Pentax Links

Some web sites dealing with Pentax equipment.

Bojidar Dimitrov's Pentax K-Mount Page is a very thorough and detailed source of information about every piece of Pentax K-mount hardware imaginable. The problem is that the information stops at the *ist film camera. Apparently, this site was in jepaordy of being shut down by Mr. Dimitrov, but the hue and cry of his fans has purchased a reprieve. He says he's going to start updating the information and adding new entries, but it'll likely be slow going.

Using The Pentax *ist DS With A Manual Lens

Note: I wrote this a while back, when the *ist DS wasn't three product cycles ago... However, the advice should still apply, even to the K100D, the K110D, the K10D, and the Samsung GX-10. In the case of the K10D and the GX-10, stop-down metering is accomplished with the green button, rather than AE-lock.

The *ist DS is a nifty neeto digital SLR camera made by Pentax.

The Photography Book

This is an online book about photography. It appears here as I write it.

What will happen is that as I learn things, or as I explain them to others, that information will end up here. It will get re-sorted and re-organized as I go along.

Comments will be evaluated and added into the material, and thus it will be a collaborative effort. I'm just the instigator and editor.

Welcome, Mile 23 fans!

I was looking at the referrer logs, and discovered that some people are searching for 'mile 23' on Google, and ending up at your humble 'blogger's web site. Which is fine with me, except that I'm not getting a nickel per visit... :-)

But the point is that I've discovered that there's a mile23.net, which is a promo site for a band called... Mile 23. They have streaming audio on their site, and they're not bad. Not my cuppa, but at least they're competent, ya know?

Anyway. Welcome Mile 23 fans! You're at Mile 23 on the wrong road, but the band is a single click away.
