Hello from City & Islington College, London

Hi everyone. I'm a Visual Arts Technician at a London art school and they've recently introduced a 35mm photography module. One of my first jobs has been to stock up with 35mm SLR's and I've chosen the Pentax K1000 as the starter camera as it's the camera I started with 30 years ago.
Nice to meet you all!

Pete Johnson

Learning on an all-manual camera is very important! Learn the basics, like in sports, it sets the foundation.

Welcome, Pete. Why not stock up with the KM? Exactly the same as the K1000 except that it also has a self timer and stop-down preview.

Welcome to the forum, a good choice btw with the "starter camera", folk can learn how to use a "real" camera.
