General Pentax MZ-50 information

The MZ-50 (sold as the ZX-50 in the USA) is an autofocus 35mm SLR introduced by Pentax in 1997

The camera has several exposure modes. Settings are displayed in an LCD display next to the shutter release button, and selected using a mode dial on the left hand side of the top plate, and a lever-switch (in the collar of the the release button) to navigate the menu in the display. The major modes are:
 'Picture' mode: Fully programmed exposure, with sub-modes for general use ('Green'), biased for portraits (moderate depth of field), landscape, close-up (maximum depth of field) and action (fast shutter)
 TV: Shutter-priority AE
 AV: Aperture-priority AE
 M: Manual exposure

Pentax KAF2 and KAF lenses are recommended for the camera. KA-mount lenses will allow autofocus with an AF coupler. K-mount lenses will fit, but the camera will not stop down the diaphragm; the maximum aperture will always be used

The shutter is a vertical-travel focal plane shutter, which gives speeds from 1/2000 second to 30 seconds (steplessly variable when in the aperture AE or programmed modes), plus 'B' in manual exposure

There is a built-in folding flash (Guide Number 11 in metres at ISO 100, but controlled automatically with several synchronisation modes). There is also a hot shoe, which couples with some dedicated Pentax flashes

There is a built-in film winder, which gives approximately two frames per second in consecutive mode, and automatic film rewind. The film can be rewound mid-roll

The camera requires two CR2 3V lithium batteries

Camera House Price: £40.00

Looking after your camera

Use a Camera Bag

A camera bag does more than just protect the camera against scratches and dust: It keeps it safe from rain because many are waterproof on the outside.

Be Very Careful Around the LCD Screen and Camera Lens

Use only special equipment to clean your camera’s LCD screen and camera lens. Buy a special cleaning kit that includes liquid solutions, microfiber cloths and brushes that have been specially designed to clean your camera lens.

Never Leave Your Batteries in Your Camera for Too Long
Many camera batteries are now alkaline or lithium formats. If you keep your camera with the batteries inside of it in a moist area, then the batteries can get corrosive. So if you’re thinking about just putting your camera on the shelf for several months, do yourself a favor and remove them.

Turn Your Camera Off Prior to Doing Anything

Before you do anything to your camera, always keep in mind that it should be turned off first. No matter what it is—swapping lenses, changing memory cards or disconnecting or attaching cables—your camera should be turned off.

Cold and Wet Weather Can Wreak Havoc on Your Camera Body
Take your camera out only in a waterproof bag. If the weather’s unusually cold, just wrap your camera in a plastic bag that has silica desiccant packets for the reduction of moisture. It’s also a smart idea to have a soft towel with you to wipe off any moisture, just in case it should get on your camera.

Good Memory Card Care Is Good Camera Care

Only transport your memory cards inside of a protective caseMake sure the memory cards stay dust-free at all times. When removing memory cards, make sure you do so indoors or in non-dusty situations.
Make sure that you keep memory cards only in cool places. Never keep them in places where they may heat up, like dashboards or glove compartments.
Never place your memory cards close to magnetic sources. Examples of magnetic sources are things such as audio speakers, TV monitors and actual magnets.

Use a Filter to Protect Your Camera Lens

The lens of your camera is naturally fragile. As such, it’s susceptible to scratches, cracks, dents…you name it. A UV filter will not only will you give your lens a fighting chance, but you’ll also enhance the quality of your pictures.

Condensation Can Be Controlled

Condensation normally happens when you move your camera between different temperatures.
Allow your camera a chance to naturally get used to the hotter environment. Don’t place it inside a closed plastic bag when transporting it between different temperatures! Just let the camera sit in the humid temperature for a while, until condensation disappears.
If this still doesn’t get rid of all of it, you can utilize a soft cloth to wipe away any remaining moisture and marks left behind from the condensation.
