Item Description
This K1000 came with a lens that I recently bought. I'm giving it away for free, as-is, as long as you cover shipping. It appears to be an early production model as evidenced by the little hump behind the serial number.

The camera itself has prominent signs of use, including scuffing and scratches on most outer edges. There don't seem to be any dents on the body, however, which is a good indicator that it might still be perfectly usable.

The mirror box and film compartment are clean, but new foam is needed. There's some dust on the focusing screen, but apart from that the viewfinder is fine. I tested the shutter mechanism and it seems to work correctly. I did not test the light meter.

The ISO selector is not damaged; in the photo below it simply wasn't positioned correctly.

The trim/cover for the shutter count indicator is missing, but the indicator works as it should.

TD;LR: the camera is beaten up but seems to be fully-functional. (lens not included)

I already have one so I'll leave this for someone else. But every photographer should shoot one of these a couple of times in life. A fun and functional little piece of simplicity.

I've sent postage to Adam, so the camera's coming to my house. But monochrome's idea is awesome!

Here's my proposal...

Let's resurrect this classic first. Pledge your donation here, and when we make it to about $100, I'll ship it to Eric for a full makeover.

I'll shoot the first roll, and then send it to whoever pledges the first donation. Then, each donor takes a turn before we open it up to everyone.

What do you say? Lets beautify this thing and send it around the world!
