[SOLD] PENTAX H1a Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale

Asking Price
$35 USD

Item Description
Honeywell PENTAX H1a
Classic 60's 35mm with interchangable universal M42 screw mount lens. This is the one that for marketing reasons they left the 1000 shutterspeed off but if you turn the shutter speed dial to the unmarked space you get 1/1000sec. About a bazillion lenses available from hundreds of manufacturers around the world. I'm selling a 35mm that fits it right now. Lots of information on the internet if you Google it.
I find that as I get older I don't need as many cameras in my collection as I once had. My wife complains that I nearly always use my Fs anyway, "Why do you need all these old cameras sitting around everywhere!". Have a look at this one, maybe your wife/husband/partner is a little more tolerant.
The camera works fine. The shutter speeds all work well and are half/double the adjacent ones, even the slow ones!

"Batteries!, We don't need no stinkin' batteries"
Used leather case included. I can throw away the vintage case if you want to save on postage.
My McKeown's says it was worth $75-$100 retail in '89.
I take PayPal, or perhaps we can work something else out.

International buyers will have to wait for postage rates while I package the camera and go to the post office for the exact rate to your exact location.

If you need more info just ask. I can send additional pix if you tell me your interests

Everything you see! The most valuable thing from a collectors point of view may be the cherry hood in original pouch.

The Heiland version of the H1a was my first new camera in 1962. Mine had a 50mm/2.2 lens

I'll buy this one just as a reminder of that camera. I'm just down I35 in Georgetown, TX but too far to pick it up. Let me know the final price to 78633 and your paypal address.


Should've sent this as a PM I did.
