That sounds cool. Didn't know they existed.
The charity shops around here have been bare all year.

Same here, no epic finds. Got me a Black OM1 but not exactly a steal.

You can get them in various mounts, I've seen them in SR Minolta as well. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303124547...oAAOSwf5FcsJts

Shame you can't use them to take photos. What's the view quality like?

Not too bad, not ultra clear, but certainly usable. Does that make sense? It uses the lens as max aperture so I might experiment and see if stopping the lens down helps.

i experimented with stand developing for the first time. Not a planned decision. Some idiot set the the EV compensation dial on the Nikon FE to 1 and a half stops under in mid-roll and forgot to reset it! I thought this was probably the best solution.
Exposures came out surprisingly well in the end and leaving the film to sit in 1% Rodinal for an hour is much more relaxing than developing and fixing in a hectic 15 minutes or less.
A few random shots - Ilford Pan 100.

They came out OK, I like the contrast. I haven't tried stand dev yet, I just follow the massive dev chart timer for agitation.

Don't know whether the contrast is due to the development, the film or both. I'm just happy they came out OK. I wasn't sure what to expect.
I can move on to the next camera in the queue now.

A very big queue! Have you tried Shanghai GP3? I might have to get some more.

I haven't tried the Shanghai 35mm. It was on my list to buy next time in China, which sadly never happened.
I decided to try out the K1000 and decide whether it's worth keeping or not. Loaded it with a roll of expired poundland Agfa.
