Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic
When the Pentax Spotmatic was in-
troduced to the public at the 1960
Photokina, the photographic
world's
fair in Cologne, Germany, it attract-
ed immediate
and keen
attention_
Not available for purchase
at that
time, it was a model of the advanced
features and design that would be in-
corporated into cameras of the future_
Four years of extensive research,
exhaustive experiments and intensive
testing
followed before
it became
available to serious amateur and pro-
fessional photographers
in late 1964.
With its unique behind-the-lens ex-
posure meter of entirely new design,
the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic is
now more than just another camera
_.. it is a new concept in photography_
Hidden within the camera body, its
through-the-lens
meter utilizes two
highly
sensitive
Cadmium
Sulfide
sensors to accurately
measure light
seen by the camera's lens as it is re-
flected from the subject being photo-
graphed.
Therefore,
by measuring
the light as it passes through the lens
and matching the exposure needle as
seen through the viewfinder, you can
be assured of properly exposed pic-
tures under all but the most impos-
sible lighting conditions.
Macro- or
microphotography
pictures with tele-
photo lenses or with filters ... the
Honeywell
Pentax
Spot rnatic will
give you correctly
exposed photo-
2
graphs without the use of external
. meters or the need for cumbersome,
time-consuming
calculations!
The Spotmatic
may also be set
manually
the same as any
other
quality 35mm camera if special light-
ing or selective focus effects are de-
sired. Just leave the exposure meter
switch in its OFF position and select
the f/stop and speed settings for the
required effects.
The traditional
classic design and
simple elegance associated with ear-
lier models of the famous Pentax
have been retained in the Spotmatic
despite the incorporation
of many
highly advanced
features.
Meticu-
lously constructed
by master crafts-
men, the Pentax cameras remain the
standard of excellence and precision
in the world of 35mm single-lens-
reflex cameras.
You will find the Honeywell Pen-
tax Spotmatic
even more versatile
than the famous Pentax H3v. Its new
50mm f/1.4 and 55mm f/1.8 Super-
Takumar
lenses with completely au-
tomatic diaphragm
will satisfy the
demands of even the most critical
professional.
Like the Hla and H3v,
the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic has
a 42mm threaded
lens mount that
accepts any of the superb Takumar
lenses from the ultra-wide-angle
mm Takumar to the super-telephoto
1000mm Takumar.
