    Can anyone give me an idea of the difference between the SRT 101 and
    the SRT 102? I'm looking for a camera for my daughter, for photography
    class, and I have the choice between these two models, but don't know
    the differences.

    Any help?
    Thanks,

    DP

    Some do and some do not have mirror lock-up (MLU is all too important to
    me). If it does, this is indicated by a small round metal swich/knob on the shutter
    side of the lens mount, easier to use than it looks. By this chart, you can see the
    srt-102 is the more desireable one, and these two srt models are the only ones that
    sported a mirror lock-up. I use a Pentax K2, and I want to have SEX with it...
    LOL. But, since I have some Tamron lenses (are sharp) and an adaptall-2 Minolta
    MD mount for them, I am considering an srt-102.

    LOL, I just bought a new KM with 55mm F1.8 lens, same as my first one I got
    in 1978, sadly that one was stolen about five years ago.

    I had an SRT 101, and I'd still be using it today, except for Katrina. It
    is most often recommended for students. I don't think there is too much
    difference between the two.

    The 102 can take double exposures more readily.

    The only difference is that the 102 has aperture readout in the
    viewfinder and a hot shoe while the 101 does not..
