Yes, I believe so. It should work fine in Wi-Fi mode. However, this might be something that I can come up with a workaround for.



In-camera or in the program?

I got a weight of 3090g including the strap, hood, and 112mm filter. It's possible that the catalog weight erroneously subtracted the weight of the hood, so I will update it.

There's no way to be sure. However, by looking at the serial number range and appearance of the camera, you can get a decent idea of which production run it came from:

Pentax KP Now or Wait?

Image quality is the main area of improvement IMO. I agree that the camera really isn't much smaller in practice (but it's still a really nice camera with other useful improvements, such as the UI).

I would monitor end-of-year deals on the KP and make the decision then. I somehow doubt you'd be able to get it at the BF price, but hopefully close to that and/or with freebies.

The designations are as follows:
  • USB cable (I-USB7)

  • AV cable (I-AVC7)

HDMI cables are universal, you just need one with the mini C connector on one end. The AV cable is another story.

There are listings for the USB cable:

Yes, you need to change some settings, namely in the main menu as well as the custom functions. These are detailed here:

A lot of features have been added since firmware 1.0 (including 1:1 cropping), so you should install that while you're at it.

  • Theta Hatsune Miku edition (still available)

  • WG-50 with float strap & memory card (still available)

The deals will all be posted here:

It's an excellent lens, but unfortunately not fully compatible:

If you also plan to upgrade the body, the K-70 would be a great pairing for it.

This just popped up as our deal of the day on the homepage, but I figured I'd post it because there's an easy way to get this lens for even less than advertised.

Rokinon 100mm F2.8 full-frame telephoto macro lens

Right now, it's showing as costing just $356.40 on Amazon, which is over $150 below MSRP. If you use an amazon prime credit card to check out, the final cost will be 20% less, or about $280!

Does any Pentax K10D equipment work on ...
Posted By Adam

Views: 456
Other than lenses, remotes, and flashes, no. Pentax has switched over to the D-Li90 battery (for grips and all flagship bodies since the K-7) and the D-Li109 (for smaller bodies since the K-r) and has since used these two batteries consistently.

The battery and grip specs for each body can quickly be viewed here:

The adapter would need to have an aperture ring if the lens does not. Seems the adapter you mentioned wouldn't be good for DA lenses, therefore.

Also, the D FA 35mm does have an aperture ring because it's basically the FA lens with updated coatings.

Possible bug in firmware K1 with manual white balance and pixel shift?
Posted By Adam

I would look at the 4 individual pixel shift frames. If the lighting appears different in any of them, this could explain the weird results when they are merged.

An easy way to test this would be to redo everything outdoors in natural light.

Lens identification depends on the software on your computer rather than the camera.

As for firmware, updates are always cumulative.

RE 1.4x converter on K-1
Posted By Adam
Replies: 4
Views: 434
The DA 1.4x TC is compatible, but it does not offer full frame coverage with most lenses. In the case of the 300mm, there is indeed a lot of vignetting.

The 1.4x S is a manual teleconverter from the film era, so full frame coverage is a given.

You should upgrade the firmware in your lens and/or send it in to Sigma. These are per-copy quirks related to their reverse-engineering of the Pentax AF protocol, it seems.
