  • Replied in ISO 850K
    i agree with Triplet here also. Imagine an iso 800k shot in a dark night club in monochrome ..... small to  medium print... acceptable? Ive seen people using iso 6400 on a k3 and saying what a ...
  • There is no need to defend anything. Pentax are what they are and very good at it .... mostly amatuer, mostly landscapes street and the occasional foray into BIF and airshows where the AF system is ...
  • Replied in Being clear
    The thing is Gary, i wasnt.... Im talking about the odd one at 1.8 or 2 but 2.8 and 3.2 Give me an a7rii or an oly em5 with eye focus and it will lock everytime. Canikon will do better as well....
  • Thanks, but at the time the kitchen downlights in the dim kitchen greeted me with this image and the surrounding area wzs just a kitchen. It adds mood and the clients are well aware of the ...
  • Replied in Being clear
    Haha, might need to in an attempt to change my mind.... mainly talking about focusing on faces at weddings here and at wide apertures where its a real mission.
  • Replied in Being clear
    Kp is one of Pentax's best cams yet especially considering its category. No argument. Pentax's image quality is some of, if not the best when it works. But: Nicely crafted, weather sealed cameras ...
  • None of which helps or matters when you cant get the shot because the AF is not good enough. No camera falls apart when made in reasonable quality platic aka canon just feels a bit cheaper. Weather ...
  • I agree with people that not everyone is concerned with video, but I tried the k1 at a wedding and it was garbage... held still its ok, but as soon as you move its glitchy.... The Kp is a step in ...
  • Donald. Yes, the A7rii has a similar system and anything helps.....
  • Created discussion thread Shooting wide aperture at weddings
    Hi folks. Here from Pentax land and i shoot a few paid weddings part time and been photographing for many years. When Pentax gear works, the image quality is awesome but.... Getting the archaic ...
  • +1 Not wanting to pour cold water on the enthusiasm here and that the Kp is a step in the right direction bit i also looked at the test with the same thoughts..... is this really a test or easy ...
  • Thanks Interesting assessment on the 5D. Not long ago I used a sub contractor and she provided me with jpeg files, which when pixel peeped were easily beaten by my crop Pentax. However as a tool, ...
  • Thanks Sure is ........  with Pentax at least, but in general I think so. This could work well for weddings, but I wouldn't always need it. We took 1500 images as it was, so I don't want too many ...
  • Thanks, The shoes shot is indicative of their love of 4WD touring in their big Nissan, so i try and incorporate peoples passions and motivation in my shoots
  • Created discussion thread Wedding with 50mm ...??
    I have often heard people mention using primes at weddings and wondered...... how on earth could you use one when you needed such versatility ? I decided to start with the 50mm f1.4 Sigma on the K1 ...
  • You'll know by my camera line up that i shoot with Sony sensors.... But a recent wedding i shot had a lot of guests and i used a sub contractor with 2 x canons above. As well as my k1, my two crop ...
  • Not a Sony user, rather Pentax and use their DSLRs for weddings. Im stooging around the Sony forum because the A7rii eye focus seems like a very ussble tool.... I use both Pentax genuine and a ...
  • Chris, Stunning images!! So reminiscent of those old colour prints we use to see, well done and could be a good seller if you wanted to print for the train spotters.
  • Its a sign of things to come. It shows how far weve come and where we are going. Still has potential uses but in not too many years will be an accepted high iso shooting range. Pixel shift is not ...
  • Regardless ........ they are exceptionally good. If they are RAW converted are we really going to see a massive difference. Sure there is jpeg smoothing but the results in general from this sensor ...
