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.

Hi Globetrotter , I`ve seen a couple of your ingenious advices to a LX owners, and I am quite excited about your knowledge... Althought, manu of them are far from truth, like the last one about "fooling" LX TTL system. I have been working with LX for almoust 20 years (as a professional photographer), and I know very well all LX-s weaknes and strengths. And LX-s TTL system is one of the most disturbing weaknes, at least from my point of view. So, for all LX owners, about TTL : You can not work with LX-s TTL, unless you keep shutter dial on AUTO mode. As soon as you remove it from that seting, any dedicated Pentax TTL flash will fire unknown flash output (mostly full output). Also, the ONLY available shutter speed on TTL mode is 1/50 sec.Not even 1/75, but 1/50. Any speed over that, and camera`s TTL will override the flash (NO FLASH). Even if you set the standard computer mode (no TTL) on your AF 280 or AF 400 you can not go under 1/75, when any dedicated PENTAX TTL flash is attached. Unless you do not want to play with wires inside the flash (strongly NOT RECOMENDED). For example, Nikon F3 allowes that slow speed syncronisation. There was one peace of accessory to override that problem, but I was not able to obtain it for 15 years. That`s why I use METZ and Nikon (...) flashes, which allows me to work on speeds like 1/4sec. or 2sec. with a wide selection of F-stop setings (AF 280 has only two computer settings). And NO TTL! So, Globetrotter, please, do not mislead some LX owners which are not experienced enought, and do not waste their time and film! Sincerely, Mico

Jeorge: turn the LX shutter dial to manual indicated reading with, but leave the TTL selection on flash. Full TTL on the LX with AF280T also works quite well, but you can adjust to less TTL power by fooling the flash (turn the ISO dial or X1 -1 indicator higher speed setting). Terry: The AF400T & AF280T flashes are dedicated perfectly to the LX

Could someone tell me how the MX stacks up against the K-1000. I need a camera that can take a ton of abuse far from the repair shop. (Incidentally, how would these match a Nikon F or F2?)

I am having no luck at finding a dedicated flash unit for my LX and am therefore thinking of adapting a more standard flash. Does anybody have a circuit diagram of what goes on inside the camaaera or a detailes description of the flash synchro proceedure. I am also interested in a source for the synchro plug.

Terry

I am finally the owner of a rather new LX. I like it very much as most people on this message board also seem to do. Just one thing that irritates me: As you know you can change screens on it, which seems to be a good option, especially because some new bright screens are available. However, the way you change screens on the LX makes it almost impossible - at least in my experience - to do it without getting dust into the mirror box and eventually between the screen and the glas. Even if I like the idea of changing screens this must be a mistake of construction or am I doing something wrong? Any advice how to change screens "dustfree"?
