This was shot with an E-M10 i and the 14-42 kit lens; it's noticeably less sharp around the edges of the photo. All of this equipment gets used when a) it's not horrible weather, and b) when I'm not buried in work - this has been an extremely busy year for my business. It seems almost every time the weather's really nice my clients need their projects attended to.
Someday soon... :cautious:

This point and shoot camera was first shown on Comdex Fall '97.

The Dimage-Pic was well equipped for an entry level model, with a built-in flash, LCD screen, serial port for computer connection, video out port, automatic white balance, exposure settings, and a self-timer mode.

Waaaay cool images, especially the old Asahi-flex.

It also makes me fondly remember my old Asahi Spotmatic, my main - and one of my first ever - camera, which I shot with (mainly Tri-X...what else?) for quite a few years. Such a simply-but-beautifully designed camera.

Thanks for posting these!

There's still nothing like a Pentax!
Apologies to Olympus users, but there it is...

I'm still waiting for my M39 to M42 adapter rings from China. I was thinking of using melt glue and one of these to adapt the "no-adapter-to-be-found" M37 Asahiflex thread mount Takumar to the modern DSLR and M4/3 cameras. I'm not destroying the lens just to use it on my newer cameras.

As a side note: Takumar lenses was named after the Japanese-American portrait painter, Kajiwara Takuma [梶原啄磨], whose brother, Kajiwara Kumao, founded Asahi Optical.

Haha, full circle I guess Bobby. Not sure I can compete, but I’m motivated to try. Beautiful cameras help.

This shot is awesome, love the glass reflection and the light focus on the camera, fading to black corners.:2thumbs:
Like you said. This is a great place for shared ideas, gaining inspiration, and sharing knowledge.

I got the idea to try this from your last shot of your x100. The front of the 56mm is so big it was perfect for gathering reflection.
