            I bought a Pentax K-01 a few months ago, there are still a few deals about on them (get the DA40 XS lens rather than the zoom, it's much better). It uses the same sensor and batteries as their K-5 but a live view LCD and no viewfinder.

            I know "proper" photographers regard such things as toys for amateurs but it actually has a few benefits. I find that it makes manual focus lenses much easier to use and it's great for shooting at low angles without having to lie in the mud. You can see your focus point moving fore and aft in a scene with faster lenses, for example. I've never been able to see that level of detail in a viewfinder.

            Sure, it's not as good as a viewfinder on very sunny days and it's not as good for action photography or longer lenses (why I also have the K-5, also that's weather sealed which the K-01 isn't) but I'm happy with it as a second body/take-it-everywhere camera. Pentax have a large back catalogue of small, fast prime lenses which suit it perfectly.

            I hate the one on my Fijifilm, It's horrid

            • Photography is something that I am interested in getting into however I will be starting completely and utterly at ground zero; I know almost nothing at this point. My current camera is just a Fujifilm FinePix S2950 bridge but I hope to get a DSLR for my 21st - The only problem I am really having with the Fujifilm is a lack of control over the camera; I learn best by just getting stuck in and it is really restricting my ability to do that.

              I have a huge love for older cameras and have got a small (well...) collection, all sorts of stuff. In no particular order (56k warning lol):

              This is the camera that started my collection, a 1980's Praktica B100. My father bought it new in the 1980's and it sat in a drawer for years and years until I pulled it out.

              Chonon 806SM film camera (?-?) Looks like an old police speed gun huh?

              Coronet Rex (?-?) I think this is the oldest camera I have.

              I bought the Kodak Popular Brownie on Ebay for about £12, the Chinon 806 SM for £19.98, the Praktica was my dads and the rest were 100% free


              • ^I started with one of those Fujifilm S2950's as well, upgraded to a Canon 1100D to get started in dslr's and havent looked back.

                The other week i got another lens, just a basic Canon 50mm f1.8 for photography at car meets, was cheap but is an amazing lens for the price

                      plus the 18-55mm and 55-200mm DX kit lenses that came with the camera


                      • Decided to pull the trigger and upgrade from DX to FX....but I went the safe route and bought a cheap second-hand D700 so if it doesn't turn out well I'm not that much out of pocket. Does mean I need to look at a whole bunch of new lenses though as the only FX lens I have is a 50mm


                        • I actually have some camera gear now lol

                          Bought a Canon 450D from my younger sister, she didn't use it anymore. Barely used, bought second hand a few years ago. Including kitlens.

                          Not starting a new hobby though, just to play with it a bit, take decent pictures. It came with a 450D specific book with tips and tricks so I might dive into that.
