    Received my Asahi Pentax S1a today !!

    It's in great condition, except for a small gouge on top of the camera from the slip on flash shoe. Ran a roll of Kodak gold 200 through it tonight, and besides user error on a few shots, everything seems fine. Tried shutter speeds from 1/60 to 1/1000 ( 1/1000 isn't marked, but it's there :lol...

    My father has a Canon T1i he wants to sell, and I tried using PhotoME to see the actual shutter count on it, and no go. ( it works on my 2 Pentax dslrs ) I tried both RAW, and JPEG photos, and still no shutter count info. Does anyone here know of a program that will show that info on a Canon?

    St. Louis Supercross

    Went to the Supercross races Saturday night, and made the mistake of taking two manual focus lenses, Super Takumar 28mm f3.5, and a SMC Takumar 200mm f4. Although my keeper rate was rediculously low, I did manage a few decent shots... A shot with the 28mm from our seats.... Panning...

    Leica shooters

    My father has a Leica R3, and it is in need of repair. The meter is messed up. It will jump all over the place when pointed at a light source. Also, when set on the Auto setting ( aperture priority I believe ) even at F2 in a well lit room, the shutter stays open for 10 seconds or so. I was...

    My "new" lens...

    Won an auction on eBay for a Super Takumar 55mm f1.8 M42 lens. With shipping, cost was $25.50. So far, it looks to be a steal !! Here are some shots I took with it the day it arrived ( yesterday ). Not too bad for a 40 year old lens :thumbup: Only processing done was cropping, and resizing.

    Kalimar light meter

    My father has an old Kalimar Model 80 light meter, and it works as far as I can tell, the needle moves when you press the button, heh, I was just wondering if there is a sight where I might find a PDF of the manual for it? I have never used a handheld light meter, and would love to play...
