5-0 out of 5 stars I love this camera
I love this camera.It is one of the only manual cameras still being manufactured.Digital-electronic monstrosities (which are unbelievably expensive) simply cannot produce images like a simple manual camera with a good 50mm lens.
5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Value
Cosina is a "behind the scenes" Japanese manufacturer of many cameras and lenses, and have made cameras for many branded as high-end and entry level models for decades. If you purchases an SLR, or if you've amassed a collection 3rd party lenses, good chance you have something made by Cosina but didn't know it.

5-0 out of 5 stars From the Jungles to the Desert, Great Camera
Greetings, Hope this finds everyone to be in good health and happiness.I traded my minolta slr w/2 lenses and flash for the 3800N back in 2002 and have enjoyed it ever since. This camera is used primarily for B/W as well as continued learning of the fundamentals of photography and creative ideas. I have taken it through five different jungles in SE Asia, in the desert, and across fifteen states with no problems. If you have an idea of a grunts life, it isn't easy or clean. This camera takes the abuse and still performs they way it should.Maintain proper care and protection from the environment with all the accessories available and you 've got a great artistic kit at little cost. Have fun with this camera and be artistic.
5-0 out of 5 stars It Compares with the Best of Them
For the past 30 years, I have been a devoted Nikon user, though I have a Pentax K1000 and assorted Pentax lenses that were given to me as a gift about 20 years ago.The K1000 was misplaced in a move a few years ago (I'm sure it will turn up one day when I finally get to clean out my attic), and I was longing to use a fully manual SLR.I took a chance with the Vivitar V3800N as the price was right and it came with a better warranty than a used K1000.It could also use all of my Pentax lenses which I had not misplaced.I have put this camera through the wringer and it has come through on every occasion.For those who complain that the Vivitar lens quality is lacking in quality and performance (which I find not to be the case), there is an ample supply of new and used Pentax lenses which produce results that rival my Nikons.I frequently use the Vivitar lens and am delighted by its performance.The camera is built solidly and performs solidly.Results are consistent and I never worry about damaging it as it is not costly to replace.So, if you ever have the feeling that you want to be a true photographer rather than the caretaker of a small computer that takes photographs for you, I highly recommend the V3800N.Indeed, Nikon thinks so highly of it that they sell it as the FM-10 and will continue to have it manufactured for them by Cosina as one of two 35mm SLR's they will keep on the market in the digital age, the other being the Nikon-manufactured F6.The Vivitar is a well-made bargain that delivers!!Buy it and enjoy it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Accurate & Durable SLR without the high price!
Use this camera for learning photography or for shooting as an amateur especially if you want to go into manual mode for more creative photographic effects.The solidly constructed body and 35-70 macro zoom lens are both made in Japan.The camera accepts standard/widely-available K-mount lenses and Vivitar flashes.The focusing is very easy and the zoom mechanism is very smooth. This enabled me to take high quality photos without the need for expensive lithium batteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this little camera
So there I was... a college guy who wanted to do photography of the world around him and become the next (insert famous photographer) but had failed a class in high school and wasn't ready to drop a ton of cash on something he would be sick of in the next week.2-0 out of 5 stars WARNING
I like to think that I would love this camera, IF I had it yet. I ordered the thing on the 7th of September, paid for two day shipping, and still haven't recieved it on the 15th. Just let this be a warning to you the consumer. Read what you are paying for. Make sure 2-day shipping acutally means 2-day shipping. If not, write an email, request an apology and a refund, and if all else fails take your business elsewhere. ... Read more
