  • Replied in Irix lenses...
    Thank you Dominique! This is good to know. I'll still wait a bit to see what Pentax announces at CP+... I'd prefer something not as extremely wide and with AF, but it's still a very attractive option.
  • I'm trying to find the flash duration of your flash. Mine is 1/1558 sec at full power, which should freeze almost anything in mormal photography (ie not stopping bullets shot through apples).
  • The flange distance has not changed. But the AF system is much more precise. Furthermore, a hard infinity stop on a lens can be calibrated, and it's possible that such micro-differences could be ...
  • Replied in Don Quixote?
    Don Quixote?
  • I filed a complaint. It is painfully apparent that we need active moderators on this forum.
  • if you say so... you mean other than Sony? Sure! I mean since you're at it anyway, might as well get paid for it, twice! ;)
  • correct i think what i find strange is that the flash should freeze the action independently of any shake, especially shutter shake as it's low frequency. But i'm interested in trying to get to the ...
  • efcs stands for electronic first curtain shutter. When enabled, there is no physical blades made of aluminium/titanium/carbon or even cloth going down to start the exposure. That's why it's called ...
  • the keyword there was "using a shutter". From my personal shots at the "sensitive shutter speeds" shooting normally using the viewfinder, without flash or mlu or tripod, i can attest that the K-1 ...
  • The FW is just announced, it will be available next week. But something here is wrong, the flash duration should only be 1/10000 sec or so with studio flashes. This is as close as i have been to a ...
  • There's no need for rudeness on this forum. I always give newcomers to this forum the benefit of doubt, but in this case i'll agree with Dale's assessment, regarding stirring things up. But to ...
  • Replied in K-1: for whom?
    it's been sold out since day 1. So for Pentax standards , it must be a success. I can't imagine a company putting, for example, 7000 apples on the market, selling them all for asking price on day ...
  • True, but unnecessarily harsh citicism i think. I like some of the pics, from an artistic perspective, some of the compositions, even the motion blur, it could have been purposeful. Indeed the op ...
  • I am so jealous! Looking forward to some pics of this historic meeting!
  • Congratulations, well deserved!
  • Regarding the X1D styling, i prefer the classic silver to the black, it screams Hassy medium format (6x6 in fact).
    As for the prototype, i like the idea, having shot film cameras with similar...

  • Love it, congrats! I remember when you first posted this picture!  ;)
  • I agree with the busy bokey. But bushes with small leaves can be torture torture. The images do pop though, in most the horse and rider seem to jump right at you coming over the hurdle. I've seen ...
  • Experience is not lacking in this forum. Try the K3 with your old 50 and 135mm lenses, see how you like it. The K-1 competes with the D750 and A7 series. Also, the lenses you have are entry-level. ...
  • Very nice! Looks like the lens to have for these events!
