Note: the LCD screen that displays modes and the camera's frame counter is dim and intermittent. Otherwise the camera works perfectly. Since the price is heavily discounted, it would be an ideal camera for someone plans to use it as a pure, fully automatic point-and-shoot (in other words, it's less ideal for people who like experimenting with advanced features).
The Zoom 70-X is one of the finest cameras in Pentax's late-80's 'Zoom' series of the advanced 35mm point-and-shoots. It features a very sharp 35-70mm f3.5-6.7 zoom lens (7 elements in 6 groups) and the camera provides a LCD readout of the selected focal length for repeatability.
The camera requires two CR123 lithium batteries for power (optional).
Condition notes The camera's functions were tested with batteries and a roll of film (the film was not developed). As mentioned earlier, the LCD screen is dim and intermittent (this doesn't affect photos). We verified the camera's film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
