#78 - The K Mount Bargain
Cosina CT1a + Cosina 50mm f2
Great for: Easy metering, with a great range of Pentax lenses to choose from.
Condition: Very Good
Modes: Manual Only
So many advantages to this camera, where to begin?! If you've ever wanted to shoot a fully manual camera but have found it daunting, this would be a great choice. It's got a lovely bright and easy to use metering display, with a very simple traffice light system. Even a beginner could use it without stress. Being a late 70s camera it is light and compact, especially when compared to the fully manual tanks from the 60s and early 70. And, perhaps most importantly, those clever folk at Cosina built this using the Pentax K mount, so you can use any of the more expensive and high performing Pentax lenses on this budget body if you like - remember, the lens decides on the quality of your images, not the camera. Use that to your advantage, and pick up a bargain body and spend the money you've saved on top quality Pentax lenses!
Every FILTR film camera comes with everything you need to start shooting film straight away: 2 rolls of film, new light seals & a new battery.
