Coming home, back to film

Just wanted to take this chance to say hello - I work for a motion picture company that has film and digital cameras, and after years of walking by the darkroom - it hit me! Why aren't I shooting film for stills? I can develop right here?!

So I took the plunge on a K1000 ebay special ($37 with the kit f2 50mm lens), and even had it serviced here at work. It's like brand new and so much fun.

I'm keen to get more glass and get the shutter working again.

Thanks for contributing to this forum - it's been a huge help in my decision-making process!

Welcome to the Forums.
The k 1000 is a fun basic camera. I still have and occasionally use my original k 1000
