I just got a Yongnuo 560 IV which I'm triggering from the built in flash of my Pentax K-30. Using the "wireless" flash mode on the camera and "S2" on the 560, I find that it is working fine as long as the 560s' power is set to 1/4 or lower, but on 1/2 or 1/1 although the flash is firing, it is not contributing to exposure. The camera (rightly) won't let me choose an exposure time faster than 1/180 while the flash mode is active, and I've tried much slower exposures to test, but regardless it...
Hi all, As a beginner, I'm looking for a quality camera for both pictures and filming and don't really know what to purchase Pictures : I currently have a Pentax K-30 and i'm not satisfied with it. I'm looking for a camera that properly render depth, volume and colours, with a good zoom Filming : I'm interesting in filming and producing so I'm looking for a camera providing good filming features as well If you have any advice, you're welcome :) Thanks a lot!
I have absolutely 0 experience in the Pentax system. I've been looking for a waterproof camera for a while and usually kept my eyes on Olympus TG models or similar cameras. A friend is selling a Pentax K30 + 18-55 WR + a nice kit of accessories (extra battery, bag, memory card, remote and all the original things included in the package) for roughly 300$. I don't need the camera for diving or underwater sports, but living in Taiwan means that having a waterproof cameras I wouldn't have to...
Hello,I consider buying the K-S2, primarily for use with the O-GPS1 (Astrotracer mode).In order to make up my mind, it would be really very helpful if there are members that can share their experience or write their advice for the effectiveness of the Astrotracer in K-S2.I am aware of users who are satisfied with the specific functionality in K-3 II, K-30/K-50, or even older models such as K-5 II(s) but no one has yet published samples or expressed a clear opinion for the K-S2 (after the...
I have made the decision to buy a Benro Tripod (TMA38CL) . The current price is listed at $410. While researching this I came across a bundle (TMA38CLV3 ) including this tripod and also the Benro V3e ballhead. This bundle is listed at $550. On it's own this ballhead (Benro V3e ) is listed at $210. If bought individually these would be priced at $620. So it's definitely better to buy the bundle. Before I came across the bundle I was planning on buying the Sirui K-30x or K-40x. After...
I've been using Vivitar 283s and 285s for thirty-some years, one on camera, others triggered by slaves, or often just an on-camera flash bounced off walls or ceiling. There is always a bit of trial and error involved in getting perfect exposure. I would like to get the best dedicated shoe mount flash I can for candid people photography. Is the Pentax AF540FGZ II my best bet, or is something from Metz or Sigma going to do the job as well or better? --Jonathan BlocherInstructor of Art, Design,...
These images were made with my K-30. I found a black spot on one of my images of a cloud when enlarged. Thought I would check for bad pixels. The images below are not the one where I found the black spot, but these are new test images. Will describe each as a caption. Thanks for all help Shot #1 of a cloud modified with Levels & sharpened to enhance irregularities Flash shot #1 of a white card enhanced with levels & sharpening Flash shot #2 of a white card enhanced with levels & sharpening....
