The Pentax MZ-50 ( also known as ZX-50) is an autofocus 35mm SLR that has several exposure modes. Settings are displayed on an LCD display next to the shutter release button, and selected using a mode dial on the left hand side of the top plate, and a lever-switch (in the collar of the release button) to navigate the menu in the display.
The major modes are:
'Picture' mode: Fully programmed exposure, with sub-modes for general use ('Green'), biased for portraits (moderate depth of field), landscape, close-up (maximum depth of field) and action (fast shutter)
TV: Shutter-priority AE
AV: Aperture-priority AE
M: Manual exposure
Pentax KAF2 and KAF lenses are recommended for the camera. KA-mount lenses will allow autofocus with an AF coupler. K-mount lenses will fit, but the camera will not stop down the diaphragm; the maximum aperture will always be used. This camera is supplied with a Phenix 50mm f1.7 lens.
The shutter is a vertical-travel focal plane shutter, which gives speeds from 1/2000 second to 30 seconds (steplessly variable when in the aperture, AE or programmed modes), plus 'B' in manual exposure.
There is a built-in folding flash (Guide Number 11 in metres at ISO 100, but controlled automatically with several synchronisation modes). There is also a hot shoe, which couples with some dedicated Pentax flashes.
Finally, the MZ-50 includes built-in film winder, which gives approximately two frames per second in consecutive mode, and automatic film rewind. The film can be rewound mid-roll.
The camera uses two CR2 3V lithium batteries for power.
