WARNING: THIS CAMERA HAS A FAULTY METER BATTERY CONTACT


Now that you have read the disclaimer above I can give a rundown of the camera.

I bought it recently and accidentally broke the small metal battery contact off when fitting the battery for exposure metering. This happened before I took any shots so I have not tested the meter for other issues although the previous owner said it was working accurately. I have run a roll through the camera and it functions perfectly, just doesn't give you a meter reading. The viewfinder is bright and clear except for some dust spots. Someone has done a DIY repaint at some stage which doesn't look the best when the light hits it.

I am very disappointed as I was really looking forward to keeping this for a while but I want a built in meter. It would be perfect for someone who wants a solid SL2 for use (not collection) but can work without a light meter.

Please PM me if you are interested and I can give you some photos and feedback to check
