The Pentax P3n is an economical manual focus 35mm film SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera that uses Pentax K-Mount interchangeable lenses. The P3N was released in 1988 as a replacement for the original Pentax P3. Though both models are nearly identical looking and have nearly identical specifications, the P3n has one subtle yet important improvement: the addition of Aperture Priority AE capability. Aperture Priority autoexposure allows a photographer to pick a specific working f/stop while the camera sets the appropriate shutter speed automatically. Many photographers find aperture priority the perfect balance of control over depth of field without the hassle of manually adjusting the other exposure variable to match.

Just like it's predecessor, the P3n has a Depth-Of-Field Preview lever, only offers automatic ISO setting via DX film code reading (non-DX coded film defaults to ISO 100), has an LED meter display, and still offers standard manual exposure and Program Auto-Exposure modes. The Program mode requires electrical contacts for lens to body communication; so a KA-Mount version of the K-mount like an SMC-A lens (or newer styles like KAF) is necessary for full lens compatibility. SMC-M lenses lenses can still be used, but only in the Manual and Aperture Priority exposure modes.

The P3n marketed as the Pentax P30n outside North America. In 1990 Pentax introduced a similar P30T with minor cosmetic changes and a diagonal split image focusing screen.
