  1. Stopped by our local goodwill and there was a nice Pentax with 2.0 50mm lens and flash. Gonna steal the lens for my NEX.

    The girls saw it and asked to take some pictures. They loved it and played for 45 minutes.

    Nice find! That looks like an MX, my dream camera at one point (I ended up getting an ME Super as my first SLR). Look forward to seeing some pics.

    the sound of the shutter on those old Pentaxes is so freaking sweet
     

  5. I also had lots of fun playing around. Really liked how the lens manual focused.

  7. Recently sold the body on Ebay. The next day the girls were asking to play with it again.

    I let them play with my NEX from time to time.

    Kids with cameras are the best. Makes me happy to see, both cause of the huge camera tiny hand/face, and also just to see these younguns working with analogue tools.

    Speaking of kids with cams, Morten over at MU43 has awesome photos of his little kiddo handling cameras like a total pro -- all the proper handling techniques. And the kiddo uses a viewfinder instead of the LCD!
