  • At canonpricewatch.com, the "street price " of a 6d and 24-70 2.8 is about $3000. That would include a pixma pro 100 printer. Not a bad deal.
  • Dan, I meant nail in the coffin for my decision to buy another brand. Not for the Pentax brand which, I believe, will continue to make fine crop sensor cameras and excellent primes. I can see ...
  • Right you are, Slam. Difficult to buy something other than Pentax after all these years. The main reason I chose Canon was because I absolutely love the skin tones that come out of their cameras. ...
  • Pixelsmithy, I think you misunderstood the purpose of my post. It was no knock on Pentax gear. As I said I have used Pentax for 50 years and am keeping my stuff. The "nail in the coffin" is the ...

    I am a 50 year Pentax user with the following dilemma. I'm approaching a "big" birthday and want to update my equipment. I have been waiting for a Pentax FF, primarily so I can use my beloved 77 ...

    at Kensington Metropark, outside Detroit.
  • If I understand your question correctly, yes, you can change any or all categories that you want. Fiddle with the sharpening, color, etc.  Then click preset. Click Save. Give it a name. You can ...
  • I really like PN but the "peachy" skin does come into play sometimes. My normal, opening preset has a -15 for both red and orange (under the color enhancement category). That is similar to the ...
  • I have the same problem with photo ninja and blue socks. What happens, I think, is when PJ corrects blown out skies, it changes the sky from white to blue. Unfortunately it changes most whites in ...

    from Ludington, Michigan to Manitowoc, Wisconsin
  • This one is not only lonely, it's completely nonfunctional. The legs have been swallowed up by the sand dunes.
  • The plastic fantastic 35 2.4 wide open is correct. ISO 1600, although looking at the metadata, I could have lowered it for a few shots. Not a museum for children. {I also didn't post the picture of ...
  • Pretty cool stuff. I didn't post the picture of the 5 pound bladder stone. You're welcome. Dramatized skeleton Death Mask of Napoleon. Amputation tools. Looks like a carpenter's tool kit. Vesalius. ...
  • Thanks, Tom. I'm a bit prejudiced, but I think my grandkids are very, very cute. BTW I did have to micro-adjust my 50 1.8 to +2 ( I can't remember if that is front focusing or back focusing). The ...
  • If you have the 35 2.4, you'll find out that this lens is similar. Very sharp, very light. As mentioned in this forum many times, this lens is a great bargain. Here are a few recent pictures taken ...
  • Converting Pentax DNG files, most of the time, Photo Ninja does a better job than Lightroom. More mid-tone contrast, much better highlight reduction. Sometimes Lightroom does a little better but ...
