Camera: Pentax ME

Pentax ME | 35mm Film Camera

A couple of days before I went on holiday to Canada my beloved Pentax ME Super stopped working and I panic bought a new one from eBay.  The replacement camera didn’t arrive on time but magically my Pentax ME Super started working again!

When I returned from my holiday I realised that what I had actually received was a Pentax ME, it has fewer functions than the Super. Nonetheless, it is still a pretty cool camera and I am still in the phase of testing it.
