Pentax Spotmatic IIa

The Spotmatic II was released in 1971, along with the introduction of the S-M-C line of Takumar lenses. The meter and film transport was improved from the original Spotmatic, a hotshoe was now included and the ISO range was increased to 3200. The Spotmatic IIa adds a flash sensor and dedicated coupling for a Honeywell flash. Having the flash sensor in the camera allowed for easy flash photography also with the flash hand held at a distance from the camera. This model was only sold in the US and only under the Honeywell brand name.
