Random Film Point and shoots

Pointandshoots-8501

At some point I acquired these cameras with the idea of running a roll of film through them and blogging about it but they have sat in the “Too be chosen bin” for awhile now with no sign of making it out.  So I decided to apply a new test or more accurately a thought experiment.  Would I want to expend a roll of Kodak Portra 400 in them, and they were found lacking.  Looking at them all sitting there it has become clear to me that its the 38mm wide end. The no mans land of focal lengths.  Not nearly wide enough and the telephoto end isn’t that spectacular either.  The Minolta has the nicest finish and the Pentax is the most ubiquitous, you almost always need to push some aside to get at the other cameras at a thrift store.  So for not having made the cut these ones will find their way back to a thrift store.  I just need to make sure I don’t buy them back accidently.
