Event Photo & more w/kx

For anyone questioning the abilities of the Pentax Kx for purposes other than snap shots and hobby photos let me tell you this is a very capable camera for just
about anything including professional event shooting. This the kx on bracket and metz48 with stoffen diffuser. This combo works awesome very consistent exposure 99 percent of the time. Also the small size does not weigh me down when going through a crowded club.

Focus is quick even in pure darkness as the flash has an assist beam.
My set up that works really well for night shots using kit lens is F8, iso 1600, flash rear sync, and shutter from 1/20 to 1/5 if I want to blur the lights. Not only that post processing there was very little work for me to do. I processed 1300 photos in a few hours in lightroom simply deleting the ones I didn't need and adjust exposure a bit. But very happy and very confident in this gear.
