Infinity, Zits, and Purring #1

06-12-18

After attaching my new (£15.00) 37mm Mir lens to the Canon 500n/Rebel G and half  pressing the shutter button the batteries immediately expired, and I didn’t have any spares. So I dug out my M42 to PK adaptor and decided to give the Pentax Super A an outing. The Pentax is in really good condition apart from the viewfinder which at some time in its life has had water ingress which has left staining on the focusing screen. Loaded it up with Kodak TriX and set off reasonably early to the Arboretum, the Sun was out and coming in at a low winter angle. After a couple of shots I realised the back of the lens caught the mirror if it was focused at anything approaching Infinity, fortunately I had packed an Helios 44-M – 58mm lens, which I used for the rest of the frames.

After the above 2 shots I switched to the Helios lens.
