Trying out water resistance on K5 at Niagara
Lens: DA 50-200mm Camera: K5 Photo Location: Niagara, Canada ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Viperwife, 06-11-2012, 07:22 AM

So I did the boat thing where they take you to where the water hits the river and you get soaked and had my K5 with me taking pics the whole time it did great no water issues having to clean the filter off constantly was a little annoying but it was a fun experience with my camera. I went to a camera store later that week and told the owner about the trip and he was horrified i did that to my camera ha ha.

The first one was taken from above on the American side

The second one is just in the mist and wet

I love the shot taken from the deck of the maid.

I don't know if you were on the Canadian side, but my wife and I were there a few weeks ago. If you'd like a few images to round out a photo journal feel free to borrow.

Norm, we stayed one night on the Canadian side but the next day drove to the American side and took pictures. I enjoyed your photos was there one that was a panoramic composite or was that with a fish eye lens?

That's the famous 10-17, it's not a very highly regarded lens, but I'm finding out myself and RioRico, and who knows how many of others, it was very important part of our Pentax gear. I bought it days after finding out about it and never go anywhere important without it.

Every Friday and Sunday night there are fire works over the falls, if I was going back again I'd plan my trip to be sure I was there one of those nights. Of course now my step son lives there an we're there all the time, but... if I were planning a trip and wanted some great pictures.

Heres a few night shots for you, from a trip in 2007.
