  • One thing I noticed reading the K3 review is that it isn't available in gearshop whereas the Pentax Q7, Nikon D610, D5300 and Df that you mention are all available there. I don't know if this is a...
  • Because it captures them in a dynamic way which the human eye cannot. I'd ask why do think motorsport photographers do not just capture images of a stationary car or motorcycle?
  • It's good to hear from someone that has the ability to shoot the 2 systems side by side. Some lovely shots on your blog.
  • That looks like a great day out for mg spectators and drivers alike. The blue MGBGT looks like a combo of a GT and a MG RV8, there is some info here...

  • Replied in ex1/tl500
    Samsung ex1/tl-500? It falls short on your zoom range (3x) but starts at a handy 24mm eqiv. It's a bit quirky in that raw isn't available in continuous drive mode or bracketing and the video is not...

  • I use the tamron SP90 F2.5 adaptall on my Pentax and have tried it on my Panasonic GF2 and G2. The problem is that there in some reflections off the sensor causing some flare on the shot. It...

  • Those 2 shots look pretty sharp to me. I like the way the background is rendered in the robin shot. I often see sharp out of focus highlights on tree branches etc in digital, it will be interesting...
  • I haven't done it but lots of people talk about using katzeye replacement screens here http://www.katzeyeoptics.com/cat--Pentax-DSLRs--cat_pentax.html
