SMC Pentax-M 1.7/50mm

Technical Specifications

Brillant, big viewfinder. Compact design. The Pentax ME is a 1976-introduced, aperture priority automatic camera with an electronic focal plane shutter from 8 s to 1/1000 s, synchronized at 1/100 s. The shutter curtains are metal and have a vertical movement. There is no shutter dial, and the camera can not be used in manual mode, except for B and 1/100 exposures. The Pentax-invented digital light meter is of the standard TTL open aperture center weighted type. It is activated by a slight pressure on the release button. The Pentax ME has a 0.97× viewfinder, covering 92% of the field. The finder screen is fixed, with a split image and a microprism ring in the center. The shutter speed chosen by the camera is displayed in the finder, the aperture is not. There is a hot shoe on the top of the prism and a self-timer. The selector around the release button has four positions: L (lock), Auto, 100X (1/100, X sync) and B. The lenses are interchangeable with the K bayonet mount.
