I have been a Pentax user since the early 1960's, my first SLR even had a screw lens mount. I have had many Pentax cameras over the years. This was the first, but not my only Pentax digital camera. The e-dial has become faulty and often does not change parameters correctly. I sent it to Precision Camera. They returned it stating parts no longer available. It appears they did not even try and open it, perhaps a cleaning is all thats necessary. I am a retiree now on a fixed income and don't...
I have several lower end Pentax mount lens that I previously used in a 35mm Ricoh. Rather than buying an entire new system of some brand I'm questioning buying a used Pentax that can still use these. I am very, very much a novice who would like to experience a bit more potential than provided by my point & shoot Olympus. Ease of use is a priority, too. If I shouldn't go this route I'd appreciate some recommendations on a newer easy to use system of some sort that I can get into for around...
I have a Panasonic 7-14mm modified (using Anders W method of installing the 8.5mm fish-eye rear filter holder) to take gel filters. I have two different 75mmx75mm Kodak Wratten gelatin filter sheets - one is ND 0.9, the other is 2B. I want to install these filters (and swap them in the field, while hiking) - the first to shoot running water/etc., the second to get rid of the purple blobbing issue which is somehow really bad on my lens. Questions: a. How do I figure out which size to cut? Is...
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 ?
