Not sure, but I like it. The leaves look like eucalyptus.

Very true, but I fear the lenses will be a bit harder to replace

That reminds me K10 Folk. I have a stock focus screen if anyone wants it. oh and a rubber shield guard thingy. like plastic armour. It's rubbish, but someone might have a use for it?

Thank you, Paul. I think the K10D and the old Super-Tak performed well.

Thank you, wtlwdwgn. It felt good to see so much detail in a pano.

Beautifully done. Did you use any kind of specialist panoramic tripod head?

Hi Dave,

Yes, I did. Equipment details are:

Manfrotto 190XPROB Tripod (now discontinued) Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod review, 190XPROB vs 190CXPRO3 vs 055XPROB vs 055CXPRO3 | Cameralabs
Manfrotto 338 Leveling Base Levelling Base 338 - Accessories | Manfrotto
Fotomate Professional Panorama Kit with Aluminium Case Tripods & Supports

I have used this setup for many single row panos but a friend is having great success with multi-row panos and I decided to give it a try. It was easier than I expected. And then I used the new panorama feature in Lightroom CC/6 and it did a great job. The K10D and a 40+ year old Super-Takumar also contributed!

Mushroom under a pine tree. K10D and DA 18-55mm kit lens. A great combo.

Thanks for the info Ray. You've convinced me that it's time to get a proper panoramic head. Love the mushroom shot -- I never got anywhere close to that quality with my own 18-55mm.

Pentax Anti-Shake let me down --

I was photographing the Brentwood ( Essex UK) Mayor-making Ceremony from the Public Gallery and used my K10D with 'anti-shake' set to 150mm as I had the 75-150mm f4 SMC Pentax-M lens on although I really needed a 200mm f4 -- anyway, I set ISO 1250 and 'AV' exposure mode and full aperture and all photos had Shake although the 'EXIF' said I was getting 1/60th and 1/50th second shutter speed -- also-- do you think I was getting some of my usual 'Back-Focus' troubles which is a regular occurrence with my K10D ?
