Canon 310XL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I purchased my first  super8 camera via online, (also payed probably too much because I wanted it to be serviced and in fully working order) and looking through the lens there seems to be a red tape in the corner covering quite a big portion of the whole viewfinder. 

I have no idea wether this is something that is normal and fixable or if I should just return the camera.

Camea model is Canon 310XL.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks all

J

Have you put in batteries and a cartridge? Many cameras have some sort of underexposure warning like this.

Try uploading a picture.

So it's the black, older version and not the Autofocus (AF) silver one, correct?

It's a decent camera. I believe once you put some batteries and film in that should go away as Mark indicated it's a low light or underexposure indicator.
