What 3D printed grip did you go with? There's a seller/maker based in Poland that I'm on the fence about.

Is this a frankensteined Super A (Super Program)?

If the lens is a 50mm F1.7, it could be worth the risk at that price. You're getting the camera for almost free for the price of the lens.

I was gifted a roll of that a few years ago. It's aging in the basement like a fine wine. Maybe it's time to shoot it.

LX - what's it worth?

Ah, so I have the 3rd version. I have seen pictures of high locking collars, kind of like the ones on a Nikon F2. Are those after-market?

Mine does exhibit slight sticky mirror. Seems to behave fine after raising the mirror before shooting after a long stretch of inactivity (like a day or so). I just have to remember to "exercise" it.

From the test roll. It was actually the 2nd test roll. The first got screwed up when I forgot it was a yet-to-be-developed roll and opened the cassette intending to load it with bulk film.

Probably a combination of high ISO, misfocus, unstable tripod on soft ground, and really old lens. I was also shooting to JPG instead of raw for the faster write speed.

The Rikenon EE 200mm is an old M42 lens. The Q has become my wildlife camera so the 200mm lens is "permanently" attached.

Dumb question, but the LCD display will always show and shoot at 1/1000 until the frame counter is at 1. This "feature" prevents the leading frames from being metered and shot for long times with the lens cap on. I've been fooled into thinking I had a dud Super Program until I remembered this "feature".

For what it's worth I've had multiple bodies of the KX and MX. I still have and use an MX. The KX is a great camera. But I also have a Nikon FM2N so the KX was kind of redundant.

Film camera recommendations?

There was a time where I was looking for exactly what you're describing and went through many of the cameras suggested. I finally settled on the Program A/Program Plus. Sure, it has the shutter speed buttons like the ME Super. But honestly, went I want to grab this camera, I'm usually in program or AV mode, seldom in manual mode. If I do want to override the meter, then I'm using the EV comp dial instead of switching to manual mode.

I started posting photos of my cameras on Instagram. Here's my MX, Program A's (sliver and black), SV, and Auto 110 Super. Little tidbits of each are on Instagram but I'm too lazy to copy-paste here.

Somewhat related to the capping issue... it looks like the problem was limited to the first 3 frames (assuming the file order reflects the shooting order). Maybe your K1000 needed some "exercising" after a long period of not being used?

And yes, my local lab has gotten noticeably busy in Covid-times.

I've become a fan of the Program Plus/A. Slightly fewer features than the Super Program/A but they seem to be available in better shape and a lower price point. The only real downside is they're battery dependent. Also, don't overthink it too much. Get one in good shape and start shooting. Assuming you didn't get ripped off you'll be able to sell and recover most of what you spent if you find you want something else.

So I pulled the trigger on the Asahi stereo adapter and viewer (M42 version) that was for sale on the Marketplace a few weeks ago. I burned the entire roll the weekend before the wildfires out here in the northwest US turned our sky smoky. The scan with color cast correction looks better than the projected slide. And I can't get the 3D effect with the projected slide like I can on my 21" monitor. I was projecting onto a wrinkly surface so that probably affected my viewing. The 3D effect does pop better with the viewer. Hope to get some better examples with some fresh Ektachrome.

If you haven't already done so, see if you qualify for the free download of Silverfast SE: Download SilverFast Scanner Software for your Epson Scanner. It's quit better than the Epson software, although a bit of a learning curve.

I use a rocket blower. It gets most of the dust off. For the rest, I've resigned myself to spot-remove in Lightroom for the print-worthy scans. Otherwise, I leave as-is.

For storage, I use PrintFile pages and store in a Vue All Safe-T-Binder.

My workflow is to scan are medium resolution (1200-ish dpi) to JPG. Then I import into Lightroom for keywording, etc. For prints, I rescan up to 6400 dpi (I know there's little gain but I may want to print big) to TIFF.
