Pentax MG SLR 35mm Film Camera with 35mm-70mm Lens

For those who want the vintage vibe without having to learn full manual commitment.

The Pentax MG SLR is a camera that was produced by Asahi Optical Co from 1981 until 1984. The Pentax MG replaced the Pentax MV and MV1 cameras as an entry level 35mm semi-automatic camera.

The Pentax MG was a manual focus, aperture priority camera, with no manual settings of speeds. The Pentax MG has an electronic focal-plane shutter from 1s to 1/1000, synchronised at 1/100. However, if the batteries fail the camera still operates at 1/100s or B, thus the selector around the release button had three positions: Auto, 100X (1/100, X sync) and B. The exposure meter is center-weighted TTL type with open aperture measuring for Pentax M compatible lenses. The Pentax MG can use any Pentax K-mount and can still be used with current Pentax lenses. There was a self-timer and a hot shoe with an additional contact for dedicated Pentax flash units. The Pentax MG uses 2 SR-44 batteries or equivalent to power it.
