Best Vintage Camera for Beginner

Postby Tiletaer » Tue Jul 16, 2019 10:41 am

I am looking for a vintage (60s to 80s) camera to start using as a hobby. It will probably be mostly used for family pictures. I bought a Petri 7s from Ebay, but the lens shutters broke almost immediately, so I'm looking for something else now. I know very little about cameras, so while I want an older manual (or semi-manual) camera, I also want something that is easy to use and not too expensive. I saw some good cameras at https://cameravs.com, but I'm not experienced in photography. Any suggestions? I'm not sure if a rangefinder is the best way to go, or if I should be looking more at SLR cameras like the Nikon FM or Pentax K1000. TIA.
