I think it will fit the cameras with lenses attached, as they are not the biggest lenses. But if you want to be sure, then the 450 will fit it for sure. But to be sure, find a store and try them

No they didn't, they made a serious effort in other aspects. They kept the K-mount, so you could use your excisting lenses, and no lenses needed to be developed. But yes, this makes the camera thicker.

They also kept the same battery, which goes in the K-7, K-5 etc. Which is bigger than the battery in nex 5, but also gives you more photo's. And since i do have the K-7 and K-3, swapping batteries is so easy. Don't have to look if I have the right battery, I alwasy do (unless I mix empty with full)


I still use the K-01 a lot, and it never got the credit it deserved, no it isn't the fasted camera. yes it is boxy. But it is very capable.

I just got one last week, and it is such a nice little tripod. Took it this weekend for a shoot. Also had my big tripod with me, but only used that one twice. The rest it was on the moman.

Carry on vs checked baggage for camera Equipment
Posted By Macario
Replies: 26

no not really, a bag is a minimum of 1kg with padding. So only 4kg for gear etc, and that is not a lot. But a nice trick is to put all you want in the bag and weigh it. Then take lenses etc out until uou reach the limit. Then you know what can go in the bag and what not. And at the check in, then just put what is needed in pockets, and when you are checked in, back in the bag.

Photographing a band in a bar
Posted By Macario
Replies: 32

I have the 40 and the 35 myself, but for the bar shoot, I would go with the 35. It is already super nice wide open, and will give you a slightly wider view. I bar shoots and then the 34 is my favorite.

But I think you can go down with your shutterspeed, if the band is pretty static, I would even do a few shots at 1/100. But if they move a lot, then 1/160 should be enough.

But good luck with ISO1600, I would say more realistic is ISO3200-6400, unless the stage is well lit.

I tried once to watch one of his video's, couldn't stand it.


Which camera these days make bad photo's? I don't know any of them. All the negativity is just nit picking on details that nobody will see in photo's, unless they will use a microscope. And all the other stuff is just personal taste.

Tripod...do you use, or not use.

I do use tripods. For long exposure shots. For macro work. For sports.

Long exposure shots, well that is pretty obvious.
Macro work. It does take time and patience, and it can be so much easier with a tripod.
sports. I do shoot surf with long and heavy lenses. after a while you do not want to have it in your hand anymore, and you will be happy it is resting on a tripod.

Running Bag?

If you could find them (they stopped making bags earlier this year). Clik elite had very good bags that you could use for running.
The probody sport sounds right for you. The cloudscape is also very nice, but might be too small for the K-1. Then the Obscura would be better, but I think that one will be too big for running.

21 mm or 35 mm 'walk around' on aps-c???

I have the 21 and the 35 2.4 lenses. And both are great as walkaround lenses. It also depends on my mood and where I go, which one I will put on the camera.
But then again, they are so small and light, I sometimes also just take both.

The pixelshift conclusion is wrong. The dynamic pixel shift is an extra, you can still use the tradidional pixel shift

Naneu has a trekking backpack which also has a camera compartment. Photo - camera bags and cases, rolling dslr bags, adventure dslr backpack I just don't think they will be great for cycling.
Otherwise you could look at the range of fstop gear f-stop || Modular Camera Backpacks and Accessories
