condition: good
make / manufacturer: Zeiss, Canon
Two clean vintage cameras, both icons of their time.
1961 Canon P the M3 of Canons. In great shape it just needs the shutter synced. There’s a set screw under the bottom plate that adjusts the shutter, I’ve seen videos on U Tubes. The lens is clean and moves smoothly.
The Contax is clean and seams to work however it needs a no shutter, the shutter is cloth and wears out. I looked into it and replacement shutters are available and it is a doable repair. The lens Zeiss 50mm is beautiful.
With a little love these cameras would be worth at least $200 each with just the lenses going for around $150 on EBay.
Contact me with any questions.
Thanks Jeff H.
