Product Details

Discover the PENTAX 17, a sleek fusion of analog charm and modern convenience. Designed for those captivated by the artistry of vertical photography, this compact 35mm film camera offers a unique perspective with its half-frame format, capturing images that are as distinctive as they are economical.

The PENTAX 17 features a manual film winding mechanism based on those incorporated in PENTAX-brand SLR film cameras. The film advance lever lets the user enjoy the film winding action and a wind-up sound after every shutter release. Its easy-loading system is designed to prevent film-loading errors, especially for first-time film camera users. It also features other mechanisms unique to film cameras, such as manual film rewinding operation using the rewind crank; exposure compensation via the exposure compensation dial; and ISO sensitivity setting via the ISO sensitivity dial.

Featuring a newly developed 25mm F3.5 Fixed-Focal lens (equivalent to a 37mm lens in the 35mm format). it has been redesigned to fit perfectly in the half-size format. It is also treated with HD (High Definition) coating — a highly acclaimed multi-layer coating — to optimize the clarity and sharpness of half-size pictures. The angle of view and focal length were selected to make casual, everyday picture-taking simple and flawless.

The PENTAX 17’s body has a classic design, hinting at the traditional look of film cameras. The top and bottom covers are made of a solid but lightweight magnesium alloy to optimize the camera body’s rigidity. The 40.5mm filter mounting thread allows the user to mount a range of the filters, which are available for purchase on the market. With meticulous attention paid to every single detail, the PENTAX 17 is designed to be a joy to own.

Top Three Features of this Product:

  • Zone-focus system: From close-ups to long distances, the PENTAX 17’s zone-focus system is divided into six focus zones, indicated by marks that signify each zone. All the user has to do to set the camera’s focus is select the mark best suited for the subject distance on the zone focusing ring.
  • Vertical Orientation: Designed to cater to users familiar with smartphone photography, encouraging effortless integration into social media platforms for sharing analog aesthetics.
  • Seven shooting modes: The PENTAX 17 automatically adjusts exposure settings based on the lighting data collected by its metering sensor. In addition to the Full Auto mode in which all exposure settings are selected by the camera, it provides six other shooting modes, including: Slow-speed sync, which is highly useful in twilight photography; and Bulb, which comes in handy for photographing nightscapes and fireworks.
