Pentax K1000 | This Old Camera #06

Earlier this year, we covered the Pentax K-1 because it’s uses a Sony sensor. That camera’s heritage includes the Pentax K1000. A camera that’s the longest running SLR in history and in this Old Camera #06, Azriel Knight shares its illustrious history.

If this camera was a calculator, it’d be an abacus.

HT Shutterbug. The other amazing thing about the K1000, it’s still getting rave reviews on Amazon and recommended as a learning tool.

My daily shooter is Sony A1 with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
