Technical Notes

The Lordox 24x36 camera is a fully manual camera, with most adjustable settings located on the lens itself. To open the camera, turn the wriststrap supports clockwise 1/4 turn and slide the rear off.

This camera has an interesting remaining exposure counter, which is a wheel on the top next to the cold shoe that you must reset to zero when changing out film.

Hello Christine. The value of this camera is subjective on condition, and demand... I would suspect, in good condition, you could get between $10 and $30 for the camera itself.

Hello Jan,That is up to you -- as we had told Christine, the camera is probably only worth $10-$30, and perhaps a little more with the accessories you have. If you have in interest in camera collecting or film photography, the camera does fairly well (especially when assisted with a light meter), and may be worth keeping.
