  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    Not having a rotatable rear screen is a big PLUS as far as I am concerned.

  • What you are actually doing is telling the camera how much noise you are prepared to put up with. "High ISO" just means don't bother to wait too long to collect photons, do it quickly and then...
  • [snip] OK - so AWB (in green) is not the title of the column of settings (all in white) you can choose, it's also a setting that you can choose. Poor choice by Pentax there IMO, if it said Auto it...
  • Yeah, it was daylight but the camera was set WB=flash. I was in front of a window with the camera aimed in the window direction. Hmm, don't *think* there's an auto setting for WB. Not on the K100D...
  • Thanks, that's quite helpful. I guess my perceptions of what is sharp or not comes from shooting Kodachrome 25 with Pentax camera going back to the Spotmatic, but most recently with an M-ZM and an...
  • The camera actually belongs to my wife, who asserts she is satisfied with the image quality. The issue came to my attention because I've just taken over our village website, so I'm going around...

  • Created questions 18-55: DA vs. DAL
    I know what the differences are between DA and DAL, but in the case of the 18-55 WR it seems to cause a large difference in price. Is the quick-shift focus mechanism so complex that removing it...
  • I expect I'm overlooking it and the info I want is actually there, but I can't seem to discover which Pentax DSLRs provide the screw drive and which don't, if any (because they would only be using...
  • Created questions Kit zoom 18-55
    My wife has a K100D Super, from new, with the 18-55 kit zoom it came with. I'm starting to conclude that this lens has generally poor resolution, although chromatic aberration is fairly low. AIUI,...
