One of my dear uncle who was an avid photographer (he passed away 4 years ago) gave me one of his old camera many years ago. It was a Pentax LX with an assortment of lenses like the Pentax SMC 50mm f/1.2. The Pentax LX is a classic camera brought out by Pentax to compete with the Canon F-1 and the Nikon F3 which was the top of the range cameras at that time. This is a camera that was built to last. I am not sure when my uncle bought his but I’m pretty sure that it must now be at least 20 years old. Apart from the sturdy construction, it also boasts a revolutionary metering technique which allows the camera to meter directly off the film plane which makes for truly accurate metering.
I decided to dig up the camera and sent it for servicing and am now taking pictures with it.
