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.

  • 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 ...
  • Pentax does compensate for linear movement has three accelerometers or gyros and three Hall sensors. Pentax claims to be able to correct motion in any direction. It automatically detect panning ...
  • You really don't know all about the Pentax system or IS systems. I am saying that with the upmost repect. I have been following this since my first dSLR because it had to have SR. My choice was ...
  • BTW with deep interest I wanted to see how the other systems work. They have covers not allowing a full view. But once I found pics/videos showing how they work I find its not close to the Pentax ...
  • OK, you are a fan of the other systems. No Pentax compensates for 5 axis they just don't stretch the truth as much. Camera shake has always meant tilting the front up/down, Pentax has compensated ...
  • For sure Olympus and Sony are not the same as Pentax system. The two systems appear not to tread on Pentax Patented free floating sensor platter system. Now Olympus and Sony may and do share ...
  • The system is free floating in a two-dimensional plane but something has to hold it in that two-dimensional plane with Pentax they use 3 ball bearings and allow the platter to move around freely ...
  • I agree. why disable a feature that works. Let the user chose how they want to setup the sound. Its kind of silly not to use true Shake Reduction.
