A stereo Brian may on a Pentax ESII

Hello all

Last year, I met Brian May of Queen at an exhibition launch. The launch invites had a picture of him taking a mirror selfie with an ESII, my favourite SLR, back in the 70s.

I had a fantastic chat with him about the ESII and film photography, and remembered to bring my ESII with me when I interviewed him for the BBC a few months later...

Er yes thanks for that - you seem to have encouraged me to go out and buy the same stereo adapter - I really don't need any more GAS encouragement thank you :-)

It's due here on my birthday so I suppose that's some justification. Now I have to go and buy some slide film too...

The stereo adapter works on digital, too...

That was a good read. The video interview clearly shows his passion!
Thanks for sharing!
