Pentax Winder ME II
Takes standard 135 film
24×36 mm negative size.
Operating + Sounds
Huge size and good brightness.
Left side shows the text Over - then under this all the shutter speeds from 1/1000 - 8s then the text Under.
Small red led blinks on which speed will be used.
Vertical metal blade.
Very good and solid.
Look and feel:
It's a very small but looks great and have a nice feel.
One of the smallest full frame SLRs I have seen.
But Pentax still manage to squees a great and huge viewfinder.
It's solid and have a nice feel.
Not a huge fan of the lack of setting options and you only have, L (Lock), Auto, 100X and B (Bulb)
Do also have a exposure comp - or +.
Don't have any mirror lock and the mirror don't get up first when you use the self-timer.
This a great camera for those that looking for a simple auto shutter camera.
Build quality and feel
Few settings and no manual shutter
No mirror lock
