Pentax PC35AF-M

This was my compact camera in the 1980s when I was travelling a lot with work, so it has been to India and much of Europe, also Cyprus, Israel, Cairo and various holidays to Greece and Turkey. It pre-dates the compact zoom designs and has a fixed focal 35mm f2.8 lens which is very sharp, though sometimes wide-open the AF system doesn’t quite nail the focus as it has a limited number of steps and there is nothing can be done about this as the exposure system is fully programmed automatic with only a +1.5 stop backlight setting to boost exposure where there’s a bright background. Nonetheless, the results in good light are very good indeed!
