My new toy came in the mail today
Posted By: xs400, 01-22-2008, 07:38 PM

The new toy I got is a new Pentax AF-360FGZ flash. Sorry, I know you were probably hoping my new toy was a K20D. Anyway, here's a pic of the flash on my K100D with the DA 16-45. Below that is the first picture I got using the flash. I know it's not a very good picture, but when you just get home after work, it's raining outside, and you get something like this in the mail, it's easy to take a bunch of crappy pictures in the living room. After the excitement wears off, I'll try to take some better shots.

Tran,

I like the way you think. Earlier today I ordered a wireless trigger on ebay from Gadget Infinity. Off-camera shooting is less than a week away!!

I can't play the piano. So I'll trade the piano for Liv Tyler.

congrats on the new toy... agreed, it bites when you get new gear and it's crappy outside...
always have to take a couple silly pics inside with new stuff - I think I fired off 10-15 pictures of my kitchen sink when I got the K110D last year. LOL

Man, the piano is impressive - in fact, I think it's the key to the whole image - I know, I know that was awful. I just hoped it would strike a chord with someone.

Okay, so it's puns you want!!

I did't expect to get any sharp comments like that, you might want to change your tune.
