Yeah, OK..Cool.
Actually there were two questions posted.

It's not even a Pentax - It's a Minolta, an it looks like an X-11 or XD11 or something along those lines.

I don't think there was a Minolta X-11 -
the XD-11 hadn't yet moved over to the newer Minolta logo with that stylized "O" (somewhat like the AT&T logo)

here's an attempt at an enlargement/enhancement of a crop of that SLR:

It's not possible to read the model number over the right hand -
but it kind of looks like this SLR -

I am posting a resized image for the convenience of readers -
and not hotlinking/leeching his image.

FWIW - that film SLR was probably in the Minolta X-700/570/370 (or 500/300) series.
and probably more information than anyone wants to know:
Minolta X-700 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PS - I'd like to know more details of the model.... (as in female )

It's more likely an X-370, though it wouldn't surprise me if it was an X-700

Minolta X-370, most likely... It looks like it has the thumbwheel style shutter speed dial, which is unique to that model. the 570 & 700 had the conventional knob.

Later, they came out with a X-370n, which had a plastic body, and was kind of crappily built, but took good photos.

XD11? How dare you? That was a refined, classy model with an electronically controlled vertical travel metal bladed shutter.

The X-370 was an el cheapo model with a horizontal cloth shutter.
I want to thank you for the valuable answer to my first question. Sorry I can't list all.

And To

I appreciate you guys' attempt to sort out the second question.

Thanks all.
