  • Everyone who frequents this forum has had some contact with Ron. He will be sorely missed.
  • http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond7000/22 I like Pentax and Nikon cameras, heck, any company that makes a decent camera gets my vote. Do Nikon and Pentax cameras on the whole have a "Tendency ...
  • What Mike said/did! Something else to consider, perhaps, is changing the white balance inside the cave somewhat. It's just a theory of course, but maybe it should be a little closer to 'shade' values.

  • Not sure if you were looking for opinions, but I'd go for the zoom. Nothing against the D500: my thinking is that if you absolutely needed any of the new features you probably would have no dilemma...

  • I see you're mostly sorted now, but in case you'd ever like to try to break the dependency on MS, this thread might come in handy: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56446950
  • My vote is for some Presonus Eris E4.5, which will set you back $200 on Amazon.com. I'm interested in the bigger Eris models myself ( http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/oct13/articles/presonus-eris.htm ...
  • You might find the Pentax magnifying eyecup useful, it's called the O-ME53 I believe. (I just checked and it's available on the Italian Amazon site for 32 euros, and is worth it in my opinion). ...
  • Why not wait until the new Pentax full frame is released? Nothing magical about MF at the end of the day. It's all about the quality of sensor and lenses, isn't it?
  • It was my pleasure. I love taking photos, and used to do so every day for the sake of practice and learning. Having not continued in that habit for a while your thread gave me the perfect excuse. I ...
  • Hi Dan, I'd see the comparison as a reason to be happy rather than the reverse, since in addition to the K-30 you have a highly capable, waterproof compact that doesn't give up too much to it's ...
  • Hi Dan, Here are a few of photos I shot for the purpose of comparison. Aside from the shutter speeds obviously, the parameters are as close to the same as I can get. I used the same lens, jpeg ...
  • Hi Dan, at the risk of sounding obtuse, in this issue I think you should start at the end and work backwards. I mean, what are you intending to do with your final results? Depending on the answer ...
  • Hi Dan, It looks subjectively a little softer to me than I'd expect, not by much and I might well be imagining it. Seems to be fairly consistent across the frame. I have to say though that if you ...
  • Superb!
  • Hi Smitty, thanks for your response. The devil is in the details, and I'm afraid there's one in the OP which has caused a misunderstanding. The image I uploaded shows as being shot -2ev comp, when ...
  • Created discussion thread Pentax DSLR Feature request
    Inspired by a couple of recent articles on the main page, at an event the other day I decided to shoot my K5 at the lowest ISO regardless of the very low light conditions, with the idea of pushing ...
  • Commented on photo Bianca VI-7820 in the The Modern Girl challenge

    Nice shot, although the VII one is much better imo. The processing looks way too much here, like a halo as Conan mentioned. Does the pink/red surfer girl actually need dodging and burning to stand...

  • Beautiful. If I had to pick one, it would definitely be the one with the green background.
