Back to basics with Pentax film cams

Hi everyone! Thanks for allowing me in to your illustrious forums. Just picked up a Pentax LX locally for $15 and I'm planning on making it my go-to film camera. It's the reason why I joined these forums too

I always loved the simplicity of the K1000. Over the past 5 years since I started shooting film again, I've owned many different 35mm SLR's. Never really became attached to any of them until a few weeks ago until I picked up the Pentax LX. Shot a concert on a roll of TX400 pushed to 3200 and fell in love. Near-perfect metering and easy handling. Now I'm dumping my collection of 10+ 35mm SLR's and keeping the LX and a pair of K1000's. This is my home now!

Yep, paid a bit more than that for mine, but got a fair deal here on the forum for a nice, lovingly used kit. Welcome. Great camera, deal and story! Looking forward to some photographs.
