miles500's recent activity

  • I think that talk of splitting the forum is premature.  It is not as if Pentax has a whole line-up of FF cameras to justify a spearate forum.  In any case whether or not I buy the forthcoming FF ...
  • Created discussion thread New full frame teaser
    http://www.pentax.com/en/pentaxff/ Just seen a new instalment dated tomorrow 14/01/16.  This is no doubt the reason why the website was down earlier.
  • They all look good to me.  I really like this lens and it is now my most used one. - Miles500
  • The problem with shorter focal length macro lenses ( I have the DA35mm) is that the camera has to  be fairly close to the subject which can cause a shadow as well as being unsettling for live ...
  • One of my shots from yesterday's christening which shows what this camera can do at 200iso- converted from RAw and PP in ACDSee 9 ultimate
  • I would be fairly happy with this shot and I can see that there were fairly high contrast lighting conditions.  I have had my LX100 for a week and also have mixed feelings.  I suspect that a ...
  • Replied in LX100 WiFi
    Thanks for reply - as you see I have managed a wirelss connection to my Nexus tablet but so far had no success with NFC, but I will have another try when time allows.  I an however much happier ...
  • Replied in LX100 WiFi
    Thanks for that - obvious when I think about it but not explained in that way in the manual. I was trying to connect through the panasonic app, but you simply check for a connection on the tablet ...
  • Created question thread LX100 WiFi
    I have tried without success to use NFC to connect to my Nexus tablet or to connect to my Home Network.  In the first case the only success I have had is that putting the two devices together ...
  • I like these shots.  As a new user I am very much feeling my way. Although some reviews have spoken well of the lX100's Jpegs, I am rather disappointed with them as they do not seem to produce ...

    i have now got the electronic version of this book and am only part way through it but already I have found several things which were not obvious to me from he official manual.

    Many thanks to the three of you who recommend this book of which I was unaware.  I will get the electonic version.
  • Created question thread New LX100 user
    I have just bought a LX100 to use as pocketable alternative to my Pentax DSLR and I guess I have become used to the IQ of the latter. Despite the DPR rave review of the LX100, it is stilll a ...
  • It looks fairly sharp for a long exposure and hand held image and I would not expect to get better than this unless I used a tripod.
  • Definitely the fist one as the water leads your eye into the picture.  The second one sandwiches the bridge between two lots of foliage which does not work for me.
  • I bought one when it first came out. I  found it very frustrating. It competed with my home network and continually dropped its connection.  The resolution on my tablet was so poor that I could ...
  • Thanks David - I will keep my eye on it as I am inclined to think it is more of a camera problem than a card one.
  • Thanks for that - I will download this and see what happens when i reformat the card.
  • Thanks for reply - I have had very few problems with any of my Pentax DSLRs and only isolated ones with the k3.  It has locked up a couple of times and removing and re-inserting the battery has ...
  • The first card was a 32GB Sandisk Extreme and the 2nd a Kingston 64GB and both were fomatted in camera.
