with it.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Remove the leather and the rest is very easy.
