Item Description
Pentax pZ-1p autofocus film body - some consider the finest, most ergonomic Pentax film camera ever.

Many of these cameras seem to sell with various apologies, such as the pop-up flash doesn't work right, or the battery door is cracked. NONE of these applies to this camera. It is in 100% excellent working condition.

Photos coming, but there is nothing you won't like about this camera. Ships with body cap and includes a battery. Take it out of the box, load it with film and go to work.

The whole point of the design of this camera is that when making pictures you just keep looking through the viewfinder and adjust f-stop and shutter speed with two dials, while the finder shows you the information you need. You very seldom have to remove the eye from the finder for the purpose of adjusting something when shooting.

he Z-1p has something called "hyper-manual" and "hyper program". In both modes you adjust shutter speed with one dial and f-stops with another. The finder shows the selected values in "hyper manual" also an over/under exposure scale in 1/3 stops. A small button picks a shutter/f-stop combination that satisfies the meter reading, this is really nice when something unexpected happens.

Bump for a killer camera. I picked one up a little over a week ago from KEH and it is worth every penny. When shooting with fast film in daylight, the 1/8000th shutter really helps out, especially with the faster lenses.

No doubt it is an awesome camera. I have two myself. If someone doesn't jump on this one soon, I may make it my third.
