Hey everyone! Greetings from Prague, Czech Republic! I am NOT an expert when it comes to cameras/ photography. It's my passionate hobby. I started taking photos on (not so great) point and shoot film cameras. I then wanted to buy a DSLR and researched which one I should get before deciding getting more experience with a better film SLR: Pentax MX & M50/1,4 lense (it's my baby) That said, I would like to buy a better quality compact digital camera that I can easily travel with and takes good...

Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me identify this camcorder and maybe even give me some advice on VHS cameras? thank you. So i have been looking for a VHS camera to use in order to make films. Now i know pretty much nothing about VHS cameras and it only stuck an interest in me when i realised it fit my aesthetic perfectly and that although the quality may not be great and it may not be easy or cheap to run one of these things, that was part of its charm. I have been wanting to purchase...
Hi! I took this photo from my balcony in Bangkok last night. I bracketed 3 shots in various exposures to merge them into an HDR in Lightroom. I love how good Lightroom's HDR function works.

Since I've already tried the Sigma even on a different mount, I know what I will be getting into if I went that way but the local price is still a bit prohibitive being around US$1000 (converted to my local currency). And as of the HD 35 Limited (around US$780), I have a few questions especially for the owners with a K5II/s or K3. 1. How fast is...
My parents own a Pentax Optio M50. About a month ago it took normal pictures. Pictures taken over the last two days, however, look bizarre. A sample image is shown below. Taken recently with a Pentax Optio M50 The image above is typical of what one can see in the LCD display in the rear of the camera. Histogram-like patterns appear over bright areas of the image. I have read through the manual and tried changing numerous mode, exposure, and display settings. There has been no change. I...
