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.

Can anybody help me out with some technical features about the Pentax LX?

I am preparing for a mountaineering expedition to Broad Peak in the Karakoram and I intend to take star trail pictures at very low night temperatures.

I would generally like to know whether anybody has experience with this and whether the Pentax LX would be a recommended camera for this purpose.

Specifically the specification of the LX says that the "mirror locks if batteries fail" - does that mean if I expose mechanically (on B setting with cable release) and within a 4h exposure the batteries fail (why do I need the LX's batteries at all for this if it works mechanically?) then the shutter does not close again?

Has anyone any camera body recommendation for me for this purpose?

Thanks a lot for your help, Tobias Habig

Graeme: No need. Since during the exposure, the main reflex mirror will flip upward in order to allow an exposure process, si, the viewfinder will be blinded during the process.

I have and LX which I would like to use for some long exposure night scenes.
Could someone please tell me whether it is necessary to close over the view finder to prevent light getting in during an exposure, or does this not matter with the LX netering system?

Thanks for any assistance.

Graeme

PENTAX LX: I am looking for a source of PARTS for this camera. In particular, I need the silver metal pin that engages the film cannister and which rotates when the film rewind crank is turned.
