You will see the point if an SD card fails as it did with me.:)

The biggest gripe with my Sigma 17-50 is the lens hood will not lock securely in place, and the cap is difficult to fit in place.

Really worth getting the hoods if you can, I find they offer so much protection when you can't find the lens cap in one of my many pockets.

Nice shot. BTW I put lens caps in my pocket, but whatever works for you is best.

How to switch between the 2 different memory cards?

All you have to do to switch cards is pull the card you don't wish to use then replace it with the camera switched on.

K3 Crazy Mirror Sickness (Mirror Flapping Lockup) - Report Yours Here!

I had a K-5 replaced under warranty because of mirror flapping issues and the replacement is still working well.
My K-3 has been working faultlessly until today and it is now unusable. The issue is the mirror is sticking up and the camera does not respond to any of the controls after the shutter is released. The only option is to pull the battery to shut it down.
I will be ringing CR Kennedy in Melbourne on Monday and sending it to them for warranty repair.
Unfortunately after 30 years of shooting Pentax I am loosing faith in their products.
Here's hoping they have a speedy fix for this.:hmm:

Can't help with IOS as I have Android Tablet and phone. Took me a long while to get my head around the fact that you must disconnect your device from it's current network, then network camera and tablet together.

K-3 FluCard in stock at Adorama - $99 Shipped (USA Only)

I am looking for expressions of interest from anyone in Australia who would like to purchase a 16gb Pentax Flucard Pro.
I have a college who is travelling to NY soon and is willing to purchase the cards and deliver them to me.
Price is yet to be determined but will be less than purchasing direct from B&H delivered, and much less than the $199 being charged by Pentax Australia.

It's more than twice the price in Australia, come on Pentax get real! They are asking $199 plus $10 delivery. I wan't one but not at that price.
I'm thinking group buy Aussies, anyone got any ideas on a better deal?

K-3 SD Card Management

I have an issue with SD card management, this may just be a "feature" of the Camera.
I have set the cards to sequential and find if I pull card 1 to download and then replace it, the camera selects card 2.
This is of course easy to change, but being a new feature to me I forget to check it and:) wonder if card 2 fills up will it automatically then select card 2?

Standard 8 gb FLU cards were bundled with the K-3 in Australia.
These are not the FLU cards dedicated to the K-3 and are next to useless.

Stupid FLU Card is not recognised by the K-3, other than that I have a fine example.

Can honestly say when I buy a new camera the body cap comes off never to return. But that is just me, I understand it can be annoying when manufacturers get really stingy.

Congrats on your purchase, I rang DCW and they told me they were expecting stock on the 20th and that I could place an order.
They also did not know if it was coming with a FLU Card nor did they even know what a FLU card was! I have had great service from DCW for over 13 years, but now they force you to call a 1300 number and speak to someone who doesn't seem to know there stuff.
I ended up purchasing a K-3 body from Camera Warehouse Sydney for $1310 delivered with FLU card.
I emailed Teds to see if they could price match, they replied that due to lack of stock they could not help me.
Happy shooting!

Rang DCW Today they advised the K-3 will arrive on the 20th Nov, asked about FLU card they didn't know what it was!
Dropped into CRK Port Melb as I was in the area and was advised all stock was gone and don't know when next shipment is arriving.
They said I should perhaps ring Teds or Michaels, rang Ted's they didn't know when stock was arriving.
Might order one from Camera Warehouse for $1295.
