Maiden K5 Manual Pics
Lens: K50mm F4 macro Camera: K5 Photo Location: At Home ISO: 100 Aperture: F6.7 
Posted By: Barnster, 06-06-2012, 07:05 PM

This is my maiden shots with my new K5 with the old K 50 macro on.They were taken in pretty strong wind,so please excuse them not being as sharp.But let me just say that that with the few images that I have taken with the K5,compared to my K100D,there is no comparison.Chalk and cheese!!And thanks again Adam for pointing me in the right direction to getting this manual working on the K5.

A good start. Isn't it tempting to go outside to shoot something pretty no matter how much harder the wind and varying sunlight conditions might make it, rather than just doing a boring old test indoors. Kind of like when I started playing with extension tubes and figured I'd use the maximum length attached to my shortest lens, handheld shooting "slow" moving creatures like ants.

Well done only suggestion I can make is increase contrast and drop back brightness.

I'll be there again tomorrow when I get the chance.I agrre that it does beat being stuck inside.These K5,s are a big step up and have plenty of features,so I'll keep practicing.

Thanks eaglem.I will take your comment on board with the contrast and brightness.I was a bit keen to see the final results,so I didn't really adjust the first image properly as you can see.
