Black Beauty…or BEAST!
It’s a full frontal view of my K1000 – otherwise known as the Beast. It’s about twenty pounds and made of steel. Not really, but it is heavy and most of the parts are steel. It’s still got some old beauty and a retro feel to it that makes me love it. There’s no molded hand hold, no battery/auto rewind pack, no zoom lens. Just a prime lens (with a great aperture of f1.7) and a light meter that tells me if I have too much or too little. Beautiful.
