Congrats!!!!!

Ben, You don't care for secrets, the way you openly show your setup is why you are so important for this forum. I wish people like you that show to the world how Pentax still alive and well could be more worthy of gratitude from Pentax USA.

Chauvinisme part 2

Actually Ben,

I am the Canadian French guy shooting with a K10D !!!

I knew you must had a whole lot more stuff (and experience) that I do.

So I am being a chauvinist.
Since (unless I am utterly wrong) you are originally from Canada, in a french country and a pentaxian....

Sorry for the misunderstanding.....

Did you have to pay many bribes for that magazine to publish pictures taken with a Pentax?

Félicitations, Ben. On pousse pour toi (et avec toi).

Just for the sake of it:
you wrote you had 3 K10 and 3 K20.
Why do you keep the K10? I guess, you could get 6 K20Ds, money is not the issue.
Do you use the K10 with some lenses/in some situations and the K20 with others?
Could you elaborate?
Thanks.

10.2 mega pixels is a lot of pixels for a magazine and I sometimes feel that the K10D is perfect for some of those applications. We are all Pixel Spoiled. Imagine what over kill 10.2 mega pixels are for a A4 format?

Amazing work Ben, visiting recently the exposition "David LaChapelle" at the Musée de La Monnaie highlighted me again the quality of your work.

Ben, thank you for the link! Well done mon ami!

Wow, such excellent work (some I've seen in past posts), yet seeing it all within the structure of the magazine is truly a wonderful experience... The lighting, angles and mood of those images are inspiring. I didn't have a chance (yet) to really read through everything. It's a nice chance to brush up on my French though...

Curious: any thoughts on how long it's been since a Pentax system accounted for the majority of images in a fashion magazine?

Regards,
Marc
