Pentax Toughness

What has your camera been through that you thought was amazing/interesting.

For me, I've dropped my camera on rocks at a waterfall's edge, impact on the lens edge. I thought it was screwed, but a few minutes later it powered on just as if nothing happened.

Last time I was in CFS Alert, a few of us went out to shoot "night" shots. Mine, the old Pentax was doing real good. As was the Canon. The Nikon's battery was freezing and mirror was not actuating quite right. I only had a set of half dead Li-Ions and my kit 18-55. I was surprised at how well it did.

The temperature for the night shoots was nearing -40c. We spent a few hours out there taking some shots. As I was inexperienced with star shooting I thought I did ok.

Nice shots. Particularly like the night shot.

I'm full of praise with my K-x. Its plenty solid for the price bracket.

Would you be willing to share where you took the night picture? The lighting is really cool.

At CFS Alert. It was down by Upper Dumbell Lake by the pump house. At around 10pm-2am. The glow near the horizon was the sunlight just coming up.
