doing it properly

recently got a salary adjustment from my job, which fortunately coincided with my wanting to go legit with photography, and get an SLR camera. specifically, a 24 year-old russian SLR camera at a consumer-grade point-and-shoot film camera price.

beat that, photography smugs.

picture of actual item

the ‘overpricers‘ at lomography are selling a newer zenit model, the (122k), and an MC Zenitar lens for a whopping $275. come on, for an SLR with a top speed of 500, will you spend that much money? :/
