Hello guys,

i just happened to chanced upon my dad's old film camera, Canon EOS80D with5 different lenses in a bag. The bag had been in his cupboard for at least 8 to 10 years, together with a bottle of silica gel with already all turned white. Most of the lense are like 'stuck' - unable to turn. Dun dare to use force as i am afraid of spoiling the mechanism inside

i thought of restoring the camera and its accessories to take night shoot.

Should i restore it?
If yes, where can i go to get the thing cleaned up?

Do you think worth restoring it for night shoot?

Thanks

Regards

Eric

Not economically viable... unless its one of those FM series, then mebbe worth it to repair... This 601 is not really worth the money and effort.

Post it in the classifieds. Someone might be interested to purchase it.

Now thing is, you might want to be more descriptive about your title. It kinda give someone a heart attack if you see someone crying out wolf when there's really only a kitty out there :confused:

You can pick up a F-601 at around $140 nowadays, or even lower. The lenses are not superb ones too. So I guess you have to accept the fact that things do depreciate.

I think it's not worth it for repair. Save the money and get better cams. Alternatively, keep the F-601 as display set in your home :)

You may want to consider donating the body to a school / orphanage or institutions like Salvation Army or somewhere like that where kids can learn about basics of photography the old school way.

With the use of film, they may learn to properly focus and compose a scene before shooting.

And as for the lens...well...there are options like paper weight, door stop, or a fishing bait ;p

Why don't you just clean it up a little and keep a piece of your Family History? ;)

They don't make SLRs like they used to! :bsmilie:
