  • This thread has spurred me to complete my biking system - thanks! I have a removable rack pack (Topeak) large enough for a DSLR and second lens. The sides are relatively stiff. I riveted two ...
  • Brialliant!  Got a shot of the setup?
  • When you say "focal plane" you need to know for your lens whether it is flat or if there is some curve (common). Remember, as a matter of geometry, the distance from the lens to a range of ...
  • Consider changing your in-camera focus point to one closer to the eyes.  Also, consider experimenting with a model (anybody) to see where on a person you should focus to achieve the desired result ...
  • I've been doing this for years and have yet to settle on a fully functional strategy for the tripod. Camera and second lens reside in a rack pack behind the seat. I've used both clip and velcro ...
  • As I understand the criterion, the K1 is actually not expensive enough to include as MSRP at launch was under the $2k threshold - pretty funny!

  • Here are a few of the Spring flowers in my yard, nice to have a few sunny days to shoot them.  K1 and Tamron 90. Thanks for looking.
  • I have the Samyang 24 and the Rokinon 14; both work fine on the K1.  Either you have a setting issue or the lens is defective.
  • While the OP seems determined to write to both cards, given that writing the same info to both potentially doubles the buffer time (certainly easy enough to test) I'm curious as to why that is ...
  • Created discussion thread Happy Bee - K1 & DFA 28-105
    Caught this happy bumblebee in the Oregon Garden.  Pretty pleased with the close-up ability of the 28-105.  Modest crop. Happy Bee
  • Between two worlds yet still in both.  Not for long though, seems you've got the end of this chapter drafted.  Injury, recovery, loss, deep breath, and then crossing the road to the next chapter. ...
  • Lago Sabinicocha (you can see the tip in the pano) is about halfway between Cusco and Puno SE of Mt Asungate. I've trekked there several times, this trip from Corani to Tinqui skirting the ...
  • Thanks. The shale rolled over the hill so a few steps would not have mattered (more of the same). Plus, I thought it formed an interesting texture of its own adding to the DOF. The area is so vast ...
  • Here's one on its last run hauling weeds and flowers.  Yamhill Co. Oregon. Last Load
  • Created discussion thread Vicuna Pass Pano
    Panorama taken last fall of Peru's Vilcanota Range looking east from 17,000' Vicuna Pass towards the northern tip of Lago Sibinacocha.  A stark and wild area far from the nearest road.  10 shots ...
  • Between the two, go with the 18-135 which is optimized for the K70's APS-C sensor.  The 28-105 is a full frame lens and, while excellent quality, will leave you wanting a much wider end.  Use the ...
  • I assume that your intent is to use Zenfolio as cloud storage for your final processed version. I believe Photoshop will allow you to resave as a DNG which should be smaller. Otherwise just use a ...
  • Agree, Dan (this exact 3-lens kit is packed for a long weekend trip to Reno), though for me, the 20-40 is usually enough, especially for a pure walk-around.  After all, like many I started decades ...
  • Nice shots. The 20-40 rarely leaves my K5lls - seems like the perfect walk-around rig.
  • This mirrors my experience. My 16-50 SDM was repaired using the new part and failed just over a year later. Though technically out of warranty, Pentax covered the repair but wouldn't do so for the ...
