    I have read some news regarding the release of 35mm analog cameras some time during the end of last year or the beginning of this year with three different mounts.

    Unfortunately, I forget the name of the manufacturer. Can anybody have an idea about the release?

    about $300 which is roughly around P12000 in my country, seems pretty ok, but i'll wait for the reviews, OR start saving up for a darkroom

    Thanks for posting the link. I had not seen those before. It is cool the way the style them to look like different cameras in each mount. The Nikon mount camera looks like a Nikon FM and the Yashica camera looks like a FX3-2000.

    Interesting. An FM2n clone, and a Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 clone. I don't know which Pentax body the K mount is based on. I would make an educated guess and say that Cosina actually manufactures the bodies?

    ETA accordind to the Pentax Forum thread, the bodies are made in China by Phoenix.

    Oh yes! but I think I'll set my heart for an OM4ti instead, a quick read through the thread i posted gave me this :

    Promaster 2500PK
    and
    VSL43 K-Mount Voigltander SLR

    I can't however seem to find any pictures for the Voigtlander one
