I wondered about a dragging shutter too, it's the LX, so it is horizontal. After seeing this thread it gave me a bit of hope it might be the lens: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/general-technical-troubleshooting/151725-...shot-k10d.html, but I think you're right.

Looks like shutter to me. My K1000 SE was doing that before I had it CLA'd and one of my SVs is doing that now

First Roll Through the K1000

I used up most of the first roll on junk shots around the yard, took these on the way to town.
I had the Fujifilm 200 developed at Walgreens and scanned the negatives in my Epson 3590. I wasn't paying attention to settings, the air was full of smoke from wildfires.
Next project is to find more lenses.

Bobh, good on you! Saw your introduction of the venerable K1000 in the "Introduce your film Pentax" thread. Looks like you got it at a very good price. I'm impressed with your repair work on the meter; I'm not very handy at all.

Enjoy your "new" old camera.

Best,
Kevin

David,

I went by Walgreens to pick up some of the $1/roll film, but they were out. The store manager gave me a rain check, and I asked him for 20 rolls. At $1/roll, I can't go wrong! He said that when they get it in (maybe a couple of weeks) I can get whatever kind I want out of what they have in stock. He said that they sold out fast, and even the warehouse is out, so they have to await shipment from their supplier. He also told me that there is no expiration on the rain check. Nice guy.

Thanks for letting us know about the sale!

Local Walgreen's is having their 24 Exposures 200 400 and 800 film on sale this week for $1 a roll! I just picked up 5 rolls each of the 200 and 400 to give it a try. The box says "Product of Japan" so I think this is re-branded Fuji. For a buck of Fuji film that seems pretty good deal. Although this could be the cheapest Fuji film they made. Just thought I would pass this along in case anyone local is interested.

Sorry to hear they were out, after I pick up the 10 rolls and went back the next day tries to get more but they were all gone too! I also asked for a rain check but they were not sure when the next shipment will arrive! I think it is a good deal for a buck a roll and for casual shooting. I just finished one roll and canít wait to see how it turns out.

I think they only developed 35mm, you might need to find a local pro shop or send it out to a photo lab like this one Black & White Film

Got through my first roll of film with my Spotmatic. First time using film on an slr camera and I'm relatively pleased. Have a light seal kit coming so it should fix the light leakage.
Film was Kodak Max 400 from 2004/2005

Used a Helios 44-2 and a Takumar

The more I see it the more I like this Kodak ColorPlus 200!! The only problem is the 36 exposure that I always having trouble to finish it. Excellent shots.
