A walk with the Pentax MV and 40mm lens

I loved the Pentax MV series from the moment that I got one in my hands back in 1979! And when I got the chance a few years back to buy one I hesitated not one second. And it didn’t end there, every time I saw one and the price was right, I bought it. So I own several now. The MV and the MV1. I like the simplicity and the design, small and ‘pro’ black 🙂

Recently I took one of them for a few photowalks paired with the Pentax 40mm pancake lens. Here a few samples of the roll.

I photographed during this holiday with the F50 and was very happy with it. But years passed by and it was only in 2018(!) that I picked up the F50 again. These are a few examples of the film I did shoot during 2018 – 2019… Continue reading “A roll in a Nikon F50 starting in 2018, ending in 2019”

First roll with my Leica M4-2

After many books, websites, blogs and museum visits I wanted to be a credited and famous photographer. And a Leica is the camera for the ‘real’ photographer so I bought a very nice Leica M4-2. This is the first and test roll I shot with the M4-2. Guessing the light conditions is not so hard and using my Voigtlander 35mm thread lens with a adapter on the Leica worked great!

On my way with the Olympus Pen EE-2

Bought a old Olympus Pen EE-2 and took it with me at walks and some military events. It performs as new. It handles all kind of light easy and I like the grainy images… Continue reading “On my way with the Olympus Pen EE-2”
