    Being one of those born in the "Strawberry Generation", film cameras aren't totally foreign. But by the time we grow up and start working, digital has taken over. So I never really got to own my very own film camera.

    Digital is convenient and all, but somehow black & white photography in digital just seem to lack something. Or it simply feels unauthentic to me when you can easily convert that colour image to b&w in a single click.

    So one faithful day, I saw this used camera shop at the ground floor of Peninsula Excelsior Hotel. Much to my surprise, not only do they have the pictured camera that I have been eyeing, they had two units. One of them was in pretty bad shape, while the other looked almost perfect. Amazing for a camera that is made in the 70s.

    So without hesitation, I grabbed the good one at just $100, which is the typical price even if you buy one online. The owner of the shop was really experienced, as he patiently showed me every detail of the camera to the film-idiot me.

    For his patience, his experience shown in handling the camera, and the good price he gave, I'm giving him a 4-star. Knocking off one star was due to the other unit that was in really bad shape. The lens was ridden with fungus, which I really do not think it should be sold at the same $100 price tag. So be sure to check meticulously if you choose to purchase a used camera here.
