Pentax MX 35mm Film Camera

with 50mm F2 Lens

Meet the Pentax MX—a true hidden gem that's ready to make you the star of the vintage photography show! If you're on the lookout for a camera that's small, sleek, and packs a punch of features without the fuss, the Pentax MX is your ticket to photographic awesomeness.

Unveiled in 1976, the Pentax MX is not just a camera; it's a testament to the art of simplicity and the joy of full control. Picture this: it's the smallest fully manual metered SLR camera ever made, and yes, it's even smaller than the Olympus OM1. Talk about compact coolness!

We lovingly restore, test, and clean all of our camera models to ensure that despite its age, your vintage Pentax MX works as well as it would have if purchased it back in 1976. This means that you’ll be able to capture your soulmate’s smile, your puppy dog’s eyes, or the sunset of your last day at college – straight out of the box.

Designed to steal the hearts of professional photographers, the Pentax MX puts you in the driver's seat. Forget about automatic; this camera is all about the manual magic. From focusing to exposure and even flash—every detail is yours to command.

But here's the fun part—despite its professional prowess, the Pentax MX is surprisingly simple. It's not just a piece of machinery; it's a beautiful dance partner that glides with you through the world of film photography. Performance and functionality? Outstanding. Complexity? Not on its watch.

By the way, protect your camera for 1-2 years with our protection plan. We cover all boo boos at no cost to you.

When it comes to the Pentax MX 35mm film camera, you can’t go wrong. It’s easy to learn the fundamentals of shooting film with this camera. All you have to do is put it on a strap and walk out the door! (PS we sell straps too!)

How We Grade Our Cameras

We restore, test, and clean all of our cameras to ensure that despite its age, your Cute Camera works as well as it would have if purchased it in 1976. This means that you’ll be able to capture your soulmate’s smile, your puppy dog’s eyes, or the sunset of your last day at college – straight out of the box. 

VERY GOOD:

A "very good" body will have minimal signs of wear and tear. Examples include slight impurities like  worn leather or metal, signs of age on the bottom plate, and dull marks. 

GOOD:

A “good” body will also look nice but have some additional potential cosmetic wear such as spots with discoloration,  worn down metal or small scratches somewhere on the body.

AVERAGE:

An “average” body will be a more severe case of cosmetic wear like more extreme discoloration or worn down metal, exterior or interior black
specs, deeper scratches, or lines in the eye prism.

The item was in excellent condition and considering it's a vintage camera that's more than 40 years old I don't have any complaints.

Cosmetically it's nearly perfect however the viewfinder's coatings had some damage around the edges that makes using it with the sun to my back a little more difficult because of reflections in my peripheral vision.

An absolute gem of a camera

Ordered my Pentax MX from Cute Camera Co. the packaging it came in was a cute surprise so fun to open. This camera will be a treasure to hold for years to come. Honestly surprised by how clean and good condition it is. Came with a lens/lens cap, that’s basically brand new. Shot a whole roll of film thru it and everything is very sound. Highly recommend Cute Camera Co.
