Product Details - An affordable camera for the amateur photographer, it was a fully mechanical, manual camera designed without any program modes. It survived much longer than originally intended and became the archetypal "student's camera." The K1000 was equipped with all features required for manual photography: a TTL metering system, wide-ranging shutter speeds from 1/1000 to 1 s, and the ability to use all the available K-mount lenses made by Pentax and licensees such as Ricoh and Cosina. The K1000 omitted some features found on more advanced models, such as depth-of-field preview, self-timer, and separate meter on/off switch.
Camera and Pentax-A 50mm lens
It is a great camera for a beginning film photography student. The controls are really, really basic. I do recommend reading, or viewing, online manuals for some tips and tricks, but those would probably be learned through the photography class I assume you will be taking.
I have owned this amazing camera for going on over a year and a half and I couldn't be happier. I bought this on a whim as I was looking into starting photography as a new hobby and now I am hooked. This is probably the best beginner SLR camera to start with and what better way to start the basics, with a film camera. Super easy to use and I was able to get a great feel for this after a few short weeks of shooting with it. The image quality is fantastic and in my opinion a better deal to go with this than a point and shoot camera as you actually have to take your time to get the picture right and that in my eyes makes it more worthwhile. I am currently in Germany and every trip I go on whether for a simple Fest or sight seeing at a castle, this camera is at my side along with at least a dozen rolls of film. I haven't even bought any additional lenses, I have just been using the 50mm lens that comes with it and for me it is versatile enough to shoot pics at whatever it is I'm pointing it at. So if you are looking to get into photography, this is a great place to start. The Pentax K1000 has far exceeded my expectations for a 35mm film camera and I will always continue to use this even in conjunction with my Canon Rebel DSLR.
