Pentax K-1 II Review
I can't believe there are so few reviews of the Mark 2. The improvements over the K-1 are not revolutionary but there are significant, incremental improvements. I bought the Mark 2 as soon as it came out but sold that copy a few months ago when I thought I needed smaller although I was otherwise ver...

Pentax MZ-30 / ZX-30 Review
I wanted to shoot multiple exposures, and since I already had Pentax lenses, looked for a Pentax film SLR that has autofocus and multi-exposure capability. I was lucky to find an MZ-30 with battery grip at a local used camera store for $35 CAD. The camera looks pretty clean with only one small scra...

Pentax KP Review
I bought this camera three months ago and I love it. Really compact camera but at the same time solid and WR. At the beginning I didn't appreciate the ergonimic, although because I came from a K30, but using it you will start to know how to handle it. It looks like a mirrorless but it is a reflex an...

Pentax MV Review
I can't help feeling there's a degree of snobbery directed towards the lesser mortals in the Pentax range, particularly the MV-1 and MV. It doesn't pretend to be a professional's main kit camera, so shouldn't be measured by the same yardstick. Wha t it does do, however, (assuming you've managed to...

Pentax P3N / P30N Review
Whenever I encounter this model i get depressed. Because this was one of the cameras I considered when I wanted to buy a new camera back in 1989. I am Iranian and I lost my Zenit camera in the time I was a refugee in India and Pakistan. After two years I came to Norway and camera was one of of my fi...

Zenit Automat Review
First, a disclaimer! The Automat I own, while in excellent cosmetic condition, is not capable of taking a photograph due to failure of some aspect of the camera's electronics. My impressions are based on other than actual use taking pictures. I got my Automat as part of a "parts only" purchase w...

Ricoh XR-2s Review
I have been shooting with the XR-2s for about a decade. During that time, I have grown fond of its positive attributes and tolerant of its shortcoming and have become ever appreciative of the simple truth that it always works as expected. Its controls, for the most part, are purposeful and crisp a...
