Thanks for all the help.The mistake was mine as I put on an extension tube behind the lens but forgot to switch focus to manual.

A setting must have got changed on my K-X to where the shutter button refused to fire sometimes,don't know if the lockout is focus or exposure.Would like to find setting where it will fire all the time.
Thanks,
Jake

That on camera diffuser is interesting,looks like it could be used for general shooting indoors as well.I do have a variable power flash with a diffuser set and will try it sometime.Don't think I am doing 1-1 most of the time but about 1-1.5 mostly with a Sears 50mm 1.7 but sometimes with a SMC 135-3.5.For me the less equipment that is used the more enjoyable it is.

Thinking I am getting the idea,with a 28mm and 1 inch tube setting would be 55mm.I do use 2 second timer when using tripod but mostly use hand held.Don't think timer would work hand held using viewfinder.Do get a lot of out of focus shots using hand held but a good one comes out ever now and then.
Thanks,
Jake

UV, ND and Polarizing filters ?

I would suggest you get a Polarizer for your most used lens to see what it does for you.It works for shooting clouds and sky also water.Vivitar and others have variable ND filters for little money,they are glass and work well.Buying a cheap plexiglass filter kit might not be a good idea.

I prefer the F and FA as they have an aperture ring.

On a KX you hit the info button while in live view,each time you bump it it magnifies more.

Think exif is wrong for this series of photos,if I remember correctly I was around f8-f11 and the photos look it.Agree they would be better at f2.8-f4.
