This is a lovely camera. The last time it was used was around 2004 and it worked fine but since then I’ve lost the cable so I can’t say for certain that it still works, hence the spares/for parts classification. Please note: this camera sole plate DOES NOT accept the WV-GR12 ENG Camera Shoulder Grip.
