  • Just go back to basics. Two incident light readings, one from camera position and the other to main light source then take the average. This is a landscape with the available light and a shadow is ...
  • Ned that and another 67 were my mainstay for over thirty years as a pro. Bruce Weber still uses them. Cheers
  • Perfect exposure, just like Kodachrome
  • Photography has never been a hobby for me
  • Created questions X-T1 CROP OPTIONS
    I am so used to shooting 6X7 - 4X5 over the years for commercial photography that my brain sees that way. I use 3X2 SLR for quite some time now but I always leave plenty of space for cropping to ...
  • Found this so it helps a little but where I live on the coast landscapes have movement in a breeze or wind likewise animals move. Maybe it is only for desert landscapes and taxidermist animals. "Th ...
  • The photos of the elephant and tiger are superb but tell me. I thought the K3 II sensor shift or whatever it is called was limited to still life subjects with no movement. Can someone explain how ...
  • How can you not have the viewfinder info showing in the viewfinder when shutter set to X for studio photography? It is very distracting to have the underexposure showing and flashing as if one is ...
  • looking at photos from 'suspended' they are good. I mean really good!
  • Rub it in! I paid over twice that for K5ll and DA 20-40. Black Friday - Christmas is when to go shopping for camera gear or at least for Pentax kit.
  • I moved from the K5 to the K511 and elected not to go with the K511s. I think that the crispness of images having no AA filter is beyond the human eyes natural way of seeing things. I am very ...
  • I checked the manual also and suspect that focus setting should not matter. I think it struggles with white balance when I am doing large interiors where there is a lot of tungsten light and fill ...
  • I agree about flat colors and contrast which I don't mind for the most part. You can select, scroll through the menu, 'standard 1' instead of 'standard', and boost the color, contrast and ...
  • Created discussions GR Multi White Balance
    Does the multi white balance work in 'snap focus' ? Or does it need the auto focus areas to read the colors for white balance? I have used both multi and auto white balance with mixed lighting ...
  • Does any one of you out there have this set up? How do you like it? I think it has the same filterless sensor as the GR I really like the ldea of this system. To bad it is now put to sleep although ...
  • Looks great. The GR files are amazing. I am using my GR more and more on some pro shoots. It would be fantastic if Ricoh produced a GR with say a 50mm also. I would be toting one over each shoulder. ...
  • Well I'm quite sure many of you know this but lenses painted white is not a trendy thing, unless it is one of those options on those colorful cameras of late. ED glass is sensitive to heat so the ...
  • Well I'm not sure about that as it would just be a minor upgrade of sorts as the K5 llS / Ricoh sensor out performs the K3 sensor from what I read. The GR is already without AA filter. So if Ricoh ...
  • Does the GR have the same flash contact points as the PENTAX ? Do any of you use TTL flash on your GR off camera via a cable ?
  • Created discussions New Pentax wireless Flash
    Will one of the newer Pentax wireless flashes operate (TTL) without being in the hot shoe. I would like to place the flash on a bracket with the K5 ll or is there a cable it would require ?
