Pentax Z-1 / PZ-1 Review
I got one of these at a thrift shop, along with a ZX-7, for $10 each. This was definitely the better buy of the two. The Z-1 has a bunch of really interesting features that I had not been expecting, given I shoot film primarily on an MX and ME Super and Digital on a modern DSLR. The Z-1 behaves muc...

Pentax MZ-7 / ZX-7 Review
Bought recently at a thrift shop for $10. It's fine? Not particularly attractive nor does it feel nice in the hand. a real step down from even the consumer grade k mount MF bodies. I may revise this review as I get more time in with it, but I don't suspect I'll be going back to it regularly. Not a ...

Pentax K-m/K2000 Review
Bought used but love it. Struggles in low light. CCD sensor renders beautiful colours. Uses AA batteries. Old camera but I still use it in 2020 with SMC F 28-80mm f3.5-4.5 and DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lenses.

Pentax K-50 Review
This is my landscape camera because it is weather sealed. It has high ISO capability. It is not great for video but it works, best used for still pictures. You can use rechargeable battery that comes with it or there is an option to use 4 AA batteries with a insert. Overall great camera.

Pentax K-01 Review
This camera grows on you. It works great with the DA 40mm f2.8 lens and it also works great with manual lenses like the Helios 44-2 58mm f2. Too bad Pentax discontinued this camera. Autofocus hunts in low light, and the camera lacks weather sealing but other than that it is a pleasure to use.

Pentax K-70 Review
In my defence, I have rated this camera based on the fact that it is Pentax' entry level DSLR and I got it for the price of a GoPro! My first DSLR was a Pentax K-r and considering I paid more for that 10 years ago than I just did for my K-70 there is no comparison. Just as back then, the K-r was ...

Pentax *ist DS Review
I bought this camera online from Korea for only 30 usd + 15 usd for shipping. I have also the D and DS2. What I like the most: -As this camera has not SR there is no need for Focus Correction what make it perfect for using vintage manual focus lenses. -Brigh t Viewfinder (very good for manual ...
