Pentax K-1, Pentax A50mm f1.7.



When I checked the shutter count on my new K-1, it shows this image as the very first shutter actuation.

Odd, as I thought that all cameras go through a few shutter actuations as part of the quality check before packaging them for shipping tot he merchants.

Why no tripods on the grass?
Is "makes loads of holes" the correct answer?

Aeration.

I do it to my lawn a couple times a year, spring and fall.

Helps the sod breathe, water to get to the roots but still drain well, and discourages weeds and pests.

Gorgeous indeed.

The cigarette would be a deal breaker though.

Bad habit.

The factory probably has a way to reset the actuation count.

It is possible.
