Jan 2: Simple

I lied on the 22nd Dec when I said I had no more old cameras to show. This is my Pentax ME. So simple, yet so good. The mode dial, such as it is, offers L, Auto, 100X and B. There's EV compensation on the film speed dial, and the aperture (Auto being aperture priority) is on the lens. The shutter speed is displayed in the viewfinder. Very simple and very well made, but it's the handling that makes the ME so nice to use. I think they messed it up with the push button manual over ride ME Super too many buttons. I had an ME Super for a while too, but traded it for a film scanner...

other sizes: small medium original

Messed it up on the MESuper? But it was called Super. Must have been better! Now, the MESuperTurboSportGTILeMans would have been a world beater...

Great shot and the ME was a great camera!
