Here's my Zorki 4. I have some half used film in it, but as I wear specs I'm frightened the metal viewfinder will scratch the Ray Bans, I wish I could remember to use the diopter.

I love seeing these Konicas- my plan in 1980 was to get a Konica TC as that was the closest thing to an Olympus OM-1, which I couldn't afford with my paper route money. Then, two Texas billionaires named Hunt tried to corner the silver market (kinda), prices spiked, I sold a bunch of silver coins my grandfather left me from his old laundromat, bought an OM-1, and the rest is history... BTW, those guys also served as the inspiration for the movie Trading Places, so I really appreciate what they did ;-)

That old OM-1 was stolen while I was in high school, but my parents recently got me a replacement for nostalgic purposes, might as well post it here:

I used mine for backpacking all over - it's for sale due to the GM5...

My first two cameras (still have the 2nd - EXAKTA varex IIb with waist level viewfinder and pentaprism), I was about 11 or 12yrs old when I started photography.
