I have been looking at getting into photography for a while now. Since having my two sons and seeing my wife and grandma miss out on a lot of really great photos with regular PS cameras or their phones I am ready to take the plunge into uncharted territory. I'm sure you have all been asked a gazillion times about which one to choose and I know it's going to come down to what I mainly want to take photos of. With that being said I would mainly be taking photos of my family, wildlife around the...
Guys, I want to buy mid range SLR. From what I heard from my friend, Pentax is actually very good for lower price (especially the 2nd hand). In some countries, 2nd hand is only €400ish Now my question is, providing the price is the same, which 1 is better K-3 or 70D or D7100? I dont take video, and mostly I go take pictures in the city How about the lens quality, for example I like my friend's Sigma 18-35 Art on Canon, how is the Pentax premium lenses in comparison with Sigma Art series,...
With all the major advances in still camera video capabilities being talked about of late, I am starting to wonder which, if any, of my cameras would be best at capturing video? Because I really never use that feature. Here are my current cameras: Pentax K-3 Sony NEX-7 Olympus Stylus 1 Canon SX50 HS Panasonic LF-1 I've heard the NEX-7 is good at video, but that its sensor can't take the heat. But other than that, I don't know. One time I videotaped a short dance performance with the SX50...
Hey, First of I was just about to ditch my Pentax gear and change to Olympus. Im quite disappointed with my K5iis even though its a great camera. The autofocus is just not working for me as well as id like it to and the size of the camera meant i could never really take in anywhere. So obviously the next close thing would be the Olympus em5 and with the mark 2 coming out I thought that would be the way to go. I just don't really want to sell all my beloved Pentax gear and the original em5 is...
Something has really struck a positive chord in the look of the k-3 silver edition lately for me. For anyone that has one, how does it look in the flesh? I get a little spooked thinking it might actually have the painted plastic look of an old silver Canon Rebel vs. looking more refined and metal, which I think is the intent. The new Olympus EM5m2 reviews showing their silver body go me thinking about it, as they say it really feels premium in the hand. Does the silver K3 add anything to the...
Hi folks, I'm having a difficult time choosing between the A77 ii with the standard/kit 18-55 and 55-300 lenses, the D7100 with the 18-55mm VRII and the 70-300mm VR lenses or the Pentax K-3 with the 18-55 WR and the 55-300 HD WR a77ii pros of the A77 are the 12fps shooting cons: battery life shorter than the Other 2 K3 pros: rugged body, 8fps,, great IQ cons: lens support, more and more third parties like Sigma and Tamron are stopping producing lenses with a K mount.haven't found a fairly...
Hello all, One of my friends in a local photography group has a vast collection of M42 lenses. He was kind enough to tell me that I can borrow his lenses anytime. The issue is that I did not find an easy way to juggle between M42 lenses and my own K-mount lenses. Internet research told me that the adapter has to be attached on to camera first in order to mount M42 lens. So I have to perform a small surgery on my K-3 every time I want to juggle between M42 and K-mount lenses. I also read...
Over at IR they state its between the K-50 and the K-3. Where is it compared to the K-5ll and the K-5lls? Those new features: tilt and swivel, Wi Fi, auto HDR, etc. would have looked nice on the K-5lls. I guess we'll have to wait and see some images from the sensor. What say you?
