About me:

To learn the art of photography from real photographers.
Edit, 1/26/2018 or 11 years after that first sentence. I have learned a lot. I have to say it was and still is a very fun journey. And I hope I am a real Photographer. I enjoy helping others with technical issues (as I can).

  • Replied in 652 vs 880
    Yes I should, thank you. My Pentax is good, not any funner than Kodak. I admire your collection (cameras), and dedication. See you around :-)
  • What magic did Kodak put into the P880. I can still pick it out. Its more 3D looking, natural colors. FWIW the P880 is highly hue accurate, and saturation is around 106% so just a bit over flat. ...
  • Replied in 652 vs 880
    Happy to see someone still at Kodak. Nice comparison.
  • Pentax as well. On the Pentax forum (which I am part of) people always complain about how long it takes Pentax to release a new dSLR. I always say its not really Pentax that controls that, its...

  • I see why your excited about the pics. Very nice, once in lifetime if ever pictures. I could see a ton of detail and your only posting it at 10MB. Now the PP of the others you want to show, have ...
  • If all your lens behave normal with the K-1 except the DFA 28-105, it's probably the DFA 28-105 that has a problem, almost assuredly. It may or may not be because of the environment on your trip. ...
  • " P.S. "Enough with the "No more Ricoh" / "No more Pentax" rumors: You heard it here folks. Can this be an end to the rumors once and for all, please? Ricoh once again confirmed its commitment to ...
  • Nice pictures, outdoor fun :-). The "50mm" , "plastic fantastic" really surprised me. I thought my old MF A 50mm f/1.7 was equal just no AF but manually focus. No no, nope, this is an improved ...
  • The only facts I know are from older service manuals. The manuals make checking the sealing, and placement a very important part of the job. Pentax engineers tell the tech to replace ones that are ...
  • Pentax is Fuji want to be for cameras IMO WR, Tough, but Fuji is not much more than a circuit board and whatever you think about dSLR, mirrorless should cost less than half. Or around $500 plus ...
  • I too like it. I downloaded and viewed. What I was doing was pixel peeping. No, that is not the right way to see the picture. This pic needs to be looked at on a wall and at a normal viewing ...
  • Replied in Z740
    I think chiue has broken some type of record of being faithful to... he knows. I love Kodak pics. I don't know what it is, the WB some Kodak formula, don't know. But I see it. And its second to none.
  • Created user review thread Serious IQ
    Without question this is now the finest lens I own for IQ. I never thought this lens would be so good. Some background info. I have been buying 50mm primes since my first dSLR some 10 years ago. My ...
  • Releases of new bodies is dictated by what sensor Sony will sell to Pentax. This also means the price at least lowest selling price is dependent on Sonys price for the sensor. This cannot be ...
  • Replied in Conclusion?
    I started with the Samsung GX10. Same as the Pentax K10D, except for UI, and jpeg engine. So I call it a K10D. Mike! I have not had time to read all this fully. But one glance at your survey speaks ...
  • Yes, sad news. RIP Rupert
  • I know you are happy! I just bought myself for Christmas the Pentax DA 50mm f/1.8 I have the old pentax A 50mm f/1.7 so I never thought of buying the new version. Well there are differences in ...
