I recently updated my website,, with some new photos and projects. One of the projects, which was really fun to complete, is called "Lianna's Voice." The entire project was shot with an old Spotmatic on tri-x. I'd love to hear what you guys think of the site and the project. There is also a new blog accessible directly at I also think the site might be getting a bit large, so feel free to let me know if there is anything you think doesn't fit or is just bad. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello, I'm Cameron Knight. I finding it really hard to get good information about pentax screwmount cameras and lenses, so I thought I'd try here. I do shoot for a living, but for personal projects I use a pentax spotmatic sp and tri-x. You can see my work at I look forward to learning more about my film kit.

Split Screen/Rangerfinder M42

I was wondering if Pentax made a M42 screwmount body with a split screen in the middle of the focusing screen. The little rangefinder split would really help me feel more sure about my focusing. Right now, I have a matte screen, and I don't think my Spotmatic SP has interchangable screens. Just wondering if there was another model that did.

24/3.5 Super Tak vs. 24/2.8 Sigma

Alright, I have two, count 'em, two 24mm M42 lenses. As much as I love having extra gear lying around, I see the redundancy in my purchases. One is the Super-Takumar 24mm/3.5 and is in great condition, the other is Sigma-XQ Filtermatic Multi-Coated 24mm/2.8. At first glance, it would seem that the Sigma is the way to go. It's faster, it has built in filters, it is also in excellent condition. My screwmount kit is strictly for black and white documentary work, and the Sigma has made it through a project with me already. So, am I missing something? I haven't shot the same scene with the two lenses side by side or anything...should I? Again both these lenses are great, and I hate to give up a Tak when I know how great they are. The Tak is also smaller and the focus is a bit smoother. I don't know. Any help out there?
