Asahi Pentax Spotmatic SP1000 35mm SLR Camera with Asahi Pentax Super Takumar 55mm f/2 Lens

All cameras come with 6 months warranty. Please note that cosmetically this camera is in great condition, but the distance on the lens is stuck. The lens does focus, however, the scale does not move when the lens is focused. This does not affect the operation of the camera.

In this kit: 
1) Asahi Pentax SP1000 35mm SLR Camera Body
2) Asahi Pentax Super-Takumar 55mm f/2 Standard Lens.


Asahi Pentax's Spotmatic SP1000 is the perfect camera for someone looking for a reliable, well-built film camera. It boasts a full-metal construction with virtually no internal electronics to worry about. The metal built also gives it an amazing feel in hand without being too heavy. It also has one of the most satisfying winding mechanisms. It is a very minimalistic camera with a classic and timeless look while making it very easy to use.

Focusing is done manually. The viewfinder is bright and big. Additionally, the lenses have stop down metering, giving you an easy preview of your depth of field.

Due to the age of the Spotmatics their light meters tend to be burnt out. Fortunately this is not too much of an issue as these cameras function fine without batteries. This mechanical reliability is one of the main advantages of the Pentax Spotmatic. To meter a scene before taking a picture just use an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone (we recommend myLightmeter), or alternatively the foolproof 'Sunny-16' rule.
