  • I take your point although I think there is a link to my Flickr page where the two versions of the picture are shown in the should the EXIF data there.
  • why thank you! I used to have a list of all my cameras but I found that I was buying cameras so quickly that that became a pain and so I just put this in a fit of frustration!
  • No, this is an independent repair place that is waiting for a little rubber dust seal to arrive for my 50-135 2.8. Fortunately I have the lens in the mean time as it's not a vital thing. I wonder ...
  • No, that's Wodewick! Welease Wodewick!
  • Okay, thanks so much for all the help and input on this. Here's what I did. I took the DN G in light room and adjusted it to my satisfaction and output it is a 16-bit PSD file. I then took it into ...
  • Thanks! It wasn't a JPG at any point until I did a screen grab. It started as a DNG and then was exported as a PSD. I will definitely try doing a 16-bit output and see if that helps. Thanks again!
  • Replied in Do that test
    Thanks! I did that and see no banding on the monitor I am using for Photoshop.
  • I can see it on both my monitors and my wife can see it on her monitor too and it's way worse on my tablet. Phil
  • Eeek! I dunno! How do I find out? When the talk turns to colors, calibration and video display I want to commit suicide!
  • Can you see the unpleasantness here?
  • Yes, I think posterisation is what I'm seeing but I don't think I should be! I'm exporting from DNG to a PSD file from Lightroom and then into Photoshop then using Topaz B&W to convert to B&W. It ...
  • Oops, sorry. It's my K5ii and ISO 100.
  • Created questions Horrible noise!
    Hello again all, this time I have a question. This image is a small section of a JPEG taken from a DNG with a 4 second exposure at f5.6. I see this horrible banding quite frequently and I wonder ...
  • Hmm, I have been taking my Pentax's to a place in Seattle but the guy is so grouchy that I might just take to shipping it instead! The closest repair place is 85 miles from me. Miserable.
  • Ha ha! I wonder if it is easier in Canada (since they have a larger market share there)? I live on the border (US side) and could pop up to Vancouver for repairs if it would be much quicker. Any ...
  • Created discussions Is my K5ii the messiah?
    Hello everyone, I have just returned from a 3 day autumnal shoot between Banff and Jasper in Canada. Yesterday I opened the car door and my K5ii fell out and hit the ground. When I turned it on I ...
  • Never mind! Found it. Hit Info button and it is an option. Phil
  • Created questions Adjust heaphone level on K3
    Hi all, When I plug heaphones into my K3 I see a symbol at the top of the screen showing me that the heapdphones are plugged in and that the level is at 10 but I can see no way to change that ...
  • Thanks to all who helped. This totally worked!! And to prove it...
  • Thanks! It is metal so I will give it a try and report back. Phil
