Does anyone have a white K-50 or K-30? I just bought a K-3 and was planning to keep my K-x as a second body. But since I needed a couple of WR lenses for rainy-day shooting, I think I've decided to sell the K-x and just get the WR lenses in a kit with the K-50. Comes out to be about the same net cost, and I get a new camera for the backup. Anyway, I really like the looks of the white K-50, and that kit is only $20 more than the black. But I have two questions first: Does the white part of...

I just ordered the K-3 as a replacement for my K-x, and I’m trying to choose a WR lens or two. There are two situations in which I find myself wanting WR: Hiking, usually shooting waterfalls. Typically I shoot these with the DA21, but it’s not WR for times when it’s raining. Shooting youth flag football. I almost always use the Tamron 70-200/2.8 for this, but again it’s not WR when it rains. After spending the money on the new body, I can really only afford to spend ~$300 for now. So I...

I am wondering how loued is the shutter sound of a K-3. I have three mirrorless cameras: Panasonic GX1, Olympus PM2 and Olympus M10. There is not only something one that attracts me to K-3, also the current price for and body is so attractive. To add - I still have from the film days several Pentax lenses. My question: "How you compare the loudness of the K-3 shutter sound with the listed above mirrorless cameras?" Thank you. Leo

Hi! I'm a 21 years old student from Quebec and I have been saving money for a long time and I feel ready to invest in a better camera. I do a bit of everything but what I like best is mostly landscapes ( Mountains, Lake, etc). I am also fascinated by night shots (milky way, cities, etc). But I would also like to find a camera that would still be good if I need to do a bit of everything . For now, my budget is $1500 max and I would like to have advice on which one I should buy. With the kit...

I tend to exposure bracket a lot of these type of shots, especially interiors, and blend them in post. When using the pixel shift feature on the k-3ii, would I have to shoot one shot at a time, probably with the flu card enabled app in order to not shake the camera between shots on a tripod, or can you still bracket shots? Also, does anyone know if you can shift the sensor, a.k.a. mini-shift lens effect, then use pixel shift as well? I am trying to determine if the workflow becomes...

So I started with Pentax some years ago with a K-r, drawn in by the small limited lenses nobody else was making. I then progressed to the k-01, and have the da 15, 35macro, 40mm, as well as a Sigma 10-20 and 30mm f1.4 and some random older Pentax lenses. I've been really struggling to decide to stay with Pentax or go to something like the em-1 or G7.  I shoot two subjects, architecture interiors and exteriors, and my little kids. I recently bought a Ricoh GR and a lx100, which I use as small...

Hello, Long time lurker here, and first, thank you to all contributors for providing so much helpful information. Let me start by saying I have a knack for making things much more complicated than they are. So, to make a mountain out of a molehill…. I upgraded to a K-3 a couple months ago, and have enjoyed exploring the new features as well as revisiting features I’d bypassed on my K-5. Previously I shot exclusively in RAW, but with the K-3’s fast burst rate (and longer processing time), I’ve...

I've been eyeing a new camera for years and have been impressed with the K-3 ever since it came out.  I'm now traveling to Peru for the summer and am ready to take the plunge.  I'm heading down on a scholarship to work on Hispanic and Latin American cultural studies.  The goal is to bring back imagery and other information to use in elementary and high school lessons. I'm planning on taking a lot of landscape and street photography with a mix of portrait or people shots.   I need some help...

I have seen and also used Pentax K-3 camera few months ago, I really like the specification vs price ratio of Olympus DSLRs... If the news is true I will buy a secondary FF system for sure http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/rumor-has-it-pentax-will-use-the-sony-36mp-ff-sensor-for-their-first-digital-ff /

How well does the Pentax K-32 perform in taking astro photos with its GPS unit and Astrotracer unit? Any examples? Any limits for ISO, shutter time settings? Best regards, HermanTwitter @hermandijkhuis
