Pentax K-1 Final Weekly Challenge: Open Theme
Posted By: Adam, 08-06-2016, 01:24 AM

It's time for the final K-1 weekly challenge. The prize will be a set of two K-1 shaped lens cleaning cloths!

I'm leaving the theme open for this challenge, so post the best pic you've taken with the K-1

@Vote4Pedro will be judging, and the challenge will close on 8/15. Good luck!

Lens Compatibility

I'm proud of this shot as it was hand held, tracking the subject in flight. I have stayed with the Pentax brand due to its compatibility. This shot was taken with a strange mix. K-1 body, Sears 2x adapter, Soligor 80-300mm lens. Lens and adapter decades old and used by my father on his K1000.

I love the K-1. Especially in low light. This image was taken around 12:30 AM. ISO was only 400. Shot with the Pentax 24-70 @ f/2.8 for 8 seconds. On a tripod of course. The noise ratio on this great camera is amazing. I"m still working on astrophotography with this camera.
