The images above are wonderful, but I'll observe, there's something about the color rendering that to my eye is different from what I've seen in K3 & K5 images. There's also a vague 3D effect, perhaps a consequence of a more nuanced tonal gradation.

You could also be perceiving the reduced DoF inherent in larger-format perspectives.

Perhaps, but if shallow DOF were the whole story, then APS-C images taken at wide apertures (f2.8, f2, f1.4) should have the same "look," and I don't think that is true.

DFA*70-200 - pushed at least two stops from a starting image shot at ISO 1600

Stuart, your work with this new camera is fantastic. I look forward to viewing each new post.

Your best friend is often the highlight of each new installment. The look, the manner in which he carries himself, he knows how to pose.

He looks like a great companion.

He also makes me think of my late girl ZoŽ. <<<<{click}


I miss her every day, even though it has been 9 years. I never thought I would have another, but seeing yours is stirring something inside me.

I only need to convince Mrs. Racer. See, I had ZoŽ before I met her. In the beginning of our relationship she admitted to being jealous of ZoŽ.

It might be easier to get her to let my buy a K-1.

Just bring home a puppy, job done!

And while she's playing with the puppy, casually suggest you could get some gorgeous pictures of the puppy if only you had a K-1!

As to my Jack, he's not as compliant as the pics make him seem.
But he gives me good practice at focusing on moving subjects and the K-1 has made it lot easier.

People watching.
I thought the young lady was lovely...then I saw the little tot and she stole the show! Fantastic shots!

Such wonderful shots in this thread, and they just keep getting better! Me...I'm still stuck in Crop Mode shooting squirrels and a few birdies. I need to expand my horizon!

Maybe a good meal and a little nap will give me some new energy?


Regards!

Good point.

FA* 28-70 @ 33mm/f8, ISO1600 and 1/800 to deal with heavy wind on top of Bernal Hill, shot with a polarizer, cropped to pano then 50% desaturated. The jpeg does not do this justice though, the PNG is far more crisp. That said, the PNG is also 98MB, so there is a tradeoff :P

EDIT: PNG link for the curious: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B18UkUdI7YizN0VIbUdPS0I5bGM

I don't know where that is, I don't want to put down any place, but I don't want to live there.

Hah, it's San Francisco. It's certainly not for the faint of heart, IMO. I also missed a much nicer backdrop by about two hours, but I still wanted to see what I could pull out of the gray skies.

Driving home from work last evening in the beautiful Vermont countryside. K-1 and DFA 100 2.8 WR Macro. Close to being dark out.

Hard to put a finger on one item. It's probably a combination of a slightly different color rendering, dynamic range, detail recording. If asked to describe it - I'd fail. Maybe impossible to pick out the K1 images from a set of 50 taken with K1, K3, K5, even K20, but somehow the K1 images posted here look slightly different to my eye. Maybe it's wishful thinking.
I'm watching for shots on the edge of capability. Low light, stuff moving, extremes between bright and shadow. As well as graduations of color.

We end up taking the shots that we can, and in time our shooting habits conform with our equipment. My impression is that the shots that people usually take are easy to capture and very satisfying. Within hours people were posting nice results. Over the summer people will be widening out their range, and we will start seeing comments describing the new edges of capability.

By next spring we will be wanting MORE!!! Pentax will be doomed!

Essentially the excellence of the camera is a factor of the time between release and Doom. So far so good.

Nice shot of the home. Is that yours?
