My wedding was military. There were six of my ... friends ... with big swords at the door.
That is also how many there are for pal bearers.

don't let the number fool you. I can shoot 4-5 rolls in a matter of an hour or two. this is the reason I use a lot of cheaper fuji film.
Give me a heads up when you ship that puppy. I'll be in D.C. from Tuesday through Friday evening of next week.

That's quite a habit, then. I've generally been letting the digital absorb most of the quantity of shooting, I tend to peck at the film and onl occasionally get really rolling, unless I'm really working something. Feels good to get in a zone like that once in a while, though.

The thought crosses my mind that they would have done that, too, if I had tried to run off. I was so strongly impressed that I am still married to her. And that was July 24, 1965.

OK, OK, my Sightseer negs are now much flatter. I'll fire up the scanner.


(Hrm. Actually, I may have spoken too soon. I seem to be having some issues with this wonky thing. )

I just became aware of this SV project today. Sounds great, although I wish the pix were put on this website, but no matter.

I have a '68 Pentax S1a that is one model more basic than the more deluxe SV. I bought it new in '68 , needed it for my job in the publishing field and I've always been impressed with the pictures.

Back in '70 I took some pictures of my buddy's 'new '70 Chevy Nova SS 350 and if I don't say so myself...they were brochure worthy...end of day...light was perfect.

I also have a handheld Sekonic Selium Light meter....both the S1a and the light meter still work. Tried them out last week.

I have an Ashai Pentax clip on cold shoe as my S1a never had a shoe. I think along with it's max of 1/500th of a second and no shoe...that might of been the differences between the stripper S1a and the more deluxe SV.

Les...

there is a gap in the shutter speeds after 500 on your S1a. In other words, there is a "click" between 1/500 and "T".

Believe it or not, this is an unmarked 1/1000th shutter speed.

The S1a really is an SV with "makeup" and no self-timer. The shutter selection mechanism is the same so while it is unmarked, there is a 1/1000th on the camera...

If Blue doesn't have it, it seems like it must still be with Séamuis.

Séamuis?

I've had that S1a for 41 years....I never knew that....all these years of confining myself to a maximum of 1/500th

Thanks for letting me know...I'm going to give it a shot...poor thing.....41+ years and it's never had it's 1/1000th of a second shutter speed used yet...well...today is the day !!!!

I'm not sure what you mean by 'makeup' ?

Sorry... poorly worded really. I just mean that the shutter speed dial is made up to only go up to 1/500th, but that the functionality is still there under it all. Really it's an SV without the self-timer and treated cosmetically to look like it's a down-market camera with only 1/500th. That's only skin deep. It's every bit the quality camera the SV was.

It's a beautiful camera. I do not have an example in my collection because I have never found a pristine one. Some day.

Would you prefer that in an Asahi S1a or Honeywell H1a version. Such a deal I have for you. You should live so long as to get such a deal. LOL I sound like a used car salesman.
