    • • Produced 1976 to 1997, the K1000s extraordinary longevity makes it a historically significantcamera, despite its very ordinary design. Although the K1000 was already obsolete when it wasfirst released, its inexpensive simplicity was a great virtue and earned it an unrivaled popularity asa basic but sturdy workhorse, particularly suited to educating inexperienced photographers. ThePentax K1000 eventually sold over three million units.• Originally produced in Japan…later models made in China. VERY few design changes over the21 years. Some metal parts turned to plastic resulting in less expensive but less sturdy body.
    • Not only was the same cameramade for 20+ years• Just about every k-mount Pentax lens ever made will work on a currentPentax digital body. The same is true of most Nikon DLSRs.

    • ISO: 200-3200Auto ISO is the default setting for the auto and scene shooting modes and will set asensitivity between 200 and 3200 as it deems appropriate. You can also limit the autoISO range to whatever you choose, such as 200 to 800. ISO 200 is the default for the P,Tv, Av and M modes unless you have previously selected an ISO. ISO may also bemanually set at 200, 400, 800, 1600 or 3200.Both Nikon andCanon haveRELEASEDcameras capableof shooting at102,400 ISO.
    • • Cameras have different ISO ranges:Model/Time Frame ISO Max Useful– Film in 1985 25-3200 200– Film in 2004 100-3200 800– Canon A85 (2004) 50-400 200– Pentax *ist (2004) 100-1600 800– Nikon D40 (2006) 200-1600 1600– Pentax K100d (2006) 200-3200 1600– Nikon D3 12/2007 100-25,000 6400– Nikon D3s 12/2009 100-102,400 12,800Camera manufactures will usually include a HIGH ISO that is not really useful except for reallycasual stuff. This means that you can use it…but the results will be pretty noisy.
