the cameras in my analog collection – there are a few miscellaneous other bits (flashes, lenses, etc…) but this is the good stuff. they just don’t make stuff like this anymore.

2009-12-16 - spotmatic

I finished off my first roll of film in my old Pentax Spotmatic SLR (my Dad picked it up at a rummage sale). It’ll be awhile before I can develop it, and the suspense is killing me. I still don’t have a battery in the camera, so I had to use a hand-held GE exposure meter to estimate exposure and aperture.

This camera makes such an awesome sound when the shutter is released. I’m loving everything about the camera – the craftmanship, build quality, the sick 50mm f/1.4 lens with pentaprism focus assist. Amazing. Especially considering the thing is older than I am.
