There's a plug-in for Lightroom that'll publish straight to your Instagram via Lightroom. It's called LR/Instagram. It'll post photo in the appropriate dimensions, keep the original ratio of the photo, and even puts your watermark if you have one.

Okay, seeing how it's the last week of June, and we need over 6,000 more posts for the giveaway to happen, I'm finally gonna share some shots. Hopefully someone who doesn't own this wonderful camera will get it and won't have any hesitation in shooting ISO 6400 with it. The pictures below were shot with the HD 24-70/2.8

Keyboardist's face was illuminated by a little desk light with -0.3 EV

I've used the DA*55, but I'm reluctant to take my FA*85 to a convention.


Thanks for sharing more pics. Keep 'em coming!

Excellent shots, beholder! Especially considering there was no shade. I have yet to use my 85 on cosplayers, and your photos are motivating me now.

Southern California has been experiencing a heatwave these past couple of weeks. So, imagine our surprise when water suddenly started falling from the sky in the late afternoon. These photos were taken at the Long Beach Comic Con with the DFA 24-70/2.8 & AF540FGZII on my K-1. Safe to say I was the only photog running around with no cover. :p

RICOH THETA SC Type HATSUNE MIKU Released
Posted By mamba909

Okay, I'll admit that I thought, "OMG I WANT THIS. NAO." when I saw the picture of this special edition. But as Digitalis and monochrome pointed out, hardcore collectors are gonna be all over this.

And it's not just a mere decal that makes it special. The LED lights are pink to match with her color scheme, and the shutter sound is also a unique Hatsune Miku shutter sound. That'll be incentive enough for collectors to get this one-of-a-kind product.

And for those of you wondering why only 3,939 units will be produced, the numbers '3' and '9' can be pronounced "mi" and "ku", respectively.

It truly is super cute. And she was, of course, quite popular that day. Just check out her latest Instagram post to see what I mean. As a result, I didn't get to chat with her much. Just glad that I was able to shoot her D.Va maid outfit.

I'm gonna have to follow these guys and see what results they get. Thanks for the info!



I didn't make it out to Hanadoki Con, and I'm sure we would've noticed each other since we'd be the only photogs out there with a K-1. And yeah, I saw your watermark on Mari's photo. (Nice work, btw.)

Fall is a bit of a quiet time for cons in L.A. The biggest is Comikaze (a.k.a. Stan Lee's Comic Con) in October. The other is Pacific Media Expo which is held in November, but from the looks of things right now, it might not be happening.

WonderCon is pretty nice, but it keeps getting bigger and bigger every year. Not as crazy as AX yet, though.

Amazing to see how far cosplay photography has taken you, physically and as a photographer. Meanwhile, I've just stuck around L.A. County cons... You're doing a great job with your photography, and thanks for sharing your knowledge. I haven't met anyone who uses an ND filter for their photos, and I can see how you could achieve a shallower DOF on a bright day with flash.

BTW, were you at Hanadoki Con? I think I saw your watermark on a local cosplayer's photo. And will you be at Anime Expo? Then maybe the only Pentaxians in the community will be in one place. :lol:

Silver limited/special edition version of the K-1 coming in 2017?

I was going to chime in with the same thought. I would probably have very little hesitation in buying one if they made a gunmetal version. (Provided I have the funds for it :p)

I feel like your choice of cropping is a good one. There's not much space for the viewer's eyes to rest other than the young girl's bold gaze. The original framing is too "relaxed" compared to your choice of cropping.

1) What does the future hold for the Q series?
2) Are there plans for a lower-end full-frame camera?
3) Are there plans to introduce color options for focus peaking?
4) For the K-1 at least, are they able to include a Live View AF point size selection in a firmware update?
5) Are they planning to ever offer APS-C or full-frame cameras in multiple color options like the K-50? =)

Hah hah, don't worry. I didn't know that either until I let my friend play around with my gear. I noticed that it was autofocusing when she started messing around with it. I asked her how she got it to autofocus, and she had no idea. My other friend, a Nikonian, had to point out the clutch to us. :o

Congrats, Chris! Loved your work with the 645Z, and I'm sure your work with the K-1 is just as impressive.
