  • Landscape photography is something i'm still learning.  And I don't know your system or lens. With that caveat, I've been using my 100mm macro lens a lot lately.  A friend took a landscape photo ...
  • I like No. 1; she has great skin, and the tones come out nicely here. No. 2 has potential, but the blue cast (I forget what this is called in Nik; moon-something?) doesn't work for me.  You might ...
  • I've been using 2400mAH batteries, which improve recharge times over the 1900s I was using.  That's with the Shanny and Godox flashes.  Possibly things would be better with a more expensive flash, ...
  • Replied in Pre flash
    Thanks for these thoughts.  Your explanation makes a lot of sense to me. I have been using my TTL flash more often, and one of my closest friends has been blinking me to death lately.  I will go ...
  • Mike, Which extension tubes do you use?  I see the Kenko tubes online, but and a few others, but am not really conversant with the functional differences to know what might work best. Despite ...
  • Replied in Pre flash
    Tactic, I've seen references to auto-thrysistor mode, but never got a clear explanation for how it worked.  Thanks!  Do you know why this has evidently been superseded by pre-flash for TTL?  It ...
  • Thanks to both of you.  I did a quick search for the Pentax extension tubes, which are listed as discontinued on one site, but are probably available somewhere.  I'll keep thinking about both options.
  • Oh, I have two flashes - the Godox TT600 manual and the Shanny FGZ600 TTL.  They both work well, and the Godox is cheap.  I do not believe you can use the TTL Godox flash with Pentax TTL.  And, you ...
  • I am glad to see that things have turned around on this. I happen to love the film-era Limited lenses. I think they focus quickly enough, but the mechanical sound can be a little distracting (I ...
  • https://www.amazon.com/Venus-Laowa-Ultra-Macro-Pentax-mount/dp/B013TP697A/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1505320251&sr=1-2-fkmr1&keywords=laowa+2x+macro+pentax I've noticed this lens a ...
  • I'm using "shake" simply to convey the reality that you're going to have an easier time keeping things centered at 24mm than 600mm. I don't shoot video, so it's possible I've simply overlooked...

  • As to your first question, yes it stays in focus as the lens retracts back to 24mm. Not really sure about your zoom question - but no, it doesn't seem to move around (of course, things shake...

  • The RX!0 III has a Bulb setting.

  • Replied in B+W
    That is odd.  My k-1 doesn't do that.  On import, the DNG  file is *briefly* B+W (when i've set it that way), but once LR fully renders it, it snaps back into color, never to be B+W again.  You're ...
  • Replied in How
    Batdude, Clearly, this has been a star-crossed experience. What you describe simply isn't my experience at all - I shoot people walking by on the street all the time, no problem. My friends' kids, ...
  • Here are a few.  They were shot at 1/1250, ISO 1600, F3.5 (not sure if the EXIF data will show up). Rereading what I wrote yesterday, I said something that doesn't make sense.  I wrote that I ...
  • Replied in Break
    Miles, I was surprised to read that you rarely use your Limiteds now that you're dialed into the 24-70.  It's the Limiteds that kept me from buying that lens as a possible upgrade on the 28-105 ...
  • Two masters at work.

  • Perhaps. It would significantly higher of most police officers killed in the line of duty didn't die in on-the-job car crashes.

    Less glibly, tensions are high, and I understand that police are...

  • Actually, jean pierre has a good point as it stands. Police departments simply do not do a good job of incorporating the reality of Second Amendment rights into their practices and procedures....
