First off, welcome to the forum!

I suggest you join the forum so that you can post your questions and ask for help in the appropriate sections. Please note that this forum is made up of Pentax users and is not affiliated with Pentax in any other way.

Your local library is a good place to start to learn the basics of photo techniques. You might also look to see if there is a photo club near your location as nothing teaches better than hands on, IMHO. On line searches can also help.

The ME Super is an excellent film camera, and one I used for over twenty years before switching to digital. A PDF file of the manual that came with the ME Super can be downloaded in two parts here: ME Super

Don't expect much from the manual, other than the basics of how to operate the camera.

Just a side note, but I find it funny when guests put "mr" in the title field I'll update this thread's title to reflect the content shortly.

Given the style of his typing, I believe he meant ME (the E key is right next to the R). I changed it to be more reflective of the message.

No no, it's mr as in mister. I've seen it done many times before- quite funny, actually! But yes, we should change it as you suggest
