October 3rd, 2018.
After yesterday’s pretty fun premiere for ‘The Romanoffs’, today I came crashing down to earth with a thud, with a premiere I hadn’t anticipated going to, which I therefore prepared improperly for, adapted poorly to, and finally have to blame myself for…. for my insane ongoing belief in the possibility that Pentax cameras can be used at major events. Sure, they can… but not really. And not this time.
Here’s how it went down:
And… that was that. I think it’s fairly evident that I hated this event, and the camera I chose to record it on. I dislike blaming my equipment, and I hate that I keep making strategic choices that leave me with the wrong equipment for the wrong event. And I hate walking home and thinking “I should’ve used the f**king GOPRO”… because I probably should have used it, and not the former flagship model of a company that once made decent cameras but certainly are as irrelevant as any trip to a camera store will reassure you.
So, if you’re a friend and see me at a premiere with a Pentax and I can’t provide evidence that I’ve also brought the Nikon, remember to punch me in the face for being a f**king idiot. Thanks.
