Is using a light meter that big of a deal?

Regarding available light photography, I understand their is really no difference in the metering used in the M6 TTL and non-TTL versions. The TTL in an M6 makes a difference for flash photography only.

The real question is is the $600-$800 difference between an M4-P and M6 worth it? You could do what I do, M4-P for sunny 16 and Pentax MX for everything else, that's 2 cameras for less than the price of a bog-standard M6.

It seems like there are 4 of us who would like to try it out. You want to pair up and give it a whirl?

Just testing the water here, is anybody interested in doing something like this?

I'm thinking we build a list of people interested in trying it out, pair people up and then every pair shoots 2 rolls of film. Post it to the thread and maybe even pick a couple winners?

Kaptivating K-Mount Traveling K1000

I'm not a flickr user, so posting here will have to do. I've managed to shoot the roll of the Fuji 400 C-41 film, some kind of bulk commercial film? In any event, I must admit I wasn't too fussy on the results, but still a great afternoon walking around with the K1000. I have a roll of the T-Max 3200 in the camera now that I will use on Christmas and Boxing day and then ship it onwards.

I have managed to put a pretty significant dent in the lens filter ring. I intend to ship the camera in its current condition to Angie (I'll reach out by email) and I will separately forward a replacement lens to David.

Thanks everyone, it was fun. Looking forward to more pictures.

I was thinking that we could try this again, but this time try out a multiple exposure game? Everyone gets the camera and a roll of exposed film with the leader just sticking out. They shoot one roll with the multiple exposure and then another roll to send forward with the camera. Just spit balling - I've really enjoyed following this thread.

I travel to Calgary regularly for work. Whenever I travel, I will always check the local Kijiji listings. I picked up a very clean, recently CLA'd Rolleiflex 2.8C. It came with the original receipt from purchase in 1956.

Here are a couple from me. All shot on Pentax MX w/40mm or 135mm for the tighter shots.

I'm still closing in on a tighter scanning process, I'm using fine paper to diffuse the light, but you can see how it mottles the sky. I have a sheet of translucent plastic on order to use instead which I expect will deal with the mottled sky.

I have a single roll left, but I will have to try out an E6 kit to see if there is a drop in quality. Once you throw in shipping, developing, shipping back, its almost $40.00/roll, a tad bit on the pricey side for what I use it for.

The pictures look great - these are all SOOC other than some cropping and alignment. First time shooting slide film, and the transparencies look fantastic on their own.

Iím due my first 5 rolls of ektachrome back from Downtown Camera next week. Join the downtown camera AMFM film club and all Kodak products are 25% off.

I also have all my C41 processed there. Save up the rolls, 10 rolls of c41 gets a 20% discount and if you are spending more than$100 on processing and buying more film the shipping is free.

Of course, this is my first time shooting slide film, so I could have 5 useless rolls of film come back.

We should have a policy - the next in line has 1 week to reply and confirm shipping details or they get skipped over. In the event they werenít around they can get back in line for the camera. Eg, skip to danielblues, if Cabstar comes back, they can get in line to receive the camera next.

Great photograph!

I've been face and eyes into a basement reno that I just finished. With the CHristmas break I have finally gotten around to developing my film. These are from a work trip to Calgary in the late spring of this year. All shot on Pentax MX and M 50 f1.7.

Guidance with the MX

I have purchased two MX's. The first works fine, no problems. The second ended up being a bit of a slow moving train wreck. Light meter went, then the shutter speed dial in the viewfinder stopped working and then the shutter went. Repair estimate from Eric was $145, I ended up donating it for parts. I suspect the camera was treated poorly. I love my functional MX however, it travels with me wherever I go.
