Thanks Nate. As per you suggestion i removed the crappy old eyecup.
ive also take some better pictures so maybe someone is able to better identify this camera
of the 2 buttons on the side the one on the left makes the camera run faster FPS as mentioned. the one on the right doesn't seem to do anything
Reads a wide aray of Film speeds and also has a switch on the top and side for 500ASA
also the white print on the inside of the door says "071" and i know there is a Chinon 1071 but..
this is a 1071 DeLuxe i found on ebay snazzy faux wood paneling and this one dosnt have the switch for 500asa film
then there is this guy the 1072 DeLuxe which has some other little buttons but is most like mine and square fade button mine is round
doesn't have the 500asa switch on the side but looks like it may have it on the top
on top of mine there is also dial for auto and manual Exposure
there seems to very limited info on the net about these cameras. http://www.super8data.com/
has data for a 1070 1071 1072 and lists a 1000 but has no info for it. Aswell im not sure if there are both DeLuxe and non-DeLuxe versions of each. and there is also some confusion with respect to running 36fps or 48fps when cross referenced with super8wiki.
I guess it doesn't really so much matter it would just be nice to know a bit more about this camera before i go test it out. which im sure you can all appreciate.
again thanks for taking the time
