  • Not a concept I'd considered, too used to making focus adjustments then re-positioning as necessary for exposure, but can see the attraction if one wanted to make several slightly different ...
  • Probably because wild bird photography can be one of the more challenging aspects of the hobby … churches (or insert whatever takes your fancy) are great, but they'll still be there tomorrow and ...
  • First thing … get birds into the garden. Scatter all sorts of edibles, seeds, bread scraps etc., regularly. Not in any great quantity, you don't want to be encouraging rats or other undesirables, ...
  • The problem with that concept (assuming the resultant exposure is considered technically satisfactory) is likely to be that the background (and foreground) is as sharp as the subject … maybe OK if ...
  • Theory is fine … but a bird at 300yds and beyond ?!?! it'll need to be a BIG bird! For me, with a 500mm, 300ft is about maximum for a bird the size of a Heron, Harrier or similar, maybe twice that ...
  • Having used a K-70 for over a year primarily for 'birding' (before I 'upgraded' to a KP) I'd suggest two things :- 1) A 300mm lens is likely to be a bit short if you're anticipating dealing with ...
  • Probably best asking questions like this on a Canon camera forum … this site is primarily for Samsung cameras ;)
  • It's called "Quick-Shift Focus" (check your camera manual). Not available with all lenses, but, whilst keeping the shutter button half-depressed, you can shift the focus on the lens manually 'till ...
  • Replied in NX100 in 2021?
    Exactly the reason I bought my NX5 … my "retired" range of Russian r/f lenses have a new lease of life. The 85mm f/2 Jupiter-9 continues to deliver and the Industar-69 makes the camera quite ...
  • I'll take a punt : NX 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ;)
  • My K-70 has been "relegated" to macro and astro work since the arrival of my KP and subsequently K-3iii, so I hadn't used it for a while 'till this morning when I went "bug-hunting" with a ...
  • Replied in NX100 in 2021?
    I use an NX5 as an "alternative system" camera to my Pentax system, coincidently, and assuming the 14.6M.Pixel sensor in the NX5 is the same as the NX100 it'll produce nice pictures provided you ...
  • With a Windows PC, some software will write extra EXIF data to all and any image files it can find "for indexing purposes". This will leave the file uneditable with the Digital Camera Utility ...
  • Thanks :) This video seems to cover things comprehensively https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMSoPK-ok8Q … effectively just unscrew the front ring on the lens, drop the front element out, then re-fit ...
  • Which camera were these taken on, please? Is it a full-frame or an APS-C? If the latter I might just be tempted to set up a Helios-44 with the front element permanently reversed just so's I can use ...
  • The ultra-high ISO's get really noisy, but when the image is grey-scaled the problems become a lot less obvious, much like really grainy b&w film.
  • That was my immediate reaction. Having just recently discovered the "magic" available from applying this feature, some of my older lenses are discovering a whole new lease of life!
  • Personally, I see no real benefit to having a "wide-angle end" to what is effectively a long telephoto, it simply makes the whole assembly heavier and more expensive to produce. However, something ...
  • Personally, in "the real world", I just find the viewfinder on the K-3iii easier to use. For my eyesight, wearing spectacles, there seems to be less "peering around corners" and the wide array of ...
  • Surprisingly, no mention at all of the built-in "astro" capabilities … maybe he couldn't get hold of an O-GPS1. Also, I don't think he fully grasped the extra capabilities of the K-3iii when using ...
