  • Yes, you are right - the travel zoom market is big - the new Nikon P1000 is amazing and a colleague has the previous P900 and his moon shots astound me - they are what I used to shoot through ...
  • Most young people (and I mean at least 99%) do not want any camera other than their phone for social media - even some of the biggest accounts on instagram are entirely done with phone cameras - ...
  • Hi, Yes I agree with you - I cant say I like the k1 more because I havent used the mk II update version. And yes i agree with you that I should give more respect to the opinions of those who have ...
  • ...those who have the mk II are of course convinced it is better. I dont think the images are better than K1 - I accept the AF must be better. There is plenty of evidence out there of the mk II nr ...
  • Do it all in camera if you want to go that way - composite mode, you can choose ten or whatever images and then only shoot 6 or 7 times and you will still get the composite and see your results ...
  • Nice walk (: Nice combo, still my fav - lost my k3 to a rogue wave and then sold my 18-135 which I dearly regret. Please post more images - looks like a beautiful part of the country! cheers Brett
  • My phone is android 7.1.1 purchased 2016 - Z3 and my ipad is old but up to date with new releases. Image sync works great on both - in fact last year when I has having to live in a different city ...
  • Well I arent selling my Pentax gear or changing systems (I've owned and used panasonic mirrorless for over a decade and was on the panny forum years before the Pentax) But I am sick to death of the ...
  • Regardless: I have never had a camera failure writing to cards or any sort of electronic failure other than a camera system freezing up and fine after a shut off then on on first fw. i have had two ...
  • ...and when your card fails - as has happened to me twice - your probability data is way off!
  • I have had two sdxc cards fail on me and cant understand why they havent put two slots. Yes it has some good building blocks but the larger mount will mean close to Pentax weight fast lenses - and ...
  • ...but it has serious AF issues (well the Z7 not sure Z6) - like if it was a pentax it would be written off ;) Also the Z6 has a 24mp sensor! Cheers' Brett
  • Replied in Fa 43mm
    I shoot under fluro every week for work, usually with the FA77 and FA31, often with the 15-30 and have never had an issue with focusing using my K1 (mk1) so am not sure what you are making your ...
  • I only skim read but I did watch the DPR tv first hand on review - neither seem to get into the poor AF, not like Tony and Chelsea Northrup did - maybe DPR doesnt think the Z should be used at...

  • have been using select area small, hoping that once I lock onto target any small movements will be tracked - no use if focusing and recomposing. Have recently gone back to centre point only as was ...
  • When people are moving around, even if modeling, keeping your thumb on the back button in caf seems totally right to me (wide open). With the K1 I don’t always worry about turning the camera ...
  • Yeah those Oly shots are really nice Mike. And a good example of why I like shallow dof in portraits.
  • Well tbh I went through them again just now and there are a couple of others that arent quite on the button but close enough to miss until zoomed in (was too late to change post). My focusing ...
  • Its interesting - I just watched Tony Northrup say the Sony ARIII eye detect gets it about a third of the time LOL - I mean thats just not enough for me to warrant using it - I had a count up of ...
  • Yep - all good - it is my choice to buy Pentax - and while I do expect star designated lenses to be tested at manufacture (each and every one of them) I can see that I wont be spending this kinda ...
