**Phenix DC303N + Pentax 50mm f1.7 lens**
+ instructions manual, in original packaging.
This is a camera that I bought in 2004 when I was doing an art portfolio preparation course in Stillorgan College.
It is a sturdy metal camera that was specifically designed to help people learn photography. It only has a manual mode, nothing automatic. You have to wind on the film after each shot. Or not, so then you can make a double exposure.
But be sure to not overexpose! It has a light meter to help you gauge the exposure settings you're choosing. This is the only thing that the batteries (included) are used to power. Everything else is by hand or spring.
The price is for the camera body and lens, which is removable.
I also have a shutter release cable which I'd sell for €10. This is an invaluable accessory for taking long exposure / night photos, because you can plug it into the camera and take a photo without pressing the shutter and thus causing the camera to vibrate.
On this blog article you can read more about the Phenix and see photos taken with it:
The camera has been in storage for 10 years, in dry, room temperature conditions. I have given it some cursory testing in recent days. But if any major problems show up, let me know and I will give you your money back.
Swap? I would be interested in swapping for a lens that fits on Canon cameras.
