Love Pentax MX-1

Fresno, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I LOVE my Pentax MX-1 Black version. It is a LOT for the $289 I paid. The price jumped to $330 the next morning. The book is 233 pp. long. I was going somewhere, did NOT have a month to study the book, and a kid at the barber shop knew about cameras, as did his mother sitting next to me. They told me how to view pictures on the back of the camera. Just push ~3 buttons. So off to Stanford reunion, shooting in auto mode. Got 195 pix and got them to show on my computer.

  • Summary: Absolutely fantastic! Sure I wish it was a little lighter but it takes amazing pictures so I wont even complain about that. The styling looks a bit old school which I adore and you can take over 300 pictures without needing to recharge.

  • Excerpt: I have had this camera for a few months now so I thought I would share my experience with you. So, what do I think? On the whole it has been a great buy. Mind you, I certainly did not pay the release price of £450. I set myself a threshhold of £200 maximum, and if the camera came down to this then I would invest. Well, it hit £199 albeit for only 2 weeks in Jessops (it has since reverted back to £220). Was it worth it?

  • Summary: Great advanced but small camera. Perfect camera for field work. You can slip it in a large pocket or messenger bag. Price is reasonable.

Great camera.

  • Summary: In short: super happy. Love this camera. Many people thought I had a 35 mm film camera. Especially when combined with the AST Ever Ready Camera Case Bag. I don't like that the strap hooks are on the front. If they were on the side, the camera would hang more flush. The only other camera I would consider over this would be a Fuji 100. Oh, I also wish the tiltable screen would come fully down for shooting with my arms extended over the arms.

Just Right

GameLover, Amazon
18 September 2014
  • Summary: Picked this up here for about $250 before a recent trip to Hawaii. I have Nikon DSLR with a few fancy lenses, but I didn't want to drag it all over paradise, fearing it getting damaged or lost. Instead, I wanted something small enough to fit into my cargo shorts that handled well and took excellent pictures. And if it got destroyed by sea, sand or a drop into a volcano, no biggie - it wasn't a huge investment like my DSLR.
