  • My "profile" has a link to my website. You are welcome to explore it at your convenience. Really? Again, when it's time to post-process, a selected candidate image has tons of variables working in ...
  • As I understand things, the samples used in the cited report were NOT created by the author and their set-up/settings are considered suspect by many. So, as the cliche goes "Garbage in..." might ...
  • Can't speak for the OP... From my field/post-processing experience with nature subjects (birds, insects, butterflies, etc) using the K-1 almost every day from May 2016 and the K-1 Mk II, I'd say 'Yes.'
  • ... works just fine on my K-1 MkII post-processed DNG files using latest versions of LR Classic (7.3.1) and Photoshop CC (19.1.4). As such, I'll only look at fixing things (an update) when I find ...
  • Replied in Pssst...
    ...the K-1 MkII is even better (but let's keep it a secret) :-) Cheers, and enjoy the season... M

  • My target subjects are insects, animals, and small birds... sitting still, flying, running and behaving in the wild at their speed, as they wish. I'm NOT an MFr... For me, the K-1's AF accuracy and ...
  • Once you develop some new 'muscle memories' and creep further up the learning curve, your K-1's layout/workflow will become quite intuitive... to the point, perhaps, you'll wonder "Now why ...

    Good question... No argument from me... along with faster shutter speeds and greater DOF, the lower the iso the better. Ah, but If only birds/nature would perform on command, or in predictable ways ...
  • Replied in Good Decision
    What you'll MOST probably regret is the time you wasted wandering in the wilderness when a K-1 was available for your use. You made a good decision. :-D Cheers... M

    WOW! Owls in flight are in the top tier of my target subjects. The K-1 MkII+HD DFA150-450 looks to be a great BIF combo. I took delivery of an HD DFA 150-450 this afternoon and am looking forward ...
  • My intent is NOT to persuade one way or the other. I'm just an "enthusiast" who shoots every day and tries to stay alert for ways to get better. While the K-1 has given me no problems and its ...
  • Replied in ... a question
    May I ask what were your test settings for Menu 1/2 "Reducing Noise when Shooting with a High ISO Sensitivity" (K-1 II Manual, pp 55), as reported out in your chart? Cheers... M
  • I've been shooting a K-1 since May 2016 and K-1 MkII since 20 April... My primary subjects are insects, wild animals and small birds encountered in everyday outdoor settings under normal to poor ...
  • So coercing the victim solves what, exactly? Just curious... M
  • Replied in Just...
    WOW! You're going to absolutely LOVE the K-1 MkII. Thanks for sharing... M
  • Replied in How is it...
    ...so many others are now seeing the MkII as "the better" of the others, now?  Perhaps, revisiting your monitor calibration is in order? Just trying to be helpful... M
  • Replied in Just...
    WOW! Thanks for sharing... M
  • Spend the next (say) six months fine-tuning your post processing skills.  Once you are 'world-class,' you'll be able to make better buying decisions... maybe even good ones. Plus, you'll have more ...
