Hello friends, yes they are hard to beat. On the other hand . . they are a bit noisy.

Looks in perfect condition. Like new.
I hid mine under my daughters bed years ago. Last time I looked they were covered in some strange green fungus. I shuddered and put them back.

That does not sound happy Bill. Better send the whole lot to me.

I quite like the idea of nature reclaiming it's own. Once I had a serious digicam I just left all my film cameras in bags and boxes and never opened them again. I have a 500 c/m and a 500elx 3 lenses, prism, backs and rolls of film out of the wrappers ready to use, all in squidgy iridescent green.
But to return to your beautiful camera. The downside of the 'c' over the 'c/m' is the screen. You're stuck with the one it comes with. The c/m enabled changing it at will. The one I prefer is brighter and has a split image rangefinder in the centre. I think that your back there is an A12 back which is far better than the earlier '12 on' back. But if your body is from '64, then the back is a newer one. You can tell the age using the code, VHPICTURES. I expect you've got there already. The quick focus handle is worth it's weight in gold (but they break), as is the wind on crank. I think your crank is also newer than '64, but it is older than my style crank which dates from 1980. The cameras came with a knob as standard. A polaroid back is also essential if you can still get the film, and invaluable for taking private dirty pictures if you want to go the whole retro hog. In fact if you wanted to trace significant advances in photography that advanced it to a new level then the polaroid back has got to be one, Along with the Hasselblad and electronic flash.

Polaplus, anything can be found on eBay.
All your squidgy iridescent green equipment is still welcome. After a week with me they will look like new.
