SP1000 Brochure

Here is a scan of the SP1000 brochure which I studied before purchasing my SP1000 in October 1975: http://members.optusnet.com.au/~rayallen3/SP1000Brochure.pdf

"Like the Spotmatic, the SP1000 is a computer camera". Yes, that is what they said. At the time they could not have imagined the computing power in today's cameras.

But it is hard to beat the simplicity of the old Spotmatics.

Or, indeed, today's wristwatches...

I wear a manual wind wrist watch from '69, but I do often note this kind of thing to myself when looking at everyday modern technology.

Thank you for that, what a fantastic brochure.

I realise I'm showing signs of old age by repeating: my daughter stole my SP1000
