Nature Solar Eclipse 2016 - Minahasa, North Celebes, Indonesia

Here's from today's Solar Eclipse. My area got only 97% so sorry not total.
K5 + old Tamron 28-300mm + manual 2x TC (with extra fungus inside) + cheap ND1000 explains the unsharpness and aberrations, lack of photographic knowledge explains the mix framings :o

Oh well, my combo FA 50/1.4 + K5 suffers from front focusing from f/1.4 till about f/2.5 like 90% of the shots.
Is there a way to really cure this headache?

K5 + Samyang 85/1.4 Impossible to find focus at f/1.4 Focusing aid needed?

It's a great lens and I think everyone should have this as this lens really is a steal. I suppose everyone with Samyang 85/1.4 experienced this, it's (almost) impossible to find focus at f/1.4 -LV will help, but is there another solution to this?

K-x Eyepiece/Viewfinder Replacement

I gave my K-x to a friend a few months back, and now it developed that misty, murky Eyepiece/Viewfinder problem. From some thread I bumped into, it seems the only cure is replacing it. Anyone know where exactly I can buy this thing?

I just realized that I'm getting older :o As a sucker of old manual focus glasses, I used to get more focused than the miss-focused pics, but it's now the other way around. Now I really needed one of those focusing screen. I see several versions of those Chinese made screen, are they all the same?

Today is a very special day for me. I met an 'old friend' of mine, a K100D Super, but not just any K100Ds, this is The K100Ds, this is actually my ex-camera, my first DSLR, my very first Pentax. I have written the a bit of a story on how I first got this camera here. I bought this used from a friend who at that time was upgrading. There were newer bodies on sale, but I can only afford this K100Ds. He he told me that this is in fact his first Pentax, too and that he also bought used it from someone overseas. After getting a K20D, I sold this camera about two years ago to a friend, jumping up from pocket cams. My friend then, upgrading also to K20D, sold this K100Ds to his friend who are looking for a better options than taking pictures with cellphone cameras. The 'story' continues as this camera was sold again because it's owner upgraded to K-x, and was bought by another person, also new to photography at that time.



I was invited by a friend to join his photo shoot session today, and there I met the 'the last' guy who owns this K100Ds and still using it till today. He is now the leader of the biggest photo club in my region, thousands of members. I offered him to switch camera for the whole session and I shoot hundreds of frames the whole afternoon. I even waited for sunset and snap a few frames.






An amazing camera indeed, this K100Ds still impress me with sharp images, beautiful colors, and great handling. It look just the way when I first held it in my hands, still performs flawlessly, still gives and still going strong! I have to say that for a while I was a bit ashamed. I admit I was getting a bit more 'gear oriented' lately, thinking that newer, more expensive gears is the only way to improve my photography now, that I probably need a newer and better camera, a Full Frame perhaps.. :o Today's encounter with my old friend reminded me again that gears are merely tools, and sometimes I blame them for my own incapability.



Earlier tonight while copying the pics from today's photo shoot I got curious about the shutter count of that K100Ds, so I check it with PhotoMe. I was kinda shocked with the s.c. of the last image: 117.706! Boy, I don't know how much more this camera can give, but looking back though time I do know that it already given me -and off course all of it's owners- so much.
