Week 17 – A Journey Begins

This is my girlfriends sister with her very first SLR. She’s been interested in Photography for quite some time now and decided to take the plunge and get herself a second hand Pentax SLR.

I shot film back in high school so was interesting to hold an SLR again (high school was a long time ago for me now). What amazed me about the film lenses is their size and build. The lens attached is a Pentax 50mm f2 and has a filter thread size of only 49mm. This made me laugh since lenses with a 62mm or 67mm filter thread are quite small in this day age so 49mm is tiny. I’m now trying to find a decent but affordable film scanner so that she’ll be able to digitally process her images as well.
