  • Well my ND4 has arrived and as you say, solves the problem. I did manage to get the camera to go to 1200 in A mode - the instruction book definitley says that all speeds are available in this ...
  • Glad it is not just me that has this problem. I have got an ND 4 filter on order, in the meantime I will just use manual if I need to shoot wide open in bright light Thanks for your commnets on the ...
  • My first posting here in the Fujifilm Forum, as a result of a couple of months with a new (second-hand) X20 First of all let me say how impressed I am by the X20. I bought this camera to tale with ...
  • It is an orchid, the Common Spotted Orchid , Dactylorhiza Fuchsii, I think - have you any pictures of the leaves??
  • Some very nice shots, especially some of the more distant cityscapes. I am going to Prague next month and have just  purchased an X20 especially for the trip, as I don't want to lug my DSLR and ...
  • Replied in My reasons
    25 shot RAW buffer
  • I sold my 55-300 (original) to get the WR version. IQ wise, can't see a great deal of difference, the WR seems to have slightly higher contrast, particularly at the long end, which is probably the ...
  • As covered elsewhere in the replies to this post, a number of factors have combined to give your blurry photo 1) Use of shutter button directly - means SR not off, plus likely movement of camera as ...
  • Replied in Tulip
    From my garden yesterday. K5 and Tamron 70-200 f2.8
  • Ordered one last night, still a few available and with free delivery!
  • Replied in Chaenomeles Taken with my K5 nand the Tamron 70-200 f2.8
  • New Alresford, Hampshire
  • The 55 f1.8 is a lovely lens, one of my favourites on APS-C. Good to see it still acquits itself well on a modern full-frame camera
  • The WR on the 18-135 will come in very useful on Dartmoor (if your nom-de-plume reflects your actual location!) I have this lens and it suits my purposes very well, on the K5 I have had no real ...
  • Ron, your services to the  Pentax compatible long lens fraternity should be more widely recognised. However, I do wonder what sort of looks you get when you appear on the streets of your home town ...
  • For a long time I kept the 55-300 in my bag because, well sometimes you need a long lens, my main telezoom is the Sigma 50-150 f2.8, a great lens but the Pentax gave me reach at OK IQ in a compact ...
  • I must admit I am surprised by the small size of the buffers in most other cameras compared to the k5/k3 family. I am not one to want/need reallyhigh FPS, but I do do a lot of shooting in bursts, ...
  • I have the 55-300WR and the Tamron 70-200, and have used both on the K5 The 70-200 is better (sharper,more contrast) down to at least F8 imho Of course the 55-300WR is, well, weater resistance and ...
  • Well the 40mm XS is one of the simplest of Pentax lenses, I doubt whether a DC or SDM motor would be tolerant of the washing machine treatment. Also of course, other damage may only become ...
  • The use of the EVF to provide a focus peaking view on the X-T1 is intriguing, and a welcome demonstration of how an EVF can do things an OVF can't. I use a Pentax K30 and a K5, the K30 Has focus ...
