Frugal Film Project – Sherry Christensen


Sherry first picked up a film camera in 2016, a bit of a latecomer to the craft. She is a 51 year old grandmother who lives on a farm just outside of Irma, Alberta, Canada. “I enjoy looking through the thrift stores to find camera gear.” Her camera was one of those finds. 


Pentax MV with 50mm f/2 Pentax lens – $5 thrift store find 

Pentax AF220T flash – $5 thrift store find 

2 Duracell 357 batteries $8 

Gear – total $18 




Kodak Max 200 sourced from my local Wal-Mart, $12.88 for three rolls. Only option available.  $54.09 (tax inc) 

Will be home developing in a unicolor c-41 kit and scanning myself. $51.50 (inc tax & shipping)  

Total cost of gear & supplies for this project: $123.59  CDN

  1. Never ever used Pentax but fine cameras and lenses.

    1. Yes, they are. This wasn’t one of their most popular models… but it is simple to use and the lens is sharp.
