Chinon CE-3 35mm SLR film camera with Hanimex MC Zoom 28-80mm lens

All cameras come with a 6-month warranty. Please note that the light meter does not work. While the camera can still be used in manual mode, we have adjusted the price to reflect this defect.

This kit includes:

  • Chinon CE-3 SLR film camera body
  • Hanimex MC zoom 28-80mm f/3.5-4.5


The Chinon CE-3 is a camera with an electronically controlled shutter. This means you will need 2x LR44 batteries to be able to operate the shutter.

It uses M42 lenses.

Chances are you've never heard of Chinon, let alone the CE-3. Which is a shame, given how good this camera actually is. With its iconic early-80s look, its sleek and minimalistic design, it is an easy-to-shoot camera with all day long. Add the possibility of auto-exposure and you've got yourself a cracking good camera!

The Chinon CE-4 supports M42 lenses, so you'll be able to stick some gorgeous vintage glass on this body.
