  • Agreed F1.8 would allow me to shoot with lower noise on those very rare occasions where f2.8 and no flash is the requirement and light is very low but shutter needs to be high. The difference f1.8 ...
  • All that's happening is those punters who brought dlsr because it was hip are finding taking decent pictures with a flexible picture making tool takes effort and study both at the time of shutter ...
  • Yet 5 year ago they were 'cooking the books' to make things look better than today so how do you compare Olympus 5 years ago where no accurate financials exist and today?
  • I don't think they are competitive units despite both hitting 300mm the road map units will either be consumer level @ around £600 and be optically limited or they'll be pro units in which case ...
  • But would a better tripod damp the vibration quicker. I.e is your tripod a heavy gauge carbon fibre or small gauge aluminium my geo 640L does not allow a K3+bigma to twitch for anywhere near 2 sec ...
  • I think like most 'rumours' it probably came from a glib remark from some person related to Pentax/Ricoh in some tenuous way (technician/salesman) , That the average person would assume would have ...
  • Given Pentax/Ricoh officially stated all affected k3's woudl need returning to service for modification (base fw updates) and some web jockeys who know nothing said..... FW 1.10 will fix k3 runaway ...
  • One other thought looking at your k20d shot it shows heavy artificial light though the k20d has WB'd to daylight hence natural light appears clear but the whole image is badly underexposed and has ...
  • image 2 = iso 2200 image 3 = iso1600 image 2 sensor has considerably more gain than image 3 and is correspondingly more able to display flare from off axis light sources. also note a few degrees ...
  • It seems indicative of heavy lens cheap tripod to me. The camera is oscillating in the vertical maybe due to weather or harmonic frequency of the tripod.
  • Yep this is most welcome I get occasional red cast under sodium , It'll be fine 298 out of 300 images but then 2 with WB all over the shot.
  • Simplulz Auto XAF = Acquire logical target from 1 of X AF points Expanded X AF = Maintain focus from acquired target (center expanding area) handing off focusing to X targets as required. Target ...
  • Replied in Could it be...
    That is true for all SR cameras k10d - k5 The k5ii introduced a new function where SR disable on pan automatically (but not for long enough to not blur your image :( We're all old dogs here :D
  • I fail to see how your issue can be laid at Ricoh's door, Even though I got caught with the same SR behavior change and we heavily discussed this months ago in this forum. Pentax have clearly ...
  • 1.x0 x = minor feature update 1.0x x = bug fix x.00 x = major feature update In Theory :S
  • Replied in CCD vs. CMOS
    Agree 100% the only reason MF stayed CCD was lack of investment in R&D nothing related to any inherent perceived superiority of CCD. MF sensor maker were busy going bust rather than development. Ag ...
  • Why not just insist on getting what you pay for a working lens ?? Condition is irrelevant (within reason) if you claiming under warranty even if you claim DOA  and want a replacement. No supplier ...
  • Replied in CCD vs. CMOS
    I think the low ISO ccd argument was only valid for k20d generation cmos sensors and then only at base ISO. CmoS has been better or superior ever since the Kx generation with it much improved black ...
  • The lens looks faulty but there is a a chance that 1 of two issue could be the cause First is the lens is unfocussed, Look at this from the bigma pretty sharp ? but look again at 1:1 at the beak ...
  • That is both on a 1ds so FF, It not going to get better for either on apSc Centre performance will remain identical except for reduced ability to close down. And edge performance will favour the ...
