The Pentax ME was a 1976-introduced, aperture priority automatic camera with an electronic focal plane shutter from 8 s to 1/1000 s, synchronized at 1/100 s. The shutter curtains are metal and have a vertical movement. There is no shutter dial, and the camera can’t be used in manual mode, except for B and 1/100 exposures. The Pentax-invented digital light meter was of the standard TTL open aperture center weighted type. It is activated by a slight pressure on the release button. The Pentax ME has a 0.97× viewfinder, covering 92% of the field. The shutter speed chosen by the camera is displayed in the finder. There is a hot shoe on the top of the prism and a self-timer. The selector around the release button has four positions: L, Auto, 100X and B.
All you need is a roll of 35mm film and 2x LR44 batteries then you’ll be set to go.
