  • Plenty of moneyed retirees buy expensive photo gear or is that what you mean by wealthy collectors? Plenty of photography people have lots of money regardless of their age and spend it on stuff ...
  • 97% LoL So only 3% off a theoretical perfect lens. Yet more internet reviews and mindless scores that anybody can fire up. :-P
  • If Pentax knew what the concept of marketing was they would hire you as an ambassador but they must come from the nebula you photographed or somewhere similar. Their so called promotion ...
  • I once followed the supposed tutorials from that condescending Roger astro guy (you will know) and could not get it to work as  good as it should have, setting the black point etc. I found it ...
  • :-P No you can't Superb Chris, that gives me a bit of reason not to sell my O-GPS1 unit but you have Bortle 2 next door which isn't fair :-x:-)
  • Metal tripods are aluminium which is non-magnetic. A car is a relatively huge mass of magnetic steel unless it is some exotic sports car with an alloy or carbon fibre chassis. Also some geologies ...
  • I wish I was exaggerating Mike but I have seen enough ruined astro photos already and there is only a small percentage of these light polluters up there so far. No plug-ins will be available for ...
  • Unfortunately once nature terrorist Elon Musk puts all 12,000 internet satellites up widefield astro as we know it will be impossible. I'll probably sell my O-GPS1 astro unit as I won't be able to ...
  • Replied in Save me!
    Such beautiful brickwork and design, this building needs repurposed and saved from ruin.
  • Lens flare is an aberration i.e. a fault. I've never heard anybody who wants lens flare as it completely ruins a photograph.

    Maybe you're an astrophotographer but if you are getting flare that...

  • Agreed, obviously something wrong with the camera. I have never made any lens adjustments in K-30 or K-70 going back to 2012. Maybe the OP is using the wrong AF point but not sure about this to be ...
  • I paid a whopping GBP £90 for CLA service of a minter ME Super I bought. Very gorgeous but I revived a wrecked looking Pentax MX with severe battery corrosion where it leaked out and semi-welded...

  • 300k shots a year on film?

    That is a lot of development and darkroom time.

    12,500 rolls of 24x exp film per year or about 34 rolls everyday

    Really? haha

  • He's picked the wrong area if he wants to be a millennial YOUtube millionaire. So picking Pentax gear as an interest means he isn't going to get that many clicks and he doesn't. Thirdly, who cares ...
  • ME Super never had that weakness for me... learn how to load the film first, that is beginners error.

  • The in-camera HDR-RAW can do such a good job if you set the original exposure properly that it can look so good to not need any PP. You get a dynamic range well beyond any digital camera that ...
  • Nice and a beautiful place it looks. And keeping away from the huge crowds as reported in the UK news! :-) I use the HDR RAW function in my K-70 as well as bracketed (merging in LR) 'sun in photo' ...
  • Art? What would you call the Hubble Space Telescope then? A great engineering achievement or the finest painting? :)

  • A monster lens is required to pass test charts and as sharp in the corners as the centre. As you know you will be staring at the corners of your portrait photographs.

    It's yet another monster lens...

  • How can the 14mm Mkii have a fix if it uses the same optical formula as the original? I have the 14mm and only use it for astro, the moustache distortion is truly horrible.
