  • " If ". I suspect that the opinions of many people evolve over time. Mine did. It's a personal decision. I suspect that there are some here who would think that "late spring" is too late. (I would ...
  • In other words .... there is no evidence! That question of what people should allow for is personal. They may follow your advice and wait, even without a date. They may decide that there are limits ...
  • There is no evidence that today is a week or month before its release. People should choose a date in advance which represents the end of their patience. Then when that date arises, re-assess their ...
  • Replied in Sunrises
    Oh, some stunning photos! My favourites are #1, #2, #4, and #5. (In other words, the effect of the sun on the sides of buildings rather than "just" sky).
  • Te rational decision is to choose a time limit then act accordingly.
  • I love my Ricoh GRIII. An 18.3mm lens, with equivalent field of view to 28mm on FF. (With a macro feature). On my new (FF) system, one of my favourite lenses is a 35mm f/1.8 semi-macro prime. I ...
  • It's an obvious thing to say, but the best photographs are taken with the camera and lens combination that you have with you, rather than heavier and less convenient equipment that you've left at ...
  • We can hope that the K-New will be as fast as that. (Waiting for months is very frustrating! And I'm talking about another brand). Observation: Nearly everything I'm reading, and many of the photos ...
  • Replied in K-3 on Tripod
    Yes; it does appear to be an incompatible rip-off! I still have my 055C. I think I bought it in 2001. Pretty-well earthquake proof! (I remove the centre-column for out-door use to lighten it). I ...
  • Will it go from "announced" to "in photographers' hands" that fast? At the start of August I pre-ordered a camera that was announced at the start of July. I've just been informed that I should it ...
  • Yes. What you are (rightly) illustrating is that increasingly there are better alternatives to "conventional" interchangeable-lens cameras. Especially, but not only, for video. (I use my "carry ...
  • The problem for Ricoh/Pentax is that people do have choices: (1) Buy a different Pentax camera such as a KP or K-70. (2) Migrate to another system, ...
  • Replied in K-3 on Tripod
    This is probably a bit off-topic. I used to use the Manfrotto quick-release system. Now I've switched to ARCA throughout, for both cameras and lenses, on various heads (ball and gimbal), etc. The ...
  • Without seeing the specifications and kits it is impossible to say. I recently bought my Canon R FF mirrorless camera for £1219 from SRS Microsystems . SRS sell the Nikon Z 50 APSC mirrorless camera ...
  • Does anyone here have further information about this limited-access online event? (November 7th 2020). It is an official Ricoh online event Includes "Introduction of custom prototype model (release ...
  • As I clicked on more and more links from there, I eventually came to this: " The upcoming Pentax K APS-C DSLR flagship camera could be delayed " Dated 1st January 2020! One rumour or two? I haven't ...
  • I recently bought some film to use with my 50-year-old Spotmatics and lenses. I'll post photos if I take any worth showing.
  • Replied in K-3 on Tripod
    Yes. A remote is good for all sorts of reasons. (I have them for my Pentax cameras and my new camera). But I still typically use a 2-second (or more) delay for other reasons.
  • I'm glad you posted it! Good (well balanced) photo of a very strange creature.
  • Replied in K-3 on Tripod
    As has been pointed out, the manual says that setting 2-second delay automatically switches off IBIS (SR). (Try it). Yes, SR should be switched off. But davids8560 said "the self-timer set to two ...
