Which film camera? What features do you want, or more importantly, not want?
Go to Bojimar's site for info on all of the film bodies and lenses:

WOW thanks for the link!

I don't really care much about the specs, just something that will work with my current pentax lens. This won't be my main camera, it will just be something so I can experiance a film camera.

Thanks for the link again.

if you want to really learn about taking photos, settings and what they mean and do

the good old K1000 will teach you a lot, it is really basic and will even work with no batteries, then you need to learn the sunny 16 rule

with the old lenses with depth of field indicators you can see your depth of field without looking in the viewfinder

you can locate the hyper focal distance etc etc

all will be usefull when using an auto digital camera later on

No its not that I want to learn the basics of photography, I already know that. I have a pretty nice dSLR right now the k100D. I just want to expriance developing film since I never did that before.

It seems like I will be the owner of a K1000 since I was able to get one for free. I was talking to one of my co-worker and he said that he has an old Pentax K1000 body from his dad that he does not use anymore.
