My K10D was great for flowers too!







The colors were great and had such a solid feel in my hands.....great camera!

I used to do some HDR with the K10D too...it was fun!


Regards!
Rupert, those are great shots. That 2nd one, the white flower, in particular - I know how hard it is to get that shot just right. Bravo!

Thanks! The K10D was a pleasure to use, if you could keep the ISO low it made very few mistakes in color or clarity.

It did a good job with reds and yellows too....both can be difficult.




....fond memories of the K10D!

Regards!

That is very sharp, Paul! Great composition, too. I think you have a kit lens that is better than most. And are talent too, of course

Good detail there, Paul. Long live the kit lens.

Don't bother Ray Raw files make it way to easy for us now.

I hardly shoot out of auto WB, I to found the K10 to be pretty darn good. Oh, in the shade on bright days it used to be confused, but raw files to the rescue.
Despite tromboads' advice, I decided to try my DGK (Digital Grey Kards) for the first time. I did not use the manual method in the K10D manual as I found that the rear LCD is too small to properly judge the white on the white card.
I took an image on my back patio in shade on a cloudy day and then went into ACR and the Temp and Tint settings were 5400 and -1 respectively. I then took the White Balance Tool and clicked on the white card and the settings changed to 5150 and +4 respectively. There was a marked improvement in the image. I then set the black and white points to -4 and +73 respectively and the image looked even better.

It was a worthwhile exercise and I might use those cards again. There are plenty available on eBay: grey cards | eBay

and the prices are much cheaper than I paid for mine. Give them a try. You might be pleasantly surprised. I was.

Thanks CR, my kit lens is the old v1 that came with my K100D. It's served me well As far as the "talent", well thanks, but even a blind squirrel will find a roasted peanut once in awhile (as Rupert would say)

@Ray: Thanks for the comments! Viva la Kit Lens

I was going through my archives and found this one taken with my v1 18-55 mm kit lens. That lens performed well for me.

I want to buy a 50 mm or less lens, but I not find something at reasonable price outside of Russia.
The problem with Russian sellers is the absolutely untrusted Russian post.I Have bad experience...

Hi there.

I'm having a problem with my beloved k10d.

After a handful of photos it says card locked and refuses to save any more photos.

I've reformated two cards and I'm getting the same problem. Any ideas?

Both cards are 16gb.

Are you using the latest firmware? 1.31 I think...

Well I finally dusted off the old K10D and charged the batteries. I have not used it since November of 2014. I took it with me the other day while out at the Gardens. Man I had to remember where all the buttons are at. I mounted the DA*50-135 on it and took a few photos. I got there right at closing so I did not have a lot of time. Felt good to use it again.















Try as I may I cant not duplicate those reds on my K3.


A crop of the reds, almost no post processing here, there are times when this old CCD sensor still rule and this is one of them.


On the downside I found that the sensor is terribly dirty. I am going to try and use the large Rocket Blower but I have a feeling it really needs a good cleaning.

I have had my K10D about five years now. I have looked at upgrading to a newer camera, but keep talking myself out of doing so! Love the results I get from the old K/M/A lenses.
