The tiny, elegant Pentax Espio 90MC (aka IQZoom 90MC) is a quailty 35mm point-and-shoot camera from circa 2000. It features the same sliding lens cover design as the famed Espio Mini. Here's how it was described in a Pentax catalog:

At your command, the IQZoom 90MC extends a powerful 38mm-90mm zoom lens from its super compact body. Passive five-point autofocus and multi-pattern metering work behind the scenes as you shoot to ensure picture-perfect results. And a protective front cover shields the lens for trouble-free traveling. With all this and plenty of other sophisticated features, you can't help but grow fond of the stylish little IQZoom 90MC.

This camera requires a CR2 lithium battery for power (optional). A Pentax case is included.

Condition notes
The camera was tested with a battery and film installed and all major functions are working well (we didn't develop the film), and the camera is in good cosmetic condition (see photos). We verified the camera's true film plane focus accuracy with an autocollimator and its exposure accuracy with a calibrated light source. 

Example photos
Here are some photos that other people have taken with this model of camera:



  • Zoom in to catch the subject's subtle expressions, or zoom out to capture the entire scene with the amazing 38mm-90mm power zoom lens. 
  • Zoom Macro allows closeups at any focal length and from as near as 25 inches from the subject. 
  • The multi-pattern metering measures lighting conditions with incredible accuracy to ensure proper exposure, even under difficult lighting conditions. 
  • Automatic fill-in flash helps achieve proper exposure of subjects even in backlit situations. 
  • The five-point passive autofocus system produces images that are eyelash sharp, even in shots that usually "fool" the camera like those taken through window glass or with an off center subject. 
  • Several flash functions include flash-on mode to capture shadowed images against bright backgrounds, flash-off for situations where flashes are prohibited, bulb-sync (with or without flash) for nighttime illumination, and slow shutter-sync to expose subjects against evening light. 
  • For spectacular landscapes or group pictures, just switch to the panorama mode at any time and any frame. 
  • The easy-to-read LCD instruction panel displays all the vital information to ensure a smooth and simple ride. 
  • To turn the power off and on, just slide the protective front cover with automatic lens retraction. 
  • Get into the picture with the self-timer ten second shutter release delay. 
  • Just when you thought life couldn't get any easier, an optional remote control allows you to operate the camera at a distance. This little gadget has a three second shutter release delay. 
  • Fail-safe film loading. 
  • Record those moments forever with the optional date imprinting available on the IQZoom 90MC Date model.
