Those pictures are extraordinary pinholecam! Need to look at an FA-85 since I like portrait work also!

This is a hurry before you go and pose for me kinda shots. Fun with the girls testing my new to me cheapo Neweer TT-520 speedlite and first speedlite ever for me. Getting there.

San Diego, at the baseball game yesterday. A small Sony RX-100 in my shirt pocket for wide angle shots, and the K-30 with 55-300mm lens for sports action. Not a very exciting game -- two last-place teams, hot humid day, few attempts at base-stealing and no plays at home plate. But great hot dogs, and the cold beer sure hit the spot!

First 3 pix below from the K-30 on TAv. Lens at 1/800, f/10, ISO whatever. The K-30 autofocus is more than fast enough for action photography. Particularly for a sport like baseball, where you can pre-focus at a particular spot where action may develop. The 300mm lens gets you in so close -- you have to keep your other eye open to see what will be coming into your viewfinder. The K-30 is a far better camera than I am a photographer -- when I missed a shot, it was usually because I had the spot focus mistakenly on a player behind the one I wanted to photograph. K-30 camera and lens ergonomics are perfect for sports. You can't miss, it's a delight.

Last pic below is from the RX100, so you can see the whole stadium. Chose to use it instead of taking a Pentax 28mm lens along -- what with beer and soda splashing, dust in the air, etc. My challenge now will be to get everything I can out of the 55-300's widest setting... the 55mm end. It's not wide angle, but should work fine for portraits and detail closeups... we'll see.

Take me out to the ballgame

San Diego. At the baseball game yesterday, K-30 with 55-300mm lens. TAv, 1/800, f/10, ISO whatever. The K-30 is excellent for sports, more than fast enough if you pre-focus on a spot where action may develop. Camera is way better than I am ... missed several shots by mistakenly spot-focusing on a player behind the one I wanted. Ergonomics are superb... so easy to handle... never had to think.

Last pic below is from an RX100... I keep it in my shirt pocket for wide-angle images. Easier than changing lenses on the K-30, don't have to carry a camera bag. Love the 55-300mm lens... next challenge will be to learn the 55mm end of it. Portraits? detail shots? Pre-set for street photography grab shots? We'll see.

QCdude - Camera is K30. Lens used was SMC Pentax M 50mm f1.7 for both shots. Butterfly was done using a binocular lens macro rig I've used for several years. Description and picture of it here

Strange light at the Hotel Del Coronado

Hot day, drove to the San Diego coast town of Coronado... they were setting up a corporate food bash on the beach by the hotel... with this strange moon-like globe light. Had my K-30. Also, a Photoshopped merge of two images to make one picture of the San Diego skyline, as seen from Coronado.

I'll be in SD next week with my K30. Looking forward to getting some nice shots myself. Hope to make it to SD Zoo Safari for some animal pix.
