The main sushi chef at Daiwa Sushi, Tsukiji Market, Tokyo. Shot through window pane with 645z 150mm A. Probably my last chance to catch the market before it gets relocated.

Matt- were you fully charged before heading out? I've been out with my k30 for a couple hours at those temps and had no issues. I kept a spare in a pocket on an inside layer but never needed it.
I think one was fresh but that one got cold in a pocket that wasn't close enough to my body. The one in the camera probably wasn't fresh.
I was out of hand warmers but have gotten some more now. I can overcome all the issues I had, I just didn't prepare well enough that outing. Now it's warmer and snowing!

Hello Mike

I have the Pentax A-35mm. Is it worth to pay that much more for a FA or D-FA 35mm? Ist there a difference in the pictures?

A35 is a fine lens!
DFA35 is a finer lens!

Macro stacking focus of seed

Macro of a dried seed. I took abt 25 shots with focus stacking for each. Loaded raw files into PShop layers with auto alignment and stacking. 645z 80-160AF@160mm f4.5 with bellows extension. Minimal cropping just to remove empty edges caused by alignment. Still missed a few focus spots in the stack, but was fun exploring the use of a bellows.

Pond in the Park (Played with HDR Stacking)

I played with the Interval Composite (Average Option) on my 645z and was pleasantly surprized with the results. Pictures of water are softer (same effect as a long exposure effect) but colour tone and dynamic range seems more rich. I don't have the means of measuring it, just the way it looks in post. Sharp edges that don't move between the shots, also tend to be sharper.

Would like to hear some comments from others that have used this on-camera feature.

I've played with this on the K-1 a little and noticed this:

"Interval composite average" does a nice job on moving water and street scenes as long as there's enough frames to avoid it looking like a simple double-exposure. The only caution is that over-exposed objects on a dark background (e.g., bright white water droplets at a fountain or waterfall) turn into strange uniform-gray spots which might look stupid or surreal depending on one's goals.

"Interval composite bright" looks like an interesting way to do star trail and meteor shower images (keep the time between frames short to avoid dashed lines) but does a bad job of street scenes (a person with a light-colored top and dark pants becomes a floating torso) and white water (the scene simply fills in with nothing but bright water).

I've not tried "Interval composite sum" but assume it's effects would be somewhere between "average" and "bright".

It's definitely a useful feature in the time-lapse photographers tool chest.
