My latest bargain

My latest purchase. A Pentax PC35AF-M from 1984. It cost a whopping £2 from a bric-a-brac stall at the local country fair, including two working AA batteries! I quadrupled its value by putting a film in it.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Great buy Kris, it's a cracking little camera - they were a really good seller for Pentax just before the phenomenally successful Zoom 70 (90, 105, 70S, etc) series. Generally you could tell the quality compacts of that era by the aperture of the fixed focal length lens - those with an f2.8 were a real notch above - Canon Sureshot Supreme, Olympus AF-1, etc.

And, is that a genuine Pentax tripod? I'd like to see more of it. Discontinued accessories do interest me, strangely.
