  • I think that this just about sums it up.  I will probably find the FF hard to resist but only if it is not too heavy, not too expensive and there are some affordable lenses on offer.  The two ...
  • I got this on my K5!11s but I just live with the dust as I am not very confident about removing the focus screen.
  • I guess the suspense was just too much.  I did crop the picture a bit so the field of view is perhaps a bit misleading.  The lens ins question is the Sigma 8-16 which seems to beat even the DA 15 ...
  • I was quite surprised and impressed by the way in which the lens rendered a very bright sun.  Anyone like to guess which lens?
  • Better Autofocus Articulated screen Weight not much more than K3 Some affordable lenses around 500g in weight Greater resolution Facility to choose between cropped and FF modes rather than camera ...
  • Many thanks for all the replies and especially to Gerry for his explanations.  I have printed from ACDSee, PSE, Canon Easy Print pro, Capture one 7  and the images in question always turn out ...
  • Les, Thanks for your trouble.  Just to say that your versions print out just like the others but thanks for helping anyway! Miles
  • My first trial print after using Adobe DNG Converter was promising, but when I tried again with the same file today, it was the same old story of a green sky. I went back to the beginning and ...
  • Thankyou Barry for your time and trouble. My problem was that the images looked fine on screen and also soft proofed, but something overrode the printer driver settings. Adobe DNG converter seems ...
  • Many thanks Les, I have downloaded your version but the acid test will be to see whether it prints correctly
  • Yes I put it through Adobe DNG converter just prior to posting via Dropbox. The original DNG file was processed in ACDSee and I think that after the printing problems, I put it through ACR to see ...
  • Yes I am afraid that prior to posting via Dropbox,  I tried the Adobe DNG converter which seems to have fixed the printing problem.
  • Thanks for your interest and help.  The Adobe DNG converter seems to have stripped out the data which was causing the printer problem and looking at a small test print, it looks as though the ...
  • Hi Barry, This is a dropbox link to the original Pentax DNG file. I think that the DNG converter has solved the problem, but it would be useful to know whether there is any information which ...
  • I have Capture One Express and will try that but Photoshop Camera Raw did no better than ACDSee.  All very annoying because there were  fairly spectacular weather conditions and the waterfront ...
  • A final word on this - as can be seen above there is no real green cast on the sky of the Portsmouth Harbour picture, but after innumerable abortive attempts I have not found it possible to print ...
  • I fear you may be right.  I have used ACDSee for some years because it is really easy to use, but it is prone to bugs and this may well be one of them, unless of course it has to do with algorithm ...
  • I have been using ACDSee pro 8 and I was always under the impression that when it opened a DNG, it initially read the embedded JPEG which appears for a few seconds. The RAW file then appears and I ...
  • Created discussions Custom image and DNG
    Inadvertently I must have pressed a few wrong buttons and ended up with some of my photos having bleach bypass applied to them.  Initially they looked awful when viewed on my monitor but after a ...
  • Very pleased that you have managed to get a refund from ebay. With that in mind I think I would consider putting the camera back on ebay clearly stating it is defective and someone might give you ...
