Oliver Knight has very kindly donated a well-traveled Pentax ME Super to the Camera Collection. It has been donated by Oliver on behalf of Joan Munissi, the camera belonged to her family and It sounds like it has been many times around the world from the stories he has told me. Many thanks, Oliver and the Munissi family, It is much appreciated.
Pentax ME Super, Launched in 1976 it was an upgrade of the fully automatic Pentax ME. The ME Super was an early adopter of electronic controls replacing the more traditional knobs and dials. It has two black buttons that control the shutter speed settings this was viewable as it changed settings in the viewfinder.

Donated by Jillian Doylend of Powys. The OM1 was a gift from her husband so she could take photos of her son growing up. Later he purchased the OM10 so they could both take shots to print and process themselves. Jillian also kindly donated her Fathers Weston meter and a changing bag he picked up in Dresden during WW11. He was with the TOPO Engineers (US Army). The OM1 has given Jillian great pleasure over the years and has captured many magic moments and great photos. Thanks again to Jillian for the great camera donations.
