    Hi everyone. I took a photography class in HS, and I loved it. I used a Pentax K1000, and it was a good camera to me. I seem to have lost it, and so I am looking to purchase another manual camera. I am going to take another photography class next semester and I was wondering if you could recommend a cheap starter camera for me. I really liked the K1000, but I was looking on the net and also found some Minolta's that were pretty good deals. The x370 or the 570.

    So what would you recommend, and where can I find these for the cheapest? Thanks!

    Zack

    I bought an X370s just a few months ago, and they are still available new as well as used. I use it as much or more than my AF. If you really liked the K-1000 check keh.com, there are good ones available.

    Cool, so you really like the 370. What does a 370 cost new?
