  • Yes, I understand. I am usually around 1 in 6 to make it either to the gallery or to the customer for "normal" events or events I am used to. For fast action photography and especially events I am ...
  • Thank you Peter. If IQ would be the only criteria, yes, Pentax would have delivered simila results, if not better especially regarding color rendition. However, shooting with Pentax (or any other ...
  • Hi Mike Interesting stats, Mike. If you really achieve a keeper rate of 68% at a fast sport action event, that would be impressively high! This weekend, I covered the Gstaad Major Beach Volleyball ...
  • If I remember correctly, the use of drone has been forbidden at this place (just like on most tourist spots in Iceland)
  • True! The area from where you can get the mountain, the waterfall and at least part of the river is rather limited... Probably a length of about 6-8 meters, depending on how wide your lens goes...
  • Hi Very nice photos. Kirkjufell is definitely always worth a visit... Different season, different light... 645z, DA645 28-45
  • Very nice series, Bruce, thank you for sharing. Iceland is always worth a visit and the glacier lagoon is a very good spot. The nearby ice beach is also worth a visit, given there are some ice ...
  • When you need fast primes on the K-1, you have no other choice than to rely on lenses from film-era. I appreciated the FA 31, FA 43, FA 77, FA*85 as well as third party primes such as the Zeiss ...
  • Yes, I know. I mentionned the K10D as it was the camera where I really tried to squeeze most out of the camera as I simply had no Nikon gear to cover sport events. I have spend quite some time ...
  • Yes, I understand. All I can recommend you to increase the percentage of keepers is to know your subject and anticipate to compensate for the lack of speed of the camera, if one can anticipate on ...
  • Hi Mike You are basically at the same point where I was a few years ago when I started to cover sport events for the press, that was with a Pentax K10D back then. My main lens for sports was the ...
  • Yes, it is a very practical way to search for pictures on the map in Lightroom. But you don't need to have a built in GPS in the camera to do that. I geotag my photos from all my cameras ...
  • But I am not sure if bringing out one more camera without modern glass is going to help Pentax' future. I would be less worried about Pentax' future if Ricoh would manage to bring out new lenses ...
  • The Fuji DSLRs were based on Nikon DSLRs. The S5Pro is basically a D200 with Fuji sensor and Fuji firmware, but the rest is a D200 body. I had longer talks with Fujifilm if they ever will release a ...
  • Hi Soheil I have no clue if that would work, but the main problem remains, you miss the very instant which made you press the shutter.
  • That’s my feeling as well! The producing capacity is used for the lenses in Canon and Nikon mount. I guess sale volumes of the Sigma 35/1.4 Art in Pentax mount were just insignificant compared to ...
  • Why should Sigma take a risk producing lenses for such a low demand when even Ricoh refrains from releasing new lenses?
  • You can't blame Sigma to support their own cameras with modern lenses!
  • Just a side note, the Leica M10 is a full-frame camera and Fuji X-Pro 2 isn’t a range-finder camera.
  • Hi Marek I am using both Pentax K-1 and Nikon D500. However, I seldom use these for sports photography. I cover sports however almost on a weekly basis for the press or for the organizers ...
