Hi all, decided that I needed a "serious" flash (at least compared to the built-in one) to go with my K100D Super and bought a cheap, non-TTL, non-HSS flash that is often regarded as a good product for newbies (Couldn't spend five times or so as much in order to get a Metz). I have started researching and still in the thick of it regarding all things flash (reading The Hot Shoe Diaries, great book!) but I still have black spots here and there. :-| Question: can I trigger the Yongunuo with the...

Hi, I'm new here, so please be patient while I fill in the background.  I presently have both of these cameras, which I use with the following lenses - Sigma 17-70 f 2.8-4.5,  Sigma 70-300 f4-5.6, Tamron 90mm f2.8 Macro. I also have a Tokina 400mm f5.6. I also have a Mecablitz Ringflash. I am a very casual photographer, who goes hiking, and carries a camera to take photos of insects, flowers, scenery, buildings, and anything that looks interesting. My garden, surrounded by forest, has...

I reccently purchased a Vintage Vivitar Flash at a Garage sale. It is a Vivitar 285  Zoom Thiristor. (It is not the 285HV Flash). I do not know much about flashes, but was wondering if I can use this older flash with my canon t3i? Is it safe to use? I know I will probably have to use it manual mode, but hey, I only paid 5 bucks for it. Any one with any info on this would be appreaciated!

I have a K100D that's about 7 years old, I stopped using it the last 2-3 years, mostly because its AF is very slow, the picture quality is ok with still or slow moving objects. I stopped believing in Pentax's capability and want to get rid of it. With such an old piece of equipment, what's the best way to get rid of it, short of just letting it sit there collecting dust, is there some other use for it?

sold my k-5iis,   which didn't have consistent color ,  especially blues and violets,    not like the k200d or k100d, which have pretty accurate color,    now i have the k-5 for sale as the autofocus is not really that great on the k-5,  i use it mostly manual focusing,  but it's a good camera,    so my question is ,  i guess,    if i sell both cameras,   and use the money for a k-3 ,   will it be any better ?  or should i just keep the k-5 ,   and be content ?

I am interested in the new Sigma 18-200 HSM macro, to be released in April in the UK, but read on the Sigma site that Pentax cameras need to be compatible. Unsure what that meant I contacted Sigma to ask them if it would be fully functional on my K5 11 this was their reply. Roger- You can find more detailed information about the lens on our Global Vision website; http://www.sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/contemporary/c_18_200_35_63/index.html The specifications listed indicates Sony...

My ancient K100D was stolen and insurance has luckily replaced it with a brand new K30! However  I can not get it to work like either the K100 or my K7: When using flash, either popup or the Metz 58 AF2 I have noticed the following issues (others I am sure) using the 18-55WR: Av consistently sets the shutter speed low.  At 55mm shutter speed is 1/40 zooming out to 18 it drops to 1/15.  Changing aperture or ISO does nothing to these shutterspeeds selected by the camera.  With flash down, it...

Greetings!  I have an old K100D and am thinking of upgrading to something newer, for more megapixels and (I hope) a little less weight.   I have Pentax lenses ... will they automatically be compatible with, say, a K5? Any advice?   TIA! --'Bidden or not bidden, God is present.'

Possibly/Probably a dumb question (please excuse) ...I purchased a Pentax-A 35-105 f3.5 lens on eBay.  Used it the other night with my old Pentax K100D for shooting pics at a basketball game ... pleased with sharp, clear photos.  However ...I either cannot figure out how the zoom works on this lens OR the zoom does not work on this lens.  (Shot all pics at one focal length.)  So, I'm hoping someone with this lens can help.I see the ring on the lens that is marked with the numbers 35 50 80...
