    The camera is back again at its starting point. I had hoped to use it at the 2016 NADA show but just didn't have the time. I'd like to start the list again on who would like to try the camera. Shout out here if you want to have some fun with it and and we begin again once we have a decent list. In the meantime I may change up the peripheral sent with it. Maybe a different lens and flash set up. Got to go thru my bag of tricks.

    Anyone who received it before is welcome to have a second round.


    thanks,

    Still interested, but may be moving back to the us in the fall, so timing will be key. Hopefully it is an early fall so I can catch the colors which are stunning here.

    Hello all,

    I am considering restarting this Camera Journey. I had the camera up for sale here but never sold it and decided to hold it a bit. The First Journey was alot of Fun and gave many members a chance to play around with a truly iconic Digital SLR,Pentax Digital SLR. ..*ist DS .. 6 megapixel camera Its old by today's standards, some would say obsolete (ridiculous!) but really takes amazing pics. The Camera came out in 2004 so it is 14 years old! I think members that took up the challenge and used it really were surprised by what such old tech could accomplish. The colors are amazing for such an old sensor. I believe I have all the original gear still, though I may swap out the flash. To make it worth while we need a good list of interested members that can take the camera, try it out a week and pass it along to someone else. There is no cost to do this except the shipping costs ... It would be $20 USPS Priority Flat rate (with Insurance )in the USA. Canada and international is welcome also but we have to figure out the best shipping options there..

    My reason for doing this again is because we have many new members now that might be interested.Its been 2 years since the last round. Those that got this camera in the past can participate again if they want. The nice thing about this camera is that it really is easy to use. If you are technologically challenged and that has been a reason why you never got a digital SLR camera, This camera will not intimidate you. Its literally fun to use with easy settings and yet it takes amazing images..

    Pentax Digital SLR. ..Its a *ist DS .. 6 megapixel camera. Most camera out there now are 15-30 megapixals...sweet, yes! but not needed to have fun and take great images...

    Look at the pics in the thread and also Check these out...

    Yes thats right, this 14 year old tech can do something like this! Wanna Try it out? C'mon you know you do!

    Definitely NOT a camera person, but I really enjoyed flipping through the previous pages. Seems like people really enjoyed it and got to test drive a camera for cheap.

    Bummer, looks like the groups not up for a challenge right now. Probably intimidated by the sheer awesomeness of the pics members took last round. I understand that fear of failure is very real for some.

    Oh well... seemed like a good idea to bring out the camera again. Had a thought to send it out with flash triggers this time to let people play around with flash shots like this...http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...he-Challengers

    Not every idea can be a a good one though...some .are great .some not so great.I guess this was a not so great one.

    No worries though.I think instead I will start a thread just of pics this camera takes. Show you all what you are missing.

    Since we aren't ready to send the camera out again, I thought I would post pics as I take with them here, keep the interest up in case we can get a list going. I am very fond of this old camera. For its age and limited functionality its pretty darn good. The pics I am taking are with the same camera from the original journey and the same basic kit lens. The flash is different than the nissen Flash we sent last time.I am using a more basic manual flash. A pentax AF200T flash.

    I spent some time around the fishroom today... These are quick shots after a full water change and cleaning.. I could clean these up but these are minimally processed shots. Cropped as needed, maybe sharpened a little and color corrected. I think the camera still has a lot of life in it. What do you think?
