Gave my 'Gift' Asahi Pentax SF-7 body a trip fitted with another 'Gift' ( both Via Pentax User Site ! ) lens SMC Pentax-F Zoom 35-70mm , f3.5-4.5. I used up a short length of the outdated Fuji Superia X-TRA 400, rated 200 ASA I had in Yashica. I had to use 'manual exposure' as SF-7 has NO means to set ASA manually. Very annoying ! I used a Weston Master V Flash was Metz 45 CL-3 with SCA Pentax 372 Module -- slightly Under-Exposed

Love your work Peter. You’ve an incredible grasp of “limited” tech.

Ps that ice cream is horrifying.

Proper photo's taken with proper kit.

Great stuff.

The ice cream is straight out of District 9.

Best regards

Very good clarity, Peter, almost a 3D look.

Cheers.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Love that film look that digital files don't get.
