I've made some fine, large prints and still find it a very capable camera. Aside from white balance issues, its imperfections made it great, to mind.

K100d upgrade from K-x

I bought a K100d when they 1st released. My 1st DSLR after many Pentax SLR systems starting in 1973.
A few great years of shooting and then I thought it would be good to upgrade so I bought a K-x.
All the specs indicated it would be a better camera and I would be happy.
Unfortunately I sold my K100.
I was never happy with the K-x. The results were not pleasing to the eye like the K100.
Colors were dull, photos were soft, a disappointment to say the least.
After a couple of years, hundreds of tests with various settings, lens tests, focus tests and just plain
being disappointed I found a K100d with a 1000 shutter count. Bought it, sold the K-x and I'm happy again
with great color, sharp pictures and overall very good results.

Here is an image with my K100DS and Pentax-M 35mm f2.8 -- my youngest granddaughter (on the right) eating watermelon with her friend on 4 July.


Pentax-M 35mm f2.8 @ f8, K100DS, ISO200

And here is one of Ginger the papillon with the same lens at f11, but with internal flash on the K100DS:

Thanks - I thought my wife did very well, esp for a relative beginner. Having spectacular scenery all around doesn't hurt, either! I'm still processing her shots & will be adding more here from time to time.

Also can't let go...

This thread still seems to be active... a great tribute to the 6MP CCD K100D. I recently bought the K-5 and am reasonably happy with it. But the unique picture rendering from the K100D's sensor is still special, which is why I often travel with both cameras. I agree with one forum contributor who asserts that the images from the K100D do not look digital, but much more film-like...

I took bracketed shots of General Motors Headquarters in downtown Detroit and the underside of the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor with my K100D using my Tamron XR DiII 18-200mm F3.5-6.3mm (A14)lens and used Photomatix to merge the three shots

Here is another of my K100D favourites taken with the 16-45mm f4.0 and touched up artistically in Darktable. It's great fun to dust off my old K100D RAW files with the latest PP software!

Here are two of mine from recent months. Athough I have a confession, I just bought the K100's bigger brother, the K10d. It makes a good upgrade.

I used an SMC-A F4 35-70mm which has become my favorite for these types of shots.

I gave my website a complete revamp. As of this moment, all the images were taken with a K100d Super.
