I have recently purchased what looks to be and was described as a "Superb... in very, very good condition" Canon 1014 XL-S after asking many questions of the 'reputable' seller.
As it turns out there is one possible problem that I may not be able to live with, ie. get good clear footage. The viewfinder displays significant hazing. I am able to adjust the diopter ring no problem to give quiet sharp viewing but there is still the cloudiness over the entire viewfinder area.
In short, will I be able to shoot clean, sharp footage or is there some kind of fungus, dirt or otherwise that will render this camera a film waster?
Thank you in advance for any help.
