Pentax MX



Pentax MX


Entering the market in 1976 the MX was in production up until 1985, and was their flagship 35mm SLR for much of that time.  It is fully mechanical and totally manual, only relying on its batteries for the through-the-lens (TTL) exposure metering which is indicated by a series of traffic light coloured LEDs in the viewfinder.  The selected shutter speed and aperture are also indicated in the viewfinder.  Although  solidly built it is not to the standard of the Nikon FM, but it does have the advantage of being smaller and lighter.


This was my first serious camera and was my main workhorse for many years.
