Other Pentax M42 Camera Models Review
This review is for the Spotmatic SP. I dunno why it isn't listed with the other M42 camera reviews, but it isn't. It appears to be the same as the SP1000. Shutter speeds 1-1/1000, B. ASA 20-1600. I don't have much experience with this camera. It was the rear lens cap for a lens I wanted (a 50/1.4 ...

Pentax SP1000 Review
I don't have much experience with this camera. It was the rear lens cap for a lens I wanted (a 50/1.4 Super Tak). But once I had it in my hands I began to discover a few things. The first thing I noticed was that its slow speeds are very accurate. Most old mechanical cameras I come across of this vi...

Pentax K-7 Review
It's a lovely camera to work with, even though it's an old model now with so few pixels, such noisy high-ISO results, etc etc. Well, I like landscape work, with the odd airshow thrown in, and when_the_light_ and_conditions_ are_lovely it takes such lovely photographs. Instead of chasing the gear r...

Pentax Spotmatic II Review

Recently decided to make the jump back into photography after seeing the poor overall quality of the pictures from my phone. I bough...

Pentax LX Review
I loved my LX! I purchased it new in the early 1980s and took it everywhere, most notably on many a backpacking trip - including most of the Appalachian Trail. A lot of sweat fell on that body but it never flinched. I still have it, sadly it sits idle.

Pentax K-30 Review
First off, after approximately 40,000 actuations, the aperture control has never faltered. The camera has been completely reliable and a joy to use. I haven't tested the weather sealing to extremes but it's a nice feature for this price. I find the sculpted thumb grip perfectly shaped, working we...
