Video: How to change your focusing screen!
Posted By: codiac2600, 12-08-2007, 01:53 PM

Hey everybody, thought I'd start out by posting a video about changing your focusing screen. I'm going to be working on a weekly how-to video library online for Pentax K10D users and it's going to be free because thats the way I am.

Go to Photography 2.0 - Reaching the Masses with Technology and the video should be right there for you to view in all it's high quality-ness.

Let me know what you think and please post what you'd like to see as the next video and I'll start planning away!

WARNING! This is a HQ video for to keep the detail high so be warned that you will definitely need a high-speed internet connection to view this video!

Thanks, this looks easy.

I also took a look at your -censored- photography tutorial. It made me wanna do it, too! However, what you did not elaborate: why did your move from canon to Pentax feel like an upgrade? It cannot have to do with the maximum ISO... that is not too high on Pentax.

I should do the sensor clean one since it's my job at the camera store to do it and I've done more than my fair share of them.
Are you still considering doing the sensor cleaning one?
That'll be brill!
