Pentax 17 Camera has been manufactured to fit perfectly in half-size format. It also comes with a high-quality multi-layer coating called HD (High Definition) to improve the sharpness and clarity of half-size images.

The angle of view and focal length of Pentax 17 were chosen based on the lens used in RICOH Auto Half (introduced in 1962). Hence, It provides causal, easy, and perfect daily photographing.

Pentax 17 has a special system for focusing on subjects. It has six different focus zones that cover various distances, from close-ups to large distances. These zones are 0.25m, 0.5m, 1.2m, 1.7m, 3m, ∞. To focus, you only need to turn a ring on the camera to the zone that matches how far your subject is.

For example, if you want to take a close-up picture of something about 25 centimeters away, you will turn the ring to a 0.25m zone.
