This small, fully manual Pentax single lens reflex camera is effectively a slimmed-down Pentax KX. It uses two LR44 batteries for metering only; otherwise the camera is fully mechanical, with shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/1000 seconds (and B). Shutter speed is selected by a dial on top of the camera, and is visible in the viewfinder along with LEDs indicating if the exposure is correct as metered, over or under-exposed. There is also a small tell-tale window that shows the current aperture, so all required information is visible with the eye at the viewfinder.
Don't forget to change the clocks on your camera equipment!
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.
Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.
I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.
