    "This is definitely a vintage camera, however this only solution only leads me to a page selling many of the same product. It doesn't show me anything of value besides pricing from different sellers. There are barely any pictures and no descriptions of the product. When clicking on the actual product info; It does give some information, but its very lacking. Barely any pictures and any product information."

    "Originally I thought this would be just a novelty purchase, but once i started using it I honestly liked it better than my new canon 6Ti. The lens is perfect for wide shots, and the film quality is great. Just make sure you have access to a darkroom so you can print yourself!"

    "The Pentax Asahi K1000 is a fun and useful vintage style camera. It has a great, timeless look and works well. I have had it for over a year with no problems. If you want the latest and greatest technology with all the bells and whistles, this isn't for you. If you're looking for a classic vintage camera, I highly recommend it."

    "The 1995 Nikon FM10 is the student's or novice's perfect camera. The Nikon FM10 this model brings all of the controls necessary to learn about the skills that a film photographer must have, all of which translate directly into digital cameras and their supporting software."

    "This camera is so vintage it's hard to believe and I'm very pleased with it. It looks vintage on the outside but on the inside its pretty modern. It is kind of awkward to handle but it's very fun to use and show off."

    "Wow! Talk about the good ole days! Way before we had cell phones with cameras. There was The Poloroid. It was one of the first instant picture devices made! You just had to point shoot and presto! You had a photo. When these first came out you had to drop off your film and wait a week or so to get your pics back. "
