Bought when I was in Year 11 (aka Form 5 in 1979) this was my introduction to 35mm SLR photography. This was a great reliable camera which saw many years and miles of service.
Whilst in Fiji I bought a zooms lens for it and the disadvantage of the screw mount lens became obvious. It was very easy to cross thread the mount if you weren’t careful.
At this time I began processing my own films using a Paterson film tank and an LPL Enlarger. I never got into colour as the process is expensive and you need to have precise control over the temperatures of your chemicals.
