Good shot of a lovely camera.


I only got rid of mine because I was getting tired of the M42 screw-mount, and Olympus had just released their beautiful OM-1n.


Gotta love film photography - just because it makes for a more thoughtful approach.

Nice! Very retro. So you shoot primarily with film, huh?

Thanks! Recently I have been using primarily film, but everything on dA right now is digital. Since I got my Spotmatic in November I've taken under 10 digital pictures total, whereas I'm on my fourth roll of film. (24 shots/roll on the kind I have.) That's partly because I prefer film, but mostly because my digital P&S makes a really high-pitched noise that hurts my ears.

I tend to only use my digital camera for wildlife shots where I have to get really close to them, now, since the noise doesn't seem to bother them as much as it bothers me. The couple of pictures I took yesterday being a rare exception, since I don't have a second fully-functional film camera right now.

If I had a digital camera that didn't make high-pitched noises I'd definitely use digital a lot more, but I like not being able to see what my last shot was. It forces me to move on to the next shot instead of looking at what I've already gotten. I'd absolutely love a DSLR where I could turn off the screen completely. ;)

...now if only I could remember to get the film developed...
