    K1000 survey

    Just to see how many of us have actually owned this model. Got to love the simplicity. Reminds me of the old V'dub's.

    I own one and it is one of my favorite 35mm. It or a Rangefinder are my first 35mm choices for most things.

    I took up photography about three years ago. About two years ago, I bought a pentax k1000 with a 50mm and a 28 mm lens off ebay for just over 80 dollars.
    It is an ideal camera to learn from. It is economic, robust and it's exposure meter system is a terrific educational tool. The lens are fine. I use it a lot. Mainly, because I do not worry about it being stolen. I have other more expensive cameras which I probably treat with too much respect. This has at times inhibited my photo taking.
    I would recommend the k1000 whole heartily to anyone taking up photography or parachuting into the wilderness - If you want. mel.

    This has been my main camera for over 20 years now (sorry, RFF folks).

    It has very few shortcomings, actually, and is extremely reliable.

    The RF has become my choice for most low-light or available light work, but the K1000 is what I grab most of the time for most shooting.

    I own two of them, and I use them as back-ups. I prefer the Pentax KX for most of the work, because it has the lazy man's DOF preview.
    I really like Pentax lenses, sharp, good 'out-of-focus' look, and handles contrast very nicely. I don't see any reason to get anything more sophisticated. It does what it's supposed to do, open shutter, let light onto film, close shutter. And it does it VERY reliably. I've only ever had them jamb up twice. Once the mirror stayed up when it was -35*F (fricken cold), and once because I have managed to twist a cable release on too tightly and a little screw holding the shutter release in place came off... Both times external factors. I would recommend this camera to anyone.

    I also drive and own an old VW. I at one point owned three k1000s. Two worked. Now I have one. It would get more use, I suppose, except lately I've found its metering system to be too dang high-tech.
