Pentax MZ-30 / ZX-30 Review
For the money, you canít beat this camera. This was never intended to be a premium product, but Pentax really got the feature balance spot on with this camera. Itís almost ridiculously lightweight, and has the feel of a plastic toy camera. However, it does appear to be pretty robust, and matches som...

Pentax K1000 Review
I love this camera because it's as lovely as what came before it in Pentax design and manufacturing history. It's gorgeous, but it is ridiculously expensive to buy. Superb solid Spotmatic SP1000-style camera that is fully mechanical - except for the metering system - just as the cameras that prec...

Pentax Spotmatic IIa Review
I bought my Spotmatic IIa with an S-M-C Takumar 50/1.4 and 135/3.5 basically just to get the lenses. The camera was mis-listed as a Spotmatic F. When I got the camera it was in much better condition than expected and cleaned-up nicely. Even the meter works with a Wein Cell 400 zinc-air battery. The ...

Pentax 645N Review
I love it! Can do double exposure, unlike my 6x7, but I do miss the MLU (only reason to get the NII, but not sure if the hefty price is worth it just for the MLU since I only use MF lenses and really also don't benefit from any AF improvements).

Ricoh GR II Review
I just got this camera a month ago but it's already proved to be fantastic! I started shooting with a point and shoot camera when I was young, then shot the K-30 for four years before now the K-3. So far I have really enjoye returning back to the point-and-shoot experience. I got the GRII because o...

Pentax K-50 Review
This is an excellent camera. Itís lightweight, sturdy and weather sealed (although the screen scratches easily). Autofocus is fine, menus are easy to navigate, but the best thing is that you get a fully featured camera. Lots of drive modes, exposure bracketing, user-defined modes, image stabilisatio...

Pentax K-3 Review
Having shot the K-3 for a year now I want to share my experience using it. I got the K-3 used from a forum member when I felt I had run up against the limitations of my K-30, which I had been shooting for four years. Those limitations included resolution (the K-30 had 16mp with anti-aliasing filter)...
