I thought I used to be able to get ISO 200 on my Pentax K-x digital SLR. Now only auto ISO 400 shows as lowest number. I can't seem to change. I must have pushed the wrong button one day to set the camera to this but have no idea what I did or how to change it. Any ideas

I have an older Pentax K-x body which is obviously not very valuable now, and a couple APS-c cheap entry lenses in the 18-55 and 50-200 ranges. But I also have  a nice FA 1:1.4 50mm and a Sigma 1:1.8 EX DG 28m Macro.  I think both of these are decent lenses, someone correct me if I am wrong, full frame lenses. My daughter needs  a bigger lens for her highschool yearbook work. I am in a quandary as to my options.  I'd like to buy a good 50x500mm zoom in the $1500 range, but I cannot decide if...

Hello there, the case is basically quite simple. I started my photography-life with a Olympus C8080 Wide-Zoom. Then after some years I progressed to a Pentax K-X..including two kit-lenses and a third one for general use. I was a bit lazy with the pentax and relied heavily on Automatic Mode…and then sold the camera. Now I have a Sony RX100, with which I am really, really satisfied. And also I adjusted myself to either manual mode, or other the “P” mode to check what the cam would suggest. What...

Hi All, I have been using an Canon SX130IS p&s for more than 2 years & now looking for an DSLR. I'm from Sri Lanka and the DSLR market in Sri Lanka is dominated by Canon & Nikon(about 99%) I have a very limited budget & have found 2 options that I like. New Nikon D3100 - about $450 - (A good used one can be found for about $350 in Sri Lanka) Used Pentax K-x - about $250 (Is in good condition, bought from US in 2012, shutter count - 7500) My main usage is for casual shooting & to use it in...

Please review my gallery images of a hot air balloon festival in a northern Chicago suburb. http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7872229425/albums/1st-annual-festival-of-color Looking at a few of the last photos, the night shots, you can see pixels that are not the right colors.  The artifacts do not show in the daylight shots (that I see). What is the issue?  Is this fixable or pretty much time to replace? is ~23000 shutter count of concern? --MrThallidI currently take pictures, but I...

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...

Hi, One of my daughters attended a party where some photos were taken by to men. One was using a K-x the other one a K-5. I asked for the photos and got copies of their dng files. I want to proces them in lightroom 4. Are there any presets for these cameras I should be aware of?

I have a K-01 and would like to know if there is a focus adjustment in that body?  This is in reference to reading reviews of the Tamron 17-50 2.8 lens where reviewers were saying that they added +3 to a K-5 or -10 to a Kr to correct the focus with the Tamron lens.  Also indicated that the Kx body did not have that capability.  Any K-01 users out there using the Tamron 17-50?

I am photographing some close-ups of some electronic equipment. My camera is K-x and flash AF540FGZ. I use the AF540 as slave triggered by the flash on camera. Flash on camera acts as direct fill-in and the AF540 provides diffused light bounced from the ceiling. My problem: When I take a picture, the on camera flash pre-flashes, the slave flashes too, but when the on camera flash flashes for the actual exposure the slave flash (AF540) is off. AF 540 doesn’t support P-TTL flash in this...
