Just bought a very cheap Canon 814. I needed a 2nd camera I could could compare with my Nizo for film/dev testing.
The focus is completely out. I can only focus at 60mm end and then have to turn the focus ring the opposite way. I shot a test using a tape measure to set focus and the image was out of focus so it seems like the lens. Also the VF seems fuzzy and the diopter setting is stuck.
A camera repair company just quoted me £189 + VAT to fix and service it. That would be nice but out of proportion to the s/h value of the camera, I suspect.
What should I do:
Can I fix it myself? Is that even possible?
Sell/give it away it for spares?
Advice , please? Or other suggestions? Thank-you.
