  • As suggested by Dave Stott above In windows I use Irfanview. Open your files in two instances of it and you can view them side by side. I often put them simply behind each other and toggle between ...
  • Do you have a reference? The 540 might take longer to charge when fully discharged. But if you shoot a subject at 9 meters with an aperture of f/4 (and flash head at longest focal length), the 360 ...
  • It was indeed an expensive flash, but one of the few that had full manual, auto-thyristor and TTL/pTTL. Maybe indicate how you use it. Not very useful to get advice on a full manual flash if you ...
  • To add to this, it's very simple to fake the email address that you see in the from field. My wife often gets emails from herself; checking email headers shows that they actually come from Brazil. ...
  • Don't; your friend needs to handle it to find out if it works for him/her. If your friend does not like the handling of the camera that you bought, he/she will never use it. Your preference does ...
  • To Richemmers In case this is a Metz 45CT-1: there were two series of this flash, the one is not safe (serial number before 534000 if I'm not mistaken).
  • True. Just had the feel that Mark's 'absolute' statement needed some finetuning ;)
  • In those days I did not have the money to buy a dedicated flash ;) So I bought a non-dedicated one that still works today. Trigger voltage was already raised as a concern.
  • You don't know if it will not work properly or your definition of properly is not the same as mine. If that old flash is in the category non-dedicated (e.g. a Metz 45 CT-1 or a Metz 50 MZ-5 with ...
  • Search the web for flash trigger voltage . One hit is http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html ; check if your flash is mentioned there as being safe. There are adapters like the Wein Safesync ...
  • A 18-140 or a 70-200 or whatever will always be that, regardless if it was designed for APSc or FF or .... What changes is the field of view when mounted on APSc or FF or ... And the field of view ...
  • No, only with (modern) Pentax lenses
  • Congrats Buy a flash instead, far more useful at this stage.
  • I always find it disappointing how much light is required. So yes, you're expecting too much. I run into the same kind of issues while outdoors in the late afternoon. ISO 3200, f/8 and 1/30s to ...
  • Might be useful: http://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/review-news/hd-pentax-da-16-85mm-first-impressions-review.html?src=all
  • I think that is the best idea. Both lenses serve a bit of a different purpose; but the 35mm will also do for full body portraits.
  • For DOF, it does not matter if your lens is designed for FF or MF or APSc or ... So a (e.g. 50mm) lens designed for APSc mounted on a FF camera will give the same DOF as a (e.g. 50mm) lens designed ...
  • As the others indicated, different monitors require different calibrations. I don't know if you can do much about the Samsung, but for your computer, you can use the following steps to get it more ...
  • Replied in Do you burst?
    My wife works like that ;) Only difference is that she makes me make the selection :(
  • In addition to Tom Axford's reply The aperture range is not 2.8 to 5.6. The widest apertue is 2.8 at the shortest focal length and 5.6 at the longest focal length.  The range goes to e.g 16 or 22. ...
