Guess what I got an hour ago for FREE? A whole big box of vintage gear! It's not the K1000 they suggest at the local schools but in the box there's a Honeywell Pentax SP1, VGC, and it seems to be working okay. (I don't have the right battery to check the light meter as yet.) Also a Canon AE-1 but I'm not sure about this one. Looks near perfect, but the film advance lever is stuck. There's no shutter click when you press the button. There's no film inside so I'm not sure what's going on there as yet. I hope this camera is salvageable though. It's got some good reviews, the AE1. It's a black version which I like. Very sweet looking old camera. It also has a nice zoom lens to go with besides. There were several lenses for both. I'm trying to figure them all out now, but the whole box was quite a haul. There are two really nice Super-Takumar lenses, two Vivitar teleconverters. I understand these S-T lenses are lovely. In excellent condition from the looks of them. No mold that I can see, no yellow. Most of the lenses are in the original leather type cases. The cameras both have them too. Really nice condition. It's like the guy never used it, and he said he did, all the time, for years. I have 3 manuals, a couple of bigger books for these cameras. Basically I've got 2 starting film kits here, and at least one is working, the Pentax. Me, I'm very happy I don't have to take anything out of the DSLR kitty now to have a film camera for school!

I'll take some quick pics in a little while. Got to ask you vintage camera pros some questions and I need to do some searching to see if I can put a hot shoe on this SP1 or not. I think I can, and that would be practical as these old flashes and the one I already have need one. Also I just found these really odd Soligor Elitar lenses in my Grandad's old stuff! Not for film cameras. I think they are for an old movie camera. They are labeled 1.19/6.5MM # 197551 and 1.19/38MM #27702. I'm trying to look them up and see what to auction those for, no use here, but I can't even find any so far.
