Re: Vintage film cameras

You're relationship with Olympus is like mine with Minoltas.
Not really film cameras but , I updated the firmware on the OMD EM10 today and annoyingly it's obliterated all my saved settings.

Re: Vintage film cameras

The Panasonic 20mm gets very good reviews. Think I'd prefer that to the Sigma on IQ and on size. A pancake would be a perfect fit on the EM10

At a similar range and style, I also love the Minolta...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I don't fancy that one. It's more of a lens cap/ basic fisheye, very wide and IQ isn't meant to be great. For a little more, I could get this...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Worth having a fondle of one Johnny, it's certainly not a brick.
I like mechanical SLRs in that they can work without batteries and, hopefully, they are repairable, whereas if a totally electric...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I think forget the crop factor and double the number. A M4/3 25mm is a 50mm in 35mm speak; a 14mm is a 28mm wide angle. Apparently, the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 pancake is a very good walk around lens.
I...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I think my Spotmatic is the original SP version Johnny. I just had another look, so much sleeker than the K1000 but it's stop down metering and noo split screen focussing. It's currently wearing a...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Yeah. The weather's been awful this past week. I think I picked the Spotmatic up by accident. It came with a couple of lenses I wanted.
Going to Chengdu again in a couple of weeks. What to take this...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I'll pass on the Pentax MX too. I've a working one, and the K1000, and am running out of storage space.
I got an old Spotmatic too, I think one of the earlier models. It's much nicer to look at and...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Pretty good for an old Russian camera. A nice clear image. Is it with the Jupiter 8?

Re: Vintage film cameras

I've always had a soft spot for the old Prakticas. The LTL3 was my first 'serious' camera after a Zenit. Solid and loud but I liked the metal shutter and got used to the stop down metering and...

That's a good bundle and a nice pancake on the end of the MX. How many OM1s is that now?

Re: Vintage film cameras

No, I've never tried; always bought pre-cut ones.
Getting the overall dimensions with careful measuring wouldn't be so hard but curvature around the lens mount and self-timer and film holder cut...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I switched the capacitor on the X300 this morning, put some batteries in, it fired twice and then died. I was worried for a minute but put fresh batteries in and now it's working perfectly. I never...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Glad you got the MX working again. Apart from the protection, you're not missing out on much with the case. One came with my MX but it's a bit tatty and with its kind of long, round snout, won't win...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

My bike insurance renewal came today. Last year, 223; this year 156. No changes to bike or personal circumstances. I don't know how they worked that out but I'm pleasantly surprised.

There's a possible fix here that might be worth a look and is easy to get to. http://no-exif.com/2011/07/24/pentax-mx-meter-fix

Re: Vintage film cameras

Shame about the meter but at least you've fixed it up and have something you are happy to use. Any ideas on a possible fix?
Definitely agree it's much nicer in the hand and to the ear than a K1000....

Re: Vintage film cameras

Idiotic yes but certainly not unique compared to any manufacturer these days. They all try to keep costs down by skimping on one ore more components. Look on the bright side; plenty of cheap, failed...
