May was National Photo Month, the former home of Take Your Camera to Work Day, and the month I was born, so you might say it’s a month for celebrating the art and science of making images, no matter what that medium—film or digital—may be.

In 1979 Pentax launched the ME Super as a manual focus, aperture-priority automatic SLR with an electronic focal plane shutter. It was small, light, and by all reports had excellent ergonomics.
