Pentax P30T 35mm Camera Body Description


The Pentax P30T is an economical manual focus 35mm film SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera that uses Pentax K-Mount interchangeable lenses.  The P30T was introduced in 1990 as a replacement for the Pentax P3n and P30n.  The P30T inherits all the capabilities and functionality of the previous model but it has a Titanium colored exterior and the split image portion of the focusing screen is angled diagonally.  Unlike the prior models which employ a horizontal split image, the diagonal split image orientation of the P30T screen makes it possible to easily focus on both horizontal and vertical lines while holding the camera in either horizontal or vertical position.
