New Arrivals

New arrivals from last weeks camera fair: Pentax ES and ME Super.

ES1-2 MES-1


Taking pictures with a 60 year old camera can be fun. From time to time I grab one of the oldies and put a roll of film in.
Checking the exposure with an external meter, waist-level viewfinder, left is right and right is left, cocking the shutter before being able to set the right exposure time, manual focussing using the magnifier, then finally taking the picture. Not really applicable for taking snapshots. ;-)
Bad news is it takes more than a week to get the film developed.
