My wife and I are visiting London and Edinburgh mid September. This trip is for pleasure and we've not been across the big pond before.

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...

I purchased a K-x , and I want to try to use my old Spotmatic lenses....BUT, some of them have become sticky - not frozen, but not as fast as they once were, or not opening fully.I already have the M42 to K adapter, and my 35mm works fine. So everything is set, but those sticky vanes need help...How much of a risk is it to try to open the back of the lens to get to the mechanism ?

So I have just recently gotten into photography and started learning about it. I fully plan on moving from AUTO mode & have already started to do so. A few months ago I purchased my 1st camera, a Sony NEX-F3. I really liked that I can use so many different lenses with it (via adapters) along with the increasing lineup of E-mount lenses. I also wasn't sure whether or not I was ready to go for a DSLR. So I made the purchas.Lately I've been considering adding one of the enthusiast P&S's such as...

Hello,I've been consistently searching for a while now and I'm overwhelmed by the vast amount of Point and Shoot cameras that are out there. It's been a long time since I've owned a point and shoot, and when I did it was a cheap Fujifilm "back in the day". Now I own an entry level Pentax KX DSLR.. I am looking for a point and shoot because I am going to be serving an LDS mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I would love to capture as many photos as possible and I want them to be quality.In...

Just got a nice, used, blue Pentax K-x kit from ebay for $296. Works fine. Looks like new. I plan to read the manual cover-to-cover, but can anyone tell me right off how to disable the auto review feature after I take a picture? I can't find it in the index and it isn't obvious to me in the menu palettes.Also, I've been scanning ebay for used Pentax lenses. What do some of these designations mean? PKA. SMC. DAL. WR. Albinar. Takumar. I went ahead and bought a used Pentax 50-200. Seems like...
