Confused of Malvern's recent activity

  • A beautiful shot - very well done.  Like you, I'd love a K1 but for the moment I still can't fault the results from my K5
  • An excellent shot. Which 10 stop filter were you using? I've got a Hitech one at the moment that I'm looking to replace because it causes a definite colour shift.  It doesn't look as those your's ...
  • An excellent set of images.  Thanks for sharing
  • Not a great deal wrong with those shots - certainly nothing to worry about in terms of the lens.  I particularly like the second shot although the tree on the left isn't perfectly in focus. I'm not ...
  • Thank you, Spyros
  • Thanks, JensR. I appreciate the detailed feedback I'll give it another go, next time I'm on the hills. Yes, you're right. I think I was getting too carried away with stitching a wide panorama. ...
  • Thanks David.  Yes, 720nm
  • Thank you.  I appreciate your comments.  I was quite pleased with them too :-)
  • Created photo thread Infrared Panoramas
    Three panoramas taken during a walk on the Malvern Hills earlier this week using my old GX20 which has been converted to infrared and the DA21mm and DA40mm lenses Comments and critiques welcome

  • Replied in K5 Upgrade?
    Thanks for sharing your experience, gnath - very helpful
  • Replied in Many thanks
    Thanks for all the useful comments and views - much appreciated I'm tending to the conclusion that maybe I should just be content with my K-5 until perhaps Pentax introduce a new top end APSC camera. ...
  • There is no one approach that is more correct than others...some people prefer to go for a 'purist' approach with grey cards, spot metering and AE lock but, except in the most extreme lighting ...
  • Created discussion thread K5 Upgrade?
    Is it worth upgrading from my K5 to a K3, if I can get a good used one at a sensible price? I've been perfectly happy with my K5 and I held off upgrading sooner whilst I invested in lenses instead. ...
  • OK, the better way to achieve long exposures without having to use such a very small aperture would be to use a neutral density (ND) filter
  • Diffraction is a characteristic of the sensor size, when used with lenses at small apertures. I don't think diffraction is the issue with these shots.  Whilst f13 is getting towards the limit, I ...
  • So, you're not a Pentax fan then?  Fine.  Go buy something else.  I don't see why you feel the need to have a rant about it
  • Tom The green button has nothing to do with auto focus.  The green button is connected to metering/exposure and is used to take a meter reading in M mode or, when using either the Green (auto) mode ...
  • Thank you for your kind comments, Larry
  • Thank you, Jim.  Yes, the K5 still does the business.  I keep wondering whether there would be any advantage in upgrading to a K3 (there have been a number of second hand ones available since the ...
