Before integral films like SX-70 and 600, peel-apart film was the standard in instant photography. These cameras require the user to extract each photograph from the camera after the exposure is made; doing so spreads the developing chemistry between the negative and positive. Once the development is complete (per the film's instructions), the user separates the negative from the finished positive.

All packfilm cameras from Retrospekt are refurbished internally and externally; any defective components are replaced with refurbished, guaranteed parts. All viewfinder/rangefinders are cleaned and adjusted to ensure proper focus at all distances. These photos are of the exact camera you will receive. 

This is an authentic vintage piece guaranteed to work.

This camera has experienced decades of life before finding its way to Retrospekt. As such, it will show some signs of past use.

The end result is an excellent vintage restoration that is guaranteed to work properly. Should any questions arise, we have a team of friendly people ready to help you.
