  • Yes, sticky aperture blades/lever I reckon: Camera tells lens to stop down to say f8 but lens doesn't stop down correctly and you get over exposure. I have a Tamron 28-75 that tends to do this in ...
  • Ha Ha, (4)5379 was built in 1937, its current livery is as it was in 1957
  • One from 3pm New Year's eve
  • I got an unexpected present yesterday:- my entry to the "DX sensor ANFD High ISO" challenge won that challenge!. Now to my mid ISO 2500 is not that high, but the rules said ISO 1600 and above, so ...

  • Replied in pentax 60-250
    I have used a K3 and 60-250 combo handheld at night and have been happy with the results. ISOs moly 4000-8000. A monopod helps but ibis works quite well even at the long end https://flic.kr/p/L7T6w4
  • Absolutely. I haven't time to load pictures to all the sites I read or post to, so I use FlickR and link to that. DPR has not been my main photo info site for a long time, although I still read ...
  • My first DSLR in 2009 came with a plastic cap to protect the contacts on the battery, but none of the ones I have bought since, all Pentax, nor the many extra batteries (OEM and 3rd party) have had...

  • They are not unrealistic to my eyes, I thin you've processed them nicely
  • The pillar drill and the Flying Banana work well. A bit of increase in micro contrast and definition. I'd forgotten that the KESR had a GWR railcar!
  • I've got several MF cameras but they use film. I have an extensive APS-C DSLR system. I have several other digital cameras with sensors from 1" down. I don't have a smartphone, but then I am ...
  • Thanks for sharing, IQ looks pretty good to me. I have one of these lenses waiting a K1 in 6 months or so.....

  • I use a Tamron 28-75 on a K3. I find it quite an inconsistent in autofocus. 7 times out of 10 it is fine, but then it will reel off a run of out of focus images.  I have used micro-focus adjust ...
  • My phone doesn't have a camera
  • Not if you like panning.....
  • Replied in K1
    Definite thumbs up for SRS Microsystems -you can buy via their website, or order over the phone or even use their eBay shop. I have bought new, ex-demo and second hand from them with zero ...
