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...

Hi everybody, have a request. My wife arrived in Eilat Israel today for a 8 days holiday. She might buy the DA15mm for me if the price is right/attractive.  Can you give a suggestion at what shop she should get it to get a nice price for it ?  Thanks in advance :-) .... --;-) rgrds.

Ron, My "new" Pentax 1.7x AFA arrived today.  DA* 300/4 shows reports maximum aperture of f6.7 on the K20D.  Is that correct, 2 stops? Of course it's finally raining here so no pictures yet. Thanks, --Chris=-=-=-=-=-http://www.flickr.com/photos/36153401@N08/collections/http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8167/7225835232_e69a46d418_q.jpg

Hey all. So, ive been using a pentax K20d for the last year or so.  Im looking at switching to the D7000.  One of the major reasons for this is the noise performance. I tend to quite a bit of photography at night (particularly portrait photography) and anything above iso 400 tends to lose quite a bit of detail.  So, my question is how does the D7000 do in low light with high iso? The problem with this of course is that i am restricted to slow shutter speeds so it is impossible to capture any...

Hello, I'm on the fence to upgrade from K20D to K-5 II or K-3. I'm running into the limits of my K20D when I try to take pictures of people dancing salsa at parties. My setup is K20D, Metz Mecablitz 50 AF-1 and DA SMC 16-45 f/4. The venues are dark. (1/6 sec F/4 ISO 1600 without flash) When taking portraits of standing or sitting guests the autofocus takes seconds to lock, even when using the red focus light on the Metz 50 AF-1. It bothers me but I can live with that. Taking shots of dancing...

I just received a brand new waterproof O-RC1 remote for my Pentax cameras - but, unfortunately, it seems to be dead on arrival. I tried it with both my K20D and my Q - both set to remote controlled shutter release mode, of course - but without success. I guess I need a replacement or do you know of an activation process for the remote. My last cheapo one worked out of the box. Thanks for your help. --JanMy photos:http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosember/http://www.pentaxphotogallery.com/

My Vivitar Series 1 1.4x TC was waiting in the mailbox when I came in this evening. I was playing around with it, but I noticed that it was reporting the full aperture of the lens. As in, I could still get f/1.4 on my FA 50, even though it should only be f/2. It says the focal length is 50mm as well. Perhaps that's why the instructions say to turn off SR. I haven't had time to play with it in decent light to see if it's underexposing The body is a K20d. Is this normal? P.S. - I didn't buy it...

Hi again... :-), In my experience the K01 decides what to focus on, in a variable way. Is this normal and is there a setting to use a fixed focus point in auto/green mode ? In Av or Tv or other modes i can choose what kind of focus point and it's even possible to place the focus point, fixed, off-centre on the display etc.. But ... NOT in AUTO/GREEN mode, in my experience, or.... am i overlooking something ???? Please advise and thanks in advance. --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2,...
