SX-70 broken piece

Postby jarrod13 » Mon 15 May 2017 / 00:15 am

I just got it off craigslist for $20 and the rod that is supposed to lock the film lid is broken off so it won't stay up. When I push the yellow button I can see where it broke off because some of it is still there, but the part that would latch it is broken off. Is there a place to buy a replacement and how hard would it be to change it?

I love the 43$ delivery fee.
Maybe its cheaper for you to buy a second broken sx70 if that piece is fine on it.

Than if you are familiar with "bricolage" as we say in French it's not that hard to replace.

Thank you for that, I don't speak French though so I'm unable to see how to order it

Another question, is the top half of the focusing circle supposed to be very dark?
