Afternoon walk in Trondheim

Filed under: 28mm Pentax,PAW 2009,Pentax *ist DL,Photography — at 10:54 am

The days are getting shorter in the north. Walking back to the hotel in the afternoon, I saw the light …

I saw the light

I’ve gotten tired of cameras … equipment-wise, not imaging. So I’ve decided to use my daughter’s rejected Pentax digital (*ist DL). It’s simple, small, can use a fixed focal-length lens from the film days (a small, 28mm) and it has manual settings.


  1. Go for it! (I secretly enjoyed making some clicks with my wife’s new digital camera, but I still like the Big Noise: )

    best, etc

  2. Hi Bill,

    You know, just yesterday, after putting this up, I was in Flickr and looked up your page. I saw some “recent activity” in one of the Rollei galleries. The Rolleicord V fits into this little niche I’m working in too. I use a hand-held meter with the Pentax anyway and the Rolleicord isn’t much bigger.

    But … I recently bought an Apple laptop. I don’t have the whole work-chain set up (read: scanner). Just found out yesterday, after posting this, how to get the Apple screen to look the same way (gamma-wise) as all the other screens in the world. I’ve had the laptop a few months now. Rather than becoming more and more of an Apple fan, I’ve been getting more and more fed up with it. I would have tossed it a couple of weeks ago but they have at least introduced a terminal window now so that you can get simple things done (like changing the names of folders etc). The lack of a right-hand mouse button is really a design flaw.
