Playing with a new toy.
The fact that I was able to take that shot of the glass at 1/10”, on a 135mm lens, and have it come out that clear and free of motion blur, is a real testament to how effective the K-30’s in-body shake reduction is. Just another reason I don’t regret my switch to Pentax: image stabilization even on lenses from the 1970s.
It’s too clunky and slow-focusing (they didn’t use very good lubricants in 1970s East Germany) for cosplay shoots or birding, but I may be able to find uses for it elsewhere. Maybe long walkways that would look good with perspective compression, or slow-moving animals at the zoo?

(but it seems like I have powers in making chairs disappear.)
…I am sorry. I’m just not as active in this fandom as I used to be. I still love the girls though.

That moment of anxiety when you are about to use a word you learned in books but have never said out loud and have no idea how to pronounce it oh god what if I say it wrong everyone will know I am a fool
I love how “Hermione” is both a person who would do this and an example in action.
(Edit: whoops, misread that as “Equisol” b/c reblogged from Rydia.)
