I loved the split prism of my old Pentax camera. I had bought it for my first college photography course where we had to shoot film and develop ourselves. It’s fun to revisit that camera. Reminds me, I have a roll of film in there I need to have scanned/developed. (I now take film to a camera shop that does negative scanning, I’m guessing all film processing is done that way now since there aren’t many darkrooms around right?) The split prism was a great way to focus.
Does anyone who wears contact lenses have problems with manual focusing? I haven’t noticed myself to, though I usually use autofocus set on one of the focus points. I have heard that even with vision correction it can still be “off.” My vision isn’t terrible but I have to wear contacts (never wear glasses, I hate them). Is this true?
