Moving to Tropics - Preventing Fungus?
Posted By matoqui

Hi,

I use 2 of these in a Pelican 1450, and monitor the humidity with a meter. Usually when I open the case (after it has been closed for a few hours) the measurement is 40%-60%, which I understand kills any fungus. You can probably use any air-tight container.

Best wishes,
Manuel

My first digital camera was a Canon Rebel with 6 mega-pixels. I framed several 12x18in. prints from that camera, but had to be very careful processing the image. Processing is easier when you have 16megs.

I use a tele-wide OVF made for a Yashica 35. I find it useful with the 18-55 kit lens. The "tele" marks seem to correspond to a FL ~ 45mm; the "wide" marks to about 30mm. Outside the wide marks you can see a scene that roughly corresponds to a FL ~ 18mm. I did had to adjust the screws of the OVF a little to get it aligned with the lens.

I like the square format a lot. It reminds me of a 6x6 MF camera that I use to have. I was listening to an interview by Brook Jensen, editor of Lenswork. He commented that once he taped the viewfinder to be able to visualize a square image.

Hello Jorn!

Congratulations for your new k5. Pictures #2 and #4 are very nice. I would consider cropping #4 to a square format, keeping the top section as necessary to show some of the ocean. Same thing with #2.

Hi! Me too like the picture of the tree. Nice job! A square composition, with most of the sand removed from the image, might work better.

Why did you buy a K-01?
Posted By matoqui
Replies: 156
Views: 20,436
I purchased mine two weeks ago, with the 40mm lens, for $360. I was looking for a small, relatively inexpensive camera to take to places where I don't dare to bring my dslr (i.e. my sailboat), to use when I don't want to carry too much weight, and simple enough for my wife and daughter to use. I am very satisfied with my purchase. I am even playing with the idea of buying again the 21ltd (which I sold less than a year ago, but was my favorite lens on the k5). But for the time being the kit lens and the 40mm are good enough.
