My dad gave me his old Pentax film camera with all the accessories (zooms galore and a wide angle lens) for xmas so I need to go out and have a play with it soon.

I had one of those back in the eighties and early nineties. Some b*****d nicked it. It had been owned by a journalist once and had a really nice slightly battered and weathered character. Built like a brick shit-house.

It was meant to be one of the best cameras in the world, 20+ years ago!

Apparently Jessops or wherever let you put SLR photos onto a usb stick rather than developing them. Do they just scan them? Because this is my only practical concern when it comes to using the camera for important (deadline based) uni work, I just borrow my friends digital SLR. It'll take me a while to work out how to use the pentax properly, sure I'll post my results.

It's a good camera to play with before I have the money to save up for a digital SLR.

Lack of entries, there is a (world wide) photography contest on the world forums: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=268

...


Oh and I was really pissed off at my Pentax SLR recently, it wasn't working properly, then got jammed so I had to rip the film out... wasted a film. But I used it a few months ago for close up uni model photos and they came out okay:
