Hmm... I don't know if it's just my system but I can't see anything but a black screen.

very nice, pity the movie is charging very slow. Could name it "Bride's bokeh"

Question: why K20 and K200? I understand the Kx for low light shooting (I presume) but why the others?

Thanks!

My computer needs a plugin to display your pictures. Plugin is not available for Firefox. Can't view you pictures.

Format

Sorry about the plug in issue. Here is another format which is low quality if you don't have divx and kind of defeats the purpose.

Kytra- my wife was shooting with the k200D and I was shooting with the k20D, My wife used the grooms K-x for the ceremony shots.

Just shot another wedding with two K20's and a K-7 myself. I'll see if I can get some pics up here once PP is done.

The video makes everything look soft and poorly shot. If you had some stills we could get a better idea.

I've never heard of that viewer program. I'd suggest that if you want a large number of people to view your work, choose a format that is readily available. Otherwise you my have problems selling your work. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's primary browser is Firefox.

Thanks for the change in image viewer format. I was able to view the photos very well. They are nice sharp photos and I think that you did a good job covering the wedding. The couple should have a good record of their big day. Congratulations.

Thanks JimH, I am glad it finally worked. It was nice to find out these cameras can shoot in doors when needed.

The AVI video is nice but most people will not know how to address the issue of the missing Divx plugin. It's not a Firefox versus plugin issue, it's just that the end-user needs to install the Divx plugin. Divx is nearly a decade old and the browser plugin for Firefox and IE has existed since 2005 so it's definitely not a new thing.




To the question/comment of Pentax and indoor shooting -
There are quite a few of us in these forums that shoot weddings and other evening events with Pentax. Both the K20D and the K10D have served me well over the past few years and I certainly expect the next Pentax model I invest on to continue serving me just as well.

That is what I saw too. Everything looked very soft. I would like to see stills because I was thinking about doing a wedding but purely for recreational purposes.
