  • For me the content. If the content is not personally interesting, it is getting deleted.
  • With my past DP Merrill I always shot RAW and used Silky Pix to process to Tiff. I like the colors and B&W results with my Merrill. I tried doing this with my Pentax solely in camera and some of ...
  • Same for me. I am going to a good dark sky area this week with the hope of getting some milky way shots. No matter how they turn out, I will learn something this week from using my camera :)
  • So should you. I am not a professional by any stretch and do not pretend to be. Just because I am not a pro or great at this means several things to me that are related to my sig. 1- I can enjoy my ...
  • And that may mean they are still posting here when they should be out practicing. You don't get better by making a 1000 post or reading 20 books. After a while you need to put the book and theory ...
  • If you keep taking pictures ( practicing ) eventually you will know what you are doing. I think what the OP is talking about, is stop fretting over what camera you have. Read your manual, know the ...
  • To me this is completely subjective. I am color blind, color disorientation is what my last medical eye doctor called it. I like vibrant colors and contrast. For my taste Fuji, Pentax, and Sigma ...
  • Full frame, IBIS, Weather Sealed. Pixel Shift is nice for macro but it was not the determining factor.
  • Panasonic, Olympus, Sony put a lot of R&D into video with their cameras. Nikon, Pentax and to some extent Canon does not. There was no way I was going to pay 2000.00 for a 4/3 system camera. Video ...
  • I like all of them. Good pictures and especially like the detail you were able to pull out of the rocks.
  • Good shots. I especially like the stream and tracks. We got a dusting and some sleet today in Cincinnati; but by the time I got off work it was nothing but puddles.
  • I downloaded FRV and Photo Mechanic trials as I am tried of the slowness of my RAW Editors. Photo Mechanic is faster than FRV but both are multiple times faster than anything else I have. I am ...
  • Go on the trip. I have a plan to go out west this year and see the rocky mountains for the first time in my adult life. That plan also includes buying two more lens so I can have a three lens ...
  • As much as I want this site to be about photography, it is really about the gear. I slowed down my posting here in the last couple of weeks simply because I don't care about what you know ...
  • I agree with you 100% and my reason is simple. I don't design, build, or work on cameras. My computer hobby turned into my job because I learned how to take them a part, replace parts, set jumper ...
  • I want to thank everyone for the input! I posted this over at Pentax Forums as well and the members there are heavily favored to the Rokinon as well. I won't be able to save the 300.00 bucks but I ...
  • The Rokinon 24mm TS is only a 3rd of the price of the Canon TS; so quality is going to be down to make the price work. It is a usable lens stopped down to F8 or F11; but the knobs from what I read ...
  • Created discussion thread Rokinon 24mm TS vs Pentax 28mm Shift
    I am getting close to buying my next lens and until I heard about the Pentax Shift 28mm F3.5's sharpness was all set on the Rokinon 24mm 3.5 TS. I have read the Pentax is a really sharp lens and ...
  • Replied in K1 owners
    Not at this time. I have a few lens in mind this year. If I do upgrade it will be next year; but the K1 II will have to be a slam dunk upgrade for me to do it. I am not going to spend my money ...
  • I have only taken two in the last year that I think are worthy of hanging on my wall. I did not know how good they were until I opened them up on my monitor. The feeling was one of surprise and ...
