The best technique is ignore,...

But if it is to compelling a 7B artists pencil is soft and works like magic.
Write gently over a spot rub off with cotton wool waste.

There is little risk of liquid penetration.

But ignore is best.

I use a soft graphite pencil eg 6B, and a qtip to remove.
You may need several treatments!

The hearing aid batteries are zinc air cells there are four sizes I bought a pack of each.
You may be able to size them by eye!
You may need a set of plumbers O rings to locate them!
I don’t have your SP sorry!
In a camera they last 2-4 months after you remove the tab!
Some one may tell you the size...

Your top plate looking down on it does have a x form screw to left of penta prism rather than a small circular plate.
And a base plate serial number is not conclusive cause I have rebuilt two cameras to get one to work. And although you can press dinks out of the plates normally sometimes they donít!
Iíd be happy it looks like a nice K1000 maybe SE.
If you got nail lacure Iíd lift the rewind R lever to rewind position and add a dab across the end of coaxial screw threads of rewind shaft cause people do lose rewind knobs.

You need stick on mini labels on camera and cassette for both count loaded and ASA if you got two loaders and more than one camera... (Not all cameras have slots for film carton tops)

---------- Post added 05-19-20 at 10:01 AM ----------


If you want to try Eg https://www.foma.cz/en/retropan320 in bulk they can come on a cine film core and you will need to keep the core from a Ilford or Kodak bulk load which fits inside the cine core.
Forms films are cheaper and more rustic in signature!

Since I use a Rodinal clone 1+100 for 60 minutes for any film the real difference is the fix time of the Kodak modern films is longer and the fixer life shorter.
If you fix by inspection you can see the difference in a mixed multi reel tank!

Try removing the plug on the cameras base plate with a small coin.
And discard the coin battery as haz waste, replacing the plug!
The camera body is saleable unlike dig cameras, the 5cm lens and body will sell as a pair.
You won’t get much but that is best.
They can still work ok and be saleable unless they have been stored damp!

It is a bridge circuit, but not balanced.
The zero on the meter is at a small current.
If you were using transparency film you need to worry.
If you are using mono be happy!
But I’d check the meter bright and low light as the old cells can age.
A good repair person would replace and recalibrate.

Inspect the shutter travel with back open if it seems ok try a cheap film.

A dev tank,... etc. And mono film is the simplest option given most seem to have a scanner now days.

XP2 should not show grain, if you donít scan the bar code, and donít read the c41, you will get grain! You can rate XP2 at 50-800 and still get good negs in C41!

The meter switch is automatic turning off with a lens cap or ERC or in Gbag with cover!
