Here are a few shots taken yesterday with the 77 ltd, the second through the window of a streetcar, the first in what I would have thought were impossible light conditions.
Those look plenty good to me.

I have to say I am not particularly impressed with the K1s high ISO performance. Yes, it is better than my K5IIs,which was pretty good itself, and undoubtedly better than the K3, but if I could special order a K1 with a 16-24 MP sensor, it would be my choice over the 36 MP. Low light ability is more important to me than all that resolution for the small images I mostly use.

As for flash......I am no flash fan, though I do see some that have mastered the use of flash, I am not one of them. I need a lot of hard work in that area before I can perform acceptable flash shots. ...but I will say that from my limited use last night,the 540 flash unit performed very nicely on the K1.......the failure was on my part where I should have gone manual instead of Tav and set the ISO around 3200 instead of the 12800 that was chosen by Tav.

That is the problem with shooters like me that are not serious enough to avoid mistakes and depend more on luck than skill. I know the right things, but am not serious enough to implement them. Some call it laziness.......and they are probably right?

Anyhow, so glad to see you here with the K1....with FS here too it is like old times! We had fun then, we will ave fun here too!

Best Regards!

That's a very pleasing, understated scenic.
Are you using the earlier version of the 10~20mm with removable hood, or the later version with permanently attached hood? I suspected the first version of the 10~20mm with removable hood might require less cropping when used on a K1 in FF mode.

The K1 has amazing colors and Latitude: This is a single shot.
That is the kind of shot that makes upgrading to the K1 completely worth it for the dynamic range. BTW, earlier, I posted the shot of the bird taken into the sun because I had taken a shot of another bird on almost the same branch with the K3, and was unable to pull much detail from its head (though the silhouette was pretty nice). The K1 did it with just some shadow adjustment in the raw conversion.

James, that first photo with the skateboarders is fantastic; lovely muted evening colours and lighting, and perfect depth of field with a real 3D pop.
Many thanks for kind words, Mike and FS!

I once owned the Sigma 10-20 and could never do much with it. If I could have used it as well as you did in that wonderful shot...I'd still own it!

No mama was on the ground searching some seeds for one of her three babies. She had a lot to do : opening sunflower seeds and feeding all three on different branches
What a relief! I was worried sick, but now feel all better! I trust that none of your gourmet meals would ever require new parents or little baby Woodies? Just keep posting those wormy looking pasta dishes, as long as I know they are saving the lives of those little wonderful birdies you post, I will try to like them better!

They will be watching for him!

LeRolls..... I was noticing some of the squirrels gathered around their Big Screen monitor in the woods and they were all hyperventilating......I figured this oppressive heat and humidity was the source of their panting......but on closer inspection I found them viewing your latest post. Seems they have developed an app that notifies them when you post.......I hope they will share it with me!

One from earlier this morning...squirrels claim to have ecxellent bokeh......and they don't "fowl" the air like worthless birds.

He did mention that he is also very handsome! The FF Crop from a FF camera! Gotta love it!

What lens is this?


Are you asking this question of anyone in particular? If so, you should try quoting that person's post. Otherwise, it is not clear what lens you are referring to.

Does anyone have a wide angel lens for film they want to sell that lives in bc


If you are searching for a particular lens, try posting a thread in the wanted section of the Marketplace. This is not the appropriate place to be soliciting for equipment.
