Pentax LX Review
In early 1980 both Nikon and Canon came out with their anticipated third generation pro camera models while Pentax released their first interchangeable viewfinder 35mm camera just in time for their 60th anniversary and appropriately designated the LX. But unlike it's interchangeable viewfinde...

Pentax SFXn/SF1n Review
I have just got this in excellent condition but the select button isn't working I can't select any modes set iso or exposure compensation. However I got it with 2 CR5 batteries 3 boxes of cheap agfa film and a sigma AF 35-70mm f3.5 -f4.5 lens which is multi-coated and has a 52mm rotating front ...

Pentax K-50 Review
The Pentax K50 is a solid, satisfying camera, its sensor is capable of excellent results but it is still lacking a bit in terms of focus speed. Even though I really like this camera, I'd never recommend it where shooting video is a must, while for photo-oriented tasks I'd say it's still very good in...

Pentax 6x7 Review
This is the mother of all cameras, huge and heavy, but the shots are perfect. You just have to focus and shoot. I got the body only for the price shown above. The camera was in almost mint condition. It came with manuales, box, etc. No lens came with it. I have the 6x7 with the metering prisma and ...

Pentax 645 Review

The shutter sound is a bit scary, like the thing has something loose inside, but the shots are great. I recommend it. Y...

Pentax ME Super Review
I have borrowed or owned a few MES cameras over the years. Some have been sold due to pressing economic need or to finance another camera purchase. One was unfortunately dropped and stopped working, and my latest developed a wind on problem. For a long time the MES was my joint favourite film camera...

Pentax K-3 Review
I bought the K3 to replace my aging K200D, mostly to get better AF, better high ISO image quality and to stop using AA batteries, which cause a lot of problems in the K200D (even using the best ones available on the market). I was happy to find that the K3 is a success in all of those counts. AF...
