Pentax MZ-30 sample images

I bought a Pentax MZ-30 a while ago to build up my vintage camera collection and to try to obtain a copy of each of the MZ series. Although I’ve subsequently found the series to be quite unreliable and not really suitable for regular use, I did put a roll of Agfa Vista Plus 200 through my copy so I’ve created this post to show the results I obtained. These pictures were mostly taken with the Pentax FA 35-80 zoom […]

Description This is a very simple camera which has […]

I’ve been thinking for a while about getting a good 35mm autofocus camera (sounds a bit silly coming from someone who owns about 60 35mm cameras!) which I could take with me when I go anywhere to shoot with my Nex 6 or Pentax K5. Although I’m not someone who thinks that 35mm […]

Pentax MZ-50 samples

A couple of weeks ago I got a Pentax MZ-50 35mm slr as a new addition to my vintage camera collection and I was so impressed with it that I thought I would try a film in it to see how it performed. So I loaded a roll of Agfa color 200 film which I found in my drawer (which was actually slightly out of date), and took the camera to work one day so I could take some pictures […]
