Another point & shoot this week. The Pentax Zoom 60 was made in 1987 and is a fully automatic compact camera. Automatic focusing, automatic exposure control, automatic flash, automatic film-speed setting, automatic film loading, and automatic film winding/rewinding, all make it absolutely ideal for the novice. Or indeed someone who just wants to take pictures with film and is not concerned with the “how”.
This could be a great choice for street photography as it nice and small and discreet. Or perhaps the sort of camera you might take on a trip where bulky equipment would be an inconvenience. Enjoy the video and don’t forget to give it a thumbs up!
Part of the joy of photography for me, is the ability to experiment with the exposure settings. To create something and to be artistic. This is why I usually stay clear of cameras that take that experimentation away from us. However, if I’m going to break that self-imposed rule, then the Pentax A3 is a fine camera to start with.
Not only can this SLR operate in Aperture Priority mode, but with the right type of lens, it can be fully automatic. Leaving the photographer to deal with composition and focus only. In addition, it even features a powered film wind. Despite all this, I actually think its a nice camera, but more for a collector than a photographer perhaps.
