“This is my favorite film camera, mostly for nostalgic reasons. It was my dad’s camera. I used it 30 years ago in jr high school, but then my parents got divorced, and it was 30 years before I heard from my dad again. I had been scanning some of the old film I shot back then, and just out of curiosity I asked my dad if he still had the camera. Incredibly, he did, and he said he’d hardly ever used it, and it was still basically brand new. He packed it into a box and mailed it to me with two lenses— the kit 50mm f/1.8, plus a nice Tokina pump-action zoom — and the original set of user guides. When I told my mom about this, she laughed and said, “That was my camera! He bought it for me for my birthday because HE wanted it!””
