Hi everybody,
I got really lucky at the salvation army today, there were tons of old cameras, looked like someone had a hard core kodak collection.
I picked up an Instamatic M2, i popped some batteries in and the spindle turns and i can see the shutter flashing through the lens,
However, after a few seconds it starts making a horrible grinding noise but the spindle keeps turning. also i feel a repetitive bumping
against the shutter release button. I've heard these things are indestructible apart from the geartrain, and i really just want this thing to work
before i go and buy film.
