Pinch and a punch for the first of the month and loads of pictures

Here are the referral stats (where people come from on the net to get to this site) for the last month.

With my problems at the moment it’s just the first 60, the figurers mean the following:
Source/Medium Visits Pages/Visit Avg. Time on Site % New Visits Bounce Rate.

So the best I can get to a chart of local blog popularity.

The picture above is of grains of sand on Kingsgate beach, click on the picture to make it bigger, click on the link http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/blogpicts3/id31.htm for a few others from yesterday evening’s picnic there, I think I took a few hundred more and will put them up in the fullness of time.

here are the rest of yesterdays picts

  6. Don I got the camera about 2 years ago it’s a Pentax digital slr so all of my old pentax equipment some of it 40 years old fits it.

    The only problem is that when you change lenses and I use about 6 different ones every day, dirt gets in and I am rather lazy about cleaning it.

    I also often use it in manual mode and guess the shutter speed and aperture.

    I often use very wide-angle lenses and mirror lenses hence some very strange effects.

  7. > it’s a Pentax digital slr

    [ A "Pentax *ist DL" according to information in your JPEG files :-) ]

    How well do the old lenses work with the digital camera Michael ?

    I'm in a similar position of having a collection of old pentax kit (KA mount, I believe), and was wondering how well the old lenses might work with a new Pentax digital SLR. Does the metering still work ok with the old lenses ?

  8. Gerald the pictures linked to this post used:

    A 500 mm fixed F8 pentax screw mirror lens I would guess it is about 55 years old (you can get a little bayonet conversion ring) most were taken hand held. The automatic metering works fairly well however I usually set it on manual and guess.

    An 80 210 bayonet pentax zoom about 30 years old the camera reads the aperture from the lens fine but you have to focus it manually.

    I used a mixture of auto manual guess and a goffen light meter which I think is over 50 years old.

    A modern fully auto 18 55 mm auto focus metering all work on total auto if you want. I also used a super wide fish eye attachment on this lens and it still works in full auto mode.

    For a few of the shots I used various other cameras I had with me but the pentax is my main preference as for how well it meters about the same as a conventional roll film pentax.

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.
