If anyone wants to contribute some K-5 sample,....

This was my third last - try and error - with Pentax K5 and my Tamron 17-50 / 2.8 and Pentax A 35-105 / 3.5

I tried to be quick enough but had to dump so very many blurred shots - DSLR-video and sports is not a clever thought of course.
Manual focus with little light at quick targets is not easily done if lenses are not included to your brain-muscles, especially with these poor focus-rings.

Some tele-shots are done on an old photo-tripod which can only serve halfway for the 105 mm (well almost)

Watch the slow shutter in the later scenes - time to get rid of the NDx4 - filter then of course.

Some shaky shots were tranquilized by Premiere's tool ("warp" something ?)


By the way ... second last K5 video ...
... in washing up of my history with the K5 - unsharp / shaky / shutter-madness ... but with a very sharp Tamron 17-50 / 2.8 (sharp in photo mode)

Here I still heavily worked on editing the footage because I had to look for a tool that neutralizes some terrible hot-spots in low light !
I found "Boris" for this and operated it on my Adobe Premiere ... cleaned ca. 8 spots - mostly burning white ... around 2 or 4 pixels big

I had two K5 in the end - My last video I didn't edit fully anymore - the two cameras shooting simultanously at a club-concert.
Here I found out that my second camera had no hot-spots at all ...

Quick comment on Pentax's mechanical Shake Reduction: (as in my Pentax K5 videos above)

The sensor for the SR on the K5 (as well K7) - returns back to its centered position - when the pan ends.
If you get used to it, you don't stop suddenly, but go on panning very slowly. This way you can almost catch the returning sensor shift.
This comes with some routine and muscle controle ;-)

Thanks Jeff,

something went right here - technically - and other aspects may be for questioning ..
cause this is mostly about the image - quality - of my K5-video-Pentax ...
Forget about the lyrics ... *lol*
... Shake Reduction plus sometimes needed Premiere Warp (image stabilisation) and low-light questions ...
... and some intensive Hot Pixel - neutralizing ... (Boris) ...

Those guys are quoting some mixed poetry / critical lyrics / from Germany, while second world war.
Call it a local culture-event ...
This is no "sewer tunnel" ... but a very small "air-raid shelter" called: "tube-bunker"
