If anyone decides to start making nice wooden LX grips, sign me up. Especially one with the extra lug as Chris says. Somehow the vertical dangling LX seems wrong....

Okay, well, y'all be patient, please. We moved into a new house a while back and I still haven't unpacked most of my hand tools. I know where most of them are, I just have to unpack them and then organize where I'll put them. I used to have a nice shop in our old house. I lost that when we moved. Just a small, tired old workbench in the garage is all I have at the moment. But this little project is just what I need to get my tools unpacked and a work place set up.

That'a a very nice KX and with an appropriate "K" 50mm f1.4 as opposed to the smaller M version!

Actually it is the M series lens. No biggie will eventually live on my incoming MX. In the meantime it's taking some really badass black and white shots.

Looks just like my KX. I have the M-series 50/1.4 too and I like mine a lot.

Fooled me with the perspective and I missed the M in the shadows. I only have one original K lens myself and also have that M lens and know that it's a very good performer.

That's like going from the sublime to the ridiculous - the only greater contrast would have been with one of the 6x7 series!

What is it with everyone in this forum? Do you all have mitts the size of Chewbacca's? Every time I see pics of people holding up their Spotties or K-series bodies, the size of them relative to the hand makes them appear almost MX-sized to me!!

I saw some Lomo 110 in DigiDirect's Elizabeth St store last time I was in Melbourne, but I have no camera in which to put it. Hopefully enough 110 shooters pull out their old cameras to keep the demand for that line high enough for survival.

I have vaguely considered trying a medium format camera at one stage or another - I have the tanks and reels, and could develop it easily enough - but I would need to invest in a scanner or come up with some alternative lash-up to digitize it.

Its great, i actually work in a camera store here in NZ, and we stock the Lomo in 35, 110, and 120, and its great, i have my 3 110, a 6x6 Bronica and my 645, im bringing an ME Super online too, I have several customers with 110 cameras that are being brought back to life, and a few MF cameras too. Its quite cool to be in the middle of a mini revival in film.

both formats are easely digitized with an DSLR as a way of 'scanning'. Fairly easy, I like it more then using a scanner. And of course you can still print them directly on paper...
For the way of 'scanning with the DSLR' I use this system to make it even easier: http://http://www.elvinshoot.net/opemus_als_scanner.html

First of all, I envy you.

Second, I have so far used Lomo's standard (no-funky-colour) 100, 400 and 800 ASA and found it performs as well as any other colour print film, and also their B&W Earl Grey and Lady Grey (both of which I've home-developed as if they were the T-max of the same speed, which I'm told they are, with OK results). I was thinking of trying some of their ultra-slow 6 ASA tungsten film, but I would need the mother of all tungsten-daylight converter filters (I think I have one, actually; must check) and it would probably bring it down to 3 or 2 or something even more horrible. That will be one for my S1a when it comes back from its CLA/refurb; calculate the Sunny 16 exposures and tape them to the back of the camera... (Let's see; f/16 at 1/4, say, is f/11 at 1/8; f/8 at 1/15; f/5.6 at 1/30; f/4 at 1/60; f/2.8 at 1/125, f/2.0 at 1/250. So... usable wide open on a bright sunny day. Now take another TWO stops off for the dense orange filter I will need, and we're talking f/2.0 at 1/60; on a sunny day, the 55/2.0 kit lens will only just work hand-held.)
