    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.

    Great gift!

    Excellent camera! Bought it as a gift for my dad and he was so happy! It was very well packaged. The camera itself was in very good condition, looked practically brand new. Haven't developed any pictures yet but we're excited to see how it turns out. Will be shopping from here again! :)
