Sale price$ 499

With a prestigious moniker such as Alpha, these cameras have a few tiny upgrades from the original models that can make a world of difference in shooting. These differences include tripod mounting capabilities and strap lugs on the back to attach a camera strap. The interior mechanism is slightly different than the original models, but not a way that is perceptible to the user. The manual focusing system and exposure adjustment options give it a perfect blend of form and precision still sought by photographers today.

This is a genuine piece of vintage retro tech - refurbished and restored by Retrospekt. Our process includes:

  • Deconstructing the camera to its base components
  • Verifying the form and function of each piece
  • Repairing and replacing pieces whenever necessary, but also...
  • Retaining original pieces whenever reasonably possible
  • Cleaning all optical and viewing components including lenses and fresnels
  • Polishing exterior components
  • Applying new Italian leather replacement coverings
  • Packaging each camera in a specially made box
