Pentax MX Review
I've had two of these. The first just perplexed me and then I saw another all beaten up and tried again only to end up where I was before. On paper there is a lot to like about the MX. The viewfinder is quite good, the judas window giving you the aperture read out; the disc carrying the shutter...

Ricoh GR III Review
I've owned the GR III since its USA release, so I'm as close as you can get to a grizzled old-timer with this particular camera. I gave up the excellent GR II to be able to buy this one as soon as it came out. It's worth it in every way, but the GR II is a fantastic camera in a slightly different wa...

Ricoh GR III Review
I've pre-ordered the GR III, so I've had it since release. My first camera in the series. I also have a Pentax DSLR, but if I could only keep one camera and one lens, this would be it. In my opinion (biased by my linking of this camera), the GR III is great value for money. No, it's not cheap or af...

Pentax P3 / P30 Review
The Pentax P30 is often "unloved" and seen as a cheap, plastic coda at the end of the era of manual film cameras. Yet the P30 embodies all that you need for "slow photography" with film; the viewfinder is big and bright, the focus aid works very well for all lenses of F4 or faster, the exposure mete...

Pentax K-r Review
I bought my K-r for my wife to use on our adventures back in 2012. Unfortunately, we havenít been traveling since 2015 and the K-r just sat around until this year when I discovered its potential with m42 Takumar lenses. The K-r may just be the perfect body to make a permanent m42 screwmount DSLR. My...

Pentax ME Super Review
The PentaxME Super certainly was a great camera 40 years ago. Now? Not so much. Itís a beautiful camera. With the Pentax-M 50mm F1.7 lens itís pleasantly small and light. The viewfinder is huge and bright, great for manual focusing! I wonder why Pentax doesnít put such viewfinders in new DSLRs. Its...
