Thank you, Zvonimir! I like deep analysis in your posts!


Hi Audrious,

With that yellowish cast on the K3 photo, I wonder if the SENt on it was set right.

I'm surprised, as you gear lit includes k30 you make this remark.

As you should be aware Pentax believe the image should represent what your eyes see as such under artificial light they do not correct to the point the cast is daylight but leave some of the original ambiance.

This is another 'adjustable' setting and personally I think Pentax get it right, When shooting under candles I hate that 'shot in midday sun' look every other manufacturer seems to think is reasonable.

I first saw that with my new smartphone on which the OP's K3 photo looked very yellowish.  I do know what and how my K-30 render indoor lighting but I thought that was still too yellowish from "what an indoor lighting condition looks like in my mind".

Now on my 22 in LCD screen the K3's photo do look more natural than the Canon and Nikon.

BTW, the K-30 Auto mode setting will give a warmer than "what it should be appearance".
