Hi - joinging to maybe get an answer to my question ...

I have had many Pentax over the years, now with a K-30 which has given me some aperature issues previously. I made an adjustment to it a couple of years ago but still not working normally for photos, but I am hoping to salvage it and use it for some video shooting in my music studio.

Ahem... it might relate to “Why are the Maple Leafs better than the Habs?...”

Just Kidding Larry 😁

Any way there are lots of posts on the forum about K-30 aperture block failure.

If you use M42 lenses (or, probably, K-mount lenses with the aperture set via the aperture ring), you should be fine. That would sound like a pretty good combo for video.
