Hello All I  used D5000 with 55-200mm VR  for sharp portrait and also i have used other cameras such as Pentax k-x and K50 with 55-300mm that gave sharp images but before 2 years , i found Sony a65 with SAM 55-200mm gave better IQ.  Now im interesting in different Nikon  cameras with 85mm 1.8G for sharp portraits. I found in some reviews that Nikon D5300 gave excellent IQ and better than D7100. i also wrote that D7200 and D7100 have better focusing system than D5300. I like D5300 for the...

I am looking to get a tripod soon. I would like to keep the total including ball head under $200 USD. I currently have a Fujifilm S1 and in the coming months I plan on getting a Pentax K50. The tripod will be mostly used for landscapes, long exposures, and a little bit of astrophotography. Portability would be nice but I would rather have stability and strength if there is a trade off. I am totally new to the tripod market so I don't really know what direction to go. I found one that seems to...

Does anyone know of a way to determine if LENR was on or off in my RAW files?  I'm trying to go back into my night photos to determine if I had it turned on or not. I shoot a Pentax K-50 and its setting is actually called Slow Shutter Noise Reduction which is just their name for LENR.  I've looked at the properties and it doesn't show anything for me. My RAW files are DNG out of the camera if that matters. Thanks in advance. keithz

Hi! X-mas is getting closer and I want to buy a fish eye lens for my girlfriend who are going to Antarctica. She has a Pentax K-50 I don't have much knowledge about lenses and compatibility between brands so I thought I might ask here first for directions.It will be used mainly for landscape photographs and to take pictures of colonies of animals etc. The budged is pretty slim so I wonder if you could get a reasonable amateur lens for 150£? I wont have any troubles buying used items if there...

I have had this camera for just over a year but now the shutter speed is so slow that either the pictures are extremely blurry of so white washed that you can barely see the subject.  Indoors or out I am having trouble.  My knowledge is limited but hoping for an easy reset or setting suggestion.

Hello everyone! I realize this is a question a lot of people have asked. I've done a lot of research. Like most people I feel a bit lost with all the different choices that are now available. This post might get a bit lengthy but I want to include enough information. So here it goes: My photography experience: studying beginner. I've done a lot of reading on photography basics/essentials, follow various photography blogs & watched videos on Creative Live/Lynda.com. So I kind of have a grasp...

Hi all - I'm very new to DSLR photography, and the Pentax K-50 is my first DSLR. I have 3 lenses - kit 50-200 mm zoom, kit 18-55, and an f1.8. I love to "explore" and take pictures of landscape. I find that when I take closeups - with any of those lenses - they turn out pretty decent. However, when I take shots of more distant landscapes like this one, they turn out very faded / washed out. I'm assuming this is something I am doing wrong as a newbie, and not an issue with the camera. Here are...

Please Help. Any Macro that you may have captured with this camera and can...

Does anyone know of a trustworthy vendor selling K50 refurbs?  My K50 has gone bad in less than 18 months.  Repair will probably run about $200 (for shutter/aperture issue), and I'll be without the camera for up to six weeks.  I'm wondering if I could get a good refurb for a reasonable price, and have it delivered faster.  I'm wary of using the manufacturer's authorized repair service in US, as I've seen some unfavorable reviews. This is my first DSLR camera, and there's a lot I don't know....
