synching two older Bowens monolites (400D)

Anyone know how I can get the second one to fire. Both have just one large sync lead/jack in the back. I can plug one directly into the side of my k-3 and it works great.
Can't think of any way to get the second one to fire. Any thoughts? Thanks!

that's how it works on any manual lenses I've used, the camera just meters for the widest aperture.

here's a few shots from yesterday using an extension tube. very sharp and decent bokeh

Item for Sale
Sicor MC 28mm f2.8, rare, sleeper PK lens

Asking Price
30.00 GBP

Item Location
London (UK)

Item Description
30 or best offer and 3 postage within the UK

There's not much information out there about this one, a bit of info about the 28mm XL or the AUTO, which this is not.
It takes 52mm filters, has 1:5 macro, it's fairly close focusing and takes very sharp photos, even wide open.
I've done some crazy magnified macros using tubes on this as well.

Very good lens, selling as it's simply surplus to requirements.

Item for Sale
Tamron SP 60-300mm F/3.8-5.4 Model 23A

Asking Price
50.00 GBP

Item Location
London (UK)

Item Description
I advertised this one awhile back hoping to get 75 ($115) - now selling for firm 50 - and this is a fantastic manual focus zoom lens .
Please see my original listing for photos here:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/81-expired-listings/304520-sale-expired-t...model-23a.html

They sell on ebay for up to 130. This particular copy takes great photos, A sleeper lens, this is very sharp at 300 with a steady hand (or tripod). The 48FH lens hood included sells for around 10-20 on its own.

Equivalent to 90-450mm lens on a crop sensor and it has an interesting very close focusing macro option at 60mm (see spider photos). You have to zoom out to 60mm the push and turn in the lens like with the pentax-A 35-105mm f3.5. Then you push and pull on the zoom to focus (as opposed to turning) and/or move closer and farther from the subject.

Signs of normal use, a few small specks of dust but not enough to affect performance. No fungus or scratches on the glass, aperture blades working perfectly, f-stop ring clicks nicely. With a PKA adapter (not included) you will have automatic light metering etc.

Comes with front Tamron cap, correct lens hood and rear Pentax cap (no adapter included).

some info here
Tamron SP Adaptall-2 60-300mm F/3.8-5.4 Model 23A

UK Postage 12 as it's a heavier excellently built metal lens (or collection in London - Hackney, innit). Europe 15, rest of world roughly 20

feel free to ask any questions, larger photos available on request

Item for Sale
TAMRON ADAPTALL SP 90MM F2.5 AD2 52BB MACRO LENS

Asking Price
105.00 GBP

Item Location
London (UK)

Item Description
105 or near offer

Excellent manual focus lens in very good condition, takes fantastic photos, beautiful bokeh, very easy to focus, particularly because it's so bright in the viewfinder

Comes with boxes as in photos, front Tamron lens cap, plastic original hood, no adapter or rear cap but will be safely packaged for shipping.

Apertures click nicely into place, with a PKA adapter you will have automatic light metering. No fugus or haze, a few specks of dust which won't affect photo quality. There is some dust under the plastic bit that shows you the focusing distances but that's purely cosmetic (see the 6th photo).

Also welcome to come by (Hackney, innit) and try the lens and pay cash - will throw in a good espresso.

The first image taken with the lens is using a tube and the other two below it are taken with only the lens a few minutes ago, effortlessly...


Selling as I have the Bokina and the 50-135mm, which cover all my needs.

Used it last night alongside the 50mm and the photos from the 43mm are just a bit more vivid and maybe a little sharper, not to mention just that little bit extra width. These photos available on request, don't really have permission to post them online.

Meanwhile, there's this

doesn't get much better than that as far as reviews go!
