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.

Sorry, the "camara" in that website address should of course be "camera" so as to read: www.camera-direct.com Yet another case where I wish this Forum had the ability to EDIT our own posts.......!

Bill, have a look at the website www.camara-direct.com They have spare body lug attachments for the LX. This is also a good place to look to find new LX screens (the strap attachments are £10 new). The main bright new screens that he carries in stock are: SG60, SE60 and S69 (similar to SC21)at 330 each new; and If he hasn't got the one you want, either new or secondhand, then just phone him or Email and he'll try to get one.
Another good place to look for LX screens or other equipment is on Ebay.

So, it did not seem anyone was actually able to compare the LX 2000 screens with the MZ M replacement screen. But both are an improvement. Also, in lists of LX screens, the last one they apparently put out for the original LX, when the A series lenses were being made, was the SA 37, an "all microprism screen". It seems compatable in the charts with all lenses unlike some screens. Does this add something over earlier screens? Has anyone used this one? Where can I get one of these? -Tim

News! - The first tests results of the new Fuji Velvia 100F are in...... These first tests show that the new 100F Velvia does indeed have less grain that any other 100 speed slide film. However, there is a distinct difference in sharpness when compared to the classic 50 ISO Velvia, and results were closer to the Fuji Provia 100F. In fact, I was a little disappointed with the first results of the new fast-speed Velvia, and was hoping for a film with exactly (or even improved) qualities to original Velvia but with enhanced speed. The biggest problem so far in test photos is a majenta cast. The new emulsion does show some improvement in RF during long exposures, but it does not really better Sensia in this respect (except for finer grain in the new emulsion). These are early days yet, and we will have to wait until more tests are done on the early samples, but at the moment my hopes have been floored and it may look like I'll need to continue with my much-loved 'classic' slow Velvia..........

Hi, anyone users of the Pentax LX out there can clear a minor issue up for me. The LX has mirror lockup. I've found that advancing the film and then locking the mirror and firing is fine but for the next exposure with the mirror now already locked the shutter becomes a double stroke advance. Which means i end up losing a whole frame of film! Has anyone experienced this? Is this a built in safety by pentax to remind the user to switch back to the normal mirror down mode? I guess i could return the mirror to original position and wind the film again and lock the mirror again each time but that seems a hassle. Is that the way it was designed or is there a problem with the camera? Anyone. Please let me know at thelostcoast@yahoo.com as i don't check this newsgroup that often.

I`ve never compared MZ-M`s screen with 2000 LX`s screens (never had one) but personally,I am impressed with MZ-M`s. Yes,MZ-m`s screen covers the whole frame. Just need more careful aproach while inserting. Mico

Welcome aboard Robert ST. I hope you enjoy our friendly chat and swapping of interesting information about the LX and all that is Pentax. Maybe you also will have some interesting facts or advice to share - especially concerning using the LX in the cold climate of Iceland. I have used the LX a lot during extreme cold winters in Scandanavia (I used to live in Denmark) and sometimes found the remote LX battery cord (that lets you place the buton cells in a warm pocket) usefull for maintaining accurate meter readings and functions - have you tried one?
