K20D + Magnifier Fb + AF & MF lenses
Posted By morfic

Views: 2,108
Has anyone used the magnifier Fb on the K20D (ok, any pentax dslr) with AF and OR MF lenses?

How well does it work, how easy is it to flip it up out of the way?

Might be nice to get a little more magnification than the O-ME53 provides at times.

Thanks for any info,

Daniel

auto focus speed

I was expanding on what someone said with lesser contrast on a wide open lens, so why not focus at f/2.0 instead of 1.4 when the lens would be so much sharper there with much more contrast. (Custom behaviour)

Instead of focusing wide open where the lens is softer with less contrast. (default behaviour)

I hope this clears up what the K20D can do and what i think would make a nice custom function.

So what the K20D firmware lacks is a max aperture setting. i am sure i'd get a better lock @ F/2.0 than 1.4 and let it focus at 1.4 only in the dimmest of lights. The extra contrast should help. And i could likely not even tell that the viewfinder is darker than wide open.

Yours probably was made on a Monday. Every product has Monday runs, it's that the 16-50/2.8 seems to be only run on Mondays and every other Friday that is the real problem.

Sharpness vs Fine Sharpness on K20D
Posted By morfic
Replies: 2
Views: 2,808
I guess i was hoping for more google site: sharpness had nothing more than showing fine sharpness sharpens shadow noise more than reg. shaprness, can't say that was a revelation.
The only suggestion was to use fine sharpen for hair detail, i guess i go with that.

Would have been much more interesting if Pentax would have actually allowed us to set them individually instead of one or the other to the same amount, i'd imagine turning down sharpen while increasing fine sharpen to be useful.

No but, i find the K20D Matrix Metering far more usable than the 30D's Evaluative Metering ever was. Just because you find other metering methods to work better for you, don't think Canon does a better job at the equivalent metering type, can't comment on Nikon as i never handled one, chances are it too is not perfect.
No metering mode takes away the responsibility to make decisions regarding what we perceive as the correct exposure, especially on highly contrasting scenes.

Sharpness vs Fine Sharpness on K20D

Why can't i set them individually?
And if i choose one or the other, when does which work better than the other.
Since i mostly shoot raw, but find the K20D's jpegs also usable, i'd like to learn from your experience with sharpen vs fine sharpen.
Instead of shooting a ton of sample shots just for the sake to figure out a difference and when to apply which.


Thanks,

Daniel

K20D Firmware 2.0?
Posted By morfic
Replies: 1
Views: 2,502
I am training my new email client's spam filter and it had one it was not sure about, a Capture One email, so i ended up looking at the email instead of ignoring it, one of the new Capture One 4.5.1 features is this:

"New camera support:

*Canon EOS 50D (no support for sRaw)
*Canon EOS 5D Mark II (preliminary, no support for sRaw)
*Pentax K20D Camera using firmware 2.0"

I know i can be slow, but did i really miss a jump from 1.01 to 2.0?
