Best T/C for Sigma 100-300mm f4?

Not tried the Pentax HD converter on my 100-300 yet, but, if you can find one, the original Sigma EX 1.4x works pretty well on it. OTOH, don't get the Ex 2.0x version unless you can put up with fa...

Two from the park this morning

The first one's a classic - subject, composition, DoF, lighting all spot-on.

Pentax LX mirror foam

I have never had an LX either but I'd be amazed if it needs to have anything removed to replace the mirror bumper. Replacing this foam is the easiest camera upkeep job there is - just remove the o...

Fuji Pro 400H film discontinued in all formats

I have a few rolls left in 120. No idea why, but it always looked good when I used it in my old folders whereas for 35mm I prefer the Kodak offerings.

It's a fine portrait Gary, love the muted colours and the composition with her pushed to the left slightly giving that area of negative space. It's not a criticism but I would have preferred either...

What's your latest acquisition?

The pencil eraser trick works with the *ist series battery contacts too. They can look really shiny but they actually have a layer of insulating muck on them. I've brought two back to life that way.
