Hello there

Guys it's just a standard bot - report and move on. Whenever I see a strange post I just check the profile. The username and website link smacks of 'advertising bot' to me.

FS: Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm f2.8

It looks so much like the Biometar 80mm that I sold. I don't think it's as well known as this one but it still has some funky bokeh.

Pentax Q

I found that a carefully placed hand can help. But for outdoor use, the viewfinder is one of the weaker aspects of the Q. Of course, there was a time when every photographer had a big black clot...

Venice in Monochrome - Part 1

These are really enjoyable photos - thank you LB. Several times the GRIII has played around with my thoughts, but it is a lot of money for a compact camera that probably wouldn't get much use (exc...

LX Motor Drive batteries

It is easier to get tagged ones as each race pack of 6 needs to be soldered together. The last time I did these the firm who supplied made them up into race packs for me ready soldered and shrink w...

Water droplets on a leaf

I have a liking for waterdrop-on-plant photos though they can be very hard to do - small item to focus on, potentially moving, and blown highlights due to any light source appearing in the drop(s).

What the Dickens is this?

No 3 is more like what it actually looked like. The others are either enhanced in PP or taken with high EV compensation to show the whole of of the thing.
