Modern Classic SLRs Series :
Pentax LX - Message Board/Guestbook

Industry wide indications and ceasing film body development by Pentax altogether in early 2003 more than suggest the manual focus Pentax LX will not be having an upgrade (except, perhaps for very rare Limited Edition Models hand assembled by special commission by the new HoyaPentax Corporation). In 2008 Pentax became a division of Hoya Corporation, which had together with Pentax released jointly developed professional grade optics (since 2005); Pentax has shifted its attention to development of auto focus Digital SLRs having build qualities constructed for the long run--now with weather seals--like the LX. You may use this site for common support and sharing of mutual users knowledge or experiences among yourselves. You may also use this message board as a guestbook for the advanced users Pentax SLR cameras from the LX forward, including many such auto focus film cameras, and Pentax digital SLR cameras. We keep the site going too for the WORD SEARCH FEATURE found here as to its magnificent K mount system user archives: as have been shared here for many years. Have an inquiry related to Pentax gear? First try KEYING IN YOUR KEY WORD(S) for a preexisting archived response on your subject of inquiry from this LX site. If your inquiry or sharing is from advanced users K10D, K20D, or K200D SLR needs, proceed on to t NEW PENTAX ADVANCED USERS K10D, K20D SLR site.

This LX site was specifically created for the great Pentax LX SLR camera model(s), and now has incorporated increased opportunity for an expanded interchange with the introductions of the Pentax K10D, K20D, and K200D SLRs to include advanced and professional digital user models. Interchange is encouraged with the intention to continue as a forum for advanced system users of past K-mount film based SLR systems and the mentioned Pentax DSLRs. With decreasing forum traffic here, and enthusiasts moving on with SLR digital imaging products futures, we hope the continued convenience of this site and its past Pentax advanced LX users data archives--provided by the database KEY WORD SEARCH FEATURE found here--can be very useful to you. Most past site user techniques, systems components, and lenses of Pentax advanced applications--as have been past examined by users on this site--are still of use regarding the newest Pentax SLRs. Please don't mail us with other than constructive suggestions or to rectify mistakes found within this site, thank you.

On Film:
Exposure must be precise: one must know how the scene light will render--as needed or prescribed--and know the limits and potentials of film to employ it's best qualities. Digital originations can be more forgiving in such critical lighting of subject or scene. However, where extreme detail is needed overall, or the high standards of book or magazine publication or large reproductions are a requirement digitizing a film original is the least expensive and most portable route of imaging. Days away from power source options too favor film. Plus, excellent film equipment is available at very reasonable prices these days. It seems to be the portrait photographer who is most out of a job by market forces toward digital imaging.

So, we use both media for end-use purposes. The beauty of certain color and panchromatic film will always be unique. --Jay

Actually, there are some of us who still shoot film.

I'm presently rebuilding my LX system piece-by-piece for a job at which it excels: long-term IR triggered nocturnal remote photography. Simple rugged camera that does OTF flash, yet is not power-hungry. Too, the speed of the motordrive can be steplessly dialed up or down to match the recycling time of the flashes. Works with cheap Sunpaks that recycle in 1s with a Quantum Turbo 2x2 and I have spares should I blow them up. Can't think of another camera that will do certain things an LX can, or as well.

It also still excels as my go-to camera for long macro 1:1 shots with my 100mm f/2.8 SMC-A, FB-1/FC-1 twisty low-angle, super long relief system finder, set upon a Nikon PG-2 focusing stage, using MLU and a cable release.

Thanks Jay, but I am not that (which one?)famous soccer player from 70`s! In fact, I was playing basketball during mid-70`s but was not famous at all. I returned recently, and will send you e-mail soon. I thought you had forgotten to send me that Colorado stuff... M.

I don't know if Gizmodo has been pranked, or misinterpreted a press release, but they recently posted an article describing the gold version of the LX.

They made it sound like Pentax'x 60th anniversary and the the gold LX are current events, contemporary with the K10D, also featured in the article.

I am seeking contact information for Mico. Our last communication was about photography of changing Northernmost subArtic iceflows (as melting in the Spring). He mentioned at that time going soon again from Montreal to Serbia. I've been holding a package to mail him for some time on a topic of common Southwestern USA interest, but have no word of Mico's present location or state of being. Anyone have a clue? Is our Mico the famous Serbian 6'2" soccer player of the 1970s? If so, photography came to the forefront after surviving an injury and no longer playing. --Jay

Jay, in answer to your earlier request for information on sales of the LX Ni-cad battery pack (I think for Ivan Eberle)...

Various camera shops around the world sometimes offer used or old inventory LX parts, including the LX battery pack, such as:

Sometimes members of AOHC offer battery packs for sale:

Another great option of course is to keep an eye for LX parts on Ebay.
