My latest video features the Halina 3000. Made in 1974, it’s a 35mm viewfinder camera. The camera has a battery-free selenium light meter. But this only gives a reading and doesn’t control the exposure automatically. The 3000 has two “siblings” which don’t have any metering. The 1000 and the 2000.
You can pick these up on the likes of eBay for very little outlay and so give it a try. You might find it grows on you.
