The KR-10 is an advanced 35mm film camera with aperture-priority semi-automatic shooting mode, and full manual mode. It features an excellent shutter, allowing speeds up to 1/1000th of a second. The camera has a fully informative viewfinder that shows light meter reading and shutter speed, with a big, vivid focusing patch and split-image focusing aid. This makes manual focusing extremely easy, fast, and fun, a process which is also aided by the sheer brightness and size of the rather large viewfinder.
It will do nearly everything the average film photographer could ask of it, and it looks quite handsome at the same time. The camera is in very nice condition, with no damage or marring. The viewfinder, film compartment, mirror box, shutter, and battery compartment are all very clean and in great condition. All dials, switches and knobs click and actuate exactly as they should. The light meter works perfectly.
The included lens is a 28mm focal length lens with a. fast aperture of F/2.8. These specs make it an ideal lens for wide angle and general purpose photography, including landscape, snapshots, action, family photos, architectural shooting, and street photography. The aperture ring clicks as it should, and the focus ring spins fluidly. The mount is pristine, and the filter threads are unmarred. The aperture blades are snappy and oil free, and the glass elements are free of any blemishes, balsam separation, cleaning marks, and fungus.
Additionally of note is the fact that this camera uses the popular K-mount lens system, meaning that many lenses from various makers can be natively mounted to the machine. These include offerings from Pentax, who made some of the best lenses of the day.
To put it simply, this is a great camera at an affordable price.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
