    So when my dad told me that my grandfather worked at Kodak and was a photographer, he also mentioned that he had a couple camera with lenses that I could use for my photography class. One of the bodies was a Pentax K1000 and the other, a Pentax MX. They each have different lenses. They are very different to me because I haven't seen anything by digital lenses. The bag also has a very old light meter with it as well. I still need to go through some of the stuff, but once I do, I'll take a picture and post some of it. Are the bodies decent at all?

    The k1000 is like the standard of your basic camera. It's super reliable though, it will work for generations.
