I love my Pentax ME Super

Hi folks.
I say ''my'' ME SUPER, but in reality, after today, I gave it to my son, Daniel.
I spent the first hour or so teaching him how to use it and adjust the exposer etc and so, ''ALL'' these images where taken by my son. Some came out with some funky vignetting. I will post one of those up as well. Not sure if it was the developing, the harsh sun, or the lens...or the film. Speaking of film, this was loaded with more 99 cents store film. It was SAMSUNG 200 high def 36 exp film...They just got a bunch in...
all in all, not bad....Real grainy though.

These where all taken at a WW2 museum.

On the way to the museum, we went over these rail road tracks and could not pass up this image opportunity....Here is one of those images with this funky vignetting.
Any ideas ?

These where the images I was able to somewhat salvage by cropping mostly....
Anyway, All in All, I am really amazed at how this Kid is picking up photography.. It is cool watching this eight year old, moving around and composing his shots.

All n All we walked about 1 mile maybe a tad more down these tracks...

The vigneting could have a couple of causes:

The lens shade if you use one that doesn't fit the lens

The lens itself (would normally disappear when stopped down one or two stops)

Stacking more than a couple of filters

Using a DA lens

Your son already has an eye for composing good photos! Handing a camera down is a great way to instill his interest in photography!

Thanks for the thoughts.

We have no lens hood or shade on it.
We have no filters at all on the lens.
Not using A DA lens.
We had it stopped down pretty well. Min F/5.6

RE: Funky vignetting...

That is really strange vignetting you've got going there.

Out of curiosity, are these scans of prints, scans of negatives, or digital versions supplied by the processor?

If they are anything other than scans of the negative, you might want to see if the vignette is present on the negative as well. (There is something about the appearance that makes me think that this is a processing rather than a camera issue.)

It does indeed take a pretty small feller to make the ME Super look that big.

It's great you're letting him have the experience of shooting with film as a youngster. I wish I could get one of my kids to go out shooting with me. They strictly are not interested.

(What's a Huey doing at a WWII museum?)

Ever heard of the Philadelphia Experiment?

Some stuff went backwards.
