March arrived quickly and stayed for a bit longer than how the last few months felt; I enjoyed that. I am also kind of glad to see it go, too, because we have some really awesome plans lined up for the next three months, starting with a week-long trip to Bali in the middle of April. I’m still not completely sure if I want to pack the LC-A+ or the Ultra Wide and Slim but I’ll definitely be bringing my new baby, the Pentax K1000.
I’ve had a few emails asking how I compare the Pentax K1000 to the Canon FTb – although I am not entirely ready to say that I won’t change my mind but the Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7 lens really does produce the kind of muted saturation I’ve always tried to achieve with the Canon (FD 50mm f/1.8). Also, I find it sharper than my Canon lens but that could just be a difference in condition, they are after all second-hand lenses. Camera-wise, they basically work exactly the same way (both very, very easy to pick, that’s for sure) except that the mechanics of the FTb feels smoother and generally more well-made. However, the K1000 is a little bit smaller, which is a great size for girls.
I usually prefer to post pictures chronologically but decided to throw some made by the K1000 into the mix – I’m just still really stoked about the fresh point of view using a new camera gives and wanted to share some thoughts. I can’t wait for this camera to go to Bali with me! I’ve shot six rolls on it so far but definitely need a few more before deciding if it’s going to be my new go-to camera.
