    Does not compute! Am I missing something? How can a camera have aperture priority if it does not have a working meter because the batteries are dead?

    As I read it, the OP is looking for a camera that has all it's manual speeds available, independent of the status of a battery, plus aperture priority auto-exposure when there is a functional battery installed.

    I see what you mean. I think there is a missing comma in the OP's headline.

    I also read the OP's headline as meaning a camera which has both aperture priority and all shutter speeds without a battery, which of course is impossible and I stated so earlier in this thread.

    One missing comma, two different meanings.

    There may be a missing comma. but I'd hazard a guess that the OP's facility with English is a heck of a lot better than my facility with Polish

    Why a comma when the word "and" is in the right place (as it is)?
    Now if it actualy said "both", but...

    I don't think that any of us were criticising the OP's English language skills. In fact I admire people whose native language is other than English, whether it be Polish or Mandarin, who take the trouble to learn English so that they can communicate better in the "global village". Meanwhile most of us native English speakers have the luxury of getting through life without having to bother to seriously learn another language.

    What I think is illustrated here is the phenomenon which has become more noticeable since the advent of email, text messaging etc that the perception in the reader's mind is often different to the original thought in the writer's mind.

    No aperature priority that I know of, but on the subject of mechanical cameras, I was just reading some interesting stuff on the Pentax MX earlier today. Supposedly built like a tank, pretty dependable, shutter up to 1/1000 but still totally mechanical (a battery is used but only for the light meter). What got me reading was a blurb about how it has the largest viewfinder or some such.

    The more I read, the more it impressed me. If I weren't already in the Canon AE-1P fan club, I'd go for the Pentax MX.

    Canon EF, almost. Shutter priority automation from 30sec to 1/1000 with a battery, mechanical operation 1/2 to 1/1000 without.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.
