This arrived today. Think it may be brand new


oh VERY nice!
I had a P30 (actually, had a few as 2 turned up in a box of pentax film cameras from ebay). It's a nice little camera and very good to use. it felt a bit "modern" for me, but not too automated.
Pentax k100d, k30d 18-55, Tamron 70-300, Tamron 500 mirror, pentax 10-17, 50 1:4, a manual 28, some extension tubes and a bagful of memory cards. That's all i need... and a load of film cameras too... that's it, honest.

Cheers Laurence

Are you on Flickr etc so I can see your results from the new cameras?

From Analogue Wonderland I've just had delivered Fomapan 100 and 400 and also some Harman Pan 100 and 400 to have a play with. Want to see if they're close to Delta 100 in terms of contrast as these are much cheaper to buy

Needed to scratch an itch.

Bought a Sony A9, autofocus and tracking speed is all I imagined (and more).

Feels like cheating a bit.

Know what you mean, I just bought 2 lenses for the Fuji

Just arrived, a Lastolite EzyBounce modifier which just straps onto your flash for bounced light but can modify and shape the light as well. Now owned by Manfrotto this is a bargain right now with a 67% discount to 9.99 with free postage in the UK from Manfrotto UK. I think they are busy rebranding the Lastolite range so they are getting rid of old stock, grab one whilst you can!

Thanks for this. I used to use bounced flash a lot with my old K200D but stopped when I moved to the K-3. Lately I've been thinking I should go back to it as it can produce great results and this looks like a helpful product. Sent to my folks' place of course so who knows when I'll get it, thanks Brexit.

Jonathan, I have had a couple of deliveries from The Netherlands recently, one was delayed for a day getting clearance whilst the other came straight away.

First purchase in several months - a Pentax SMC A 50mm f1.2 - I feel I didn't get the most out of my last copy, so thought it only right to have another go.

Steve - I'm a reformed character

Having an overcrowded Pentax storage area, less inspiration and a bit less income means parting with the majority of my collection is the right thing to do. Older things don't sell so well on the forum anymore (generally) but I do like to give the option on here before selling on elsewhere for more money

But you're right - I did buy a D FA*70-200/2.8 as well - but it didn't offer enough "extra" for me over the D FA70-210/4.0 so it was offered on here for a few weeks then elsewhere for more.

A couple of books on photography and some postcards from the NPG book sale.
SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.
