    beautiful image! How come you made it without a K3-III, whose absence is driving everybody mad? (just kidding..) The camera is just a tool, and you surely know how to use it...
  • the camera is just a tool... have you got a working camera? so where is the problem? go out and shoot
  • Happy with a Metz M400, on my K3-II.
  • of course I do, and I try to improve my work in every aspect. But I will never blame the camera for the quality of my images...
  • Siobhan, the forum title is "Pentax", so I guess that all technical issues are acceptable. I agree that I find extremely boring the never ending posts debating camera features that supposedly will ...
  • Dear A, thank you very much for your kind words, and for the deep and detailed comment. Will do some homework! Been in NZ in 1985, for our honeymoon: now, that's really a wonderful place to be! -G
  • It's beyond me to "steal" the job of professionals, I was looking for a home solution for flexibility sake: you need it, you print it. Since now, I have been doing with laser on aluminum, but the ...
  • OMG, the smallest I found is 60kg!
  • WOW, that's COOL!
  • thanks! Never knew about UV printers.. is the ink suitable for outdoors?
  • Created discussion thread Print on Dibond at home?
    I need to print text on 4x6" or 5x7" panels for outdoor use in a botanical garden. I thought that Dibond was a good idea, but was not able to find which printer can do that job. Any suggestion?
  • thanks, very interesting!
  • Flektogon, some people still buy Leica, some will buy Zeiss (...mirrorless), I had many years to save my pennies, and will buy the K3-III. Money comes, money goes, pictures stay forever... if you ...
  • Replied in K NEW
    rumors are it should be this... <just kidding..>
  • Created discussion thread remote control K3-II
    Hi All, the infrared remote control doesn't  work when you are standing on a side of the camera. Is there another mean to remote control the camera that gives you more freedom? -G
  • Replied in K-3 on Tripod
    I know, but my direct experience cannot confirm this, just try yourself
  • Replied in K-3 on Tripod
    David, I was disappointed of the sharpness of my K3-II on a tripod, so I did experiment and indeed if IBIS is on the picture comes out slightly blurred. Of course, manual focus on live view 100%, ...
  • Well, big question. If I could read the future, I'd rather go on the stock-exchange, make a really high pile of cash, start a hostile Pentax takeover, dump the Ricoh brand, and then issue the best ...
  • now, don't say Pentax didn't leave you ENOUGH time to save your pennies for the New Camera, that will make all us such photographers that Weston, Cartier Bresson and Avedon would pale seeing our ...
  • This is my workflow.. DARKTABLE on Linux, adjust RAW and export with profile setup for scaling image and save a jpg to a dedicated folder. Move files to a personal NEXTCLOUD instance, then open the ...
