  • Yes, I think you're right.  I shouldn't use the WiFi card when the weather is warm.  It has worked fine up til now, but was in the sun quite a lot yesterday. jm_mac
  • Created discussions Corrupted K3 photos
    Hi All, I took about 30 photos in raw with my K3 today at the pumpkin patch, and two came out like the one below.  All photos were taken in raw; the thumbnails looked okay, but the raw files (and ...
  • You've had amazingly bad luck. Can't recommend whether to stay or go. But to put things into perspective, here is my experience with bodies: Canon: DReb - no problems DReb XT (2x) - no problems ...
  • The subject of the video seemed interesting, but i couldnā€˜t get past the silly full profile camera angle, and the annoying jerky zooming.  I think the video guy was trying for "edgy", but only got ...
  • I have not heard of this issue. Could you explain it in more detail? maybe you did not get any replies because no one is aware of what the issue is.
  • That's why is so tempting for me! I bought a black K3 through one of the Adorama.com packages a few months ago, and it was right about the same price as this special edition one!
  • I wasn't planning on buying a second K3, but man this sure seems tempting... http://sellout.woot.com/offers/pentax-k-3-silver-edition-dslr-camera-body?ref=cnt_dly_wobtn
  • I've seen this photo in a previous post of yours, and its wonderful.  I've always joyed your work, but now that you've shown how you did it in that article, i will have to try it sometime.  Thanks ...
  • Very nice photos! I bought my k3 about a month ago and have yet to put it through its paces. And here you are producing great work as soon as you receive it! Welcome!
  • It looks fine on my Android tablet (ASUS Memo 10 inch pad).  Great website, and wonderful images! As a viewer, I like your small, unobtrusive watermark - but I fear it may be too small to prevent ...
  • For what you are trying to do, yes, green mode would have worked.  I'm not sure what you mean when you say you expect the camera to set the exposure automatically - TAv is a "semi-auto" exposure ...
  • You have to read in between the lines in those reviews. From what I recall of those reviews, the corners are soft at certain focal lengths, but the center is plenty good. Pretty much everyone that ...
  • Why do you say it's tiring to use?  Have you used a sensor-based stabilization system for any length of time and found it tiring?  I use both pretty regularly, and don't find either one "tiring" ...
  • Your Metz worked flawlessly, which is great.  Can you go into more detail about your flash usage?  I am assuming it was on-board use only.  Was it direct or bounced?  PTTL?  What mode did you have ...
  • I used to own a D5100 which is very similar in controls and handling, and I currently own a D7000 in addition to my Pentax equipment. I usually own my DSLRs for about that time as well, maybe ...
  • LOL, this happened to me, before I had my 18-135mm repaired.  Sometimes it would just stop auto focusing, and I would perform a raindance that included switching the camera to manual and back to ...
  • I hope the A6000 works out for you.  I keep looking for a smaller kit to supplement my DSLRs, but haven't found the perfect one yet.  I owned a NEX-5R for a year.  Nice gadget, but the user ...
  • Thanks for all your suggestions - your suggestions prompted more testing and I am now able to get very consistent results with direct flash, in Av and X and M modes, irrespective of distance from ...
  • No, I was not setting the zoom on the flash. The flash was in auto zoom mode (a.zoom). I was referring to the focal length of the the zoom lenses I was using for test. My Metz must be getting data ...
  • Hi Andy, As the resident flash expert here, I was hoping to get some insight from you.  Thanks for the suggestions - although I initially got the same results in "x" setting, ISO = 100, P-ttl first ...
