Hello, I've recently aquired a Pentax K1000. My grandmother had this camera for many years. After her death it was given to me. I've heard this is a great camera to have, and will hopefully learn all I can. I have 2 lenses, the Pentax A 1:2 50MM, and the Pentax A 1:4.7-5.6 80-200MM. She took some beautiful photos with this camera.
Because this is my first manual focus camera, I am doing research to learn about the settings. I welcome any help I can get

Thanks for reading,

I remember my K1000, what a beautiful piece of equipment. They're so efficiently Spartan. They're the Les Miles (survivorman) of cameras. I imagine that a cross between an M-1 rifle and an acoustic guitar would be something like a K1000.
