Always a Favorite – Asahi Pentax H2

Always a favorite with us the Asahi Pentax H2 – we like the clean lines and simple straightforward design. The H2 uses M42 mount lenses but can’t use all of the M42’s out there. Some Yashica and Fujinon M42 mounts aren’t always a good fit.

Here’s one from around mid-1960

If you can find a nice working H2 or S2 then we highly recommend it for your collection. They’re as manual as they come – no built-in exposure meter and a top shutter speed of only 1/500th of a second but their classic design win the day out in the field.

Happy FUNday!

The end of a long work week (for some) and the start of a busy and fun weekend (for some). We hope to get out and about this weekend for some picture taking as we’ve got two cameras loaded with film and ready to go.

Ash in the studio having some fun!

The two film cameras we’re looking to use this weekend? How about a c1956 Nicca S-3 rangefinder and a 1998 Yashica-Kyocera Profile 4000ix APS camera! The Nicca has some Fujicolor 800 loaded and the Yashica has Fujifilm 200 expired APS film.

We’ll post our pics as soon as we can.
