ESII in Modern-day Shoot

My ESII never got this kind of use, but I do remember it fondly: Stephen Dowling and His Pentax ESII at a Gig - Lomography

An enjoyable and interesting article, with some good old fashioned rock & roll photos. The shots are remarkably clear for a 400 ISO film pushed three stops.

It is really sort of liberating to use the vintage gear as it was intended to be used. Concerts? Yes! Sports? Yes! Throw it in the backpack for a wilderness shoot? Yes! Street? Definitely!

All of the above are a few of the good reasons to not own a pristine copy of anything that you intend to use!


( KX was pristine until it bumped up against the edge of a Arca-Swiss plate on another camera while being jostled in the bag...)
