  • Replied in 36Mp not 24 Mp
    Apparently the early prototype did use the 24Mp sensor but this won't be used in the final camera.
  • Why don't you try it and show us the result? You do actually have a camera don't you?
  • A digital image is a data file which is essentially a matrix of colour information. It has no physical dimensions so far as pixels are concerned. The pixels in an image file are not the same thing ...
  • If you are using a lens with an aperture ring make sure it is set to the A position.
  • Pick any 2 from 3 but you don't get all three in the same lens from any of the main brands. The further you deviate from a standard prime the worse this issue gets. This where 3rd party brands can ...
  • I am also looking for a replacement for my K7 but will wait for the new FF. Realistically the new FF  is about a year away yet so that will give me plenty of time to save the extra cash. I think ...
  • www.ronbigelow.com/articles/articles.htm has some basic tutorials on compostion and visualisation.
  • Welcome back!
  • Replied in Not possible
    Who would hold the standard and who would police it? The best you can hope for is that good retailers like KEH and B&H have consistent internal rating systems which you can get to know and trust. ...
  • Which really means you need to tell LR where you keep your images. LR is different from other PP software as it uses a database to keep up to date with your images and any changes you make to ...
  • I think there are many more Pentax lenses available than there are Konica Minolta. Pentax used the vast number of legacy Pentax lenses in their advertising a few years ago. Add in third party K ...
  • From the BA Inspire Us website page :- The prize comprises of a trip to one of 10 European destinations departing from London Gatwick of a minimum of 3 nights. The prize includes a pair of Euro ...
  • Alkaline AAs have never been recommended and the results you got using then is pretty much what has always happened in any Pentax DSLR. They are really only fit for emergency use. When you say you ...
  • Replied in Oops!
    Let's hope I am not accurate that it won't launch until Photokina 2016.
  • You would have to be brave or crazy to try setting a price that far ahead of launch. However the date looks plausible coming shortly after Photokina where I would expect a full launch. It is also ...
  • The "constructed" sky is produced by ICE from the originals. It does look a bit artificial but not too intrusive. Had I known that 10 years on I would be able to make such use of the shots I would ...
  • The new version of Microsoft ICE now does stereographic presentation so I had to have a try. I took a complete circle of the amphitheatre piazza in Lucca, Tuscany in 2004. I was just shooting ...
  • Both OVF and LiveView show you the view through the lens so both will show the fisheye effect. LiveView will show you exactly what the sensor sees but the OVF may not show you everything unless ...
  • Replied in No, far worse
    If I won I would consider giving away all rights a fair deal but BA want the rights to all entries. Not a fair deal at all.
  • Replied in I'm amazed......
    That that show is still going on. I grew up in the era when tech shows like this were all the rage (cars, motorbikes, hi-fi etc.) but one by one they have fallen by the wayside. I would guess that ...
