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...

Hi all, Just curious, can you use an adapter (fotodiox, etc) to mount a Nikon lens to a Pentax body? Assuming you lose AF capability, but: 1) Do these adapters work? 2) Any major risk of damage to either the lens or the camera body? 3) If you have used Nikon lenses with a Pentax body successfully, do you have any images available to share?  Curious as to how good the end results are as far as IQ. 4)  Who makes the best adapters for this?  I've only seen the ones by Fotodiox so far. Not sure...
