Pentax MZ-7/ZX-7 Review
I owned this camera for three years (I was not the original owner) and shot 21 rolls of film on it. It was always a pleasure to shoot with, the dials set up very similar to those on digital cameras, and it accommodated any of the wonderful array of Pentax-mount lens. Having read the reviews, I fully...

Pentax ME Review
The ME was my first SLR. It could not have been a more fortunate find. I bought it from a local pawn shop here in Edmonton for a steal at $50.00 Canadian. The body was near mint with only some minor scuffing on the bottom plate and the bumpers were a little deteriorated. The price included an SMC Pe...

Pentax K-1 Review
I've been using my K-1 pretty constantly since May, primarily for landscape and birding at the moment, stepped up from the K3. All in all it's an excellent camera, a great value for the money. And compared to the big name competition, you can't beat the quality or features for the price. The image q...

Pentax S1a (H1a) Review
Initially I had been on the hunt for its sibling the Pentax SV, the upscale version. For months I scoured ebay for one in the best possible condition. The sellers had no idea about the cameras and I didnít feel confident in what the were selling and most were in poor condition. The other week I came...

Pentax MZ-30/ZX-30 Review
The price is an estimate. I bought this for $16 total, with a kit lens, so I'm just splitting the cost in half. I was looking for an AF companion to my ZX-M, and am pleased so far with this camera. It's lightweight (just under a pound -- not as light as the M, which is like a feather, but very manag...

Pentax K-01 Review
When K-01 first came out, I bought a bumblebee at the price of $399. Used it for many years. Yes the design is unique. But, over time I find that it is actually both functional and attractive, certainly with a taste. Sold the bumblebee after the mode dial was lost. It is a perfect second camera for ...

Pentax Z-1/PZ-1 Review
It is a rather wonderful big brute. So many features that only the MZ-S could exceed. Better made than the SFXn it replaced (I also have). Looks are what you make of it. but performance. No wonder this body lasted as long as it is (with the Z-1p enhancements) is overall it is a solid pro camera...
