another solution to the diopter adjustment is buy a cheap pair of plastic lens glasses and just trim the lens down to fit inside the viewfinder.

No, never worked there but I'm from Penrith so anyone around 52 years old working there I probably went to school with.Remember a job advert in the Herald around then saying some climbing of masts required so a good head for heights needed!!

Russell W Barnes I'm guessing you work at Skelton, do you still need to climb up the mast for maintenance or has H&S banned it? If so have you ever been tempted to take a camera up with you?

Have looked on Ebay....OMG!!!
I can buy three 500C/M with 80mm lens for what they are asking for one of these!
What makes them so special?

Another KX shot, this was the display at the main entrance to this years Royal Horticultural Society flower show at Tatton Park Cheshire UK.
This needed a bit of work in Gimp to remove some people standing against the green screen behind the sign, and some patience to get the shot without anybody walking in front of the sign!

finally got some 35mm films from the last 18 months processed, the Alliums and fountain are from Agfa Vista 200 and the flowers is from a roll or Truprint 200 ASA from I'm guessing mid 1990's exposed at 100 ASA. Not edited apart from size/rotation

All taken using my KX with SMC-M 40-80 zoom

buy cheap glasses online with plastic lenses, take the lens out and using a dremel or similar tool trim the lens down to fit in the viewfinder. Its what i did with my HC-2 prism for my Hasselblad.

A beautiful aircraft killed off because it didn't say Boeing on the side and mass market "cattle" class makes more money per seat. The upside tho you can now go to air museums and take some decent close up images of her.

trying to get those extra images from a roll of film is all part of the fun of shooting film! I've noticed when developing 120 b&w Ilford fp4+ there isn't much film to spare at either end on a 6x6 12 exposure camera.

A Ricoh power grip PG-4 will fit if you either make a hole in the base plate for the locating pin or file the pin down on the winder.
Its not a good fit on my KX as the DoF/mirror lockup button is in the way but the self timer lever is ok

Three images from the latest rolls of Velvia50 and Ektar I have just had developed, shot with Hasselblad 500CM and 80mm lens, First two are Velvia50 (the teddy also had a #10 extension tube used). The dragons body went off to the right another 30 feet under the trees but was too dark to photograph without a tripod.

What exactly did I do wrong with this exposure?

can you remember the shutter speed and f stop you used? compare it to the "sunny 16" rule to give you a rough idea how close the exposure was.

another factor could be Rodinal is normally a stand developer, after the initial stirring you just let it "stand" there on the counter with the occasional stir. the process you described is how I develop films using Ilfosol 3.

if you take the lens off you will see a peg on the right hand side at the 2 'o'clock position, you should be able to move it freely round to the bottom. If not it needs a CLA.

Its more what kind of phone you have rather than the app you want to use, which ever app you try, first look through all the comments on the app to see what people say about the type of phone you have and how they rated it.

with buying anything if the price seems too good to be true then it probably is a scam of some kind, I've been ebaying for several years and only once had to resort to ebays complaints service when trying to buy a Pentax K10d, also got some good deals with it, once sold a hasselblad 500cm body with A12 back for 410!

go to ebay help page and click cancel a order if the scammer hasn't recorded he has shipped the item yet, you should be able to cancel it
