I've read here and elsewhere many things about the K-5 II vs K-5 IIs. It's confusing!!I want to upgrade from the K-7 to one of the above due to their reported high ISO performance, less noise, better dynamic range, better AF. www.dxomark.com has been helpful here.I shoot landscapes, sunsets, macro, events and family portraits. i keep post processing to a minimum (am still getting a handle on it). I don't envisage enlargements beyond 16 x 20. I'm looking to put myself out there in a more...
We are considering buying my children a microscope for Christmas. I figured if we are going to do that, we should get one that I can readily hook my K7 up to for fun.I think my best bet is a trinocular stereo microscope. I think one with LED illumination makes sense because I worry about the heat from halogens (snowflake photography, for instance, would be fun).I want to be sure I buy a microscope that I can readily mount my K7 to, but I'm running out of time, so I'm turning to the community...
Hi everyone, My K7 is getting a little long in the tooth and I am considering getting a K5II or IIs. I have a couple of spare D-Li90 batteries for the K7 that I would like to continue to use in a new K5II or K5IIs as back ups. Does anyone know if the K7 D-Li90 is compatible with the knew K5II or IIs? Thanks in advance.
Hello,Could I ask for your opinion on the following:The mode dial and Metering mode switch lever on my K-7 are no longer turning properly. They need to be pushed hard to move as if something sticky was preventing the mode dial to turn.Is there a way to fix this issue on my own or is it best to send the camera to the Pentax dealer?Thanks in advance for your feedback.Best regards,
Does anyone know why the .pef raw files from the K-7 have missing (zero) levels in the original (unmapped) data ?This seems to be independent of ISO, every 7th or 8th histogram bin appears to be zero.Raw Histogram 0-128 bins Plotted with RawDigger. RawAnalyze shows the same effect.The original .pef file is at https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bzp4tAu_4Sv5TW9IdnlpcC1lZVUI've searched through the forums but no-one seems to have noticed this before.Thanks.
The basics: I've had much time behind a camera, not so much in front of a screen, a little time with ACR . I shoot RAW, landscape, macro, portraits, functions (sometimes lots of images), sunsets.The gear: Pentax K-7 (maybe a K-5II?) and fast glass etc. Macbook Pro 17", Aperture3 - hardly used yet.The goals: Sort out my image filing/management. Develop an efficient workflow from card to basic adjustments to more complex editing, output/backups.It seems from reading these forums and other...
