Smurfin' U.S.A.!

I couldn't resist any longer...



In person, the blue is more Turquoise than Carolina, so I should be safe taking it to Duke Gardens.

I checked the firmware last night, but already forgot if it was 1.00 or 1.01 (Edit: It was fw1.00). In my quick tests, focus seemed snappier than I remember 1.00 being, so maybe it is 1.01. Other than that, just another happy little Brick!


(Or Smurfin' Safari, Smurfer Girl, Your Smurfin' Heart - whatever your favorite Smurfin' song is...)

Yes, that's the one I've got my eye on. Although the white Holga 15B flash would look nice, too - for my less crazy days.

Edit: Although, the black-with-white-print Holga 12S matches the black "hat" on top of the Smurf.

Guess I got what I deserve
Kept you waiting there, too long my love
All that time, without a word
Didn't know you'd think, that I'd forget, or I'd regret

The special love I have for you
My baby blue

Done carefully, a complete collection of K-01s actually costs less than ONE Silver Edition K-3, and gets four more K-mounts into circulation! Just sayin'...

I actually have two AF200s (one charges but won't fire). On a K-01, I prefer the smaller but less capable AF160. I could get one of those for ten bucks and paint the shell white, but that sounds like work. Besides, the goofy Holga 12S is in a different world - if we were talking restaurants, it would be Chuck E. Cheese.

Thanks! Just when I was about to give in to the collector's urge and special-order a white DA35 to share between my original Stormtrooper (K-m) and Pandatrooper, someone split up their white K-x kit on evilBay. The paint is a little more blue-white than the K-01 or K-m, but I'm hoping it will mellow with age.

What we "need" (this is that other kind of need, the one we don't need at all) for the Smurfs and Pandatroopers is a white-edged DA 40 XS, similar to the silver one for the Limited Edition K-5.
