Pentax Zoom 105 Super

Inspired by Peter Elgar's video review, I dug out my Pentax Zoom 105 Super. This is a camera of its time. It is pretty ugly, but has a myriad of features including close-up settings and so on. I managed to use about 2/3rds of a roll before it stopped playing ball, and the roll had sat in the camera for quite a while since then. I finally got it out using a dark bag and sent it off for developing. It still sort of works (enough for the photo) but I wouldn't use another roll in it. Some of the pictures and sharp, some are terrible. I don't think the autofocus is very good.

Despite the current fad for using film compact cameras, in general I find them very disappointing and would rather use an SLR. The MX with the 40mm pancake lens is no bigger than this ugly beast.

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

Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
