    My Twins at the park...

    I know.... I know... more kid photos == bah! I look forward to when the kids are independent enough that I'll have more time to shoot and enjoy. For now, I love snapshots of my 3 boys. The twin younger ones finally get out to the park after a long, cold, terrible terrible winter.

    Quick thoughts on my new P&S: Sony WX300

    I've shot with many systems over the years... Pentax/Asahi/Takumar, 67, 645 , Canon EOS, Leica M (current), and now compliment with the Olympus OMD micro 4/3rds.

    Micro 4/3 pro-shooter at the Olympics

    A bit old news but I couldn't find an existing thread..... please merge if I missed it.

    Sync cord for old Sunpak GX8R ring flash

    So I acquired an old Sunpak GX8r ring flash that has everything but the sync cord. Looking at it, I made the assumption that its a regular-run-of-the-mill PC sync cord... great I have a bunch. It was a wrong assumption. It looks like a normal PC sync connector but it is a variant that is...

    Pentax is Sold

    Looks like their line of bad decisions are catching up. As a fan of Pentax, I have that "Oh well" response but I do wish them the best. Hey, at least it went to another photographic company... I suspect...
