  • My first camera was SLR look-alike with Minor Scout or Scout Minor in the name. Anyone knows more? It was a fixed aperture, fixed focus plastic lens element thingie which cost me around 2 USD. I...

  • Replied in New Pentax
    Don't give it away. I have one, and got a second one as part of a deal like you did. I was very well paid when I sold it. The one I've kept doesn't get very much use, since I have a good selection ...
  • Replied in Birds again...
    Lovely pictures of lovely birds, as usual from you Arijiit. The Flycatcher is my favourite, sooo cute. :-) Kjell
  • Regrets? Nope. There are things on the camera I don't use, like the third mode wheel. But nothing I'd like to have is missing. It is bigger and heavier than my K5, but still very pleasing to hold ...
  • Today, Lennart Nilsson passed away at 94 years of age. He became world famous in the sixties with his book "A child is born", and as some of the pictures were published in Life Magazine in it's ...
  • Phew! For a moment I was afraid you were about to damage your razor, but now I can rest assured you'll get a good shave tomorrow morning. Every night, as I take my sensor out to put it to bed, I ...
  • Replied in Fly inside
    Interesting catch in a doble sense! You know, you could have been a bit less honest and presented your shot as the ultimate proof that our planet is under attack by gigant flies from outer space. ;-) ...
  • Nice catches as usual, Arijit! It sets my imagination in motion, that all these birds might have come all the way from my country to your. Not likely, but possibly! Kjell
  • My experience is that wether older (film era) Pentax lenses deliver on full frame digital (K-1) varies, but that premium lenses stand up to their reputation. I have used the A* 85 mm f1.4, A*200mm ...
  • Noel! You have proven two things with your pictures. (1) The A* 200mm f2.8 is still a wonderful lens to be used on a digital full frame body. In spite of being manual focus, it's easy to focus spot on, ...
  • Check this: http://camerasize.com/compare/#188,659 The D300 is a bit bigger in spite of the K-1 being a full frame. According to the measurement the K-1 is thicker, but that is only because the ...
  • Replied in Fishes...
    Arijit! This shows that you and I share at least three interests. Photography, birds and aquariums. My first tank was a small one, with guppies from my older brothers tank. I was nine years old, ...
  • Hi, Twong! I have taken some PS autumn landscapes which I think and hope will come out well. I also installed the Pentax RAW-developer software, since Photoshop/ACR doesn't handle the PS very well. ...
  • Hi Kriztian! I agree with Miles, grab one! Nice picture, btw. Next week I'm going to Malmö for a conference, don't expect to see a sunset like that in November Sweden. I'd for sure prefer an ...
  • I already had a good selection of good FF lenses for the K-1 (A*, F* and FA), and those lenses are just as good on the K5. When I built my lens collection I always had an upcoming FF body in mind, ...
  • I first had an *istDS. Then I bought a K20D. I never grew very fond of that camera, so when I bought the K5 i sold the K20D and kept the *istDS as a second/backup. The K5 was, and still is, an ...
  • If you had turned the camera in landscape position you'd got the unicorn and the feathered cat in the picture as well! Is this shop run by extraterrestrials? On a serious note, this feels so good ...
  • Is it only the K-1 or is it all cameras made by Japanese companys? If it's only the K-1, it's actually good news for those of us who already bought one. It means demand is high. Why, from the ...
  • That's very depending on the specific lens. My A35-70 f4, which was an amazingly good lens for it's price on analog, shows severe fringing on the K-1. My A* 85 and A* 200mm lenses, on the other ...
  • This problem is adressed in the latest firmware upgrade, to be released on September 29. If you don't already have the K-1, you're unlikely to buy one before that date. So noone have been able to ...
