[SOLD] Pentax *ist D body + D-BG1 grip + extras

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax *ist D body + D-BG1 grip + extras

Asking Price
was AU $280 or US $235 ono

Item Description
This is a small, robust, and reliable dSLR camera that makes an excellent backup body or cheap first dSLR with advanced features for the aspiring enthusiast.

The *ist D is Pentax's first generation dSLR with a 6.1Mp Sony sensor, ISO 200-3200 (with good noise control), multiple useful controls on the body (as opposed to the *ist DL or DS models) and 5 image RAW buffer.

Have a look at the *ist D reviews on this forum's camera reviews section for more information.

I bought it from a fellow forum member as a backup body, but now have my K10D taking that place, so no longer need it.
I am its third owner, and it's in near excellent condition. What leaves it short of excellent is a couple of cosmetic defects that do not affect camera function:

1. v. small chips from plastic directly beside front e-dial of grip and above front e-dial of body
2. thin but visible scratch over top LCD cover
3. missing rubber cover over remote control jack on L side

All camera modes work as expected, and the sensor is in excellent shape (I have had no problems with dead pixels).
Number of actuations to date - probably around 50,000 (about 800 in my hands).

It includes the camera body, dedicated Pentax grip, shoulder strap, 2 CF cards (one 4GB Kingston and one 1GB IBM microdrive), two CF card readers, a set of 8 rechargeable AA batteries at 2500mAh, manual (in poor condition, but intact and very readable), CD software and in original packaging. Basically, you'll have everything you need to start shooting straight away!



















Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Price reduced once more.
Well worth it as this was a $1,700 camera (body only) when it was first released!

Looks like a fantastic deal on a great camera.

My *ist DS resides in a box in the closet.
I'd love to sell it but it's almost painful to ask so little for something that once cost so much.
Shocking really how quickly they depreciate in value.

Good luck on the sale.

Hi

Just wondering if you're still selling this, or if it's already gone.

Thanks

This is a great camera in many ways. I have one as well and even though I don't use it too much now, I just can't part with it. TTL flash is an added plus as well. Laid out just like the K10D/K20D in a body the size of the K-7 With the extras, this is a great deal.
