Description:

Second hand Pentax S1a body with 55mm f/2 lens 35mm camera for sale


Used The Pentax S1a body is a sold mechanical film SLR camera with a metal chassis. Very robust. Basically a K1000 with screw lens mount and slightly slower top speed of 1/500sec. The camera has manual exposure modes with shutter speeds from 1sec to 1/500sec. As its one of the very first 35mm film SLRs, certainly from Pentax there's no electronics or exposure system/batteries. You can buy a dedicated add on meter or use a handheld meter. There wasnt a flash shoe originally but this can be added with an optional cold shoe accessory. There's a sync socket for X and B type flash, and a tripod mount. The shutter button is threaded to accept a cable release for long exposures with the B-setting and there's a T setting. Good solid camera that's idea for student or traditionalist.

Condition:

slight knock on pentaprism front, scruffy baseplate, grubby top plate. Most will clean up. Shutter is sticking and mirror intermittently stays up. Apparently common issue with these old cameras. Selling for spares or repair.
