    Then have I got a deal for you! [​IMG]

    I accidentally committed to buying two Pentax K1000s with 50mm lenses, so I decided I'd offer one of them up to anyone here on the forum who would like to get into shooting film.

    You might end up getting a working Pentax K1000 with a 50mm f/2 SMC lens! This camera was responsible for getting lots of people of my, shall we say, 'vintage', into photography. When I received it, it suffered from the dreaded 'Dead Meter Syndrome', but I was able to repair the issue.... a corroded connection at the battery chamber. It also sports a new battery, so all you'll need is a roll or two of film and you're all set.

    So, if you're serious about shooting film, send me a PM and let me know you're interested. I want to send this to someone who wants to use it,....... not sell it on ebay for lunch money. I'll even pay for US shipping. If you live outside the US, I might ask that you chip in a bit to help pay for shipping.

    If more than one member is interested, I'll decide who will get it by a random drawing. I'll keep this offer open until Dec. 26th so everyone has an opportunity to see it.


    Cheers! [​IMG]

    Totally agree. Easy and FUN to use, and helps you learn about the exposure triangle. Super sharp lens.

    Great offer! If I didn't have my Minolta, I'd be in for sure!

    Someone should jump on this.

    Agreed, someone needs to jump on this. I can vouch personally for the fabulousness that is the K1000 :)

    Meth might be cheaper in the long run.

    Teach your children photography at an early age. So when they grow up, they won't have any money for drugs.
