The ME-Super is the all-rounder member of the Pentax ‘M’ series of SLRs (which also includes the ME, MX). All three share the same lightweight and ultra-compact chassis, showcasing great build quality and lovely to use controls.
The ME-Super has both automatic (aperture-priority) and manual exposure modes to cope with a wide range of situations.
In aperture priority you can choose the lens aperture (which gives you control of depth-of-field) and the camera automatically sets the correct shutter speed.
The clear LED display lets you know the shutter speed warns you of over / under exposure if needed.
If using manual mode there are two buttons on the top of the camera for you to select shutter speed and again the viewfinder tells you when exposure is correct.
Pentax put some thought into making film loading easy too – when loading film the camera has a special spool with many slots so it is faster more reliable to load film correctly. There is also a little window on the back of the camera with a striped flag that moves when you wind film on to confirm that film is indeed loaded correctly. Simple, yet very useful.
The viewfinder is a joy to use – big, clear and bright.
Pentax also released a separate flash to go with the ME-Super: the AF200S (we generally have these in stock). This offers auto flash exposure and also syncs with the ‘flash ready’ LED in the ME-Super viewfinder which is a nice touch.
Shutter speeds from 1/2000 – 4s
Simple film loading with ‘film loaded’ confirmation window
