I listed this camera previously for $75.00 + shipping but it didn't sell. I'm trying again for $65.00 + shipping. I would also consider trading it for a Lumicon UHC 1 1/4" filter.

This is a Pentax K1000 in good working condition. The body is clean and everything works well. It does have a dent in the body right above the Pentax logo. (see photograph) The dent does not affect the camera’s performance in any way. The dent was there when I purchased the camera and I don’t know how it came to be.

I use K1000s for astrophotography and for regular photography. They are very simple and very tough. Lenses are available virtually everywhere. The K1000 is a completely manual camera. It has shutter speeds that range from “bulb” to 1/1000 second. The shutter is mechanical and does not need a battery to operate. It also readily accepts a shutter cable/lock for keeping the shutter open for long exposures.

I have shot several rolls of film in this camera and can assure you that it works well. Film loads, unloads and advances smoothly; shutter speed selector works normally and the light meter functions accurately. I compared the meter readings from this K1000 to readings from my other K1000 and the readings from the 2 cameras were virtually identical. I have also used the camera with a flash unit and can assure you that that works well also. (flash unit not included in sale)

The camera comes with a body cap and strap. Please email me with any questions you may have.

Price: $65.00 + actual shipping

I will accept money orders or Paypal.

Thanks for your interest,

Gene Slape
