I work at a camp and live in a house dedicated to ministry training. We were storing bunk beds in the attic and my friend came across an Asahi Pentax K1000! I have a Nikon D40 and had been looking for a deal on a Nikon FE to try film. So, I was very excited to find this camera (even though not a Nikon) and took it to procamera in Charlottesville, VA to see if it was operational and to make sure that in my attempts to make it go I wasn't going to ruin it. I got a battery for the light meter- it works! I got a cheap roll of B&W film to check the light sealing and have to get it processed. I was so excited I thought I'd upload a picture for cheap entertainment factor. I don't know how these photos will turn out. And, I don't know where I am on the digital vs. film spectrum. But, it was SO much fun to shoot film. It makes me really focus. And, NO MENUS! No press and spin or press hold and spin or accidentally pressing too many times! Yay for dedicated rings and nobs. I just thought I'd share that with you all.
