  • Thanks for the response.  I tried yesterday loging in as root and received the same error message. I just created a new user after your email, and tried starting the program again using my email ...
  • The program is Focus 2 and the error message is:  Connection error - please try later.  I have received instruction from Macphun to disable the firewall and Little Snitch but receive the same ...

    I was recently sent an email for a free copy of focus 2 my Macphun with attached serial number. I have tried 2 different copies of the software but could not get it to install.  Macphun suggested ...
  • Created discussions Lightscoop
    I hope someone has used the lightscoop on their pentax camera and could contribute feedback.  I used the Gary Fong unit on an earlier model Panasonic G2 but it still left a shadow indoors, but ...
  • These were shot with the Tamron 18-200 lens on my Pentax K-50.  This lens camera combo really is a good team in my estimation.  Thanks for looking and C&C always welcome. Mike
  • Am I missing something.  I thought that is what the Foveon's sensor does in the Sigma camera's. Three layers in the sensor that only absorb light in red, green and blue. and then combine then to ...
  • Anyone who is wondering how this lens performs I have included two pictures. One is Grandson taken indoors last evening with on camera flash, and the second one is shot from the back yard of house ...
  • Leopold, Great series of skunk cabbage.  We go to Whistler/Pemberton region each May to photograph black bears.  They love the Dandelions and Skunk Cabbage and will be in the lower levels and easy ...
  • Brad, I have sold all of my pentax lens (18-55WR & 50-200WR) as I was just not happy with the results. I tried a number of lens and have ended up with two AF tamron lens. the 28-105 (42-157) and ...
  • Raj, Those two programs are my most used plugins for PS6.  There are other programs that are as effective but for me those two are a simple easy to use and see the visual process at completion. ...
  • Raj, I am attaching the photo.  No changes were made other than Focus Magic and Neat Image. These were done in Photoshop 6 in seperate layers and combined. Mike
  • I really enjoyed #2.  I ran the print though PS6 an applied a layer of Focus Magic and Neat Image to the photo and it removed all the blotches in the sky and sharpened the image without haloes. I ...
  • This is not the asm version of the lens but I sure like the 1st few sample shots on the way home from picking up the lens. the EXIF identifies the lens as the Pentax 28-105 but it is a Tamron ...
  • Sorry folks ignore this post it should have been in pentax forum.  I had too many tabs opened and it the wrong button. It took longer than the 5 min and dpreview would not let me remove it. What ...

  • My very 1st SLR was the Spotmatic in 1964 while stationed in Japan, and it still is my favorite.  The spotmatic replaced my Petri 7s rangefinder camera and I knew I had arrived as a proud owner of ...
  • I have it currently set on 70, but I tried at 135 and at 200 it did not seem to make any difference as far as focus and f stop and shutter speed were concerned.  The focus seems spot on the ...
  • Just arrived and did a few test photos in the yard today but this lens is a keeper.  It is much better in all aspects compared to the 50-200WR Pentax lens.  A few test shots included and all were ...
  • Josh, Well done and welcome to Pentax land.  You did a excellent job on composition and exposure. Mike
  • Replied in Bottom Line
    Great advice David, I took my lens and K-50 to an old railroad siding and marked a tie with chalk  near one end and shot it was easy to tell where the focus point was located on the tie and the ...
