    How We Grade Our Cameras

    We restore, test, and clean all of our cameras to ensure that despite its age, your Cute Camera works as well as it would have if purchased it in 1976. This means that you’ll be able to capture your soulmate’s smile, your puppy dog’s eyes, or the sunset of your last day at college – straight out of the box. 

    VERY GOOD:

    A "very good" body will have minimal signs of wear and tear. Examples include slight impurities like  worn leather or metal, signs of age on the bottom plate, and dull marks. 

    GOOD:

    A “good” body will also look nice but have some additional potential cosmetic wear such as spots with discoloration,  worn down metal or small scratches somewhere on the body.

    AVERAGE:

    An “average” body will be a more severe case of cosmetic wear like more extreme discoloration or worn down metal, exterior or interior black
    specs, deeper scratches, or lines in the eye prism.

    Fleet of Pentax K1000's

    I worked with Cute Camera to order a large quantity of Pentax K1000's for student use at my university - they were incredibly fast and helpful and even threw in some gorgeous vintage neck straps to support the large order. The equipment looks clean and works great. Amongst all of the faulty cameras that I have seen students purchase from unreliable vendors, I am grateful to have a company that carefully checks and repairs cameras before sending them out into the world. I will send my students your way in the future!!

    The quality of the item is pretty good that's because I chose the very good condition. The only issue I have, and that is why I rated it a 4 out of 5 is due to the fact that the counter is not working as it should. I have to reset it manually. It seems that if the counter is set manually to 0 it counts well with few mistakes. Besides this issue, I'm pretty satisfied with the images it takes.
