    So I'm trying to collect some older film cameras, and today I picked up a Pentax Spotmatic and a Minolta HI-MATIC F for 30 bucks! What do you guys think?

    My first camera was a Spotmatic. You never forget your first anything.

    Some years back, I came across one on eBay that was in pristine condition. Really.... I doubt there's been more than a few rolls of film though it. Although I still have my first, I had to have it. It's virturally new!

    I'm a bit emabarassed to say, I paid over $200. It's been in a drawer ever since.
