Nothing big this year, I had to recover from last year, almost bought the 21mm on Black Friday sales. OK, something small: Some film rolls. I inherited (so no purchase) a 6x9 camera which I have to try out now.

Pentax K-70 Giveaway first snow

Currently I am using the K-1 as my only digital camera, and I am very happy with it in general. Only sometimes I wish more focal length, for which an APS camera could work. In the telephoto area, it could help to pick the special detail out of the scene, like the tiles in the shown photo. In the macrophoto area, it would help to keep distance by changing my 100mm lens to effectively 150mm. For macrophotos, the K-70 would be even better than the new K-3 because it has the turnable display.

I have been using an MZ5 for many years, and after playing with my new K-1 only after I bought it, I now start again with film, at least sometimes. Its a different feeling. You have prepare more thoroughly, you cannot simply shoot and see the result and apply corrections immediately, and meanwhile exposure bracketing is also expensive.

Have fun!

Got it fixed!
The trick is, to apply the same procedure, using the same cables, just on another computer, running on the same O/S.
I'm sorry that I cannot explain it,

IPA suitable for cleaning?

so far I thought, IPA would be a good means for cleaning lens surfaces. In the instructions for my latest lens (85mm), Pentax write to "never use any organic solvent such as thinner, alcohol, or benzine, etc. to remove dust on the lens". Is this said only to avoid that people use by mistake one of the aggressive ones, or ist IPA indeed also not usable? I believed, IPA is the ideal solvent - removing fat, not aggressive, not water, not leaving traces. I hope, I did not damage coatings in the past.

Many thanks for your opinion,

I like my 400mm lens for isolating things.
