Hello Ken,

Very nice shot. I wanted to ask you why you prefer the K5-IIs over the K3 for extended bracketing. Can you fill us in please?

Thanks,
Richard

Still haven't quite gotten the hang of this lens. (Nor quite gotten the hang of high ISO shooting.) I figure I'll go back and try the first shot again during the day sometime.

Thanks Richard, I'm so get used to K5 series' extended bracketing whereby a single shutter will produce 3 shots, 1 at 0ev, the other 2 shots at +/- ev depending on the number of ev steps you set. With the 3 shots, I then process with HDR and/or manual blending. I'm not able to do this on K3 as this extended bracketing feature has been removed.

Another shot of the Merlion from a different angle, with K5-IIs again.

Mine does it with up to 5 shots. You might want to look at your K-3 again.

I suppose you are refering to auto-bracketing, that's different. I usually shoot at least 30sec or more for sunset/sunrise and some night shots, if I were to use auto-bracketing, say 3 shots, I'll need 3x the timing for the 3 shots.eg. 1 min exposure, total I'll need 3mins or 5mins for 5 shots auto-bracketing. Not only its more time consuming and shooting less shots, it is also not practical to use for sunrise/sunset timing as the sun will change position every few seconds, that will make the blending process more tedious and moreover I can only shoot 1 or 2 shots of sunset.
The K5 series has that auto-bracketing feature too.

Big crop with this shot but I think it turned out pretty well




I have 2 shots of this, the wide which is shown and the other is more a portrait orientation which shows off the clouds more. Which do you guys like better?
