Pentax Ringo

> I saw today the Beatles anthology on video and when they went to America the> first time,> Paul says: We had a lot of fun taking photographs with our Pentax.> Later you see some photos of Ringo Starr and George Harrison with cameras.> > Are there any more famous Pentax users than the Beatles?>

You should get a hold of a copy of Hard Day's Night. In it, Ringowalks around with his beautiful black pre-Spotmatic around his neckquite a bit.

There are several other celebs who are captured sporting Spotties backin the '60's. One that I recall was an English Royal, one of theprincesses, maybe Anne? Anyway she had one, and she was photographedwearing it.

Don't forget, back in the 60's, Spotmatics outsold all other brands of35mm SLR - combined! Hard to believe, but true. There were lots of'em out there....
