Pentax Spotmatic takes M42 screw-thread lenses
Why not use the real thing? – Still life images – Pentax Spotmatic
This was a really good find being considerably clean and worked straight away with a new battery. All the shutter speeds work correctly, the self timer works and the viewfinder is clear. The photographs above were taken using an out of date (March 2000) Agfacolor HDC 200 35mm film.
The Pentax Spotmatic takes M42 screw-thread lenses and was introduced by Asahi in 1964 – it was the first SLR camera to sell well with a through-the-lens (TTL) exposure metering system. The light meter is activated by pushing a small switch (which is on the left side of the lens housing) upwards. To see more visit this gallery which contains 4 photographs
