Beautiful, excellent quality 35mm SLR manual camera

  • Summary: The Vivitar V3800N is a mechanical manual SLR film camera, as for 2011, you can still buy it brand new. I believe it's a fantastic camera. Besides being all manual, it's surprisingly easy to use. It doesn't really needs batteries to work, only for the very accurate meter. Like the Nikon FM10, this camera is made by Cosina.

  • Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter to use in her college "intro to photography" class. It was exactly what she needed. It proved to be easy to learn to use and I would recommend it to others looking for a similar product.

Very pleased with this camera

  • Summary: I am using this camera for a university photography class (black and white) and am very happy with it. It has half-stops for more accurate aperture settings, which I'm really appreciating now that we're shooting. It feels very sturdy and has a good response. My first prints are looking good. It seems I can do everything with this camera that I should be able to do at this level. Good price, and with case, carrying bag, strap, etc.

Vivitar V3800N, a good basic camera.

  • Summary: This is a great 35mm. film camera for the student or advanced photographer. It accepts the K-mount lenses which are plentiful and in-expensive on the used market. Although it does not have the build quality of a Nikon or some of the other "big name" cameras, it has every feature required to take excellent photos.The exposure meter in mine is highly accurate and can be relied upon, ( if you know how to use a center weighted manual meter).

Incredible product, strongly recommended

EdSanAlva, B&H Photo
25 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Vivitar V3800n camera for my photography course at the University of Puerto Rico in Arecibo and it is GLORIOUS. This is a solid metal body camera on Pentax K-mount 28-70 mm Lens that's SLR and completely manual. I've used more than ten rolls with it and I'm very happy with it. It's a little heavier than most cameras, but the payoff is that it's much sturdier.
