Question about Pentax Photography
Just got a Pentax Z50P and as I am new to camera's I just wanted to ask what film does it take and where would be a good place to purchase online. I'm unable to find a manual for it so I thought I'd ask here :-) Cheers

There is a good review on the following link: http://members.tripod.com/ZXM/zxm_test.html Really you do need to get the full manual, it is "only" 56 pages & there is no better guide. You can download the manual from the link below: http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/ZX-M.pdf Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

SOURCE: Pentax zx-50 Shutter Problems?
I really think this is the classic zx - 50 shutter motor problem : small motor on the side of the mirror box is not cocking the shutter . This is very repairable but unfortunately it requires fair amount stripping down of the camera to get to the fault and so you will have to take it in for repairs.

Yes this is fairly common with K 1000 and the Spotmatics : although the shutter is cocked and hence you cannot advance film you cannot release shutter because mirror box is not cocked. Remedy : remove bottom cover and locate mirror box lever which protrudes slightely and is movable up and down and is spring loaded. Move upwards until it licks in position ( moving up against spring tension ). Now release the shutter and camera should let you advance the film .

SOURCE: film won't advance
Pentax ME Super was one of my favorite camera, small and clean shutter release. But it has been about 25 years since it was manufactured. They happen to use rubber break within shutter unit and as any rubbers, it started to deteriorate and melt between the shutter-blades. This prevents the complete cycle of the shutter and jams the winding. You may be able to unjam the winding but eventually you have to overhaul the shutter unit. Overhaul charge is around $100 in US repair market. -James
