  • Should we know who Alex Sirbu is ?? The closest nearly right I  know of is Alex Sarbu but he's based in Cambridge UK so guess not him :D http://www.dofweddingphotography.com/
  • good point he would need an extra flash to generate the P-ttl signal makes them a very expensive option for a single flash user
  • If you want P-ttl then you have two options the Acon as described above is a full P-ttl to RF triggers or the Aokatec TTL triggers which convert the optical P-ttl signals to RF and back to OPtical ...
  • Looks very accurate for a British overcast day. If you lift levels  and kick contrast it stops being photo journalism and moves into 'creative art' . The subject matter is better as 'real'.
  • and one which many K-1 purchases forgot in the eagerness to have something to shove their legacy glass on to see it in it glorious native magnification factor 1:1 Still most diamonds in the rough ...
  • Well the new SIgma  has a better bokeh than the onion SIgma 50 f1.4 EX but OOF CA is still pretty much uncontrolled . It still suffers some unexplained mis focus's (at least on Canon) SO we have Si ...
  • The same could be said for aps-C & fast glass I don't believe any serious studio 645z shooter has exchanged it for a FF camera, same as aps-C vs FF there is no logical reason. You buy the larger ...
  • KAF4 supports an electronic aperture the 55-300 PLM is a KAF4 Lens so only works on k3ii and later models and even there FW update is required for the older model (predating KaF4) The K3 does not ...
  • Looks like slightly higher contrast and sharpening from the k70 leading to a perceived higher resolution. The lens resolution across the frame  looks like its probably identical. Perhaps repeat ...
  • A very good point Kikivrany. Though if your up-to controlling the light rather than let the camera have free reign then you can achieve the same results using 'P' or 'AV and flash,camera ...
  • Exactly DFS subtacted from the OP created  artificial DFS = zero noise it means DFS works as advertised in camera DFS takes a dark frame (after the main frame) and uses that to subtract sensor ...
  • I think most spotted that and answered correctly the question ;- The black band is an area not showing thermal noise (the magenta you see) the spark-lies are caused by pixel failure at long ...
  • It sensor heat caused by electronic heat build up, Why the top (botom physically) does not heat the same you'd have to ask the designers. But you are doing some pretty rough stuff to the image 2 ...
  • Yeah you also have to consider your consumer rights , Warranty and DOA etc etc For the UK that is  2 years warranty , 6 Year design defect and generally 7 days DOA. plus I believe 2 year warranty ...
  • Well without the conspiracy theories (always good for a laugh) maybe he just got bored ? Either way it a shame he was always reasonable and applied his power with moderation (pun intended) It ...
  • Well not strictly true. The Cactus V11 can 1 set camera into P-ttl mode 2 control power levels of any pre flash TTL flash (Canon,Nikon or Pentax etc) It does not allow TTL HSS wireless control of ...
  • Using X sync is the only auto mode way to tell a Pentax your shooting flash priority. Every other auto mode will use flash fill mode which could lead to some surprising results and as you've ...
  • I think the da*55 pre-dates the f2.8 sensor therefore to achieve f1.4 type accuracy with f5.6 sensor you need very accurate lens movement with minimum backlash (lot of turns minimise errors). Havin ...
  • Nice images IMO the da*55  offers a world of awesomeness, the many minor advances over the FA50 1.4 are major when added together. It is the best general purpose IQ lens in the 40-60 range A good ...
  • All 'brand fit' flashes are locked to the brand there designed for Every manufacturer has implemented pre flash ttl (the current favoured auto flash method) differently using different timings and ...
