Pentax ME Super with 40-80mm f/2.8-4 SMC Pentax-M Zoom Lens
This camera was a development of (and one of two replacements for) the Pentax ME. Both feature semi-automatic (aperture priority) operation, and are part of the Pentax M series which included the manual Pentax MX and briefly the semi-automatic, automatic-focus Pentax ME F. The ME Super added a manual mode to the feature set of the ME.
This camera body is paired here with a short zoom lens. This camera uses two A76 equivalent batteries. Don't forget to put them in your cart!

The ME Super has an electronic focal plane shutter with metal curtains and a vertical movement. Shutter speeds are selected with up and down buttons rather than the conventional wheel. They run from 4 seconds to 1/2000 of a second, with flash synchronization at 1/125 of a second. The hot shoe features an additional shoe contact for dedicated Pentax flash units, not seen on the preceding ME.
In the event of battery failure, the camera can continue to operate at a mechanical shutter speed of 1/125 of a second.
