Camera restoration. How far is too far?

Postby Cafoar » Fri Aug 06, 2021 4:03 am

Hi,

I was wondering how far is too far when it comes to restoration of antique cameras. What's desirable?

I like a good looking camera and not only working camera. But I wouldn't like to 'desecrate' them. I have some heavily worn cameras that I've got for free or cheap. I like to learn and play with them before I even dare to touch the less available ones.

I welcome opinions and links to anything related to the subject.

Thank you all!
