Hello from Helsinki Finland

Hey

I have used Pentax Sportmatic since 1967, went digital with a Canon PowerShot A610 in 2007. I retired last March and decided to pick up the old hobby more in earnest.

In June I bought a K-30 with DA18-55WR, second hand but in mint condition, little later got a DA55-200, nonWR but metal mount - must have at least a little Super-Takumar feeling, I guess.

I didnt get any software with my purchase, so I have shot only jpgs. Photos below are resized in IrfanView. Hawk and Marten shot very early in the morning (ISO 12800) within seconds of each other - those guys had a fight in the trees while I was enjoying morning coffee on my balcony - just barely managed to get camera from inside (thought it was still too dark for photos) to take these shots.

regards
Ilkka Mannio

Welcome to the Forum!

You can find lot of free software (raw editors too) from internet.
These are my best free solutions:
Raw Therapee
and
PDCU (download the software and rename the cd, SD card or usb-drive to S-SW140 )

Aitäh Aksel
But how can I download PDCU? R/P Japan download site only gives updates, I think . No hurry in answer, I have to upgrade my PC before any new programmes.

Welcome from Chicago!

I switched to RAW and Lightroom 4 a few years back, and it's been helpful. It's not extremely resource heavy on the computer, but you can get a good desktop unit now for very cheap. Or build one if you're into that. All the components are so inexpensive right now.

It doesn't matter - just download needed files and rename cd or usb-drive. That's it.
