Hello From Nottingham UK

Used an ME Super 30 years ago, and never progressed beyond using it as a snapshot camera despite adding Pentax 28mm, 45-125, 70-210 and a Tokina 500mm mirror. Used a Canon Sureshot then a G9, and finally returned to the Pentax fold a year ago with a K-5, mostly because I still have the old kit.
Joined a local club, but disappointed to find no other Pentaxians, so have been relying on this site as a lurker to figure out what solutions are available. I have spent the last year being amazed at the possibilities of the digital age both in terms of in camera and post processing. I fear I have left it a little late as there seems to be so much to learn!

Completely confused by the state of tethering at the moment following a location portrait training day shoot, where the limitations of the camera screen meant that the images I saw when I got home weren't quite what I had hoped for.

I will post about that in another part of the forum though.

Welcome Rayand.
You could try PK_Tether | Tethering and remote control software for Pentax DSLR cameras for tethering with your K-5. I've not tried it, but seems interesting.
Kind regards,
