  • Thanks for all the compliments and the reassurement. There is definitely something about the oof shot that I really like, but I can"t put a finger on why I like it so much. Even the ribbon is a ...
  • Thanks. The pictures were taken at the Grand Canyon.  This was also my first time playing with a new toy. I bought an led ring light which I was worried might not be bright enough to even have an ...
  • I shot some photos with a gymnast yesterday and I have a photo here that I can't make a decision about.  She was swirling this big ribbon at the edge of the canyon, given her constant motion back ...
  • The fact that its outside and fairly casual gives you a huge leg up.  You probably don't need much more gear than you have.  Making it work will come down to how you work with the lighting and ...
  • Replied in Blood Moon
    Here's my attempt with the K01 and 170-500. The weather was beautifully clear here, but I really wanted to figure out some interesting foreground element to get into the frame and couldn't make it ...
  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    It actually has these options already. You can customize the jpeg rendering in camera with sliders for color, hue, saturation, sharpening, nr, shadow/highlight correction and contrast. Its a pretty...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    Have you seen Pentax lenses? their primes are half the size of Nikon equivalents. There are about ten different Pentax lenses that make the kit lens look big. If you like primes a k3 kit can be...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    The outcry is because for the first time in a long time, Pentax has made a camera that far surpasses the competition and DPR is calling it just more of the same.
    They don't even mention in camera...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    This review does seem a little skewed to me.

    You complain about the default jpeg rendering but you can customize the jpeg profile in camera to get most any look that you want. If you care about...

  • In reading this thread and going back over my favorite ultrawide images, I find that my best images have very little sky in them at all.  Of course its all very subjective, but for me the key to a ...
  • I completely agree, beyond 14mm or so its always going to look a bit unnatural, might as well go all the way to fisheye. The fisheye is definitely a niche lens that doesn't get used everyday, but ...
  • I think it has more to do with the type of photographer that wants to drop $600 on a prime rather than a zoom vs prime issue.  There is also some inherent difficulty in framing a good composition ...
  • There are some hard physics that limit what we can do with our cameras. There are only so many photons hitting the sensor, when sensors max out the efficiency of converting photons to pixels we'll ...
  • The ultra wide is a tough choice, there is no single lens that does it all.  The Samyang 14mm is stunningly sharp and fast, but its manual, its heavy, and it flares badly. The Pentax 14mm is not ...
  • So I don't own a FLUcard and have not done this myself. But in my reading my understanding is that the Flucard can be operated in two different modes, the tethering connection or a file transfer ...
  • John you're really hung up on the semantics of the word conspiracy, which seems to me to have nothing to do with the argument here.  People in the Pentax community are accusing DPR of repeated ...
  • Conspiracy is the wrong word. I think people are rightfully upset, not because of brand bias but DPR seemingly being less interested in serious cameras.  They're putting more and more effort into ...
  • I keep up with the developments a little, apparently the roads are progressing like crazy, considering the terrain.  In 2006 we walked from Besisahar to Pohkara around the Annapurna circuit and ...
  • I did a very similar trip in 2006.  Nepal is absolutely stunning.  Seeing these pictures makes me really want to go back. Thanks for sharing!
  • Yeah, I was just looking into this, and apparently in the U.S. it is perfectly legal to take anything under 4lbs to any altitude provided its tether to the balloon is less than 50lbs breaking ...
