  • too regards Pete
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
  • I've seen a number of these sorts of thing, and yes, as it's my camera I'm going to look after it somewhat better than that.   This thread was more in response to some cynicism on another forum ...
  • Thanks.  Yes, I'm planning to be more careful with it than I'd originally anticipated. regards Pete
  • We often get sea mists, cold and damp days and so on in the winter.  Cold isn't a problem as it rarely drops beneath 0°C (32°F).  I don't plan to go out in really foul weather (although ...
  • Yes, I've just had a look at my guarantee and it specificaly includes 'damage by water infiltration' - a rough translation from the French. regards Pete
  • Thanks, sounds good. regards Pete
  • Thanks - it's early days yet, but beginning to look like the scepticism I met elsewhere was unfounded. regards Pete
  • By the way, I'm having trouble with my browser - won't let me use 'Like' button or 'Options,' so my not 'liking' a comment isn't because I don't like it, if you see what I mean!
  • Yes, I should have specified with one of those lenses.   It's one of the reasons I settled on Pentax - it was reasonably clear what lenses to use!
  • Created discussion thread Weather Resistance
    Having bought into (innocently, I might add) Pentax by buying a K50, I said (foolishly, perhaps) on another forum that has ephoto  and zine somewhere in it (didn't disappear this time) that it was ...
  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Ah!! I'm being thick today (and yesterday, the day before and so on....hopefully tomorrow will be better). Perhaps the first would work nicely in non-English speaking places. As for the other,...

    Nevertheless, Gio 645, he got a star on his posts and you didn't, so you can't be right.

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I don't understand why Pentax stick to the standard JPEG settings - seems to get shot down in reviews. The first thing I did when I got mine (not a K-1, though) was to change colours to 'natural'....

  • Ah well, it was just a thought.   Thanks.
  • It would be nice if somebody tried this with the bicycle test.  OK, you can't specify the aperture, but if the camera can do the job automatically (and well) then who cares (well, probably a lot ...
  • Dunno, really, as I'm far too slow for action shots - I'd much prefer to decide where I want to take the shot, where I think the action will be most interesting and so on.  If I miss it, tant pis ...

    Oops, having read DuncanM1's thread seems Chasseur d'Images have updated their test, so please disregard the 'car on a winding road test' bit. I tried to edit the previous comment but was too...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I've seen some of Chasseur d'Images tests a while back. If the recent tests are the same, they looked to be focussing on a car approaching on a winding road. I mentioned this difference between...
