[SOLD] Chinon CE-4 body & case Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Chinon CE-4 body & case

Asking Price
30 USD

Item Description
A good working copy of the Chinon CE-4 - basically a ME Super with more features (DoF preview, multiple exposure lever) plus a shutter speed dial instead of those fiddly buttons. I've had a few rolls through this one and it's working fine. Only issue besides minor scuffs is the leatherette on the front right is coming off. It could easily be reglued.

Comes with a generic body cap, case, and manuals.

Ah. My very first SLR in the US.

I bought a used copy of this on New Year's Day 1984 at a swapmeet. I was going to a community college and work at the swapmeet on weekends. It came with a Chinon 50mm F/1.9 and a small flash unit. I later found a winder for it.

I used it until 1995 when I gave it to my brother's fiancée (now his wife).

Nice little camera. I had some features unusual for the target users: DOF review, multiple-exposures, 2- and 10-second self-timer. Its winder has invalometer feature.

I liked it better than the Pentax MESuper.

A very fine little camera. I used one like this for my m42 lenses for a while.
It is surprisingly compact, yet ergonomic SLR with lots of features and nice mirror action.
With industar 50-2 (pancake) mounted on it, i could easily fit it into my jacked pocket like a P&S, still it was even able to use my Sigma 70-300 APO.
The only thing i felt it lacks was indicator showing the rewind progress, so you could stop before the film cartridge has taken up all of the film.
