Vivitar V4000

Jump to: navigation, search

The Vivitar V4000 is a Pentax K mount 35mm SLR marketed by Vivitar. As with most Vivitar-branded cameras, Cosina was the actual manufacturer, using parts from their CT1 Super and related models.

The V4000 has shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/2000 of a second, with a B setting and flash sync at 1/125 of a second. ISO range is from 25-3200. The viewfinder has a horizontal split-image spot and a microprism ring, with the LED readout for the light meter located on the left side. Two color variants of the V4000 exist, an all-black model and a two-tone black and silver model. The camera requires two LR44 or SR44 batteries.

In common with a number of other Cosina-built SLRs, the shutter release of the V4000 is locked (and no meter readout can be seen) until the film-advance lever is pulled outwards from the body.

The V4000s shares all these specifications, but also offers a self-timer.
