  • You will never see what other people see unless everybody has perfect monitors and the same viewing conditions. Keeping it simple, think just about brightness - all your clients will be running ...
  • Either there is something badly wrong with the lens they tested or their methodology is wrong. The disparity between centre and edge MTF results is way, way too high for any decent lens never mind ...
  • I would recommend re-posting your problem on the PC Talk forum here, have a search for colour management posts from digidog - Andrew Rodney who has lots of  helpful videos available. I think you ...
  • That should get you the most experienced users to guide you through set-up.
  • Replied in None at all
    They are not described as water-proof just water-resistant, which is not defined. If they were truly water-proof the spec would say something about the IP rating.
  • Try the ephotozine reviews of both the Tamron and Pentax versions. 4 years apart and it looks like the Pentax version is better. Pity lensrentals doesn't have a Pentax mount on which to test ...
  • Replied in Utter nonsense
    Most cameras are perfectly capable of shooting 1500 shots a day and I have done so many times with various Pentaxes. I only shoot in single shot mode so I don't get to that number by simple ...
  • http://www.toptenreviews.com/software/multimedia/best-dvd-authoring-software/ A simple internet search will get you lots of similar results.
  • Replied in Flat bed scanner
    Another way is to use an A4 flatbed scanner and laptop to scan sections then stitch together assuming you can cope with folding the map if too big to scan all sections flat. A suitable scanner ...
  • Pentax made an accessory in the 60's which might be just the thing for you, the Pentax Copipod. It is a very portable four legged tripod to which you attach your camera face down by the lens ...
  • DPR's review comments about K1 jpeg quality refer to what they consider to be a poor choice of default settings. Pentax jpegs settings are easily customisable to give better results so there is no ...
  • Have you discussed your proposed project with your library? Are they willing to give you access and space to set up your kit? That could be your biggest obstacle. If they are selling scans of the ...
  • Created discussion thread UK savings for a US event
    SRS have some very good savings this weekend on all Pentax lenses for the imported Black Friday retail opportunity. Worth a look and no, I don't get a commission on sales but will be spending my ...
  • And it has been discussed to death.
  • I don't have the camera in question so am guessing and maybe misunderstanding the problem. Are you saying that when you switch to LV mode, manual focus mode, select the focus spot on the screen ...
  • I always thought of large format as film that only came in single exposure form i.e. sheet film. And before any bright sparks suggests that  you can do multiple exposures on any piece of film ...
  • Yet we still seem to attract plenty of comments from former Pentaxians keen to tell us that Pentax is the wrong choice.
  • Replied in Astrotracer
    I think that GPS is essential for the Astrotracer function.
  • Since you have Lightroom already why not give it a go first? There are lots of useful tutorials around such as these from Adobe and there are thousands more on YouTube. Using metadata plus your own ...
  • While I import my images into specific folders I rarely bother to view by folder inside LR. The basic Library view shows everything and means I can forget about folder structures. But I make full ...
