As I researched the Nikon F3, right away titles with words like the greatest SLR ever made, Legendary, and Classic all jumped out at me. This was interesting to me because I'd come across similar titles when researching the F2. In my view, these two cameras are very different.

If you are just starting out in film photography, the Pentax ME Super is a great choice. It is so small you can carry it in your purse or coat jacket. It also has a great blend of automatic and manual features. There is so much packed into such a small body, and yet it… Continue reading The Pentax ME Super – the Camera that Proves Size Isn’t Everything
