  • The K-S2, K-70, KP, K-3iii and (presumably) the KF have built-in Wi-Fi capability which will connect to an iPhone both for remote control and image transmission purposes, using the freely ...
  • Haha :) … but seriously, if there was a practical way of swapping the in-built i/r blocking filter for an in-built i/r pass filter. or even just dropping the in-built blocking filter out of the way ...
  • It's all a bit of a gimmick ;) They publish examples with the camera settings as well, so it's not too difficult to at least get close to the same effect then save that in a User Mode, else load ...
  • Thanks for that … the a/f XS option looks interesting :)
  • With an esoteric item like this your best bet is to offer it for auction at a reasonable starting price and let it find it's own level. If re-sellers are offering prices in the 1500 range, they'll ...
  • Replied in K70 users...
    Not quite sure what the question is, but if you press the left-hand side of the four-way controller (with the 'lightning flash') you'll get your flash options on the rear screen. NB: Depending on ...
  • Aaaah!! … that'll cause problems ;) The Pentax DSLRs that I'm familiar with don't allow the setting of Auto-ISO in Manual Mode … (I knew the option was available on the K-01) … I'll remember in ...
  • This thread on the "other" forum should answer most queries : https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/54-pentax-lens-articles/110657-how-use-meter-manual-m42-lenses-all-pentax-dslrs-k-1-k-3-k-5-k-30-et ...
  • Publishing plans too far in advance can simply serve to disappoint people if the plans go awry, else it potentially slows down sales of existing stock and serves no purpose other than to reduce ...
  • One of the local semi-professionals uses a Nikon 800mm on his z-whatever-it-is … works well, but a bit out of my budget ;) I've read about a couple of 150-450mm falling apart … rather glad I bought ...
  • You might like to check out this official Pentax page about using the Digital Camera Utility software with images from older cameras - https://pentaxofficial-com.translate.goog/5318/?_x_tr_sl=ja&_x ...
  • Pity you didn't keep the KP, it's an arm and a leg above everything else from Pentax except the K-3iii. Good luck:)
  • Revision :- Sorry for the mis-leading post :( I just double-checked with my NX-5 with a Hexanon 40mm f/1.8 fitted on an adaptor and I can change the shutter speed in "M" (manual) mode. With the ...
  • Is this a mirror lens or a "normal" lens? In my experience, when using non-Samsung lenses with adaptors on my NX cameras, the only option available is "A" (aperture priority), wherein the lens is ...
  • I'm a great fan of the wide range zoom. I was an "early adopter" when Tamron introduced their Adaptall-2 28-200mm "back in the day". This was updated to the second version, which finally succumbed ...
  • Maybe room for a sensor, the mirror is already there, just need to figure out where to put the battery, card slot and circuit boards ... could jam some stuff into the film compartments … else ...
  • I don't see what the problem is. TAv is Auto-ISO by design, only limited by any restrictions imposed by the user in the menus. For "normal" indoor flash photography using P-TTL the P (Program) ...
  • Given that you already own the Sigma 170-500mm and a Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8, replacing these for another system would likely screw your budget before you've even considered a decent body to put ...
  • Brief experimentation with those bodies I do own suggest the 6Mpixel CCD bodies are similar, the K200D (10Mpixel CCD) is extensively i/r blocked, almost to a point of zero effective i/r ...
  • Nice pix :) My i/r forays have been mostly limited to an unconverted *istDL2 with a Lee 87 filter … nice monochrome results but the inevitable long exposures really require a tripod. Maybe someday ...
