  • We all make mistakes.  In this instance, I guess the question is, when is it a mistake and when is it a result the photographer was satisfied with?   This is art, isn't it?
  • My favorite image of all that I've taken is equally soft.   An image can leave a variety of impressions and being tack sharp is not a requirement for many of them.
  • In that case, why did they say it didn't live up to expectations?   Surely, they must expect it to operate slower in more challenging situations, unless there are other high speed cameras that ...
  • Replied in K-50 or K-5 II
    Having recently made this same decision, I went with the K-50 because I really wanted the Focus Peaking feature and the better video.   You should look at the difference in features and choose the ...
  • I didn't say "better".  I said I preferred it and that it was faster and less complicated to implement. For me, not at all.  I completely understand how another can have a different opinion and I ...
  • This is very easy with the front e-dial.  It would take about 1 second.  The whole process is much faster than using the compare feature to get both up on the screen at the same time.  I not only ...
  • Yes, that is the page where it describes how to enlarge an image and rotate through them quickly.  In fact, I discovered this without reading the manual.  It was very intuitive and simple to ...
  • I grabbed my K-R, since I had never used this feature.  After going through it, I prefer how it works with the K-50.   When checking for focus (or anything else) I don't need them side by side to ...
  • ...unless it is something different from what I'm thinking. It's not called "compare" in the manual, but is described as an option when viewing a magnified image during playback.  I can definitely ...
  • I picked up a cheapo on ebay just to try one out and it worked great.  I couldn't tell you which one it is, since they all look about the same.  When using it, I tend to use my thumb to push the ...
  • I use my k-01 with a wrist strap.  They were made for each other and it's my favorite shooting set-up for feel, control and balance.  I also have a k-50 and always choose the k01 when doing ...
  • The biggest difference is in the reaction you get from people.  When shooting with my white model, a lot more people would ask what kind of camera I it is.  In addition, the k01 doesn't look like ...
  • Ding...Ding,  we have a winner!
  • Could be.  The readout was very small for my old eyes.  All I can say for sure is that in person, the difference is substantial.
  • Now that is my kind of slide duplicator.  Not something I would ever want to spend a lot of money on, and you didn't!
  • I think you're right on the sample variability.  My k-50 seems somewhat loud.  My daughter's k3 is downright near silent in comparison.   I would guess that the k-50/k-30 should be about the same ...
  • For the most part, people here seem to be rather supportive of most people's work.  I think it's only a select few who have a point to prove that put down other's photos. Personally, I think you ...
  • Ah, that's why I like it so much.  The 1860s era is really attractive to me.
  • What's less in one person's eyes, is more in another's.  Processing aside, if the photos are liked and express what the photographer wanted, then I think it's great. Are we simply recording facts ...
  • I got a wrist strap for mine.  It did wonders for the camera and was dirt cheap.
