Pentax K5IIs with O-GPS1 attached and Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 ART on a Manfrotto 405 Geared tripod head.


With this set up I was able to get this Image of the night sky:

I have not shot it unfortunately. The film body is a beauty but I do not know if the shutter timing is accurate. It has a leaf shutter on the back and it is fun to watch the blades in action. The body is close to mint in condition but I have my doubts if metering/shutter is accurate on this film body and hence I priced it mostly for the lens and the DKL adapter.

Cheers,
Hin

Test the slow speeds (1s, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8,), usually if those speeds are working and not sticking, then the shutter is working. Also, it is very common for the slow speeds to be too slow on old leaf shutters, they need regular servicing to keep the speeds accurate.

That is a great idea, I will check it tonight.

The Xenon 1.9 is an awesome, awesome lens when adapted to the K-5. It's a shame that the front barrel metal is so soft - I've owned about 5 or 6 copies over the years (including 2 I have currently), an dof them, only 1 had a filter ring that wasn't at least slightly dented or out of round.

I guess this gear shot from my instagram (@asp_photos) qualifies as Gear P0rn. Took this before heading to a shoot yesterday (didn't bother to lay out the lenses which included my 20mm, 40mm, and 90mm Voigtlanders in addition to the Nokton on the K-5 IIs).

^ Hmmm this looks much like a Japan Camera Hunter 'In Your Bag' picture, except it's not got the bag. Also if you submitted it you might get some good-natured ribbing from Bellamy or his readers for using lomography film.

SMC Pentax F* 300mm and SMC Pentax K 28/2.8

With a male to male reversing adapter to connect them both (cross post from another thread) - is this a first?



I have no idea what the magnification is but clearly high. Second shot ever with this setup. Max aperture (300mm) and f8 (28mm)



Time to find some bugs in bright sunlight (this setup EATS light)

Thought I would show everyone my collection of cameras.
The KX is my first slr I bought in about 1985, next was the KM Dslr in 2009 and lastly the Hasselblad 500cm this year.
The Ziess Ikon Super Ikonta 230/2 was my grandfarthers and was made in 1936, to my knowledge its never been serviced
and works perfectly.
