  • Well, I used the Mac version early on and there were so many issues with it I finally gave up on it. I downloaded the new Mac Photo Studio to test out and can say that they have eliminated most of ...
  • Another alternative is to use Darktable software (free) and use the developed settings for film looks. DXO is another alternative. Also, OnOne has film look options as well.
  • I hear your frustrations as I too wish Pentax would do certain things they are not now doing...however, I imagine that this forum only represents a very small segment of their market worldwide. ...
  • I have noticed that my older IMac has now started not showing when to take the SD card out of the slot when I finish uploading. Don't know if this is due to the newest OS upgrade or not?  Anyway, ...
  • AA batteries have saved me more than once while in the wilds. I agree for day shooting there usually is not a problem.  I like having the option though.
  • Thanks for the suggestions. I like DXO in general although it does have some things missing I enjoy such as a slide program for viewing images automatically. I know I can go to full screen and ...
  • I have been experimenting with DXO 11 to see how I like it. To date, I still use Corel's AfterShot Pro 3 for quick editing of my images. It still is the fastest PP I have used to date, Then, ...
  • I have had both the K-01 and a Canon M for a short period of time. Since I owned the Canon M newer models have been updated, especially for AF and speed.  While I liked both, the Canon was easier ...
  • I wish Pentax would have continued with the AA option as is on the Pentax K50.
  • Agreed!  I will check out those Eneloop AA pros. Thanks!
  • Very nice image, indeed!
  • Price was the main factor. It would have cost me another $200 or so to get the KS-2, etc. Plus, I was familiar with the K50 having used one for some time. I already had some extra batteries, remote ...
  • Created discussion thread Return to Pentax
    Yesterday I bit the bullet and bought another Pentax K50. My first K50 experienced the treaded aperture problem and was put to rest a few years ago. Anyway, I needed a weather resistant camera/lens ...
  • Hello Mike, I too miss Aperture and wish Apple would have continued to support it. Anyway, what I did was to switch to AfterShot Pro3 and Picktorial 3.0 Both of these programs can read your ...
  • I bought an Olympus EPL-7 for taking with me on my bicycle rides. It is small and packs easily in a small bag I have on a back rack. I have been very pleased with my purchase.
  • My main PP software is AfterShot Pro3; I then use Darktable  for select processing of an image. For special stuff, Affinity Photo.
  • As for the EVF I cannot address whether or not you would like it. As for me, having used Pentax's wonderful viewfinder and EVF's on both Olympus & Panasonic I can tell you they are different for ...
  • Lawrence, I have the Olympus EPl-7 and the OM-D 10 cameras and both have been dust free. Missing the weather resistance of Pentax cameras, I have thought about getting the OM-D-EM5ii myself.  I ...
  • All I know  is that when I had my Pentax K50 (which I enjoyed) it had the worst dust problem of any camera I have ever owned. Finally, the dreaded aperture failure happened and put it out of its ...
  • I for one would welcome a built-in espresso maker as I cannot tell you how many times I have risen early in the morning to go out and shoot images. Those mornings I would very much enjoy a cup of ...
