Is there a film bodies database?

Hi,

Is there a Pentax SLR bodies database similar to the one for lenses?

Thanks,

k-mount page is so comprehensive, is there a need?
or did you want to see reviews on bodies? in that case there are quite a few things that can be found in a search.

Just curious about reviews and comparisons between bodies and to learn more about the many different models. I only know a handful of them.

I found the K mount page. Thanks!
While most I do now is DSLR, I still love my K1000 and I was wondering about added features in other manual focus bodies like mirror lockup, self timer, DOF preview, multiple exposure etc.
I know the LX was (is) the king.
I like both extremes: DSLR and full manual


Thanks,

If you want a manual K mount body with more features than a K1000 then the MX, KX and KM are all worth a look. The charts on Bojidar's K-mount page are a good way of comparing features.

You might start by reading the manuals. PENTAX MANUALS

The Dimitrov website is the definitive source for this information.

Ole has started a thread to collect camera images for a camera review database similar to the lens review database.

Request for photos of your cameras

Here is a collection of Links submitted by Forum Members in the External Links database.

Hi: Fearview. You replied on May 23rd. As of May 24th there is a camera bodies database just like the lens database - brand new created by Ole.

Here's the link to my reply in this thread which has a link to the Ole thread and the new database. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/608011-post11.html
