About me:

To learn the art of photography from real photographers.
This added Sept 2014 or 8 years after that first sentance. I have learned a lot. Don't know all, but I also like helping others as I can. Its a community.

The ratings I give to my gear. They are based on my IMO of performance/features/subjective traits (e.g. rich color) to price.

  • Very nice. Such narrow DOF allowing eyes sharp and background buttery smooth. ISO80 and 1/60 lots of light through that lens.
  • In many cases the lens element is constructed with acrylic bonding for the spherical side this allows cheaper mass production. The the bonding process is used in less expensive lens and expensive ...
  • I don't think its dust either. I like the pics you are taking. The car pic shows really nice DR. It looks impossible to get that much detail cleanly at that light level, but it does!
  • Again superb. I did note this time that you used nearly all (if not all) of the DR the K-3II has. You did not clip the highlights. Speaking really of the giant clock. Then you go down under the ...
  • Absolutely stunning and from a Pentax APC body! Just look at my record. I am a hard core Pentax fan. I have the K20D and K-5 and decent lens. But nothing that would take a picture like that. How ...
  • Commented on photo Portraiture in the Adults - posed challenge

    When I was looking before reading comments all I saw was a very beautiful picture of a women. Most guys (including me) prefer (most, not all) women with make up on. So the comments of too much this...

  • I hope all note you basically fixed your problem. I understand what you were looking for to repair it. I understand you did not find it. But how did it get fixed? Something changed when you did ...
  • You know whats really crazy. All Pentax has to do is make the firmware of its cameras able to use screw drive with the older SDM lens. The Pentax K10D with the right firmware could use screw ...
  • Yes, 100% yes! Storage or non-use will some how make SDM not work. Its been reported here dozens of times at the least. You have to slowly bring them back to life, I have read? I had this happen to ...
  • Have to comment on a great picture. Very nice to look at.
  • I like the board. I have one I made by reading an artical how to do it. Over the years I have used it to set up BF/FF to test lens. I am always changing what's on it. Sounds like your a real ...
  • Really nice pictures. Looks like a wonderful place to visit with or without a camera. I do find the DA18-55mm WR and DA50-200mm WR to be good lens. Producing pictures that are nice, Pentax color, ...
  • You say - "But as you see, there is no claim that they compensate for Z-axis. But it says that the sensor can move in X, Y and roll. As I said this is a misunderstanding, and it seems to be you ...
  • All you have to do is hit thread view. But I stopped using quote the post above? Take a look?
  • "Who ever claimed that K20D could compensate for z-axis shake? Pentax have never claimed this. This sound like someone misunderstanding the info from Pentax." Is this proof enough. Even Pentax USA ...
  • The Patent speaks in terms of axis. There are only 3 axis in a 2D plane according to the rule of physics x,y,z are the common terms. So the 5 axis is not possible is not possible to write in a ...
  • Of course the Pentax system can work during video. I believe it must be the noise. You can bet Pentax hears you and should correct the problem for you. At least give people the option. Possible a ...
  • Whoo I am getting tired of scrolling so long. Most of the replies where on a smartphone and that was some serious scrolling. I guess I have to agree to dis-agree. I really believe my position. And ...
  • Please show me where Olympus has 5 , or sony has 5 gyros and why. If you move down in a linear motion no compensation is needed only if one side of the body tilts down faster than the other more ...
