Umm, one shows you the picture right away, the other doesn't?

so you ask what are the difference between this : Pentax K1000 - Pentax Manual Focus Film SLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications

and this : Pentax K-30 - Pentax K-mount DSLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications

Are you serious ? or you did a typo and meant K100D ?

In case you meant k100d, the K30 is still a massive upgrade. You're looking at a product that's 6 years newer.

I haven't seen any reviews of how to load the film in the K30. I know how to do it with my K1000 but...

Is there a big difference between the proto-notochord and a human spinal chord...I'm thinking about upgrading.

i was meaning more like the difference in weight and would it still preform as fast as my K1000 and is there an image delay, and how fast would i be able to shoot the next picture instead of waiting for it to save to memory. that kinda thing. and the pentax gear page says its a beginner to intermediate level camera. im inbetween the beginner and intermediate

We still have an identification problem. The K1000 is a film camera. You can find a comparison of the (I'm assuming) K100D and the K-30 in the Cameras menu above.
