Gordon's "Umbrella Lady" picture taken with the K-7
We're planning to post the third and final installment of the Pentax K-7 review by Gordon Lewis either tonight or tomorrow.
In a related matter, I want to alert you to a plot that's a-planning. There was a great deal of positive response to the picture of Gordon's that we've informally dubbed "The Umbrella Lady," from Part I of the review. So much so that Gordon has agreed to do a TOP print offer. We're trying to announce it within the next week or two—basically as soon as we can work out all the details and he can get the master prints made at his preferred custom lab.
As usual, we'll take orders only during a short window of time—five days this time—and then the prints will all be made in one run to fulfill however the orders. This enables us to sell prints for radically lower prices than would be possible in a traditional gallery setting, where the prints are sold one at a time and the prices have to be many times higher—it'll be a lot closer to $80 than $800. However, it means you have to be on the lookout, because once the window closes, that's it.
At least one of Gordon's prints—the umbrella lady—will serve double duty as a Pentax K-7 sample. With my didactic side showing, I might add that having a print of a picture that's been featured on the website is a good way of "calibrating" your sense of the difference between looking at a real print vs. a small online JPEG. I'm just sayin'.
More anon; stay tuned.
