anware's recent activity

  • Is it actually giving different meter readings with the different lenses, or is the meter reading the same but the resulting exposure different? My Sigma 10-20 underexposes by about 1 stop so I ...
  • Hence my suggestion a couple of posts back to remap a body button to toggle viewfinder illumination on and off.....
  • I don't there's anything else you can do - I suspect we use the camera in different focus modes. I always use AF mode SEL5 because I choose which focus point is active. I then move the active focus ...
  • I've mentioned this here on the forums and it's my biggest gripe with the K-3 iii. A future firmware change may make things a little better but there's no fix - you just can't see the active focus ...
  • Thanks. The Sigma 17-50 was actually a second hand lens to me when I finally got fed up of the poor mechanical build quality of the Pentax DA* 16-50 SDM (I never had any SDM issues with it, nor my ...
  • Replied in keep in mind
    John - I know all that and I hoped my irony would come across, but apparently not. The post was aimed at the OP who seems to think a flagship camera must have every possible feature ever designed ...
  • Replied in Flagship?
    I guess that newly announced Canon EOS R3 isn't a flagship camera, though we need to tell DPReview since they seem to think it is according to the first paragraph in their Initial Review. - No GPS ...
  • Replied in Flagship?
    Not this old nonsense yet again. Just because the camera doesn't have some features you might need (or think you might need) doesn't mean it can't be called a flagship or doesn't meet the needs of ...
  • K-3 iii with XPro P trigger here - Godox AF assist light doesn't work. Without the trigger attached the internal body AF assist light works and I can't see any obvious menu setting that would stop ...
  • Thanks Tom. I have two other edits of all the images (there are over eighty in total); one a fairly simple mono conversion and the other emulating a 1930s emulsion. A few of the images work well ...
  • A selection from an afternoon and evening at the Earl of Doncaster Art Deco hotel with a Peaky Blinders theme.
  • Replied in 1920s Art Deco
    From a shoot last Sunday at an authentically themed Art Deco hotel. The problem with Art Deco is that it uses a lot of mirrors and highly reflective surfaces, so some work has been done to reduce ...
  • The face/eye detection does work well - when there is one face in the scene. If there are multiple faces at different distances from the camera the camera won't always choose the one that I want. A ...
  • I almost exclusively set the active focus point manually. The camera doesn't know where in the frame I want to be in focus, so letting it choose the focus point results in too many ...
  • Taken with my first Pentax D-SLR - the *ist DS way back in 2007. Shot through a thankfully clean aircraft window somewhere over the Alps on a flight back from Italy. To this day I've never seen ...
  • I haven't been able to find a compelling use for S.fn dial and button. I've now reduced it to only selecting the drive mode which seems a waste. Anything else it can do is either a setting I never ...
  • I haven't noticed any differences going from a K-3 to a K-3 iii in  any mode with my flash gear (all Godox) but my first thought is that the sync speed could be an issue for you. The sync speed on ...
  • Thank you, Holger. The camera was tripod mounted with the 2 second timer used, so the in-body image stabilisation was turned off. My Sigma lens has no image stabilisation - as far as I am aware ...
  • Sandtoft Trolleybus Museum just outside Doncaster in Yorkshire, UK. Two ex Huddersfield Trolleybuses.
  • Technique obviously has a large impact on the focus/tracking ability and doing whatever you can to improve your chances is key. The K-3 iii also has a lot of new menu options we've never seen ...
