  • Geez. If this happened to me, I would just be more concerned I received my camera back from the macaque. Sure it would have been great to get some money from this, but I would have chalked it up as...

  • Ahhh, thanks for clearing that up for me guys!

  • The entire county for which I work for, has a contract with Ricoh for their copiers and printers. Great machines, but I prefered Canon. Ricoh offered the best price, so we went from Canon to Ricoh....

  • Picked up an XA in mint condition for $10.00 at a garage sale. The only thing was the A11 flash needed a tall battery. So if the top of the battery had a shorter stem, it wouldn't trigger the...

  • Picked up a K1000 with the 50 mm lens for $5.00 at a thrift store. Great condition too. Sold it on ebay for $83.00!

  • Yeah, that's true. I guess I was expecting a bit more with all this hype that this camera has been given.

  • Do the colors look a bit muted to any of you? Or is it just me? I know Sony color hasn't tested as high as the other brands, but they seem a tad muted to me. I don't know. What do you guys think?

    It is well damped. When I first bought it, my fellow photographers loved how quiet it is. But my girls didn't feel that way. In fact, when I sent in my K5 for cleaning, I had to use my K20, and my...

  • I had a Zenit 12 XP with the same Helios lens. I bought it because the hot shoe of my spotmatic was broken, so I figured the Zenit would work because of the screw mount and it did. I just had to...

  • I ended up finding an Olympus XA at a garage sale for $20.00 back around 1995. I used it for a bit, but by that time, my main Olympus compact was the Stylus. Another one that I loved. My first...

    Thanks for the links. I'll be sure to check it out.

    Trust me, I LOVED the quiet shutter of my K5, until my then top swimsuit model at the time brought it to my attention. I never realized how...

    How is the shutter noise on the KP? Oddly one of the complaints I received from all my models was that they didn't like the K5 because they couldn't hear the shutter. They preferred the sound of...

    I should have said the focus ability in low light. I see that it tests well with high ISO. That is great, but the problem I've had in the past was focus ability in low light. The K5 was a huge...

    I was curious about low light performance. Was this mentioned in the review or did I miss it? I usually photograph swimsuit models, so I'm not concerned too much about the autofocus tracking,...

  • My first one that my parents let me take to science camp in 6th grade and use from then on? The Olympus XA-2. I LOVED that camera!
