This is a really great early model of the K1000, with a metal body, built-in light meter, and comes with a 50mm f2 lens. This particular camera was previously in poor condition, but it has been fixed up considerably. Please do check the pictures very carefully before buying however, and do get in touch if you have any questions! A previous owner has engraved initials/postcode onto the camera body in a couple of places – these have been painted over but are still not completely obscured. The frame counter is also missing its top cover, but this does not effect use in any way – you can still keep track of frames via the little black mark.
I have shot and developed a roll of film using this camera, and was very happy with the results. If you can get past some of the aesthetic imperfections, this will be a fantastic work horse camera that is the perfect gateway to film photography!
Summary of work done on this camera:
