Re: A portrait that nearly was...
Yes, I was really pleased (and envious) that she's getting a chance to shoot film. Our Pentax's were P30Ts, and they gave us good service for the money. I'd forgotten how hard the meter is to read though - it hides a long way to the left of the viewfinder and can be hard to see if you're wearing glasses. On the other hand, the viewfinder is so big and bright compared to my digital camera, and, oh bliss, oh joy, oh sweet rapture - a proper split prism focussing aid! Why did they ever get rid of those?
