After a crap ton if waffling and looking at things. I bought one of these.


More a long zoom camera. Great reviews from consumers and others .


  • My parents brought me a Pentax K-1000 back in early 70's from one of their vacations.

    I got all hot to trot on cameras, bought a 35 MMM W/A and an 80-205 Zoom.

    This was 35 MM SLR but the camera was a bayonet mount for the lenses.

    I found I can only take so many sunset pictures. I gave it away 10 years ago.

    Now I get my son to take my cat pictures with his phone.

No pictures attached.

Taking digital shots is going to be a lot cheaper than getting fast film. And no developing.

Got my camera yesterday. Aside from it not being in the original box, using a replacement charger, and no user manual( which is online).... flawless no scratches, nothing. On canons site for 300 now ....so 150 was a decent deal.

definitey need to figure it out. Glad i didnt buy a mirrorless or dslr, because i dunno what im doing lol.

thing i noticed is you half press the shutter to focus and full press to take a photo, thats tricky for me. Also the shutter is a bit slow but that's expected on this type of camera i think. Maybe it speeds up on different settings? Like “live”
