  • 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 ?
  • Did you get the half press shutter button auto focus sorted out yet? I also have Pentax and the GR. My GR does half press and holds auto focus while I may recompose. I do also use the AFL button ...
  • I think you mean by fast the auto focus. I understand that the auto focus is a bit slow on the macro but for a macro that is normal. Even so I think the 35mm macro will do all what you need as ...
  • nice romantic setting. curious to know what the original exposure was. it seems it would evoke the senses more with much less exposure. was it late afternoon, early morning ? cheers
  • Thanks for you reply. I guess you are correct, compression does it. I ran a very similar post in the Pentax forum and it was the same opinion. So nothing to worry about then. Cheers
  • Thanks for the reply I have noise reduction off on both cameras. ISO on the Pentax 80 and on the Ricoh GR 100
  • Created questions K5 ll Image file size
    What determines out of camera,no PS,image file size? The reason I ask is my K5 ll is about 12MB at it's highest quality jpg setting and my Ricoh GR is about 6MB at it's highest setting. I believe ...
  • Created discussions Ricoh GR / Pentax file size
    Does anyone own the GR and Pentax K5... ? Or can someone figure this one out. I do and I was wondering why the L jpg file size on the GR is about 6MB and on the Pentax about 12MB. I thought they ...
  • Another answer came. They suggested looking at scotthargisphoto. You will see interior photography that was mostly with a mild wide angle like the 20mm. It would suit your coffee house photos. Cheers
  • YES. I have used this at 20mm for interiors. In fact I opted to use this for interiors at an office building complex. I did have a wider lens but needed to create a more realistic intimate ...
