  • Replied in KP vs K70
    I have both the K-70 and the KP and, to be honest, I've very little to add to the thread, most of my points have already been stated ;) Both cameras have their advantages for me :- The fully ...
  • If you're not using them for anything else, perhaps you could set up on of your "User" modes to your favourite "Indoor" settings ... though you would have to remember to use that ;)
  • Owning both a KP and a K-70, I'd suggest looking at the subtle detail differences between the two models, just in case the K-70 can give you something you're missing ... like a fully articulated ...
  • Are you using a full-size SD card or a micro-SD card in an adaptor? I have an adaptor with a very loose "Protect" switch, which would switch itself on when inserted into a camera, then switch ...
  • This trend to make "the smallest most compact SLR" may have started with the film *ist , and seems to have been continued, with one or two exceptions, through to the KP. Whilst this may be ...
  • My K-5 seemed like a natural progression from my *ist DS and I can still pick up either of them and "carry on as normal". With the K-70 and subsequently the KP the overly cramped layout on the back ...
  • You're right, the Sigma 150-500mm is full-frame, just checked on an old film body! As for softness, not so I've noticed, but I'm not "super-critical". I use it almost exclusively in TAv mode, ...
  • Excellent birthday present ... congratulations! An "economically-priced" NX30 is something I'm keeping my eyes open for. In the meantime my NX5 continues to provide a digital platform for my old ...
  • If you're happy working in crop mode, the Sigma 150-500mm takes a lot of beating and is usually available second-hand rather cheaper than any Pentax equivalent. I've used mine first on my K-70 and ...
  • Don't most of the "flagship" models (that don't have an integral flash) have built-in GPS? Seemed like a logical trend, but we'll see ;)
  • Interesting thought! Probably not a feature I'd use, but I can see the application :)
  • There are those (on another forum) who will insist that the little "notch" doesn't even exist and that it is just a "trick of the light" or a misinterpretation of the perspective. I'm inclined to ...
  • Replied in Focus & Shake
    Try it on a tripod with OIS switched off. If problems still occur, change over to manual focus and try again. Not suggesting that you need to work like this, but trying to ascertain what is ...
  • From my many years in the electronics repair industry, albeit business equipment in general rather than cameras specifically, I'd guess it really is a "blob of gum", being used as an ...
  • I bought a Tamron 18-200mm for my K-5 many years ago as a general purpose walkabout lens and it continues to function quite adequately. However, I have difficulty using cameras without eye-level ...
  • I don't think the K3 is different to any of the other Pentax bodies, the in-body Shake Reduction is self-adjusting according to the zoom setting of the lens, which communicates it's current focal ...
  • Nice results, a worthwhile test :) Do you use the OIS on the lens, or does this model not have that feature? I've owned (and used extensively) the Sigma 150-500mm, also bought second-hand, for over ...
  • Theoretically, yes, just unscrew the retainers for the lenses and with the glass removed what you've got left will work as an extension tube. However, there may be some peripheral obstruction ...
  • Is it possible some default settings have been changed in the "Manual" mode which are causing the problems? I'd try doing a factory reset.
  • Replied in DSLR is better
    A DSLR will always be better at technical photography, right at the limits of optical capability, unfortunately the vast majority of the marketplace is far more interested in hi-resolution selfies ...
