Looking for an entry level mount to track stars, and avoid star trails. Using a Pentax k30 with a range of lenses, nothing overly big or heavy for now though.

I'm considering between Omd vs k30. It might cross the line for the system. I'm not the professional photographer but I love to take a photo. I pick these two choices because the image quality, vf, w/r, ibs and don't mind about the size. I have look through both sample image and read some of articles. However, I'm still wondering which one could perform better in image quality. The micro4/3 and apsc, will these both systems can use for long term among the coming sensor competition era. should...

Hi, all, Probably I should just resign myself to staying on the line with customer service for a couple hours, but: I've had my K-30 since last November, and since I was enjoying it so much as it was, I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't bother to check the manual and see why my shake reduction wasn't on--until this past week. I was sure it was some little thing that I needed to correct. But now I've read the manual, and every instruction I try to follow leaves me with the same problem: the...

I promise, I did a LOT of reading of forum posts on this. But, it didn't help much. All I want to know is: Has anyone removed the Ricoh pin from a Sorry, Vivitar 2X Macro TC? I'm talking about the one with A contacts. (Although I suppose only A-mount types have the Ricoh pin; I've never seen one on the K-mount version.) Maybe, as a corollary, I'd like to ask: Does anyone own the Vivitar 2X Macro TC w/ Ricoh pin, and use it with no problems on their Pentax? I have a bit of experience with...

My K30 is exhibiting some frustrating behavior. In all exposure and metering modes at 0.00ev and a single center focal point, I have been getting wildly different exposures shooting the same scene. Here are some test shots converted in LR 5 at standard defaults using the DA 70 2.4, but all my lenses are doing this: 1/250, f/2.4 ISO200 1/125, f/2.4, ISO100 Also: 1/400, f/2.4, ISO 200 1/160, f/2.4, ISO 100 1/400, f2.4, ISO 100 and, using live-view: 1/10, f/2.4, ISO 100 It's all over...

Hi, Yes, I know the K30 has 100% VF coverage. However, I wear glasses and have to stick my face 1 nose on the LCDto be able to take advantage of it. I tried my Pentax 1.2X magnifier but the clearance with the LCD screen is not that much better. Can anyone recommend ( or post a link ) to some 3rd party alternatives that you may use if you are in the same situation?   Thank you!

Hi all. I have a K30 with a Sigma 18 - 200 kit lens that I took to Nepal last year, being a total amateur I was happy with most of my photos. I'm going to Southern Africa at the end of this year & am looking at buying a longer zoom lens, but my budget will be tight, so I'm looking at up to 300mm lenses. Ebay stores have a new PENTAX SMC DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 at AUD $ 365 delivered (I'm Australian), or a Sigma APO DG 70 - 300mm f/4-5.6 (second hand) at about $115 delivered. I guess my question...

I have an old Sears 80-200 zoom that I used to use with my Sears KSX slr back in the 80's.After mounting it on the K-30, it prompts for a mm. Do I enter 200 or 80? Thanks, in advance, for your help.

Hi! I am a beginner in the digital photography field but I am interested in using a digital SLR camera that is just a notch below that of a professional. I have a question pertaining to the camera in the Subject Field above, I hope somebody knows the answer to it. Here is the question: In low-light conditions and not using a flash, at what ISO number does this camera begin to manifest noise in its photos? Please respond.
