Product Description

Though the Pentax ZX-M SLR camera shares its compact dimensions and easy-to-use features with the Pentax ZX series, this model lets you switch from a completely automatic mode to a completely manual mode. In addition to the user-friendly features, this camera incorporates a wide variety of functions, including a multimode exposure system, an advanced light-metering system, and a 1/2000-second high-speed shutter. The Pentax ZX-M uses the Pentax A-series manual focus lenses, the FA- and F-series autofocus lenses, as well as a wide range of optional accessories to satisfy the photographer’s creative needs. With its four exposure modes: Aperture-Priority AE, Shutter-Priority AE, Metered Manual, and Programmed AE, you can give this camera as much or as little control over your pictures as you want. You can use the Programmed AE for those shots that you want exposed with no guesswork on your part, while Aperture-Priority AE and the Shutter-Priority AE give you partial control over the shot. Or, for complete control, switch to the manual mode and capture the shot exactly the way you want it. The Pentax ZX-M lets you check the depth-of-field for a given aperture with just the push of a button. This feature ensures that your picture will have the visual effect that you want, before you take the shot. You can even use this feature when the camera is set in automatic mode. The external LCD viewfinder display features the Pentax Natural-Bright-Matte focusing screen, which gives you a sharp, clear image and lets you confirm all of your settings with just a glance.
