This camera has been with me everywher I've been in the world. Always took slides. I appreciated the Auto/Manual options as I have had occasion to use both. I have finally entered the digital age, though and want to sell. It is still in great shape and has the auto advance attachment with it. (read more)

I owned a Chinon CE4 SLR camera for 19 years - until it was stolen seven years ago.
I would love to own one again as I particularly loved the multi-shot function. I created many many fun pictures in this way.
It was a very easy to use camera and there honestly wasn't anything I didn't like about it.

"bulletproof" is often an overused adjective. My Chinon CE4 has circumnavigated the globe countless times. It's still a great camera, a collection of Pentax glass has helped for image quality. Love it, would never part with it. (read more)

Brilliant camera can be used as a basic camera with excellent results or you can add different lenses and improve the pictures even more so.

I am basically a Pentax fan owning an MX and an MZ-S for a long time. Unfortunately Pentax could not satisfy my need of having a basic electronic camera with classic big viewfinder (split screen/microprism collar), control dial (instead of digital interface) and a depth-of-filed preview lever (as I shoot most of the time with MF lenses). This led me to Chinon CE-4 (and later CE-4s). These cameras are simply great and spartan. No frills. And this is what you really need. Now after a couple... (read more)

The Chinon Ce-4 generally serves very well and is underrated in terms of performance. It is very cheap on eBay, so is good value for money. The features are good. The quality can be spectacular and many of the pictures taken with this camera is proof of this. The only thing that let's it down is the annoying LED's and the fact that it requires four LR44'S, which is a problem. However for the price and performance you will not be disappointed. (read more)

Looking for a second body to augment my old KX, I saw a Chinon Ce-4 on e-bay. I was amazed. It handled beautifully with all of the controls logically placed, viewfinder bright and crisp and a good, solid "Feel." In short, it felt right, and as any photographer will tell you, that is half the battle. The results, quite simply, were excellent. What you have here is an excellent camera which has been badly underrated for years because it comes from a small manufacturer. (read more)

The shutter on the Chinon Ce-4 has speeds from B-1000th of a second which
is average for a camera design of it's age. The camera
has a good iso range from 25-3200 iso. The camera is compatable
with most non-dedicated flash units and it is compatable with a
Chinon dedicated auto flashes S-280 S-180 S-240. The viewfinder
visability is ninty two percent which is about average for an SLR.
The camera has TTL Centre weighted metering and Led's will light up
in the viewfinder if you press very... (read more)
