Meadowhall in Sheffield. How much was the Contessa? Most of them seem to have fungus and sticky shutters, easy enough to do though and can get around 25 when sorted.

I did save this Butcher Carbine 122 roll film camera from the boot sale. Seller didn't know how to fold it so while showing the man ahead of me what to do bent the struts. The bellows are holed but I wanted to save it. Think 6x9 folder but MUCH bigger.

Debatable! Both are good and I like the 700 a lot. The 500 doesn't have the program mode but there's more info in the viewfinder display. It shows the shutter speed chosen by the meter and also the shutter speed set on the camera. X700 doesn't show the latter. I think that's the main difference. Body and controls are pretty much the same.
