Hi all,

I finally found a cheap rangefinder (Minolta Hi-Matic 9 with 45/1.7) on the weekend but the blades are stuck (so I realised at 9pm when the film came out of the tank transparent). Great camera but repair cost is $150 and replacement value is $60.

I lack the patience and fine motor skills to try fixing it myself, but feel a nostalgic obligation not to dispose of it! So what do you do with a camera needing a repair that exceeds its value?
