  • That last image is superb.  What is it? Philip
  • I have both K-5IIs and KP and regularly use them both (with a different lens on each).. Their ergonomics are different but being Pentax both are good, and I find no difficulty going from one to ...
  • It might be worth mentioning that the KP has a more efficient Pentax "Accelerator Unit" in its image processing electronics.  This is circuitry which helps to improve dynamic range and reduce ...
  • Wonderful location and images - thank you MR. Philip
  • I don't understand why Pentax is part of the discussion if there is no need for the size, weight and extra complexity of a pentaprism and mirror. Similarly. I don't understand why anyone would ...
  • Replied in More re Crops
    The specifications show only one raw file size.  Perhaps that, and this info from Kobie, might suggest that the camera always captures the raw data for the full APS-C frame, processes it, then ...
  • The limitations with these sorts of reviews are that they are personal, usually mainly subjective, and almost always of a sample of one (thus taking no account of sample variation). Firstly the ...
  • The trees seem more in focus than the child - perhaps check calibration. Philip
  • I no longer have a K-70 but I don't recall having any problem changing ISO (I use mainly Av Mode, or some P and some M). The only other suggestion that comes to mind is that, when the 4-way ...
  • ISO - top one of the 4 buttons on the 4-way controller at the back of the camera.
  • The most obvious and simple technology to include, to extend the photo opportunities and hence enjoyment of photography for many of us, is a movable rear screen in the K-3III. Philip
  • I haven't had a camera with aperture block failure but, if my understanding is correct, it doesn't affect auto focusing.  So if using an AF lens with an aperture ring (e.g. a Pentax-F or a ...
  • The less expensive DA 18-135 has always been good enough for me as a general purpose single lens solution, now on a KP.  It is very sharp in the central image circle (4000 px diameter reducing to ...
  • Yes! If we consider the rectangular box part of the cameras, the KP is about 1cm thicker (front to back) and 1cm taller than the MX.  If we then consider all the other electronic and ...
  • For anyone interested in taking photography beyond the snaps with a mobile phone, it should be expected that they will want all the controls easily available in an ergonomic box while they are ...
  • Replied in Rainproof?
    I haven't found any problems using Pentax WR gear in light rainfall. One note of caution - with long extension zooms (e.g. 55-300 WR) it is not wise to extend the lens rapidly, as the sudden ...
  • Are size, weight, and cost features which are important for you?  In all reviews the HD DA 11-18 f/2.8 is an excellent lens but I wouldn't consider it for me as it fails in all three factors. Philip
  • If your landscape shots are stationary scenes have you considered making composites?  Stitching 3 or more overlapping portrait oriented images could give a sub-20 mm wide-angle photo of high ...
  • Roughly one third of the image is featureless sky, so introducing the Moon into that void adds some interest and balance there for me. Philip
  • The tree is the attractive subject of the image and the crop is better but the barn remains as a distraction.  A step to the left at capture time would have put it behind the tree.  However, in ...
