My Pentax Spotmatic with its set of genuine Takumar lenses (much more humble 
than a Hasselblad t'is true) produced 
clearly superior photographs when everyone saw them compared against quite 
expensive point and shoot jobbies, even 
when processed by Boots.  Sadly the camera has started to fail (bought new in 
1970) because the oil has gummed and the 
shutter jams in cold weather.  No-one wants to clean it locally for a realistic 
price, and getting film is 
increasingly difficult.  I haven't used it therefore for some time now.  I 
can't bring myself to chuck it out though.
