Hi there, I've recently started getting into Astrophotography, been going out to take photos every chance I get and when I can't I'm reading up online about what I can do to improve. I definitely see myself improving, that's not to say I don't still have much to learn. I'm sure like most I just started with what equipment that is already available to me which right now is my Dad's Pentax K20D. He has a number of lenses and was a great starting point but I'm thinking about investing some money...
Hi everybody :-) I'm wondering if i understood the following correctly. Pentax stated: "... As for the APS-C-size image sensor, the DA lens series, the cropping function makes it possible to use the APS-C-size center portion of an image. By changing the settings, you can also choose a 35mm full-frame angle of view. ...". What i understand is, i can use a aps-c-lens (DA), change camera settings and get a full-frame angle of view, meaning, my aps-c-lens is covering the 35mm full-frame sensor. I...

I've been testing my new K-3 using all my lenses and flash. One thing that I found a little bit unusual coming from K20D is that whenever I mount an external flash AF-540FGZ, the LCD on the flash will turn on also when I press the shutter button halfway. I know that there is a setting on the K-3's menu C4-22 where I can set it as High/Low/Off to control how my top LCD gets illuminated. The problem is when I choose High/Low, when I press shutter button, it will also turn on the flash's LCD...
Hi, After waiting for so long for Pentax FF, I finally bought myself a used K-3 to replace my K20D. Yeah I know, it's long overdue. I read about the mirror flap problem with K-3 before. So my question is what would be the best version of the firmware that is the most stable to install on K-3 right now? On pentax website, the latest one is ver 1.21 but I read in some older thread that the best is ver 1.11 Thanks in advance --'SEE BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE''I will treasure every moment in my...
Hello, I have unfortunately lost all my photo gear in an accident. My gear bag containing all my equipment got crushed under the wheels of a 40t truck. :( So I am back to square 1. I used to shoot with a Pentax K5 + Pentax K20D, a DA* 50-135 f/2.8, the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 and the F 70-210 f/4-5.6. Since I have to completely rebuild my full gear on a tight budget I have been studying several options. First of all I mainly shoot Football (Soccer that is for our US friends) Rugby Union, Polo and Ice...

Hi, I haven't been to the forum for quite a while. New kid surely takes a lot of time to take care of :) I have a question about one of my Pentax Flash AF-540 FGZ . It doesn't want to go into P-TTL mode no matter what I did. The only time it goes to P-TTL mode when I set it to Wireless mode. Before it was a hit and miss when I mounted it to my K20D. Sometimes it goes to P-TTL but sometimes are not. Now, it's completely either goes to TTL, A or M mode only. I have 2 other AF-540 FGZ and they...
Anybody using one? I picked up a used body from B&H for super cheap and I already had lenses from my old KR so I was plug and play. Yes, it's big and yes, It's loud but I don't really care about that. Good quality images, DNG files, Hyper Program mode, solid, tough feel and a bit of weather proofing are working out well for me so far. I never seem to see Pentax around in public. I was just wondering if people are using them for street work. Thanks!
