This Zeiss Continette is probably one of the simplest cameras that Zeiss made. The shutter works well at all speeds from 1/30 to 1/250. The diaphragm which is marked from F/2.8 to 22, but stops down to only F/16. It operates smoothly, but just stops at F/16. The counter and self timer work OK.
The 45mm F/2.8 Lucinar lens has some marks/scratches on it as you can see in the flashlight test, last pic. The case is very nice showing minor wear.
US ALL STATES and CANADA $10.00
ALL OTHER COUNTRIES $19.00
PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING!!!
We do not answer questions that ask for info that is CLEARLY stated in the description. Too much time is wasted catering to people who can't/won't/don't read! Questions such as "how much is shipping to California", when a fixed dollar amount for US and/or overseas shipping is listed, will not be answered. Of course, we will gladly give shipping quotes when there is no specific dollar amount listed for your location. Likewise, we'll be happy to answer anything we may have missed in the description.
Everything is sold AS-IS; NO WARRANTIES offered on anything, unless otherwise specified. Although we do sell NOS (new old stock) items from time to time, (will say so in the title) this is generally an auction of used merchandise and we treat it as such. If one of our photo/electronic items burns down your house, your neighborhood, or destroys the entire world, it is not our responsibility. We TRY to check everything as best we can, and describe it as accurately as possible. If we see a defect/problem, we'll show it, and/or tell you. Since we sell mostly used items, don't expect "mint" condition! We are not in love with the words "perfect" and "mint", as so many here seem to be, when dealing with older, used equipment. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of seeing items listed in "mint" condition that have any signs of wear whatsoever. IF AN ITEM HAS ONE TINY MARK/SCRATCH IT IS NOT MINT!!! Selling beat up, broken stuff on eBay is fine; just call it as it is! We would LOVE to sell MINT/New items since they are easy to describe: "MINT!!" But, it's virtually never the case with older items!
You can always immediately pay with PayPal at auction end, if no further info is needed. Otherwise, you will receive an invoice shortly after auction end, or within 12 hours if we have a rare ISP problem here. IF you can't pay by PayPal, please contact us and see what we can do.
We generally ship smaller items via USPS (the Post Office). For non-US shipping, please see the next section below. WE DO NOT SHIP UPS. We will ship larger items FedEx Ground, those heavier than about 5 or 6 lbs. Shipping larger items via FedEx Ground is generally cheaper. In most cases we will ship within 24 hours after payment is made by PayPal. EBay now FORCES sellers to give a time frame for shipping. We "officially" chose 2 business days, but 95% of the time items go out the same or next day, depending on what time payment is received. We ship from zip code 34608. We usually don't make Post Office visits on Mondays, or the day after a holiday; it's just too busy! No extra handling fees unless otherwise stated.
CANADA and OVERSEAS SHIPPING:
There is no longer any OVERSEAS SURFACE SHIPPING. We usually ship most small inexpensive items via International First Class(up to 4 lbs) or International Priority Mail or EMS on larger/expensive items.
Canada: Shipping rates to Canada for small First Class packages are very close to US cost, so in many cases involving small packages with fixed shipping cost, we will quote one rate for both.
We reserve the right to remove any bid at any time. We will be on the lookout for chronic bid retractors, buyers who hand out frivolous negatives, or those with zero feedback that make their eBay debut by bidding on thousands of dollars worth of goods. In the past, 100% of these people have turned out to be deadbeats, so we won't accept their bids now. If you are a new/low/zero feedback bidder and are bidding on an expensive item, please contact us so we can make sure you have a PayPal account already established.
If we don't receive payment within 7 days of the auction and have not heard from you, we reserve the right to re-list the item.
I hope this "info/editorial" gives you all the info you need to deal with us on this or any other item. Please feel free to contact us if you have any further question/comments. Thanks!..... Bill....(for Bill & Sue)
We accept credit cards ONLY through PayPal. If you have ANY questions about payment, please contact us!
