This appeared in the local thrift store the other day. the bag contained the manual and unfortunately two SX 70 and one 600 Film packs. Somehow, a darkslide from a Spectra pack was in there. Bit faint but the tag says $9.00. ...so I took the 600 pack and gave it to this guy, calls him the "Blue Frog" Never had a chance to test this one so surprised when he sprang to life. The coding on the film (as far as I could find out) gave a manufacture date of Oct. '88 so I was surprised that the batteries were still strong enough to fire the flash and run the transport mechanism. The chemistry had dried out as well as the other usual deterioration. The whole pack was the same, and frame #10 was so dry that the gel envelope didn't open. So on the shelf for now until I save up enough to purchase some film packs. Hope that the Spectra works. Think that the Captiva will have a long wait.
