Not a Pentax camera but will take old Petax K lenses, a Chinon CE4 (and later versions) had a little lever that allowed you make multiple exposures.

Brexit is not going to happen all at once (although some politicians would like that). There will be a transition period and if the current version of the UK Governmentís deal gets accepted then quite close alignment with the EU.

Plastic - Why so much shy-away, hatred?

In my formative, early employment years I worked for a major aerospace company in their plastics and composite materials labs. This was in the early eighties. I was introduced to polymers which were astonishing in terms of strength and stiffness. These engineering polymer materials are finding their way into everyday life and make a huge difference to what we used to call ďplasticĒ. I have been looking at some of the plastic lenses and I think we are seeing some of these engineering reinforced polymers being used here.

If you havenít tried this yet, try downloading the latest version of DCU from Pentax. It may have updated for the latest version of MacOSX.

Hi Helen😊
Lovely story, thank you, and I agree about getting the shot right in camera. As someone who started in the late seventies with a Russian Zenith slr, I too had to learn to ďget it rightĒ or waste film. The habit is hard to shake.

Not sure I agree on what you say about the AF Mode button on the left of the body casing. On my K3 the button is located in a concave mounting panel that allows me to find it be touch very effectively and quickly.

Iíve been using a Yongnuo YN585EX with my K3 and Iím quite happy with. Itís a p-ttl synced flash and works really well for me. Have used it manual too and it produces a lovely quality of light. Got mine off ebay and Iíve seen them on Amazon.
