well, for some, price and availability could be the deciding factor

that is one of the reasons I like Pentax

its varied camera bodies and lenses give us a lot of options

I'm not a technical savvy person

so I tend to research and read reviews and look at ratings

but how trustworthy are they?

what do you think

and why

any recommended sites, including the Pentax forums, to use

good additions

remember this is a carry kit that is supposed to be small so it can't have every thing

personally I might carry a multi pocketed vest, it gives you places to store such items and more such as lenses

the problem is that they get heavy real fast if you are not careful

I had to replace one that was 25 or more years old recently

I chose this one

Andy would have loved the internet, twitter and the rest:






QuoteQuote:

What's the meaning of the phrase 'Fifteen minutes of fame'?

This is a well-known as a quotation from Andy Warhol. It does derive from Warhol - his actual line was "In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.".

What's the origin of the phrase 'Fifteen minutes of fame'?
Famous for fifteen minutesIn February 1968 Warhol exhibited his first international retrospective exhibition at the Moderna Museet gallery in Stockholm. The exhibition catalogue contained "In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.". It is far and away the best-known of the many quotations attributed to Warhol, in fact it is probably the only comment of his that most people know.

The line began to bore Warhol in later years when interviewers kept asking him about it. In 1979 he did repeat it though, claiming that the line had truth - "my prediction from the sixties finally came true: In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes.".

very possible

mine had removable partitions attachable with velcro

have you tried removing the tripod foot and storing it in a separate compartment


yes both my K 3 and K 3 II have the grip

it is a tight fit but I can push/pull so the compartment closes

when I use my lowepro 400AW, I either position the tripod foot to the side so it is angled or to the front of the pack or removed it completely

An extensive array of AF buttons and switches is placed between the zoom ring and focusing ring. The tripod mount behind the focusing ring can be turned freely when loosened; soft click stops at placed at 90-degree intervals. Furthermore, it is possible to remove the tripod foot entirely. When the foot is removed, only a small stub remains.
