Shutter shock with small primes
Posted By Ole

Views: 940
Welcome to the club. I've switched to TAv mode so that I can keep the speed at or above 1/250s, or at or below 1/60s no matter the lens. It is more cumbersome than Av, which used to be my favorite, but there is no way around it. Live view and electronic shutter is not a solution due to the "rolling shutter effect" unless you use a tripod and the subject is rather static.

In my experience shutter shock is visible wit and with out SR, and with or without a tripod.

Other brands share this "feature" with the K-1 - it isn't a Pentax-only problem. I've made suggestions to RICOH representatives in person about some workarounds that could be done in firmware, but I've had no reaction so far.

Pre readings differ from Post Playback EXIF under these conditions... what gives?

The final exposure when using P-TTL is set during the preflash which is emitted right before the frame is exposed by the main flash.

I would therefore not expect to see the same before and after settings when in P-TTL mode.

The 1.51 update includes whatever updates were in 1.50 and all previous updates. In other words, if not done already, there is no reason to install 1.50, 1.43, 1.42, etc. Firmware update 1.51 accumulates all updates released since 1.00.

K-1 camera shake issue

Precisely. Shutter (first curtain) induced blur would be across all of the image at 1/100s, since the shutter is completely open (exposing all of the sensor) when the first curtain hits home at 1/100s.

I agree that more issues could be involved. More tests would be in order using a more suitable test scene (brick wall perhaps) and running both the shutter and F-stops over a range of values.

@Adam @D1N0 The images have been provided by the community, they are not of our lenses.

Our Super Tak (model 43801) has a red R on the DoF scale. It would thus appear that none of the images on the page are of the Super Takumar.

I think we all agree that images 2 and 4 are of the s-m-c v1 and the third image of the s-m-c v2?

I will therefore replace the first image with an image of our Super Takumar.

The theme for the official PentaxForums photo contest for January, 2019 is:

Contrasting Colors

The theme this month is "Contrasting Colors". However, whereas color theory has precise definitions for contrasting (complementary) colors and their placement on the color wheel, we adopt a more lax definition in this contest and just ask that your image provide some striking, clashing colors. Good luck!
