Pentax Super A | 35mm Film Camera
After messing around with my Pentax ME Super for a few months I started to look around for another camera with some more updated settings on it. I can across the Pentax Super A.
It has a few more exposure modes than the Pentax ME or Super and still supports the K-Mount lens type which was good for me as I had a couple of them already.
