Confused of Malvern's recent activity

  • Hi The flashing F-- indicates that you need to input the focal length of the lens using the rear control knob and as displayed on the rear screen. Then proceed to expose as Brian (apathyman) described.
  • Many thanks for all the very helpful and knowledgeable responses.  Having given it due consideration, I am going to go with the original specification but add an SSD and increase to 16GB RAM
  • Replied in For how much?
    Many thanks for your advice. To clarify, the existing drive with my photos which I was proposing to re-use is an existing, secondary drive that I installed about 18 months ago. Is 8GB RAM sufficient?
  • I 'd wondered about an SSD. Would this be in addition to, or instead of the 1TB HD?
  • Price quoted was £584 inc. VAT
  • Created discussions New Pc - Specification
    My current desktop PC is about 5 years old. It's a 32-bit system with 3GB RAM. I use it for everyday office applications, internet and...most importantly, raw conversion and post processing ...
  • Welcome to the world of Pentax. Another vote for the DA21mm - it's a great lens and spends more time on my camera than anything else. You can get the HD version new for £399 or the older SMC ...
  • If I wanted something smaller, I'd sell the Pentax lenses and buy the new Panasonic DMC-LX100
  • Replied in Boycott them
    No, it's fine to buy them in Canikon mounts - it's the non-existent Pentax ones we need to boycott :-D
  • Replied in Boycott them
    It's a disgrace.  We should boycott those lenses they're not making in Pentax mount ;-)
  • Created discussions Where's 'What the Duck'?
    Initially I found WTD quite annoying but I have grown to like it and look forward the weekly strip.  It's been missing for the last few weeks and to start with I thought someone was just on ...
  • A very nice set of photos but I echo Dave's comment about the lack of shots showing their faces, particularly the Groom. I would prefer #2 if they were facing the camera and #6 if they were walking ...
  • Yes, although I'm not familiar with MeFoto.  Of those two, the Manfrotto looks to be the better in my view - it's lighter and the legs only have 4 sections (which generally equates to it being ...
  • "Rugged", "sturdy" and "lightweight" are not words that really go together, especially at the price you have in mind. I have two tripods - (1) a Manfroto 190 which is both rugged and sturdy but hardly ...
  • Great shots and I really interesting commentary. I've now added the Atacama to the (long) list of places I want to go!
  • Replied in Too late....
    "We are sorry, this item is no longer available" I wonder if they realised they made a mistake?
  • I think these tutorials are excellent http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/learn-photography-concepts.htm
  • The difference between the two packages is essentially either: (1) 50-200 mm weather resistant lens for $646;or (2) 55-300 mm non-WR lens for $746
  • Without seeing the originals, it's impossible to say what is down to camera technique and what is attributable to post processing.  Both photos appear over exposed by about 1 stop to my eye. What ...
  • I don't have either lens but I remembered this thread over on the Pentax SLR forum from about a week ago that I thought you might find interesting http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54127812
