I've tried this kind of scanners and the DR is poor, not workable at all. Much better to build your own dark box and stick a good compact camera (RAW capable) to digitize the negatives. The downside is the processing...
Anyone know of software that could crop and invert colors automatically? So that only color temperature or minor adjustments would be needed afterwards?

Hi Brian, I also agre that you could expose for a bit longer. A good rule of thumb is that you can use time value as high as FocalLength/500 before you see star trails in your photograph.
Are you doing PP? if so, you could try the clarity slider to make the stars stand out.
Regarding composition, It would be nice to make out more of the foreground. The horizon and forground serve as anchor for the starry sky.[COLOR="Silver"]

Your latest de-acquisition

My latest de-acquisition was my Pentax MX-1. I bought a Lumix LX100 to replace it. Almost the same weight and dimentions.
I do miss the tilting display and extra reach of the MX-1 (112mm vs 75mm). I wish Pentax would make a succesor with a 1 inch sensor!

I visited the Saxonian Switzerland National Park (Sächsische Schweiz) a lot during my stay in germany and also the czech side (Bohemian Switzerland). Late autumn was my favorite season to go there.
Not from this fall, but these were my last photos with the great Pentax MX-1.

Hi, I like the ones I list because the background is interesting aswell as the subjects and there are very few or no distracting elements in them.

There is a maximum area you can save at a time. But the file size depends on how information-dense (did I invent a new word?) The chosen area is. I've gotten areas as big as 2Gb

Haha, thank you for all your replies! It's easy to remember why I was using this forum so much, always helpful people around.

@Digitalis: Ha! You do photography for a living if I remember correctly? Honestly, the sony is getting less use since I swapped my MX-1 for an LX100...
@Aslyfox, yes, that is what I would like. I had the status once due to activity as mentioned below your message. I think I've contributed in other ways if not a direct transfer (have bought through the links and else)
@pjv, thank you! that's the info I needed
@BigMackCam, yep yep, I get you - wouldn't ask em just like that.. Might be difficult to get likes with my signature though XP!

I haven't been active for quite some time in the forums due to a lot of moving and travelling. Now, I would like to post my DA21 lens for sale in the market place. Is there a way to recover the Pentaxian status without paying membership?

I am no expert, but I understand macro lenses are designed to offer a near-flat field of focus ONLY at macro focusing distances. The field of focus curves fast after that. So, I don't think your comparison makes much sense.
I read a very interesting article at Lensrentals blog if you would like to dig on it.

Don't worry about no flash. In my experience, continuous lighting is in the end much better option to ensure even lighting across the frame. It is also cheap! All I had to be careful was to use lightbulbs evenly so that their color temperature would stay the same through their life. Just keep in mind not to overheat the artwork!

Wooow! amazing that they actually pulled this out. I would really like to own such camera. I know I won't because I can't justify this kind of money. Even if I had it to spare, I'd travel somewhere probably.. But anyway OP, keep in mind everybody's priorities and tastes are different.

I must admit I ended up selling all my Pentax gear after backpacking with it for 4 months in a row. I bought a used Sony A7 and 19/2.8, 40/1.4 and 90/2.8 (all used) for far less than I had invested in the K-3 plus limiteds (all used). Not saying one is better at all! just different. I have become well used to manual focusing and very happy with the lighter, smaller kit.
Prestige, brand loyalty? couldn't care less: The 19mm is a Sigma (for APS-C, which I happily crop and get a 25mm super cheap, sharp 100gr fast AF lens!), the 40mm is a voigtlaender and the 90mm is a Contax G!
Wanting to shoot some film the other day I realized I had no lens to mount on my Pentax P30t and so started looking into a Leica CL for around 130EUR but even that seems high and ended up buying a Revue 400SE rangefinder (with fixed 40/1.7 lens) for 20EUR. The difference will go to film and developing!!

For the spinning one you mean? I wanted to direct attention the eyes as the object turns to face front and then to the specular highlights (specially the one running through the handle) when it turns to face back. Do you see it as inconsistent and distracting or just because you were paying attention to the lighting more than to the effect?
