    My aunt just sent me a couple cameras that she never uses for me to play around with and increase my collection. One is a Pentax and it seems that the mirror is missing. It's a camera from around 1976, 35mm SLR... Is there any way to find out about getting a new mirror? Someone somewhere has to sell them or if I just go and have a piece of glass cut ...

    Thanks in advance.

    SLR mirrors are very thin, lite, and reflective on the front, as opposed to the back like other mirrors. Your best bet is find an old repair shop that has a good stock of busted cameras and see if you can find an old camera with a good mirror.
