I am glad to see PF still thriving, although it's been a few years since I was active here. Still happy with my K-mounts, even if my most recent camera is a K-10D

Item for Sale
Ink Republic CIS for Epson 1400 - MOSTLY FREE (buyer pays shipping)

Asking Price
0.00

Shipping Destinations
Worldwide

Item Description
Free to good home if you will pay shipping. Otherwise it's going in the trash.

I bought the Ink Republic Continuous Inkflow System several years ago based on personal research and recommendations from DPR users. I've never been able to make it work reliably and I don't like the results with the bulk inks I've used in it. I'm going back to the OEM cartridges and I'll just curse Epson every time it costs me $110 to replace them.

The condition is used in reasonably good condition. It was on my 1400 and I've removed it. Includes the cartridges, chips, tubes, tube guides, and ink bottles.

You will need to adapt it to your own printer using the instructions on IR's web site. There is an extra set of the chips that indicate "full" because something went wrong at some point. You may need to replace these with IR at some point. I've read that they can be cranky.

I reserve the right to choose the recipient among the interested parties, so the first respondent may or may not be the person who receives it.

Good luck.

For Sale - Sold: DA* 50-135mm/2.8 and other items

I've inspected it and the best I can say is "probably". It looks like there is a base plate that could be unscrewed and you could put a different head on there. But, I can't say for certain because I haven't tried to unscrew it and I'm not going to. I don't want to scratch the paint or run the risk of stripping the screws. It's in pristine shape the way it is and I don't want to change that for whomever buys it.

The 3-way tilt/pan head that is on the tripod has a removable base plate.

Thanks

Hi Marc,

Dang, I wish I had known. You know how I want that FA*--I would've definitely given you a shout. I've already received payment on the DA*. But, if something comes up, I'll let you know.

BTW, I destroyed my tandem yak. Sadly, not on the water...

Item for Sale
DA* 50-135/2.8 and other items

Asking Price
Multiple (see below)

Item Description
I've been away from the photo forums for most of the last year. Work is very busy for me and photography isn't quite the obsession that it once was. I'm cleaning out my closet to make room for my next obsession--kayaking. Some of you may not know me, but I was here when PentaxForums started and I've had several successful buy/sell transactions with other forum regulars.

Most of these items are new or in "like new" condition. I don't baby my equipment, but I don't abuse it either. Expect minor amounts of usage. Photos below.

Pentax SMC-P DA* 50-135/2.8 - SOLD

I bought this in June 2008 from B&H. I'm selling it because I just don't use it and it's too expensive to just leave on the shelf. I don't have an actual count, but I'd say less than 300 total photos taken with the lens. Box is intact, with purchase receipt. The black, padded canvas sleeve shows signs of normal wear--a few scuffs but no rips or tears. Comes with a 67mm HOYA HMC Super UV0 filter.

SLIK PRO 340DX Travel Tripod - $70

I bought this in April at Keeble & Shuchat in Palo Alto, CA. My Manfrotto died on me while I was on a work trip and I wanted a new tripod. Paid $120--going for $90 on B&H. I like the heft of this tripod--it's a keeper, but it's just a bit too long for my backpack. After my trip, I bought a replacement Manfrotto.

Pacsafe 85 Backpack protector - $55

I bought this for our trip to Europe this summer after reading several guidebooks talking about theft. I was a bit too paranoid, but I was carrying several thousand dollar in photo/computer gear around in our rental car. I suppose it's a cheap insurance policy. It was fine for what it is and I definitely see where it could come in handy in a lot of situations. I just don't think I will need it again in the foreseeable future.

Apple iPod Touch 8GB - $175

Bought from the Apple store on the Apple campus in Cupertino, CA. Receipt shows purchase date of 28 May 2009, so the warranty period is still valid. I bought this as a gift and it turns out the recipient already had one, so I bought her a kayak instead. I took the Touch with me to France and it was nice on the plane. But, I already have an iPod Classic that I prefer (and I don't need "An App for That"). The iPod has been inside a case (included) since Day 1 and when I carried it in my backpack, it was inside a velvet pouch. Only minor evidence that it's not brand new. The Apple earbuds were not used. The data cable was used by me, but it's in great shape also.

To be honest, if Walmart decides to come to Oz, there is little you will be able to do about it. Just lay back and try not to think about.

Wow, another southern, anti-shrub, fervent gun owner who shoots k-mount. I'm guessing we've just about exhausted that particular sub-genre.

Besides the DA*'s, I also like my Stoeger over/under 12 gauge.

F 50mm f/1.7...good one?

If you can get the F50/1.7 for under $100US, then my advice is to run, don't walk, to the store to get it. I paid $125+ for my two most recent F50/1.7's and that was before the K10D phenomenon pushed the prices of K-mounts up. I currently own 3 copies of this lens and 5 have passed thru my muddy paws in the last 10 years. None of them were bad.

Wish I could be there--we lived in Cedar Park for 5 years. Loved it, but I can't believe how the place is growing...

There is a Central Texas Pentaxians group on this site and Matthew Roberts is the caretaker. Also, get Jim (aka Rupert60) over on DPR. Last time I was down, he and I met up at Coopers BBQ in Llano and drove the Willow City loop.

For better or worse, I'll be traveling the various continents from now until the Sooners whip the Shorthorns again this fall.

I went to Colonial Photo in July 2006, but they didn't have Pentax represented very well. I asked one of the counter guys where the Pentax digital stuff was. He pulled out a dusty 67 from behind the counter with a smirk. I paid the $12 for my one item and left.

I have that same lens and it AFs just fine on my K10D and *ist DS. In fact, mine is for sale in the marketplace for that same price.

My guess is the like the others, you had the aperture ring off the A position. FWIW, you should go into the custom menu and turn on the setting that allows you to use lenses without an A position.

Woot Off!!!!!
Posted By ericc

The site is down at the moment. Some times that happens on busy days (i.e. during a woot off).

The thing about woot is they have very irreverent ad copy and they make it seem like they don't want to sell stuff. Most of the stuff they have, they have reasonable prices. Other times, it's not any better than amazon. A lot of LCDs, in-focus projectors, and iRobot vacuums. They have a loyal following of goofball posters who populate the forums with their own language.

Occasionally, they sell a "bag of crap" (BOC) for $1 and you get something from their warehouse. Usually they sell out their BOCs in a few minutes. My wife has bought a couple of these and we now have mousepads for life and a screaming monkey that drives the dog nuts. Yee haw. One guy claims they sent him an LCD TV in his BOC, but it's unsubstantiated. I've bought a couple of things from them, but I go weeks without checking what the daily woot is.

It's an interesting social phenomenon, but I'm not sure how relevant it is. However, I see the word itself being used more often, so maybe it is relevant...
