  • Replied in k-01 or k-r?
    I agree with Brandrix.  I have had pentax bodies k10d,20d,k5.k01,k30 and k5iis which is my current camera.  I can say that out of those the best value body was the k30.  I originally got it as a ...
  • Replied in Bees
    Verrry nice.  I do not like bees.  Generally if one enters a room I want to leave it, in a hurry but when I have a camera I just cannot resist shooting them err I mean photographing them of ...
  • The first image I might have put down to pf but after looking at the second I doubt it. If you are sure it is the body.  You could try the K30 it produces excellent images.  I had one and saw a ...
  • Thanks for all the replies.  Camera not faulty.  Sigh of relief.  I will follow the advice re settings.  Other than battery life no complaints.
  • I just got the dp2 merrill and today I used 3 batteries to get 139 images.  Is this normal?
  • Thanks.  0 is too sharp.  Wow!  I must remember to adjust the settings.
  • Thanks for the quick reply.  I used your settings for my first test shots yesterday.  Haven't yet got around to processing them yet.  I will use ssp for wb, recovery of blacks and whites and then ...
  • I have just got a dp2 merrill.  Can anyone give any good tips for camera settings to get the best out of this camera?  I shoot raw.

  • Well I in their video tutorials they make a point of stressing that noise reduction should be the first thing done with there Denoise software. But surely basic adjustments should be done like ...
  • Created questions Noise reduction in workflow
    I recently got lightroom 5.3 and Topaz plugins including denoise. I have just read that Topaz recommds noise removal should be done before any other adjustments. In the past I learned that ...
  • Haven't posted anything on here for a while but here are some taken this weekend at a local park.  I do not have a clue as to what kind of flower they are.
  • Thanks for looking.  I considered the 250 but as I intended to use a focal length of 135mm others suggested that 250 would have such a shallow depth of field it would be too difficult to focus ...
  • Created discussions k135+Raynox 150 - flowers
    Seems like a pretty good fit.
  • I do not think so.  Lovely images and rendering by the k3.  I was lucky enough to capture these two.  The first is 3 gulls taking off at the same time and in the other image it looks like the huge ...
  • Thanks for looking.  This is just about the only keeper of the day. Shame I didn't get the timing right to get the wing tips in the frame.
  • Created discussions Tombi at the beach
    Last weekend I took my daughter to the beach in Enoshima, Japan and from a previous visit I new that there would be an opportunity to shoot a bird known as Tombi in Japan which translates to ...
  • Thanks for looking.  I agree with the cropping.  I quite like the 3rd one actually.  I have just viewed it with and think it might work better cropped to landscape.
  • Thanks for looking.  I have Lightroom 3.6 and have recently found a free plugin called Perfect effects4 so I am experimenting with the layers in that.  The combination of HDR natural plus amazing ...
  • Created discussions Dragons overdone?
    I have tried different pp with these images.   Overdone?
