Pentax Espio 928 point-and-shoot 35mm film camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Pentax Epsio 928 (aka Pentax IQZoom 928) is one of the best models in the venerable Espio/IQZoom series of 35mm film cameras. In our opinion, its 28-90mm zoom range is the most versatile and practical for general photography (the 28mm wide end is excellent for street photography and the 90mm telephoto is an ideal focal length for flattering portraits).

It's a very simple camera to use but offers some advanced features like double exposure and bulb sychro shooting.

Options
If you opt for '+ battery' it will be a new CR123A 3 volt lithium battery; if you choose '+ battery & film' you'll also get a 24-exposure roll of Fujicolor 200 film.

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). The camera is in good aesthetic condition (see photos) with only minor wear on the body. The original leatherette case and remote control are included.
