Greetings. I am only recently returned to the world of photography after many years of not engaging in it as a hobby. As a kid, i learned photography with my father's Ricohmatic 225 TLR, then was a yearbook and newspaper photographer with a K1000 in high school, and worked as a field scientist using a number of different manual film cameras in my early 20s. Fast forward many years and I decided to get back into film for the fun of it. Having used TLRs at first, I ended up with a Rolleicord V about a year ago and have been shoting with it off and on ever since.

Now I am about to have a child and wanted a more usable-but-still-film camera for candids since the Rollei is fussy and best for portraiture and landscapes, IMO. Since I started with a K1000 I was looking around for one when I found a good deal on a KM with two lenses. We have our iPhones for digital things, I enjoy the character of film having grown up in a darkroom with my father, though I am not developing myself.
