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.

  • Excerpt: Beautifully made camera. Fun and easy to use. Perfect for beginners or those who want to try stepping out into the world of film. It is very basic, which is why I prefer to shoot my smaller, lighter Super Program, but this is always my go to for a day of fun casual shooting. Great to have around.

  • Excerpt: I bought a very nice copy of this SRL off a French e-bay equivalent, the body is in great shape plus it came along with a SMC M 50/2, which is not a great lens ... but do not worry, I have plenty of other manual lenses to use on it. Looks like this K1000 sat in a shelf or drawer for many years.
  • Pros: All manual ... just like the one that I had in high school
  • Cons: Hefty, all manual - thus not a go to SLR for many reasons

  • Excerpt: I have three of this cameras, and enjoy using them. I got my first one a few years ago in a lot of lens I was biding on, payed what I was willing for two lenses that I was after so I considered the rest extras. It was in really great shape except light meter doesn't work, but decided to try it out since I was into only digital at the time. Only use film in cheap point and shot cameras as a teen.
  • Pros: Simple to use
  • Cons: exposure dial can be tricky to move
