On 2022-02-10, I acquired a Pentax K200D digital single-lens reflex camera (10.2 megapixels, made in 2008). The camera is the “last” model using a CCD sensor (as compared to CMOS), which yields a different color rendering. It uses standard AA cells and SD cards, so no proprietary accessories are needed. For its Pentax K mount, there are many lenses available.
It cost me 45€(!), found via eBay Kleinanzeigen.
Shutter count was 15473. The camera is in very good condition, only flaw seems to be that the flash doesn’t stay down unless you manually pinch its notch a bit, no big deal.
I updated the firmware to 1.01, which works better with modern SD cards I heard.
