My ancient K100D was stolen and insurance has luckily replaced it with a brand new K30! However  I can not get it to work like either the K100 or my K7: When using flash, either popup or the Metz 58 AF2 I have noticed the following issues (others I am sure) using the 18-55WR: Av consistently sets the shutter speed low.  At 55mm shutter speed is 1/40 zooming out to 18 it drops to 1/15.  Changing aperture or ISO does nothing to these shutterspeeds selected by the camera.  With flash down, it...

Hi, I'm looking to buy a camera for about $800-850. I really want one that takes, obviously, amazing pictures but also has video. I really want to take travel shots, low-light, kids and video. I have no clue what one to buy, as I've tried to choose between the three I think they all seem equal. Some have something the other one doesn't and vice versa. I also noticed in a video from youtube that the Nikon doesn't capture the true color of the subject as well as the Pentax does. But is that...

I have a Vivitar 75-205mm close focus lens with the P-mount adaptor.  Is it possible to use this lens in manual mode with the Pentax k30?

Hi All,  Yesterday I posted a question to help choose between k30 and d5200. And now, thanks to some detailed replies, I've decided to go for the nikon.  However, going through more details & reviews, I'm now confused between the D5200 & D7000!  I understand that the D5200 has the better sensor, But the D7000 has more features.  Both are similarly priced and fit my budget.  Which one do you'll suggest? and why?

Hi All,  I am considering to buy either a pentax k30 or a nikon d5200 as my first DSLR. I was hoping I could get some expert opinions on both of these cameras and how do they compare against each other.  I would have avoided to post this question, but I wasn't able to find a good comparison between the two cameras.  Living in Dubai, I probably will spend much of my time learning photography by shooting buildings, architecture and such.  As I live in a region heavily tilted towards Nikon &...

some cameras have huge amount of pixels, for us that rarely blow up images beyond A3 it might seem odd to use soo many pixels (unless you take pics of birds at long distances and want to crop away a lot). is there any advantage of setting the camera to a lower resolution? say from 24MP to 12MP, ie on each sqrt(2) less pixels. What really am asking is : do modern cameras use this loss of "extra" information to improve other aspects than sheer space resolution, i.e. light sensitivity, noise...

Hi, I am looking to buy a camera for a 14 day safari through Kenya that I am going on next  as part of my zoology degree. Due to being a student, the expense of the trip and a beginner in photography, I do not wish to spend over £700 on one camera just yet. I would like to capture decent pictures but IQ is not the be all and end all. I have narrowed it down to two different cameras, the Pentax K-30 and the Fujifilm HS50EXR. The Pentax K-30 with the 18-55mm WR + 50-200mm WR lens kit is...
