I was getting close to the maximum number of images for the free account. When I noticed the Pro accounts were on sale, I decided to go for it. So I'm now a Pro Flickr member.

Same here. Well, I was far from the limit but decided to take advantage of the sale.

remember you won't pay that price later. I have several thousand images in Flickr but the price just keeps going up. I went to Pro in 2019 and have paid: 50, 48, 66 then this year 72. There are no offers after the initial one to reel you in.

Ouch, well I'll have to think before paying again. Thing is, I like it to share my photos here, with you guys.

I was told zebra's shouldn't live in solitude...
so I acquired some company for my flektogon 35 mm zebra lens, a 55 mm zebra.
Twin lenses, twin cameras.

Now go out and shoot some stereo images!

Nothing photography related (I'm under a self-imposed gear buying moratorium) but we've placed deposits for a pair of His & Hers Volvo XC40 Recharge SUV's. On their own they're unlikely to save the planet from a fiery death but at least it's doing something.

You can carry your gear in the back while you help save the planet!

Nice!

Out of curiosity, Why a K100D?

3 reasons:
- ccd sensor
- SDM to screwdrive conversion
- white solenoid

I finally upgraded with a K1. I had not planned it, but I found a low mileage second hand K1 at a good price.
After using KP for some time I'm actually surprised how small K1 is. The strange thing is with the beefier grip on K1 I don't notice much difference in weight between it and KP.

And as both K1 and KP have similar low light performance I do not need to prioritize one over the other for low light performance, which I kind of like.
So it is more available lenses that will determine which camera I will use (plus IQ requirements).

Sunpak 24DX Flashgun

I only bought this (from Ebay) to complete my GAS motivated collection of Sunpak DX Series units. I now have all seven (and duplicates of a couple). They were made up to about the year 2005 and were superior to the contemporay Pentax units IMHO, and usable straight on modern Pentax cameras with the Pentax foot module. It was relatively cheap at 16, and came with the generic, single contact, STD-1D module which interested me.

I did not think I would use it because of its low power and lack of a tilt and swivel head, which I regard as essential for normal use. However, I now think I might use it for lighting a flash brolly for tabletop work, and for my slide duplicator.

The STD-1D is the only DX series module to have a sync cable socket. I guess the reasoning was that it was for older cameras that had no dedication features, and some of those do not even have any hot shoe contacts, so the ability to fit a sync cable was provided. But the cable socket will be useful for wiring up a flashgun on a light stand.

Oddly, the generic STD-1D modules tend to fetch higher prices on Ebay than the dedicated modules. Usually they cost more on their own than this one did attached to a flashgun.
