The annual Albuquerque Art Museum car show provided me an opportunity to try out my latest thrift store find, a Pentax K1000.
The star of the show was this graceful 1934 Studebaker; they are rather rare, and I don't recall seeing one before.
My K1000 was built prior to 1978 when manufacturing was moved from Japan to China, so it is all metal. The film advance is not quite as smooth as my older Spotmatics, but it is otherwise quite nice. There is no on-off switch for the meter, so one must always have a lens cap handy to avoid burning up the battery. The K1000 can be used in auto-exposure or full manual modes. A good over-view of the camera can be found on the Wikipedia page.
I also shot some color with my new cell phone camera at the car show. The pictures are on my other blog.
