Hi there, I've recently started getting into Astrophotography, been going out to take photos every chance I get and when I can't I'm reading up online about what I can do to improve. I definitely see myself improving, that's not to say I don't still have much to learn. I'm sure like most I just started with what equipment that is already available to me which right now is my Dad's Pentax K20D. He has a number of lenses and was a great starting point but I'm thinking about investing some money...

Hi everybody :-) I'm wondering if i understood the following correctly. Pentax stated: "... As for the APS-C-size image sensor, the DA lens series, the cropping function makes it possible to use the APS-C-size center portion of an image. By changing the settings, you can also choose a 35mm full-frame angle of view. ...". What i understand is, i can use a aps-c-lens (DA), change camera settings and get a full-frame angle of view, meaning, my aps-c-lens is covering the 35mm full-frame sensor. I...

I've been testing my new K-3 using all my lenses and flash. One thing that I found a little bit unusual coming from K20D is that whenever I mount an external flash AF-540FGZ, the LCD on the flash will turn on also when I press the shutter button halfway. I know that there is a setting on the K-3's menu C4-22 where I can set it as High/Low/Off to control how my top LCD gets illuminated. The problem is when I choose High/Low, when I press shutter button, it will also turn on the flash's LCD...

Hi, After waiting for so long for Pentax FF, I finally bought myself a used K-3  to replace my K20D. Yeah I know, it's long overdue. I read about the mirror flap problem with K-3 before. So my question is what would be the best version of the firmware that is the most stable to install on K-3 right now? On pentax website, the latest one is ver 1.21 but I read in some older thread that the best is ver 1.11 Thanks in advance --'SEE BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE''I will treasure every moment in my...

Hello, I have unfortunately lost all my photo gear in an accident. My gear bag containing all my equipment got crushed under the wheels of a 40t truck. :( So I am back to square 1. I used to shoot with a Pentax K5 + Pentax K20D, a DA* 50-135 f/2.8, the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 and the F 70-210 f/4-5.6. Since I have to completely rebuild my full gear on a tight budget I have been studying several options. First of all I mainly shoot Football (Soccer that is for our US friends) Rugby Union, Polo and Ice...

Hi, I haven't been to the forum for quite a while. New kid surely takes a lot of time to take care of :) I have a question about one of my Pentax Flash AF-540 FGZ . It doesn't want to go into P-TTL mode no matter what I did. The only time it goes to P-TTL mode when I set it to Wireless mode. Before it was a hit and miss when I mounted it to my K20D. Sometimes it goes to P-TTL but sometimes are not. Now, it's completely either goes to TTL, A or M mode only. I have 2 other AF-540 FGZ and they...

Anybody using one?  I picked up a used body from B&H for super cheap and I already had lenses from my old KR so I was plug and play. Yes, it's big and yes, It's loud but I don't really care about that. Good quality images, DNG files, Hyper Program mode, solid, tough feel and a bit of weather proofing are working out well for me so far. I never seem to see Pentax around in public. I was just wondering if people are using them for street work. Thanks!

Hi, Thanks to this forum, I finally got a Metz 58AF2 flash unit for my Pentax K20D camera.  I have thoroughly read through the Metz manual and tried to figure out this question...How do I use my Metz off camera without using my camera's pop-up flash to trigger it.  I am using it in the flash unit's "Servo" mode right now to do this.  Is it possible to have the Metz flash in sync with my camera without the camera's flash? Thanks guys, Craig --'In the end, we will remember not the words of our...
