Ma collection de Pentax annex (p. 4) My Pentax Collection annex
 

 

My Samsung 210 SE. Sometimes it decides it doesn't want to take a picture and it has a home-made bracket on the bottom to hold the battery door shut. But it works most of the time...

The Nikon Coolpix 4600. It works all the time, is very easy on batteries but is as complicated as Linux!

My first serious camera that my brother helped me buy, we later did a trade (see below) - he still has the Ricohflex.

Current state of the M-series collection:

ME F - #1) clean working, for the collection
......#2) parts or fixer upper
ME Super - #1, #2 and #3 have been tested and sold
......#4) body with jammed mirror, waiting to be fixed
......#5) parts body
ME - #1) a very clean example that is for sale
..........#2) working but missing the speed selector dial
MG - #1) jammed shutter has been fixed - is for sale
..........#2) currently being reassembled after shutter repair
MV1 - decent black body for the collection
MV -
MX - #1) donated to my brother, a decent fixer upper
..........#2) mint body for the collection.

As I remember this was what I got in exchange for the Ricohflex, my first Pentax, a S1a. Later it returned to my brother who still has it.

My incursion into the K series
The SMC Pentax AF 35-70/2.8 lens came with a Pentax K1000 which has had the light meter fixed and has been sold.
- 2 other K1000s have been fixed and are for sale
- Pentax K1000 SE with brown leatherette - top cover needs some work, this may be an addition to the collection
- Pentax KM, needs some work, the film advance doesn't, may keep it for the collection also

Other interesting things that I have picked up:

- Yashica Electro 35, working with wide angle and telephoto lenses
- 3 vintage light meters, 2 GE and a CORONET/WALZ
