Minolta’s SR-T series cameras are great. If you find a working one, pick it up. The SR-T 202 I used to own had a busted light meter but it was still a pleasure to shoot. See my updated review here.

I had simply too many great mechanical SLRs, and it didn’t make sense to keep them all. This Minolta SR-T 101 didn’t make the cut and I sold it last year. Which says a lot about the caliber of mechanical SLRs I own, because this is a wonderful camera. Read my updated review about it here.

The last time I used my Pentax KM, I dropped it on a stone floor. It bent something in the lens mount and now the aperture control on any mounted lens turns stiffly. I’m still heartsick over it. One day, hopefully soon, I’ll send it off for repair. Meanwhile, you can read my updated review of this fine camera here.

Meet the Olympus 35RC. I know people go gaga for these little 35mm rangefinders. I just didn’t take to mine. It’s a fine camera, no argument. Read my updated review here.

This metal, mechanical 35mm SLR is fairly typical of its early-1970s era. What sets it apart is a wonderful 50mm f/1.7 lens. Check out my updated review here.

From the time they were new I always wanted to try a Polaroid SX-70. It seemed so magical! It took me 41 years to get around to it. I’ve updated my review; read it here.
