Well, THAT sounds pretty good. Much damage?

So, I recently acquired this, and I think I am going to try some 35mm again! If I can fix a minor issue and find a battery for it I think it will work just like it should! I would be interested to know if any of the experts have any advice for that?

Originally I just thought it was a pretty curio, but I think I'll give old-skool a try again...

Oh I've been all over that site, I found the manual and stuff, and learned how to understand the range finder and the exposure. I guess I was more wondering about what kind of things might be done with a 35mm camera. Like, what special qualities the image might have?

Much higher resolution, no noise in shadows, wider dynamic range (with negative film) meaning less highlight blow-out. Results it would take a $7000 digital to approach.
