    I'm sorry if I sound like an idiot but I really need to know something.

    I have a 50 mm Pentax camera. And I'm going to need slide film for it. Now, would any slide film work? Would slide film for 35 mm be ok for 50 mm? Or are there specific slide films for 50 mm?

    I just need a daylight slide film or a ISO 400 one.

    Thanks!

    Again, sorry if it's a newbie question. I'm not a Photography major and I just need to take slides for an Illustration project :blushing:

    Is it a K1000 with a 50 mm lens?

    Yep, it's a 35 mm camera, so just about any 35mm film will work.

    :confused: I'm such a noob. It read 50mm so I figured it's totally different from a 35mm. Sorry 'bout that and thank you so much for replying! :hug::

    That's the focal length of the lens.
