The Pentax K1000 is an all mechanical manual 35mm film SLR (Single Lens Reflex) SLR. The K1000 has earned a reputation as a solid reliable camera with only fully manual functions. The no frills design means the user must figure out what they are doing (if they don't already know). It's a tool perfect for learning because it requires deliberate thought about setting framing, focus, and exposure. When a photographer learns how to use a fully manual camera like the K1000 they'll have a fundamental foundation of understanding how any camera works.
Consequently the K1000 remained in production for decades and is one of the most popular cameras of all time.
