Fellow K1000 Photographers


I have acquired two K1000's from my recently passed father-in-law. I have a used 35mm Fujica camera for years till it died.
I'm glad the K1000's service record is so dependable. I'm hoping to network with other users of this model to learn and share tips and experiences with this wonderful camera.

My passion is shooting in black & white. I've shot family, sports, landscape and weddings with 35mm film and absolutely love the medium.

To learn more I have enrolled in the Professional Photography course at New York Institute of Photography and am hoping to find others that are students of or graduates of NYIP to converse with.

I'm very glad to have found this forum.

My K1000 was bought new 32 years ago, and is still in use today. I shot my youngest Grandsons birthday using it a couple weeks ago. Colbyt is right they are great cameras to learn on.
