Pentax Spotmatic

Pentax Spotmatic
over the years I collected a number of old film cameras and then took some digital photos of the collection. I have a blog and posted a few of the shots over there. This particular example has been viewed nearly a thousand times. a lot of views for my blog. I hope you havent seen it used in an ebay sales without my permission but you never know. My first 35mm slr camera way back when was a model similar to this one, the Pentax SP1000, which I purchased during the second year of my undergraduate years at the University of Toronto using some of the proceeds from a summer;s construction job that paid my tuition. In many ways I would have been way ahead if I had stayed with that camera and added one or two more lenses. Sadly like so many of us camera bugs I fell victim to the siren song of advertising and camera magazine articles and kept buying new gear in pursuit of the photographic silver bullet. I currently shoot with a Pentax K10D but I am a little dissatisfied wtth it and I am contemplating going back to shooting film with the Spotmatic. Time will tell if I can overcome my chronic laziness.
