  • I have the KP and k3 and I always take the KP when I'm going somewhere.  The third wheel is great for bracketing or iso control.  High ISO pics are quite a bit cleaner and the tilting screen is ...
  • Replied in Waterfalls
    There are times when I really miss the k10d - it had a look and punch to colors that I think is of a slightly different flavor compared to the cmos sensors of today. Nice shot!
  • Wow, looks like an amazing experience to be in those vintage planes. I bet there were less smudges on those windows than on a commercial airline!  All in all, the pics look great considering... Tha ...
  • This is a well thought out decision and I think I'm in line with your use case - I'll be signing up for my upgrade.
  • Replied in Windmills
    "Slightly Older" lol.  Love the balance of the reeds /plants on the right with the windmills.  Very nice B&W!
  • Replied in Windmills
    Thanks for the comments and suggestions!  Most of these images have been converted to B&W and I do like them a lot but I wanted to post a variety.  I've yet to try slower shutter speeds with ...
  • Replied in Windmills
    Oooh, gorgeous light on that shot! Yeah, you never know what they will do over here now, but from a photography and a engineering point of view I think they are pretty amazing.   They are so tall ...
  • Created discussion thread Windmills
    Seems like I've been taking a lot of pictures with windmills in them lately. They are such a stark contrast to the land around them and yet they seem to me to make it interesting to see them ...
  • Ooooh, that is a SPECIAL combination there.  Probably one of my most used lenses on the K1 and top 3 on my APS-C bodies. I remember when I first got it, I was not comfortable with the focal length ...
  • Fantastic examples of what that lens can do!
  • Looking forward to seeing your photos.  I'll be upgrading my k1 klassic
  • Thanks for explaining the movements to get certain effects!
  • I've found the KP to be a great addition to my kit and I would happily use this as a primary rig if I had to (and in fact because it is smaller and lighter, I do use it more often than the K1, but ...
  • Created user review thread Great Travel Light Camera
    After owning the Pentax K-1 for close to a year and learning to appreciate its graces, I found there were some features that I missed when I switched to my  "travel light kit" APS-C set up - Pixel ...
  • Thanks for continuing this thread so we can share all these great flower shots! Here's one of my favorites over the last few weeks (great that spring has sprung in the great North West! KP, iso ...
  • Awesome, nice shot!  I've always liked that lens even on aps-c.  Good pseudo macro capabilities, good sharpness, and in a small size.  And of course 2.8 always helps... Congrats!
  • I agree that the k5ii or k5iis are great cameras and my k5iis received a lot of usage up until I sold it to a friend when I purchased the KP.  One thing to keep in mind though is that the new ...
  • Sorry, only been using constant lights lately.  But I should give the 540 a try soon.
  • After seeing the benefits of pixelshift  on my K-1 for architectural and landscape photography, I wanted an aps-c version for when I was traveling a bit lighter.  I also found that with my aging ...
  • I think that this video makes the best case for the KP so far.  I've been using mine for a few months now and I think it's really good especially when I want to travel light.  Add the da15, da40, ...
