My name is Mikel, 27 year old art photography student at University,
had a couple of technical questions and was hoping i could score a little insight on the forum here:
1. does anybody know where a guy could dig up wider angle (wider than normal 50mm) lens for a RICOH XR-2s 35mm SLR? right now there is a smc pentax - m 1:17 50mm and I am looking for something wide for surf photography - camera housing has to be built with the lens on the camera that i would use the most and a wider angle is what i am after.
2. i have a color head (saunders lpl 67OO) THAT i have been using about a year - the other day she shut down, i think, not sure, that i left the enlarger on overnight, anyway, i replaced the bulb with a freshy and it still gets no power, used multiple plug in outlets and timers, still no luck, where can i take it in the metro seattle/vancouver area to have it looked at and more importantly is it financially astute to do so? should i just get another one? i paid 250 for the machine and really came to love it.
peas and tanks.
