Hello Everyone, I need to replace my Pentax MV. I know its a dinosaur but I really liked that Heavy Metal LOL. So which would be the best choice? The camera body will be purchased thru e-bay. Any opinions greatly welcomed. THANKS :confused:

Hi and thank you for the reply. The MV has two batterys. The thing that gets me is that while In Auto mode the light meter shows on the left side of the view finder. I figure that the battery would still be OK. I'LL try the batterys, also if it still has the same results as before should I have the shutter cleaned and oiled. I hope that this the right tech phrase and if so could you give a ballpark figure on cost? The ZX-M isn't really priority, I like metal not plastic.

Hi everyone, I'm new here. My Pentax's are a MV and ZX-M.The trouble is that the shutter sticks on the MV when set on Auto.To release the shutter I have to change setting to 1/100 or B. My ZX-M shot well until recently.Was shooting a roll of 400 24 exposure and after the 12th shot the ZX-M Auto rewind kicked in. Ever since then when I load film and turn to ON the camera eats the film. Will not advance to first exposure. I hope that this makes sense I am a newbie. Really love these cameras and hope some kind person will address these issues. Going crazy because the price of film and once loaded and turned to ON the film is GONE. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time!!:confused:

I pushed the tab under the camera load door and kmow IT EATS FILM.Will not advance to frame 1. I hope that someone here can help us both. :confused:

Hello to everyone. Recently found this forum and I'm hoping to get some answers and info. I really love these Pentax's, their old and maybe i can learn more about them. please be aware that I am a new to the 35mm SLR camera. The 1980 MV was a gift from a friend who recently passed. The ZX-M was purchased through a family member. I hope to get to know you all, toten44
