Pentax K1000

Traduction de Luc Moreau
 

The K1000 is a SP 1000 on which the 42 mm thread mount has been replaced by the K bayonet. The exterior was also revamped a little bit.  At the time of its release, this camera was considered to be the low end of the K series.  However, the K1000 was delivered with a SMC standard lens.

The K1000 differs from the KM by the absence of the self-timer, FP sync, depth of field test and the memo cover on the back.


In 1992, the Pentax K1000 was still present at the Photokina, hailed by the press for its timeless quality.
