LBA keeps on going....

Well.... it should be PABA (pentax accessory buying addiction)

last week it was a 50mm f1.7 auto chinon... before that it was 2 extra batteries, 2 UV filters to stop sand scratching the lens's..

this week its a 70-150 f3.8 vivitar Close Focusing Automatic Fixed Mount lens.. (hopefully, if i can get a reply from the seller!)

next week .... who knows!

oh i also bought an 8gb card, and a af240z flash...

do the canikon guys get afflicted with such a terrible disease?

off to find a bigger bag now .... and tripod... and..... and....

Thanks

Steve

Good luck with the tripod. Did battle with mine today - it won. Ambico is the brand, don't know the model. I even tried hanging a gallon can of paint from it, and it still wiggled. Recommend you try before you buy. Mount your camera with a long lens, jack up to full height, whack the lens hood, and see how long it takes things to settle down. My DS has a two second delay on mirror lock up, and that wasn't long enough to get rid of the shake. I think it's off to Radio Shack tomorrow to get parts for a remote release so I can trip the shutter without disturbing the camera.

If you're not in a hurry you can buy a cable release more cheaply than you can build it:

Ah, accessories... at the nearest camera shop (near Ft Huachuca) last week, I bought a shiny chrome Helical Focusing Tube made by Miranda, supposedly M42. I thought it would be a nice compact replacement for a bellows for field macro work. But somehow it didn't fit. Hmmm... a little googling, and I find that Miranda used a unique screwmount, size M44! So back to the shop, full cash refund, and I'm still trying to accessorize. The moral: screw before being screwed.
