  • Huh? I took the Ritz/Amazon offer... went without a hitch, quick response & fast delivery, NIB, easy, no problems... Just sayin'... M
  • Using the K-30 Manual (English)... Go to page 173 and read through "Chapter 6: Playback Functions and Image Editing"... next, Go to page 188 "Cropping"... crop your image to the desired aspect ratio ...
  • Replied in Get the K3 II...
    The pros/cons have been well fleshed out in this thread's previous posts. As an enthusiast and early adopter 365'r since July 4, 2008, I've worked through the K100D--> K20D--> K-7--> K-5--> K-5 ...
  • I agree, squezy bottles work well, too. Starting out, I saw them (I use them, now BTW) as being the 'next step' in upping my game toward 'power user.' :-D OTOH... Precision's starter kit seems ...
  • Again, I took Precision's advice to reuse the OEM carts for all but YELLOW and everything works OK. As I understand things, the OEM carts have better pressure equalization channels for ink ...
  • I started with... 16oz Medium Deluxe Refill Kit with Resetter ...and it's worked out just fine. Should you find the need, you can always add items 'a la cart' when you order additional ink, later. ...
  • That's good to know (I guess). Precision offers several good reasons for avoiding potential issues related to mixing/flushing the OEM YELLOW. I did not wish to run the risk so I followed ...
  • YELLOW is the only cart that needs replacement. The rest can be reused without flushing, if refilled at the right time. Precision offers detailed written instructions and a collection of videos ...
  • As metioned in the previous post, consider precisioncolors.com They sell all of the parts you'll need. I bought the Pro 100 with refilling in mind, so I did my homework and knew what to watch for ...
  • Replied in Or use...
    ...the dust removal tool in Lightroom as part of one's normal post processing procedure. I understand that you are referencing lens dust, not sensor dust. I've never had to use the LR tool with my ...
  • Replied in An FYI...
    I accepted Samy's early K-3 II offering. The camera promptly arrived fresh with a shutter count of 1 and its build date did not fall within the time frame of the recall. I used the camera for a ...
  • While jthommo101 can answer... In the meantime, if you go to the image in Flickr, you can see it was pp'd using LR 5.7. It's easy to neutralize K-3II "in-camera NR = OFF" iso noise as high as 8000 ...
  • DA*300+HD 1.4TC... a great WR combo/kit that can handle LR's additional close 'crops to compose'. My 2 cents... M
  • ...the way it is for a reason. ;-) Just sayin'... M
  • Replied in Hmmmmmm...
    OK... you say -1EV fixes the issue... -1EV is not a lot and if that's what's needed, then where's the problem? Isn't that why EV compensation is there? You adjust it as needed. How complex is the ...
  • Replied in Learning Curve ?
    Great! Keep in mind that every 'new' (to you) camera/kit has a learning curve. The old-pro photographers often comment that it took them at least a year with a new kit to learn how to consistently ...
  • Replied in Get it...
    You are certainly entitled to your opinion. On the other hand, I find the K-3 forces the photographer up his/her 'high iso taming game'... post processing-wise. I routinely shoot moving and still ...
  • Replied in Get it...
    I have a K-5 IIs and as good as it is, it eats dust when compared to the K-3 I've been shooting everyday in the field since October 2013. (My recently acquired K-3 II seems even better...:-)) Just ...
  • Replied in Bingo...
    The K-3 II body that I ordered from Sammy's last Sunday arrived today. It appears factory fresh with a SN out of the call back range and a shutter count of 1 (not including my snap to get a ...
  • Granted, the built-in GPS is not a substitute for a smart phone GPS app. On the other hand, it does record where you were when you took a photo. Lightroom can take that embedded location info and ...
