Here we have an epic little blast from the past. This Brilliant Chinon CG-5 35mm Film Camera with Auto Chinon 50mm F1.9 Lens plus Power Film Winder/Battery Grip is in fantastic condition. There are a few age related marks on the camera which is all cosmetic. The camera works as it should, including the Lightmeter and shutter. The 50mm Lens is great fun to use and is an automatic lens! The aperture is smooth and the blades are oil free! The lens has some minor specs of dust and fungus, but nothing that will impact final image quality in any noticeable way.

This camera also comes with an extremely rare original Chinon Power Winder/Battery Grip. The grip is in great condition and adds so much charm to this little camera, its like a suit of armour! The Battery grips winder is currently untested, but the shutter button of the grip works as expected!
