Hi guys and girls a few questions

The camera is in full working order EXCEPT the pop-up flash . The flash works, but will not pop-up when released.

i have a mz 50 that will not fire when you press the shutter button but the flash works are the parts interchangable ?

any ideas people ? and where could i get a user manual and or a repair manual for free lols ?

i picked up a p30t body last week in good working order for $40 au with a sigma mini wide 21:2.8 F=28 mm muilty coat macro lens had it check out and run a few rolls of film through it and all seam to be fine, exect one of my lenses keeps comming up with blur/haze and its near new. any way it goes well with the rest of my pentax gear and is a bit more of a camera then the mg but i like the look of the me/me supper better.

Plustek Opticfilm 7200 - Slide Film Scanner ???

Wow $2.95 for developing and scanning thats like $3.50 au

Ive been think along the same lines but over here im looking at around 12 to 20 au dollars to get a roll of 24 film delveloped and more again to put them to cd's, even to get two digital prints of a memory card is $1 au to have them scanned on papper.

I also have hunderds of negitives and photo,s on papper (from traveling and general family photo,s) i would like to scan to my computer and make back ups,and sent to the rallies that live long distance by email or witht he scanner i could chose whats worth getting printed put them on cd then just take to ones i wanted printed or blown up to the lab to save money.

So if i was to get the lab to scan 20 rolls of film i would be looking at $300 or more au dollars when i can pick up a Plustek Opticfilm 7200 new with fee shipping for $379 au, or the slightly faster 7200i for $450 au with free shipping, but i cant forget to add up the price of the rolls of film as its around $14 au for a box of four kodak 400 no frills film

As i have only recently started in 35 mm film i have only taken around 100 shots just to get to know the camera as its hard when i have to try and rember what ive done what settings ive used the wait for the spare coin and to get the shots printed then come back home and figer out whats work and whats not.

The scanner seams like a good i dea, and im sure half my family could get good use out of it and it would very easy make its money back in the first few months by saving me money and time going down to the local lab.

There is always the thought why not got digital as save the hastle, but the price of the dslr,s is a bit ouchy and i thought ill learn on the older style slrs then once masterd them have a go at the dslr, its a pitty i like the older style slr,s

Also i have a few nice k, ka, m42 mount lenses (most k mount) and a few more comming and have a nice little colection of pentax and zenit slrs with all the fruit, it would be to pain to start over and go all out new dslr with new lens and in auzzie they arent cheap and every one tells me you cant use the old lens on the new dslr.

As i have a baby on the way any day now and i dont ern as much money any more as im working in town so i can be home every afternoon to help start the new family i just dont have $2 k to go dslr but $400 for a scanner is more easyer to swallow so ill do some more thinking and try and convice the boss and see how i go.

sounds good thanks for the replie

so are these scanners in general any good realy ? i heard you can scan pic,s at 14 mpix but ive never seen a scaned 35 mm negitve so im not sure how good they turn out in the end. or is the $400 pluss dollars better of getting spent towards a pentax dslr

thanks i wondered what cripped ment out of the 5 or so lenses i have some being almost the same i have 2 lenses with a settings one 28 mm simga and a 70/200 mm sigma macro.

just one more question are the cameras any good ? if you can only use them in a settings it makes you limited to what you can use them for ?
