Some interesting, albeit a bit gloomy scenes there. Colours and detail come through very well though.

A few questions:

No EXIF properties seem to have been retained in any of the images on flickr? Something seems to have stripped all that metadata out. It's handy to have it visible to look at f stop, shutter etc used with an image.

And why did you need to use the Adobe DNGConvertor? The K-x can save to DNG directly. No need to futz about with PEF > DNG conversions or stuff like that.

Ditto on the EXIF thing. I wanted to see what ISO those shots were taken in. Please don't strip out the EXIF is possible.

Flickr will show the EXIF data, if you click the "More properties" link in the Additional Info section in the right column. You get this page:

Nice shot of the fireworks. Which mode did you use ? Manual bulb setting ? Handheld or tripod and remote ?

I was about to say this as well. It seems whenever someone links to some photos on flickr that inevitably there are several quick posts about no EXIF info - it is there, just not in the image!

I am about to get this camera. A lot of these pics seem out of focus, as if the AF focused more on the closer side. Am I the only one seeing this? Is this a general problem?

It Is in the photo if the Original size is shown (if it was Ever there in the upload). Most people who complain (should say state) that they cannot see it are using a right mouse click followed by view image exif data (that would be my guess anyway). Most images people show us in flicker are images, most don't give us the actual catalog or set. The images linked are often not the originals but reduced size, which flicker does strip the Exif data from.

Example, Here's a medium sized photo (no exif attached).



Here's the link to the full sized version.. If your browser is set up for it, you should be able to right click the image and view exif data.

FULL SIZE

Neither one of them will show you the actual album where the view properties options are there. To get that the poster must show us the entire set,

Full Set Album

Or if they show us the page that contains the photo

Such As

Get the Picture??

Well, that's what any AF system will generally do if you let it pick where to focus. If it's not what you want, make sure you tell the camera to aim somewhere else.
