Pentax Spotmatic SP

Pentax Spotmatic SP
I bought an old (1964–76) Pentax Spotmatic camera on Yahoo Auction (ヤフオク). It was pretty cheap, so I wasn`t surprised to find that the internal light meter didn`t work. However, I could fix it. Yay.

I don`t have film yet, so I haven`t taken any photos yet. Actually, I`m not sure how to use this kind of camera yet; I`ve never used one. I will watch some Youtube videos to find out (= learn). Also, the lens is a bit (= a little) dirty inside, which is a common problem in old camera lenses. To clean it, I need to buy some ethanol & purified water, so I haven`t cleaned it yet.

So, I`m not ready to take photos yet, but after I take some, I`ll show you the results.

Grammar
- I`m not sleepy/hungry yet: まだ眠くない / お腹空いていない
- I don`t have/know yet: まだ持ってない / 知らない
- I haven`t decided/finished yet: まだ決めていない / 終わっていない
- I`ve never used...: 使った事がない
- "I`ve never...yet": WRONG

Old Chisel

Old Chisel
I found an old chisel at the site of a demolished building. It looked in bad shape (= condition) but I took it home, washed it, sandpapered off the rust, spray-painted the metal parts, & put varnish (ニス) on the wooden part.

It looks pretty good & it works well. I`m glad I picked it up.

Vocabulary
ニス is not English, but it comes from the English word 'varnish': バーニッシュ --> ワニス --> ニス

They Did It Their Way

They Did It Their Way
I gave each of my kids a model airplane to make during their summer holidays. I let them choose their own colour schemes.

The one on the right is German, the other two are Japanese. What do you think? Which one do you like best?

Pronunciation:
- scheme: 「スキーム」 (「シェーマ」 is German)
- theme: 「THィーム」 theme park: 「THィームパーク 」(「テーマ」is German)
