Pentax MZ-50

This camera does not belong here, it is too young to be considered a vintage and was not a classic model. I have it, so it is added. It was bought in the late 1990s when digital models began to pop up, low resolution and more of a novelty. The MZ-50 can do all; see specs below. All that in a compact, lightweight body and is (relatively) easy to use. A clear and concise manual is easy to navigate.
