New Toy

I spent a tenner and bought a vintage slr camera. No idea about its age though, I guess it's from the 1980s. It is loaded and ready to shoot! So I am hoping for nice weather and - sigh- some spare time to go out and take photos.
Nice one! Happy new (old) camera!

@carolineb7 thank you! I'm looking forward to try shooting on film!

I got a Zenith EM for my 21st birthday in 1979, and it looked similar, with the lightmeter above the same 58mm Helios lens. I think a common problem with old ones is that the lightmeter no longer works. Enjoy.

@laroque thanks for the info! So my guess it's from around 1980 was -well- roughly correct. I found a manual to download and spent the short spare time this weekend to figure out how the cam works. Lightmeter seems to be okay- let's see how the photos will turn out!

I have one quite similar to this. No idea of its history or anything!
