summer afternoon
Lens: sears Camera: k-x Photo Location: 135 ISO: 200 Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: syain, 06-01-2011, 10:58 AM

I use Sears 135 f2.8 to take these two pictures.

K-X cannot read the aperture settings of this lens.

Any good way of controlling the shutter speed?



This one is over exposed, right?

So over exposed that it doesn't even show up!

What helps with setting a correct shutter speed on all manual lenses is to set the green button "action in M mode" to "TvSHIFT" setting; this-way in manual mode pressing the button will set the shutter speed according to the camera metering.

Some manual lenses do not report the aperture to the camera, therefore it will not show up in the EXIF info.

Looks like a fun lens, I'm waiting for mine to arrive (just purchased off the marketplace).

You might not be using the lens correctly on your K-x. The camera requires stop down metering prior to shooting the scene. #2 is wildly overexposed, but that may well be due to incorrect exposure value settings.

How to do the metering? Like agsy said, use green button?

Give it a shot with the green button, see how it goes. The aperture has to be set first though, just like Ash pointed it out.

Have fun.
