Without more information or photos it's pretty much impossible to even guess. But, it could be anything between a Leica and a Leica III, produced anywhere between 1925 and 1954. Only features and model-specific numbers engraved on the camera would tell the full story - serial numbers don't give much information to anybody but the factory.

I've a Zenith TTL SLR camera with loads of lenses

Hi, The lens' you currently have have a M42 mount on them so you'll need an adapter that will convert M42 to the micro four thirds mount that Panasonic uses on their G series. is one option of a mount you can get that will make it so your lens' can be used. Hope that this helps =)

I purchased a polaroid camera from a 2nd hand store for next to nothing, obviously i wasnt expecting it to function or work at all, it is a one step plus SX-70, i've replaced the batteries in the...


The SX70 film pack contains the battery that allows the shutter to activate. Unfortunately you may have a difficult time finding it. Below are a couple links with some good SX70 info. The second one even has a link to the user guide in PDF format. I think the Q-light was on some of the One Step cameras. is that what you have?

Thanks for using Fixya. Good luck.

I did find a site that sells the $24.50 a pop!

You may find some additional info there too.

The battery in the film pack may be dead, or the camera is broken. Take the film pack out and replace it. If the camera does not reset then the camera is gone.

One time use camera-defective

these cameras when taken apart actually have a AA battery inside for the flash. If the camera has been on the shelf for a long time then you may have old battery. Check the date on the camera and be sure that is at least two years past current.

Which Hasselblad?

There were several versions of the 500C/M as production was over many years. The 501C had all the latest revisions of the 500 C/M series to make it the better choice. You'll get more $ for the 501 for this reason. Later versions of the 500C/M had a much better coil spring to control the mirror for starters. Unless you are going to use this camera for daily professional use, either would be a reliable camera. A good way to check the amount of use on any Hasselblad is to look at the back of the camera where the film magazine mounts. A good solid black with no shiny spots on the plate would indicate little use. There are raised lines around the aux. shutter opening that will wear as film back are removed and replaced.
