  • Do they not know Pentax is doomed? 😁 In all seriousness that looks a serious bit of kit, what do you intend to do with it? The long range is impressive if you want to light up distant ...
  • You are not too late to start film, I bought all my film cameras and darkroom equipment after I bought my first DSLR. I only use B&W film, I still might buy a medium format Pentax or Mamiya 67 ...
  • It was used by the Open University UK and provided valid scientific research. Yes you can rent the HST if you have enough money. I've never known anyone that rented a large scope to take a ...
  • Sorry... This is the one I used with the specification data for you Pirate telescope ...it was in Mallorca in the Mediterranean and I remotely operated it from my bedroom far away. We used it for ...
  • The Canadian astrophotographer on YouTube did a video yesterday "I'm seeing RED (DSLR Astrophotography)" using the new Redcat 51 and the results look great. Only for the serious astrophotographer! ...
  • Some nice ones in there... No.3 for starters, the people in the photo with the sunset 😃
  • You can never trust battery capacity claims, I bought Eneloop Pro for bicycle lights and they don't last as long as basic rechargeable batteries I took out of a central heating timer in a house I ...
  • Just got the cleaning kit today, by the time I get home and clean myself (covered in dust) it'll be bedtime. I also prepare the room by de-dusting with water vapour first too. Bad idea for me to ...
  • The Hahnel batteries are good, I got one as a spare with my K-70, first time I have used 3rd party but it seems excellent even the build quality is good.
  • Belfast is a dark place in more ways than one then? 😁 I get depressed every winter here, some years when I can afford it I go to the Canary Islands on Christmas/New Year, it has the perfect ...
  • Yes indeed, I read the theory about the diversion of the gulf stream many years ago due to the melting ice and other reasons, it could be in the preliminary stages. Last year it was colder for a ...
  • Scotland yes as it is so mountainous, they have a ski resort. Very little in Ireland this year, some winters snow can lie in the mountains for a few months and I remember wishing I had crampons a ...
  • Replied in Humming bird
    I'm using a small Android tablet, maybe something to do with it. The high ISO performance of modern cameras is brilliant, I'm loving the K-70 for this too. ISO 6400 10 years ago was unusable, ...

    Thanks, I looked for the EXIF data but it isn't showing up, other photos have it though?
  • Replied in Humming bird
    Ha I was going to ask the same question. I would guess a star * lens looking at it.
  • Northrup is anti-Pentax, don't listen to a word he says, he just wants as many clicks on his boring videos to make money. Remember Pentax make 645 cameras too and are continuing with it 😉
  • I agree, owning K-30 and K-70 I've never missed it and prefer it's omission for minimalism and a smaller body, all the info in viewfinder and LCD screen, especially with the fully articulated LCD ...
  • 29.2 will get you 10% bigger prints than 24MP. I think pixel pitch is small enough already for 24MP APS-C and lenses ability to resolve.
  • A fully articulated screen, the most brilliant invention for a camera ever. Last night I was rotating my K-70 with newly acquired DA* 60-250 using the tripod collar and I realised I will never have ...
  • Hell with that, snow is OK for a week to get photos but now I know why my friend only stayed a year in Canada after taking his family there for good. It even snowed in Hawaii, first time in 67 ...
