I currently own the K10D and am looking with envy at the K-30 or K-50 models for their larger pixel count and much improved high iso performance, amongst other things. However I did wonder if the improved high iso was at the expense of base iso? I'd appreciate some feedback from users who have upgraded from the K10D. Besides being a bit bigger are the raw files just as clean at base iso? Are they just as maleable in post work?
I usually shoot with M mode by setting the exposure according to the position of EV bar in OVF. And I used to having the EV bar at -1 (under exposure), and Auto EV Compensation OFF. Everything was OK until one day of last month, when I found the LCD on my K5-IIs was so bright that it washed out the whole image, if I do Live View, Instant Review and Playback the images I am taking. Then I adjusted the LCD Display Settings to Brightness -3, Contrast +3. The Playback of images is acceptable now,...
I've not used my K10D before with a flash. I've used flash on other cameras, but I've rapidly come to the conclusion that it's easier and more intuitive to use Auto mode on the flash ( where the flash meters ) rather than relying on the K10D in P-TTL mode.In particular bounce seems to work a lot better with Auto than with P-TTL.Anyone else have comments on that ?
I have an old Olympus FL40 with bracket, but no longer have the Olympus camera I used it with. Would I be able to use it on my Sony A580? Does anyone know if there is an adapter cord to do this, also, would the voltage be compatible? --JudyFCAS member #125Sony A580, Pentax K10D, Fujifilm HS50http://www.pbase.com/judyjohnsonhttp://www.pbase.com/image/41812541/small.jpg
I have an old Pentax ZX-50 SLR camera with two Tamron lenses (AF 28-80mm and AF 80-210mm). Would it be possible to use these lenses on a digital SLR camera? My 16 year old daughter is interested in photography and we're looking at getting her a used Pentax K10D body just to get started.
HELP!! I recently upgraded to a K5 II from a K10d. I run Lightroom 3.6 on Windows XP (so can't upgrade to current LR version). Problem is, LR 3.6 won't read RAW files from the K5 II. Tried switching to DNG format, but still not seeing the files in LR. Been searching the net, but can't find a solution. Can anyone help? Thanks all. --Proud Pentax Owner
