We had one of these where I worked circa 1995. The storage media on the one we had was a plug in pcmcia removable hard drive. I think it was about 64mb if i remember correctly. No screen to preview pics either.

We used it to take pics to generate assembly instructions, so largest prints we did were less than 8.5 x 11. It worked for that.

Short stop on a road trip. This bridge was converted to a pedestrian bridge when it was replaced. It was built around the turn of the last century. More photos in my flickr album if interested,

I did this as a tribute to my father in law who passed away around 5 years ago. We were down cleaning up his place and I found the sign he had made from an old screen. He worked for years on his orange tree to get it producing and then he had so many, he would sit by the road and sell them. It's still producing fruit (tree in the background). He lived into his 80's and we really miss him.

There is a K5IIs on the marketplace right now for $265. You would be hard pressed to find a better camera for less. I have had mine a couple of years and the image quality is excellent. Shooting in raw gives you a very large amount of leeway to adjust the highlights and shadows. It really amazes me how much detail can be pulled from the raw files.

You should also go with the best glass you can afford, as the best high end camera with low end glass is going to leave you wanting. I would recommend used K5IIs and used DA35 2.4, could probably be all in for $350-400. That would be an excellent place to start!

You can click on my flickr link for samples from the K5IIs and a bunch of different lenses. There are also a couple of flickr groups for the K5IIs. Good luck!

Thanks! I see too many old things torn down. Some with no attempt to salvage or re-purpose any of the materials. Such a waste.



Thanks bertwert!



Thanks! I was out for a ride and managed to show up at a good time for the lighting and clouds.

Thanks! I try to put some information on my photo's so that people can dig a little deeper if they are interested. I'm not sure on the moire' as I don't see it on my end but I bet you are correct about the resizing.



I'm sure it took a lot of work and time to build, especially for when it was built. I hope it survives. There is some talk that the elderly lady who owns it, plans on donating to the state so it can be saved, but you never know.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Abandoned "Oaky Grove" church near me. Last used in 1949. Found some info about it (don't know how accurate the info is) Walnut Hill Historic District (Knightdale, North Carolina) - Wikipedia

It is good stuff. What they do is bring you some to try with your meal, then you are hooked.

Great colors!

I have used my 50-135 on makeshift extension tubes and it works quite well. I use a 2x converter with the elements removed. One with all of the electrical contacts but no auto focus. Sometimes you can find them really cheap on fleabay.

Thanks for posting!

Nice capture...that's pretty strange. Is that some form of personal entertainment? If so, I am glad I am easily entertained...that looks like work.
