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.

A couple of willing female assistants would nice, Jay!

It will be a two-man team on this project, although I will be doing the bulk of the filming and photography.

Yes, I'll be flying into Canada, but doing most of the filming in USA (two seperate trips covering a total of about 5-months, so it is a major project).

It's taken months of preparation and buying needed expensive equipment etc., so our main funds have been stretched to the limit.
Just before I'm about to fly out to North America, I've learnt that the engine on our main boat has blown, so we are in desparate need of another engine (50-100HP). Anybody out there got, or know of someone who can loan us an engine (or boat/engine combo) for the expedition in Upstate NY area?

Tony, This may be a time where an assistant is called for. Free assistants can be secured from the right film, video, or photo schools: who can assist just for the expereince, and its documentation. Are you coming again to the States? --Jau

The new Fuji Velvia 100 is an improvement on the Velvia 100F, but still doesn't match the Velvia 50. I will be using both Velvia 50 and the new Velvia 100 for my next expedition starting next month.
The probelm is, that I'll be making a movie as well, so I've got to carry a complete Pro DV system and lenses, plus sound equipment, two tripods and heads, as well as a complete system of still camera gear including two SLR bodies and a complete range of lenses from wide to exteme telephoto....and even two underwater cameras. Oh my aching back!

Hi all. Haven't had much to say lately. Glad Spring is finally here in the Land of Lincoln. Has anybody been able to get any of the new Velvia? I just ran a roll of the old 100F through one of my LXs and it still sucks. I'm grabbing whatever V50 I can find and freezing it. I like the extra speed, but the 100 just does not cut it. I sure hope the "new " 100 makes me a believer. I met an older guy in the woods today ( that sounds good doesn't it?)who was haulin' a big ass wooden tripod with a bag of Mamiya medium format stuff over his shoulder.He had some fun comments about digital that I can't repeat. He said his blood was green when asked about Kodak film. He burns 100F in his Mamiya amd is not real happy with it either, but he didn't know Fuji was releasing a new version. I think I made his day.

While earlier I said I was going to test battery conditions, I see that you folks beat me to it. I still would like to compare battery curves based on battery type, but for now, my LX bodies need other help (neither will meter correctly). Looks like I must see if one of my ME Supers still work. Thanks for the advice on purchasing service manuals. I purchased two from www.manuals2go.com: one for the LX and one for the ME Super. The scans aren't the best (no gray scale and lots of noise from dirty paper) but it looks like the originals aren't exactly high resolution, either. The .pdf scans look to be useable. Thanks again for the advice.

The battery drain in the LX whilst on draws 4.0 milliamp, and then rises to 14.mA during shutter travel on electronically controlled speeds (drain on the mechanical 'B' setting with button pressed drains at 6.4mA). The LX LEDs flicker when voltage falls below 2.5V, although meter readings can begin to lower slightly once battery power falls below 2.8V. Meter readings can indicate a full stop extra once voltage drops between 2.8V to 2.5V, when compared to the full 3.0V power...so it is wise to change batteries regularly, and not just 'once a year'.

Ian, I have a slightly scratched Grip B with a strap lug 'Araldited' into it LX 2000 style but on the front not the side - seemed like a good idea at the time and probably isn't so bad an idea now but I don't use it. Let me know if you want it. AB

G31 is the secret Japanese sealant formula only shared with official governments. It requires a clearance for access and a license to use for attack. Since 9-11, it has been in high demand by home security fronts for closing all western boarders. --Jay

Hi Guys. I'm in desperate need of a Grip-B for my second body. I love the LX straight, but only with small primes. Once I get a zoom on-board, I really appreciate the Grip-B.
Of interest to Dan and others. I've discovered that the LX's power points are as follows. Nominal voltage (calibration) : 2.8v. LED flickering low battery warning : 2.6v. Power failure mirror lock: 2.1v. I always thought the nominal voltage was 3.0v, I was wrong For those of you with the Service Manual, what is "G-31"? A lubricant, or sealing agent? Does anyone know? -Ian.
