Motorcyclist

This is what happens when you get a bunch of crazy motorcyclists together---


And this gentleman is 84 years old and can ride with the best of them---


And this is my ride and I'm only 69---


The K30 with the kit 18-55 lens has proven to be an excellent travel camera, fits just right in my tank bag.

In memoriam

I drowned my K-30 in a hard rain a couple of weeks ago. These are a few pics from the final days of its too-brief life. I may get it repaired at some point, but for now I'm moving on.

The K-30 is as weather resistant as its weakest point - typically that will be the lens. Were you using a WR rated lens? And did you leave it mounted until the camera was completely dry? And weather resistant is not the same thing as water proof.

Going back to my film days when there was no such thing as weather resistant photographic gear, I keep a plastic SLR bonnet stuffed in the bottom of my camera bag. It weighs almost nothing and takes no space away from other gear. I'll take photos in light weather with my K-30 and a WR lens, but I'll play it safe when it starts to get seriously wet (or dirty) and slip on the bonnet. Typically a bonnet won't keep your camera dry in heavy weather, but it substantially reduces the water (or air) pressure on your gear allowing the WR features to do their job.

Well yes, I wouldn't use it in weather without a WR lens, in this instance the WR version of the 55-300, and I know the difference between weather-resistant and waterproof. I thought I had it adequately protected, and I was wrong. I'm not blaming the camera; I do recognize that it didn't walk out the door on its own.

Ricoh Rikenon XR... 28mm 2.8 and K30.
