I have a blog that is has been inactive for quite a while, you can browse it following this link.

I'm starting to move, upgrade and add new content to it here on Câmaras & Companhia virtual museum.

I plan to publish an article every week about the cameras in my collection. 

The links to the articles will be shared on my Facebook timeline, also on the one on the Câmaras & Companhia Facebook page, so you can be alerted for new articles.

Why a Spotmatic?

We might say that it all began with it. I was about five, we are talking 1966. My uncle Jorge Sá Dantas came back from Angola, an old portuguese colony, where he served in the army and brought a Pentax Spotmatic, with several lenses, filters and other accesories, everything neatly tucked in a Pentax dedicated black leather case. 

It was the first SLR that I had in my hands, in that moment I decided, this is the type of camera that I'm going to have when I grow up.

In a matter of fact, my first SLR was a Zenit E, and afterwards a few Nikons. 

It took me about forty years to get a Spotmatic, this beautiful black example, it was a gift from my parents for my 49th birthday.
