Pentax Super Program Weird...

Recently, in replacing my beloved Pentax MX, I also happened upon a Pentax Super Program. Some might disagree, but I would consider the Super Program to be the last classic camera Pentax ever made. It’s not the last manual focus body they ever made, nor even the last manual advance. But it’s the last with a classic look, a classic heft, and relatively few/simple settings. It’s not a ‘pro’ body by many definitions – indeed, at the time it was released, a fully electronic shutter with no mechanical fallback was a dangerous proposition. But it does have four exposure modes, a solid meter, decent finder readout, and features that creatives yearn for, like DOF preview.

In the age of ever-advancing digital technology, there’s something appealing about the retro feel of a reliable film camera. Whether you’re using it for an artistic photoshoot, honing your photography skills, or just prefer film to digital, Batteries Plus Bulbs has the battery you need to get the most out of your Pentax Super Program and Program Plus film camera.
