Pentax Zoom 70-X 35mm camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Note: This camera is excellent condition overall but its integrated lens cap doesn't close. This doesn't affect its performance (the lens is pristine) but we recommend using the included case rather than throwing it loose in a bag to protect the lens.

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). Apart from the lens cap mentioned above, all modes are working correctly. The camera and included case are in excellent aesthetic condition (see photos).
