Used da 300

Hello;

I am sorry for the confusion.

Used items are individual pieces whose price is determined by the condition and it's quite possible that the one for $627.50 sold and then another one came in in better condition for the higher price.

What's going on with Kodak Film?

Hello;

This weekends hot topic news story was the nationwide shortage of baby formula. The lack of availability of goods and services is widespread in the market and the manufacturing of film is no exception. Recently Fuji publicly announced a shortage of their popular 120 format (Medium Format) Fujichrome Velvia 50, Fujichrome Velvia 100, and Fujichrome Provia 100F emulsions. Last year Kodak's Colorado facility had to temporarily stop production of 35mm film due to a supply shortage of tin-free steel (TFS) used for the metal caps of their 35mm film canisters.

Sadly shortages in the current market is a sign of the times and there is little we or any retailer can do much about. We have PO's pending for film and hope to have it available for purchase as quickly as possible.

Pentax mount

Hello;

Another member (h.butz) brought to my attention that you can use Pentax lenses on a Sony Mirrorless camera with an adapter.

He suggested The FotodioX Mount Adapter for Pentax K-Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera

I checked our inventory and found this item.

The LA-KE1 Magic Ring Pentax K Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter from Monster Adapter allows select LA-KE1-mount autofocus DSLR lenses to be used on Sony E-Mount camera bodies while retaining electronic communication and autofocus function. This adapter has a built-in AF switch, screw-drive focus motor, aperture motor, and communication and power supply contacts. It can support KAF, KAF2, KAF3, and KAF4 lenses from 1986 to the present and can automatically identify traditional screw-drive focus lenses, SDM/DC lenses with built-in motors, lenses with traditional lever-type aperture, and electromagnetic aperture lenses.

Replacement battery
Posted By Chuck-B&H

Hello;

Always a pleasure to help !

Wein MRB625 1.35V Zinc-Air Battery
BH #WE625 • MFR #W9901201

We carry this as a replacement for the PX625, PX13, and MR-9 mercury cells batteries. I've had mixed results with these batteries. Years ago Manfrotto (I believe) sold an adapter that allowed the use of current batteries in Luna Pro's and I even had an Olympus OM1's battery chamber converted to take readily available batteries. Selling the OM1 was not one of my better moments and I hope whom ever has it now appreciates just what they have as my more favored (at the time) OM2's shutters have both died.

You may want to check out this Gossen post: MRB625 zinc-air batteries, which have a cell voltage of 1.35 V and are of identical shape and size as the V625PX and PX13 mercury batteries, are available from WeinCell or Exell Battery as replacements. The smaller MRB675 or PR44 hearing aid batteries can be used with a mechanical adapter as an inexpensive alternative. These batteries are activated before use by removing a protective foil, after which the electrolyte dries out within a short period of time and the battery has to be replaced again. The major disadvantage of zinc-air batteries for amateur photographers is thus their relatively short service life.

Both can use this battery:

Power various electronics with this button cell KA76 LR44 1.5V Ultra Alkaline Battery from Kodak. It features 1.5V of output power and a nominal capacity of 120mAh. The battery is designed for devices requiring intermittent burst of high power, such as flash units for photography. An environmentally conscious choice, the battery is free of both mercury and cadmium.

Hello everyone, I thought you would be interested in knowing about todays Deal Zone Specials. Specials last for either 24 hours or when supplies run out.

Enhanced with an adjustable LED video light and high-speed sync, this Mecablitz 44 AF-2 Digital Flash from Metz is a great addition to any Pentax camera kit. This model is compatible with the system's P-TTL metering for accurate, automatic control over light output, though it still offers full manual control for those who desire it. With a guide number of 144' at ISO 100 and 105mm and a zoom head with a range of 24-105mm, this flash is able to balance size with versatility. For wider optics, a pull-out diffuser panel can expand the coverage to 12mm. The head also boasts the ability to tilt upwards 90 and rotate right 120 and left 180. Additionally, this model can be used as a remote TTL slave with compatible system flashes.

The Mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital Flash from Metz is a shoe mount flash, with an illuminated rear touchscreen, designed to be compatible with Pentax/Samsung cameras featuring P-TTL. This flash also has a high guide number of 170' at ISO 100 and 105mm as well as a built-in USB port that allows for future firmware updates via the internet. A high quality metal base allows quick and easy attachment to the camera. The 52 AF-1 is designed to fully support a Pentax/Samsung camera's P-TTL system. It can be operated as a TTL slave unit that can be controlled by the camera's own built-in commander mode or as a master itself.

Improve your on-camera lighting with the Mecablitz 26 AF-2 digital Flash from Metz. This model is designed to work with Pentax cameras which feature P-TTL. It has a guide number of 85' at ISO 100 and with the telephoto attachment. Integrated into the flash is a wide-angle diffuser which increases coverage from 24-85mm with the use of different attachments. The 26 AF-2 also has an LED video light with 2 output settings as well as the ability to tilt upward 90 for bouncing your light.

Hello;

Like most camera designs today, the K-70 omits an anti-aliasing filter for increased sharpness. There are no in camera filters that I know of. Tiffen makes Hot Mirror filters for most common filter thread sizes in standard and ND varieties which should help with infrared light pollution.

Hello;

As a former darkroom printer (until my darkroom became a playroom for my young son) I understand your frustration. The restrictions in shipping chemicals especially white powdery substances has been in effect since 9/11. The paper work required for the shipment of chemicals is not something our warehouse can accommodate and I apologize for the inconvenience.

For years, I used Photographers Formulary and they have the ability to process the necessary paper work for the shipment of photographic chemicals.

I first began purchasing from them when I first started to develop my prints in Amidol.

I hope this helps.

The Pentax 8.5x21 U-Series Papilio II Binoculars has a dedicated strap attachment. I checked with our store bino counter and if have the original strap that came with the Binocular, you could un-loop the old strap and put on this strap (OPSMBISTBLK) instead through the adapter. I am sorry but we do not sell the strap lugs separately.

microphone options for Pentax KP
Posted By Chuck-B&H

Hello;

The Rode VideoMic is probably the most widely used and recognized on camera microphone. It will definitely improve your audio over the cameras built in mic.

The Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro with an X/Y pick up pattern will give you a more natural sounding audio recording.

The Saramonic Blink 500 B2 is a great inexpensive 2 mic interview wireless lav kit if recording 2 people or an interviewer and person of intrest.

The Azden PRO-XR Digital Camera-Mount Wireless Omni Lavalier Microphone System is another wireless lav set up from a major audio manufacturer.

My wife is a singer and I've been recording her bands live performances for a few years now using a Tascam DR40 recorder. Keep in mind that if using a camera mounted mic, if moving during capture the audio will change and is something not that noticeable with a built in mic recording. For me, using the stationary recorder and moving while filming has given me better audio sound with a more professional looking/sounding video. Sync'ing the video and audio is of course a challenge in post.
