I never thought I'd get one of them, but there was a 500 el/m on craigslist for a hundred and ten bucks...couldn't resist--GLAD I got it--man are they NICE---I can really see these things encouraging you to burn the film, man....I love just hitting the button and having the mirror come back automatically and wind and not having to move my hands around to crank..I can keep my hand on the focus of the lens and the other hand on the trigger! these things change the shooting style almost immediately-- if you never tried one, hey--I highly recommend--I used to be only "manual only" but man...these things rock!!!! got the 9 volt conversion....LOVE it!!!! Or maybe it's just "new toy" syndrome there's one at KEH right now for 109 bucks!!!! somebody please buy it so I don't get another one just to "get the deal"...I found myself looking at it 3 times today...WHY...I just got the other one yesterday and haven't even pulled a roll of film through it yet....but already I'm scheming to get a backup camera....I do NOT need another--I didn't NEED this one...BUT now GLAD I got it!!!!!
