    Pentax Thinking about Pentax

    I could probably have popped in the Nikon 50mm f1.8 E which isn't too much thicker but it would have thrown off the symmetry :)

    Audibly gasped at how pretty this little E-P3 is - going to try it without the side-grip for a while. Shipped over from Japan faster than some local deliveries. EM550023 by Walter Kernow, on Flickr

    Film new to film

    Most 90's era cameras will auto-load - you really just need to make sure there is enough film for the sprockets to grip onto the take-up spool. When you close the back it'll just pull through and set the counter to '1'. If for some reason there isn't enough to catch on, then the film-counter...

    Film new to film

    If I was new to film I'd set everything to auto and let the camera take care of things. Aperture priority mode would be the next thing to fiddle with. I burned through a chunk of film on manual/aperture-priority before reading various forums and realising my camera battery choices were affecting...

    Cool new photography technology

    I just want a firmware update to my older Oly & Panasonic m43 cameras to improve AF performance and nail eye-detect on my cat. Is that too much to ask?

    Film What FILM (!) photography related item did you buy this week?

    My first Canon. I hear the EOS33 is reasonably well regarded as a high-end amateur body (maybe in a similar league to Nikons F100). This one looks pristine. Need to get some batteries. Also picked my first Canon lens - the 40mm pancake. Navigating the EF lens-mount compatibility seems more...

    Pentax Thinking about Pentax

    My only thing to watch with some of those early 20-tween bodies is the sticky-shutter thing. Apparently Pentax used some dodgy solenoids that affected a range of entry level bodies - K-01 (the apsc mirrorless one - mine has this issue), the K-30 and K-50 (maybe K-70?) - I'm not sure when it...

    Micro 4/3 HDMI out for older m43 (-> USB capture card)

    Sadly no. My newest Oly is an E-M1 and it doesn't do hdmi out for live-view. I think most newer Olys will be OK but I wanted to use something cheap - GH3's seem to be the low-end for this capability (& they're dirt cheap now - at least in NZ). I guess the other catch or pre-req was having...

    Music The Amazing Emporium of Wondrous Tunes (aka: What are you listening to?)

    Saw a Quietus review of their album 'Puppies forever' last week, saw a couple of clips and bought all 3 albums - their ACAB single is genius & super poppy! Made an old man smile. And I've been impressed by the hipster-metal pop fury of The Armed too.

    Using the SLR Magic 8mm f4 with my GH3 for my Webex & Teams calls - very handy focal length (also gives me an appreciation for the FOV on webcams compared to camera-lenses too).

    Picked up a 105mm f2.8 Micro-Nikkor - think its one of the early ones. Really shocked by its compact size; my 55mm MN seems almost as large. Feels very weighty tho'. Picture perspective makes it seem large in comparison to the body and 24-85mm in the background. Took almost 4 weeks to get here...
