  • Will ship worldwide. Pristine condition.  Good as new. Shutter count of only 5547. Original owner. Photos are of the actual item.  More photos available upon request. Includes camera, strap, ...
  • Just replied to your PM. Anyhow, still happy with the RFN-4s.  Like I said, I wish my Pentax cameras had a Nikon 10pin port so I can use the RFN-4s on my Pentax K-5.
  • I've been itching to do the same ...  But the K5 is still so good.  Actually, quite hard to believe how much the price has come down on K5 & K5II.
  • Yup.  Though I've not had K-50, I've had a fair number of Pentax DSLRs.  None of them trigger the flash when the shutter speed is over (faster) than 1/180s. I never understood why Pentax did that. ...
  • Ditto. Did the same thing.  Then, thought about buying FA35 again, but with FA31 already in the bag and other lenses to buy, couldn't come around to getting FA35.  But liked it while I had it.
  • Like anything else, with tripods, you get what you pay for ... generally.  For some people, quality is not that important because they may either not appreciate it or have no need for it.  But ...
  • Replied in 645D vs D800
    I think I agree with this sentiment ... both Roger's and petreluk's. While I think 645D's price is more reasonable given that of other MF cameras, when I thought about it, there isn't that many ...
  • Added 2 photos to their gallery

  • I agree with malch.  That's basically what I do also.  I get a regular laptop and then get Samsung SSDs separately.  Easy upgrade.  Manufacturers also over charge for additional RAM also.  So, I ...
  • Replied in I love it!
    Hoping to climb that mountain one of these days ...
  • It doesn't seem like Arca Swiss B2 allows precise movements like a geared head.  But KPS T5 does so along two separate axis like a geared head. It says KPS T5 is compatible with Arca Swiss plates, ...
  • I have K-5, K-01, and Canon G1 X.  I thought G1X would be my "vacation" camera ... but it turns out that K-01 is the one I use a LOT more often.  It's by far the most used camera. Image quality is ...
  • Metz flash is good.  But as you noticed, a bit on the expensive side. I've had Sigma, Pentax, and Metz flash before.  Metz and Pentax appeared to have been very well made. Not sure if the guide ...
  • Wow! This certainly poses a significant dilemma!  Ugh! What to do?!?
  • Searching for geared ball head on Amazon came up with this. ...
  • Hey Folks, Looking for some suggestions on a smaller camera for mainly video purpose.  Here are some of the things I'm looking for. 1.  Does not need to be Pentax.  But something small.  But not ...
