It's very cool! I've found everything in it so far, and I've been searching the net for more information. Mine (it's mine now) has the timer lever on the bottom, versus the one on the side of the lens. Fortunately I learned how to shoot on a Pentax K-1000, so manual w/ film is no big deal. I also have a hand-held light meter, so this should be fun. In the next few days I'll be going to a local camera store to get a role of (*gasp*) film.

Your karma in the universe has definitely increased. Thank you. :D

Anytime! Glad I could help :) I'll put up a picture of mine, it even has a hotshoe (well, coldshoe on this camera) mounted CdS light meter for some true 1950s cred haha.

If you can get your hands on a roll of Fuji Superia 200, I would highly recommend it! I've been shooting that and love it...in fact, I bought up every roll in town and storing it securely in my little freezer ;)

And here's something I *WISH* I could shoot...but they haven't made the film disc for it for about 20 years :(

Kodak Tele-disc

The telephoto is activated by pushing the flash to the left and letting it spring back...this separates the flash more from the body and puts a magnifying lens in front of the normal lens and the viewfinder window...ta-da...telephoto :D

I'd like to say I am open to shooting with anything. But if the camera isn't going to give me a shot that I want to look at more than once, then what's the point? I might as well just be pretending to take pictures at that point.

I look forward to seeing a photo of yours!

On Fuji Superia, the local store (Penn Camera) doesn't show it online (but I'll check in person anyway). Also, Adorama and B&H only have the 400 (though B&H does have a Fuji 200 speed). I'm actually interested in going B&W. I'm really figuring this isn't going to work very well, but I can't wait to try it anyway.

I remember the disc cameras. I didn't know they had a telephoto version of the camera, but I'm not surprised. Too bad they don't make the film anymore.

I know! It would be a fun camera to monkey with...

for B&W I suggest Ilford! :D Are you planning on developing it yourself or having someone develop it? If you're not going to do it yourself, make sure you get C41 process B&W film (can be developed anywhere where they develop colour)

I'll have someone else do it. Yes I saw they now have C41 B&W film. The local camera store carries Ilford and does C41 B&W processing. Joy! :D

I'll shoot whatever camera happens to be handy when I want to take a picture. I don't carry my DSLR rig with me everywhere I go, so it often ends up being my iPhone or P&S. I won't try to make the argument that photos taken with the iPhone are as good as the DSLR, because they're certainly not - however, sometimes any picture is better than no picture at all. If it turns out that it's not a keeper, oh well - there's always the handy-dandy "delete" button.

It used to be my p&s, but I've noticed I'm using my cell phone more. It's so convenient.
