  • Replied in k50 or k5
    I would lean towards the K-50. Newer product, hence more likely to be patched via firmware updates and for a longer period; better video support. Higher ISO, though this may be irrelevant in real ...
  • I did call Ricoh and they said that the buyer has 30 days to purchase the extended warranty. Thanks, Jawa
  • I just bought a Pentax Two Year Extended Warranty from Tri-State camera, since neither Adorama and B+H had it in stock.This is to cover my K-3 that I got two weeks back. I was going through the ...
  • David, I am curious about the workflow you were using. Did you transfer the card to an external card reader in order to transfer to your PC/Mac? Did you try and transfer images using the USB 3.0 ...
  • Got the K-3, grip, and 540FGZ flash on a deal from Adorama. Could not pass it up. Updated the firmware from 1.0 to 1.11. Configured settings to recommendations from pentaxforum, as a starting point. ...
  • Interesting!Now I don't feel bad about my CBA and LBA ;-) So you will have five SLRs with lenses attached on a semi-permanent basis. How do/will you decide which (ones) to take with you? Thanks, Jawa
  • Just when I was deciding to sell my K-01 because I rarely use it :-( I am trying to deal with my LBA and CBA (Camera Buying Addition), and hence downsizing my collection. Perhaps I should just find ...
  • Replied in Dean...
    With my K-30, I have had mixed experience with the AA Ni-MH batteries. I have used four sets of these batteries, including one set of eneloops. They appear to last about as long as the dedicated ...
  • Thanks for all the responses. I could have sworn I had tried with with the aperture setting in the camera menu. I guess I was mistaken. I just tried it on my 50mm f1.7 and auto focus worked. Regards, ...
  • I am curious as to why auto focus is not available when aperture is NOT set to "A" on AF lenses which an aperture ring. After all, the necessary contacts are still present when one changes from ...
  • Can you please tell me what video and other settings you use in order to get the 23-25 minutes? Thanks, JT
  • I was using a Sandisk Class 10 card which is rated as 30 Mbps. If the 80 Mbps cards will only help with the burst mode usage, then clearly that is not the solution for how one can get extended ...
  • My K-01 is on the latest firmware. I recently shot some video using the 18-55mm AL II lens. The quality and frame rate were set at the highest levels. Locale was indoors, and there was just about ...
  • I have used the K-500 as well as the K-30 (proxy for K-50). The focus point indicators are something that I really miss when I use the K-500. For that reason alone I would opt for the K-50. Thanks, ...
  • Thank you very much for all the comments and advice. I will post pictures once spring really gets here ! Regards, JawaT
  • It is the Sigma 400mm f5.6 manual focus k-mount, NOT K/A mount lens. Hope to get something faster and AF if really start making use of this lens. JawaT
  • Created discussions Sigma 400mm f5.6 lens
    I am getting a Sigma K-mount 400mm f5.6 lens. I plan to use it for wildlife photography - mostly birds I guess.It is supposed to be good quality even fully open. I guess I will find out! I will be ...
  • I have both the K-30 and the K-500. I use both with leather grips rather than the traditional camera straps. While the K-30 looks more aggressive, I find the K-500 (and hence the K-50) easier to ...
  • I have had a K-500 for 10 months now. Got it for a very good price along with the 18-55 and 50-200 lenses. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. Yesterday landed a K-30 locally on craigslist. I ...
  • All the turtles from a nearby stream were out in force getting some rays. Never seen so many of them clustered together! Thanks, Jawa
