Ok....so I'm not new to the photography world, however I am a bit green in the world of digital cameras. Went to school for photography in the 90's, spent lots of time in the darkroom. So, I know the "ins and outs" of "photography". That being said....I'm buying my first DSLR.....been doing a ton of reading on specs, reviews, bla bla bla. My budget currently is right around $800-$900 for a body and a lens or two, so I know I'm not getting a "pro" level DSLR. But I'd like the best I can get...
I was originally considering a K-50 double zoom kit for a safari I'm going on, however, I can pick up a K-5II with the 18-55 and 50-200 for roughly $150 more than the K-50 kit (everything is expensive here in Sweden...). That gives me better build quality, much better battery capacity, more external controls, top LCD and slightly better AF but slightly worse video if I've understood everything correctly. Money is not the greatest issue, but I don't want to spend more than I have to. What...
Okay I am 18 trying to get my first PRO Camera/dSLR. My Dad was a Pro in film but it's a new age: Digital. So I have my eye on a few cameras and I'm freaking myself out trying to pick. I know my way around cameras very well, I can use any single one you might put in my hands and under 10 minutes I will figure it out usually. I am very smart and I know my way around Picture taking techniques and also a darkroom. I also wanna throw out there/brag about myself a bit that I have an IQ of 150...
I have been taking pictures for a long time now. My current camera is a Nikon P500. It has a great zoom and takes great pictures. It is time though to take the step up to a DSLR, I have been reading reviews and looking at the local stores and my head is ready to explode with all the different information I have gotten. I have narrowed it down to either the Nikon D5200 or the Pentax K50. I mostly take landscape/city pictures, some sports and fast action shots also. I would like to get into...
I was reading a review of a Pentax K-50 and it said that HDR mode introduced halo's into the image, that is a pet hate of mine, how good is the D7100 in HDR mode, does it avoid this halo issue and does anyone have picture examples of HDR mode they can share, preferably ones which have not gone through Photoshop. --M
Hello I'm a pentax shooter. I'm still using my K10D, although rarely, with prime lenses (31 & 77 Lims). In the last years I had very little time for photography, and I found compact cameras more comfortable for snapshots and traveling light. Not to mention that they make movies - and since I'm a father (four years since) ... this become an essential usage of a camera (before that, I didn't consider at all filming capabilities of a camera). In the last few month, after my compact Panasonix Lx3...
Hello, at the expense of being truly honest and putting it out there here I go. I thought I was ready for a DSLR type camera and so purchased a Pentax K-50. Well, one week into it and I am overwhelmed and realizing I need way more time to learn about photography; something I do not have. So onward I go. For wildlife pictures, hunting, kids action, stills, low light, outdoors adventure travel; I need something. My eyes are going crazy comparing model after model. down to a couple..please help....
I have not decided for sure whether to purchase a K-50, but I am leaning towards it. Do any of y'all know if the following lenses will work with the K-50 and if they of good enough quality to be worth using? 1) Vivitar 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5 MACRO 2) SMC Pentax-M 50mm 1:2 3) Vivitar 135mm 1:2.8 Thanks
I was wondering where does Pentax fit in the dslr line up? 3rd, 4th, or 5th etc.? After viewing the gallery(from a preproduction K50) and seeing what the line-up can really do I think Pentax is a real sleeper. If a really good FF were introduced it would vault them up a few notches. Coming form Oly and canon my K5II is better than most of them. Comments?
