The Impressive Pentax p3n

I was given the Pentax p3n as a gift from a friend. I love my Minolta X700, so it was going to take a lot of convincing for me to let another SLR into my life. I decided to shoot one roll with it, just one roll to see how the photos turned out. I was blown away by the crisp clear results that this camera produces.

This camera has a few cool features. First of all you don’t have to set the ISO or ASA speed, it does that for you based on your film cartridges coding. There is also a very accurate automatic setting on the lens and dial, if you decide to use it, rest assured the camera is doing most all of the work for you.

The best way to test a new camera is to just take it somewhere, anywhere, and take a lot of photos of different subjects and content so that you can get a good idea of the kinds of photos that it takes. For example, food, your setting, people, etc. I waited in anticipation to see the photos that this seemingly standard SLR camera took.

As you can see from the photos, this camera is fantastic! I was just shocked by how simple it was to use and how professional the results are. This is a cheap and affordable SLR by most standards if you can get one secondhand. I highly recommend this SLR for anyone interested in taking crisp clear photos with simplicity in using the camera itself.

Stick Around For The Unknown

TODAY is the LAST day of the summer program that I have been working with. I can’t say that I have too many “brilliant” photos from this summer, but then again, that all depends on your definition of the word. I have my car loaded up and am ready to go tonight after the day’s events. There are a few people that I will miss from the program and the students that I got the opportunity to work with were great. Take a look at these photos and get a sense of the mood of the program for me, it was mostly relaxing and enjoyable, save a few of the employees creating drama. Most of these were taken with my little buddy, the Olympus XA, using Lomography Color Negative 400 ISO film.

Alas, I must bid you au revoir. I am excited to be going back home to spend the last few weeks of summer at my new job as the editor of my colleges newspaper. I don’t doubt that it will be lots of work, but what worth doing isn’t?

Goodbye summer program, hello to the unknown.

Fuji Natura Classica First Test

This was my first time using the Fuji Natura Classica. I have heard so much about it’s brilliant indoor photo qualities, but my worst shots were indoors. I used 1600 ISO Superia film. The outdoor shots were brilliant though.

I am pleased for the most part, I just wish that the indoor shots were a bit better since that was supposed to be a feature of this camera. Also I loaded some 800 ISO film into the camera today, and it did not recognize it and put it in NP mode, it’s supposed to put 800 ISO film and up in NP mode automatically.
