  • Replied in Obscure...?
    ...should NOT be for the aspiring photographer... nearby Sylvania, OH, is Sam Abell's birthplace of National Geographic, ... a search on his name will produce amazing results, if wildlife/wild ...
  • I see the K-1's USB spec as just another way for getting an image from the camera/SD card into a computer without a built-in card reader. Years ago I discovered my laptop's SD reader was ...
  • Good catch... http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Papilio-glaucus Looks looks a female (they can be quite showy). Common. This year they seem to be abundant. Enjoy... M
  • Replied in Moose Tip
    Short bursts are quite easy to learn and do. I adapted a tip from Moose Peterson ( HT: http://www.moosepeterson.com/ ) during my K-20D days that he simply let his shutter finger roll forward over ...
  • Replied in Slow SD Card ?
    What's the read/write speed of your SD card?  Fast R/W SD cards are cheap... Oh, I see you've decided to move on. Great, but were you ever here? Best of success... M
  • Replied in I'm Impressed
    For someone passing through the scene at a fast clip, might agree (but it seems like an easy fix). For others milling around, kids waving, people chatting, even the woman walking (upper center ...

  • If you know how to photograph toddlers, you should be able to produce lots of 'keepers'. Cheers... M
  • Replied in Try...
    For me, finely tuned on-camera tracking is NOT 'mission critical'. While I'd like to learn more, I can get along just fine not paying the premium for a little used, or needed (by me) tracking ...
  • Replied in Try...
    As a rule, I do not photograph people unknown to me. I don't want the hassle of feeling the need to get a model release from a stranger (runner, driver, pedestrian, rider, etc). Instead, I limit my ...
  • Replied in Review has legs.
    Unfortunately, dPreview's review is NOT hidden away on this obscure site gathering dust. It's prominently featured in Amazon's K-1 offering. https://www.amazon.com/Pentax-K-1-Full-Frame-Camera/dp/B ...
  • Replied in Try...
    Yep... AF-S... even for BIF's (as mentioned earlier, it helps to be an experienced skeet shooter when going after swallows in flight, or frollicking squirming toddlers </wink>) Even though they ...
  • Replied in Try...
    If you are not doing this already... - Relax... - Go out with zero expectations. Consider a 'keeper,' a gift. I'm always surprised when I return from a shoot. With the K-1, I get way more high ...
  • My experiences with the K-1 do NOT confirm dPreview's moving subject AF test assessment. I'm getting reasonably good results photographing quick moving everyday subjects that my friends find ...
  • A major topic of conversation between my friends who shoot other camera brands is sensor cleaning. Starting with the K-20-D eight years ago, I've yet to to clean one. I never considered WR as ...
  • Replied in Crickets...
    Disagree... dPreview appears to be allowing the blind lead the blind and in so doing wasting valuable resources (time, energy, money). Stop the monkeying around !
  • Replied in Are You Sure?
    OK... so you did not get coverage confirmation from Ricoh/Pentax before you bought? Let's hope your K-1 performs with no problems and there's no need to put your understanding of coverage to the test.

  • Replied in Same Day...
    As I recall, their website indicated it was on backorder (early May). I thought... well, I'll put my name in the hopper for one when the next batch arrives, or whenever. As soon the order was ...
