OK, I trust you on that specific point. But of course my last messages did make a few others of greater import.

My Pentax 67 II, purchased new in 2002, totally "froze" (blocked) 6 months after I got it, one day before Christmas. I sent it back to the Canadian Importer and it was repaired under warranty. They said it was "one of the electro-magnets" in the shutter mechanism that was defective. It has been going strong since, in any kind of weather.

Hi Richard,
Your film images are much more to my liking in terms of colour and saturation than your digital ones. Personally, I would use them as targets for the post processing of the digital raw files, to avoid ending up with oversaturated results that lack nuance.
But of course, that's only my taste. I only offer this feedback and suggestion as a friendly exchange of ideas and viewpoints. At no point did I intend to be arrogant or anything like that. Sometimes it's hard to avoid misunderstandings when writing short posts like these.

No offense taken, don't worry. Pictures from my "film era" were printed by people with normal color vision. Mine is totally "weird" according to my ophtalmologist. I'm not colorblind in the literal, normally understood, sense of the term but my eyes are particularly sensitive to yellow and blue and less to dark greens and to some dark reds. What I perceive is very beautiful and totally colorful but I may mix some shades or hues sometimes. I don't know what other people "see" but my "color universe" seems to be quite different from normal people's vision. As I said, I need colors to be punchy to really find a picture beautiful. I used to use the "VIBRANT" in-camera setting but several people have mentioned my pictures looked a little "odd", now I'm trying to "attenuate" the intensity of my color palette by using the "LANDSCAPE" setting which should totally fit my own landscape images ... lol ! I have been an Environmental Engineer for 35 years here in Canada, restoring degraded watercourses all over Quebec and I think I developped a sense of humour over the years with the myriad of people I met doing my projects. Let's just be polite and respectful with one another and all should be perfect, my friend.

Best Regards
