Pentax LX Review
The LX was launched in 1980 as a serious attempt by Pentax to break the dominance of Nikon and Canon in the professional market. It is robustly made and weatherproofed, yet significantly smaller than its intended rivals - the Nikon F3 and Canon F-1n. As befitted that conservative market, it was prod...

Pentax K100D Review
I gave this a 10, not because it's in anyway perfect, but because the look the old CCD sensor cameras give is essential to have, and for the price these can now be picked up, they are a total bargain for Pentax shooters. Ok its pretty outdated, the ISO/noise performance is laughable, the shutter ...

Pentax WG-3 / WG-3 GPS Review
I found this one that is in pristine condition in an auction site and Im very pleased with it. Easy to carry with me all the time. Good photos (only JPG, no RAW). Seems to be difficult to find used ones but I do recomend to buy one if you find one.

Pentax K-70 Review
Well, here we go! Until the K-70 I owned an very cheap compact-superzo om with a tiny sensor and adequate image-quality.

Pentax K1000 Review
A strange one. Out of date when introduced (1976) yet made for over 20 years; touted as a "family camera" yet lacking a self-timer; out-sold the superb professional-gr ade manual-only MX even when they were the same price or close*. A bit of history : Pentax introduced the "K" range in 1975 : the ...

Pentax ME Super Review
This was my first SLR, bought new after some research. I knew I wanted auto with manual overide. I found the having to take it down from my eye to check aperture a bit frustrating, and the shutter speed buttons seem a bit fiddly and gimmicky looking back on it (Pentax wanted to look "modern"?). How...

Pentax P30T Review
This seems to be a body that split opinion, and I can see why. The greyness divides everyone, you either love or hate it. and it is a big plasticky compared to the better built P30n, which is part metal build. But it does have one major advantage over the P30n, and that is Av mode. If this was in th...
