Lovely capture. I remember doing the tarn shelf walk in that national park as a kid. Will have to get back there sometime (might have to wait a couple of years ��). Thanks for sharing.

Edit: pretty sure I would have just had my Agfa Sillette which taught me a lot!

Does look a bit drab. Is this photo reversed or is the drivetrain on the left?

What carrying bag/system to use on walks/hikes with very young children
Posted By Brisboy

I am in a similar situation with four kids between 10 and 2 yrs old. I usually use one of those form fitting slr bags, sometimes with a neoprene pouch clipped to the side for an extra lens. One solution is to get my 10 yr old to carry my K-5 with my 18-55 attached or a small prime. This has the added advantage of him starting to want to take photos too. If I have a pack I'll carefully pack in lenses in the same neoprene pouches and just carry the camera on its strap but that's not ideal.

Thinking of reacquiring a K-x...
Posted By Brisboy

I've just sold my k-x which I had from new and bought a used k-5. The k-5 is much better from a usability point of view and bild quality and not that different in the hand in terms of size. K-5 has a much quieter shutter and much better damping. What I really missed on the k-x was that it only had one e-dial so you can only adjust one parameter at a time which is often annoying. AA batteries was also both convenient and annoying in terms of being more annoying to charge and replace but also readily available while out and about.

If you're talking faulty parts to watch for then the e-dial was unreliable for me. I had the whole top plate replaced under warranty early on due to the e-dial and the replacement one had just started to play up too. And once the e-dial goes it's very hard to control anything as that's the main adjustment.

I had a brief flirtation with a k-100d and I think if I got a second body I'd look for a k-10d or something for the different sensor type (lots of people love ccd colours).

Interesting choice of subject for black and white. I like the light and composition. I guess leaving the colour to our imaginations is part of the idea.
