A Happy Buyer

  • Summary: I wanted a 35mm camera that was an SLR. After looking at what was available I decided on the Pentax K1000. It was all manual, something I value for complete control, and it was extremely simple to use. The built in light meter was an added plus. Another plus was the fact that the battery for the light meter, LR44 or SR44 is readily available unlike the batteries for some older cameras.

  • Summary: The K1000 is a simple to operate film camera. Although most of my photos are taken with digital cameras, I continue to use film cameras because the process is very rewarding and intuitive. Because of its simplicity, this camera is one of the better student cameras and when coupled with quality lenses is capable of outstanding results.

A real manual, no fussy camera for purists!

  • Summary: A very good working condition with accurate shutter speeds and metering. A very clean and almost new Pentax-A lens is equipped with the camera. I also managed to purchase a 28mm wide-angle and 135mm telephoto for the camera; which works fine too. If you're a purist and looks for no fussy camera, this is the one to consider.

Simple, reliable, fun...

  • Summary: I purchased this camera for a photography class (plus I wanted one after using my uncle's Pentax K1000), this camera is awesome. This is an all-manual 35mm SLR film camera that is pretty straight to the point. Between the camera body itself and a lens, there are settings for film speed, shutter speed, and aperture (and maybe zoom depending on the lens being used) - that's it.

Hard to load film and make sure it takes without wasting exposures.

Elina Sayers, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: It is cumbersome and time consuming. I've had so much trouble loading the film correctly and half of the time I waste a roll of film because I'll think it's loaded correctly but when I develop it, its blank. :( SO I have to really wind it on there (and waste exposures) to make sure I actually get some shots.
