Poitiers' annual expo/swap ... My Pentax finds : Picked up a consignment sale SMC A 135/2.8 for 50€ and a "thought to be dead" KX with an LX bottom case for 5€ ... took a half hour to clean the grime off the KX, but now it works fine with new batteries ... just the mirror lock-up does not seem to work (puzzled here ) ...

I wish we had swaps like this near here, but maybe it is all for the best as I am out of room now.

oooh, pretty. What kind of camera is that, Colton? It looks very small indeed, and in great condition.

I envy your having a flea market like that. We don't have anything like that here. Probably a good thing though!

Jonathan, it's a Minolta PROD-20'S. It was released in 1990, in Japan only, as a limited edition collectors item. It's sort of a retro looking novelty camera. The looks make on think of some sort of retro styled Hexar AF, but it's actually a dressed up plastic P&S.
It's auto everything, no manual control whatsoever. The only operational controls are the shutter button and the self timer switch. The lens is a 35mm f/4.5
It's also actually larger than it seems in photos. The overall size is probably similar to a K1000 without a lens.
It's a good looking camera though, and has some features that work well for me.

Hello, I'm Alex and I'm addicted to evilbay and Canon FD.

The purchases of the week:







And now I'm lusting for a T90 and/or a F-1 Old...somebody should stop me.

I've never really got into Canon FD gear. The F1 looks like a great camera.
For some strange reason, I've always wanted a Canon EF.

The F1s are all great cameras, not an expert of the EF, perhaps Cooltouch is the right person to talk about that camera.

I also like the FTB but let's be honest, all the Japanese SLRs of the 70s are great.

Thanks Colton, it's always good to learn. It looks old and small, so it seems it's deceptive. It is handsome though.

How interesting -- there I was thinking is this a half-frame camera? As you say, bigger than it appears in the photo.

Back in action, this has been in the family since my mother bought it new:



Complete overhaul and CLA by John Titterington, JTcamera at aol dot com. He lives in Kansas, and in addition to Minolta SR also specializes in Minolta X, Olympus OM 1, Canon A, and, yes, Pentax K. His service on this camera included recalibrating the meter to work with modern 1.5v batteries. Fast service and excellent communication. He sells refurbished bodies on eBay. Hoping to get a chance to run a roll through the SRT 101 in the next couple of weeks, but as far as I can tell so far he has done an excellent job and at a very reasonable price.

Thanks for the reference. I have a black SR-T 101 that needs CLA plus other minor issues ...

I found a place in the UK, but lost their contact info ... argh.

It's decent enough as far as I can tell.
I'll post some images in the film image thread soon.
