Finally got the 10D into the Studio

Finally back at school know and managed to get the K10D going in the studio, i Must say a hell of alot more convenient to use in the studio then the DS, drop it in to X mode and adjust the aperture all i want, no other button presses required, the remote sensor on the back, magic. All in all very hapy with the camera, shame about the assignment, 4 hours for no result... :< ah well there is always next week. Post the shot when i get it sorted.

Apart from finding AF a bit slow-ish under modelling lights, it all worked great. However I had to use M mode at 1/125 because my radio transmitters dont sync at 180! Look forward to your shots.

Put the camera in M on the DS then to change aperture i have to hold down the Ev/Av button and turn the wheel. or use Av and get ridiculously low shutter speeds.

Easier with the K10D, simply turn the dial, also don't have to worry about WB settings are ISO settings, it does it all for me.

Why X Mode. That restricts you to shooting at 1/180th of a second. Try this. Switch to manual mode. Set your shutter speed to 1/8th of a second. Stick a half blue correction filter on to your strobe heads, take the main light and shoot it at 90 degrees to the model or product and up at about 30 degrees and see what happens. You might try to shake the camera in and out very quickly while pressing the shutter...

Tell me what you get...

I use a higher shutter speed to try limit the extraneous light as much as possible, As i am currently studying with shared facilities, and at times there being as many as 15 of us working in the studio, and not having enough gear to stop light spill, it just makes it easier to minimise the possibility of catching other peoples lights by using higher shutter speeds.

Weird!

Did you try setting your DS to 1/3 EV intervals and shoot at 1/160 ?

I used to do stuff like that during location night shoots - combining strobe, flashlight for painting, and time exposure - sometimes requiring models to stay still, sometimes not.

I think it is an issue with the radio syncs not, as opposed to the camera being the issue.

No - the delay is in the strobes (the radio trigger works fine with regular flash guns).

what kind of "radio trigger" do you use? Brand? Does it work with Pentax flash guns seamlessly? High speed sync?

thanks
