    Anybody got any good online places for film processing?

    you will find it very economical to do your own negitives. id stick with the Arista developer, very cheap and works nicely

    I wasn't hating, I'm buying a F100 Nikon here soon. I just though it was a digital one, which I wouldn't buy for a penny :)

    Yep, so easy even my wife can do it. These are from her first roll that she's ever developed herself (and first time with a non digital slr):

    You wouldn't buy a 14.6MP, weather-sealed SLR for a penny?

    I'm just sayin' . . .

    Back on topic - the K1000 is an outstanding first camera. You will learn so much more about photography without an auto setting.

    My mom had a pretty good outfit. Vivitar flash with 90 degrees of pivot and all the manual settings on it. Bracket for the flash that lets you put it offset to the left or right of the camera.

    UV Filters, hoods, a 1:2 50mm Pentax lens, a 1:3.5 28mm-80mm and a fixed zoom I can't remember the F I think it's 1:3.8, and it's 150mm.

    Trigger cable, bayonet to screw mount adapter etc etc etc. Huge back of stuff.
