Still have a film body?

Postby Kronos » Feb Sun 15, 2004 8:57 pm

Just wondering how many visitors here still have a film body.

I'm probably going to buy a film body to take advantage of my wide angle (canon 16-35mm l) and also my fisheye.

Truth be known, probably closer to "Twenty" or so, but who's counting? :D

NAW, but then again, this is probably why I have a few laying around. :D

One that I still think is pretty cool is my old Pentax MX. This camera has all the mechanical attributes of the venerable old "K-1000", and will also operate sans ANY batteries. Built like a tank, and smaller than the K-1000, with more features. The MX was in high demand by Pentax film shooters at one time, and may still be. :hs
Believe it or not, each one of my cameras was chosen by me for one specific reason or another.
I remember right after purchasing my original digital camera (E-10) the seller encouraged me to dump all my film bodies before they became worthless, LOL! I'm sure you know that I rushed right out and did just that. :bong
