My Dad used to have one of these in the 70's, regretted selling it, then bought one off ebay a few years ago and gave it to me. It's not a very expensive camera, but it's been great.
Of course this is the camera you use
Also, thanks everybody for the compliments. That picture of the falls is in fact the American side. Real easy to get to from Buffalo and usually deserted at night except for a few small groups of tourists.
I think the next step is learning how to develop/do some prints myself.
And Alisa, you should definitely bust out the old camera!
I got the photography bug pretty hard and after many years, after graduating college I rekindled my interest in photography last year. I now shoot with a T3i, but would love to borrow Dad's camera again soon and return to where it all started.
This was my first attempt at photographing stars. There was a bit of light pollution where I took this but in the future I want to drive way out in the middle of nowhere and get in some good practice so someday when I finally make it to Iceland I can take some cool night sky pictures.
