That CCD sensor sure does shine. Steve you are going to make me charge up the K10D batteries and fire it up.

It's still a viable pinhole Michael.

Yet another car show. I shot a hot rod show last weekend with the K-3 and the Sigma 17-70 (which is normally on my K10D) and this weekend there was an Austin Healey car show and I decided to use the K10D with the DA 18-135 WR that came as the kit lens on the K-3. The K10D and the 18-135 made a great pair. I just love the images that the K10D produces.

One of my favorite shots with the K10D......I did love that camera!

1/20 Handheld f 6.7 ISO 560 @ 500mm


While I loved the shots rendered, high ISO shooting was very frustrating. My K5IIs is not, even often up to ISO 8,000. Still, I do miss the difference in images, the K10D was superb in the right light.

I gave mine to a shooter that was still with film and wanted to go digital but couldn't afford it. She has enjoyed it greatly, so I have no regrets.

Regards!

I enjoyed looking at the full set on Flickr. Great stuff, Ray. The 18-135 seems to suit the K10D very well.

EDIT:
Here's one of the sun setting through the mist at Merrivale Stone Row a couple of hours ago this evening. Xposted.

That is a very eerie and intriguing shot, Dave. Beautiful soft tones.

Thanks for your kind words re the Healey shots. The club has asked me if they could use some of them in their promotional material. I was thrilled that they liked them that much and, naturally, I said yes.

I can certainly see why! Those are some fantastic shots, Ray - love those old Healeys. Dave, great image from you as well (as usual!).

Thank you, Paul. I was in my element. It was a fun day seeing all those magnificent Healeys and it brought back memories of the days when I used to work at BMC (British Motor Coporation).

Going through some old K10D photos from 2008. This one was at ISO 800, people always complained about the K10D above ISO100. Taken with a junky old Takumar 28-80 manual zoom worth about $20 today.

Ray love all the shots, especially the one with the engine. Man they don't build them like that anymore. I really am going to have to charge up the K10D batteries.

I found that too. So, it's not as weird as it sounds.

No it is not weird. Outside in bright light I could get away with ISO1000 just fine. Indoors or late at night it was another story. Dark areas just would not clean up. Doing night shots I never went over ISO100, with the K3 I goto 3200 and don't think about it.
