The Next Generation?

The improvement Pentax has made with the K20 is only half of what I'm waiting for. I would hope the next release "K30D" will come with greatly improved AF performance. Pentax has invested a lot of energy into the DA* line of lenses. The next logical step would be to "beef" up the AF capabilities of the camera. Right now I'm shooting both Pentax (K10) and Canon (40D) and have to say that I'm very fond of the Canon AF system and the dynamic range. That's my opinion. I do not desire to quibble about brands. I will say that I'm very impressed and still favor the initial color output of the K10 more than the 40D. However, I shoot in Raw so it's no big deal. I get beautiful output with both systems.

Ben, there are two things I wanted to touch on.

1) I read in another post that you post with ACR. Those studio photos were awesome BTW!! I'm wondering if you've ever taken a look at SilkyPix Development Studio? If you did, what did you think? The reason I ask is because I personally have always favored the color rendering of SP over ACR and since you are a pro face for Pentax gear here on the forum, I thought you might have leveraged that resource.

2) After spending some time in the Canon online community, I ran across a very interesting topic on Dark Noise. Canon EOS 40D Dark Noise Histograms I'm wondering if this information applies in the same way to the new K20D cmos sensor. Could ISO 160 be cleaner than ISO 100? I'm wondering if anyone has run tests like this on the K20D.

Take Care and Keep Inspiring! I do appreciate it,

Chuck

K200D noise vs K10D

Mike,

You are correct in the fact that in brightly lit scenes 1600 ISO shot comes off looking much better. I felt that the statement about faster shutter speed might be a bit misleading to the OP. I think your right when you say it would look like a "U". I did about an hour of test shots to see if this was the case. I didn't find anything conclusive. I ran the K10 with a Tamron 28-75 @ ISO 1600, f2.8 through f32 in aprox 1 stop increments and from what I can tell the noise levels aren't appreciably better or worse. I did notice about a random 1/3 stop variation from aperature to aperature which makes it almost impossible to determine exactly how much noise is being generated on each shot. Apparently, manually or with metering the f4 on my Tamron opens slightly more resulting in a better exposed image with good sharpness and less noise. The shot at 2.8 was a little soft but I couldn't see any difference in noise amount.
In conclusion, I don't see anything to substaintiate my earlier claim. I'm reading too much. Need to go out and take more photos and stop splitting hairs. Here are a few samples just to show I did follow up.

Chuck

4 - 100% center crops. All images taken in incandescent light at 1600 ISO. Shot in raw, post processed with SilkyPix DS3.0. No sharpening or noise reduction applied. In camera NR was off.



f4 @ 1/5 sec



f11 @ 1.6 sec



f16 @ 3 sec



f22 @ 8 sec

K200D noise vs K10D

Mike,

I would say from what I've read and the experience I've had with the K10 and K100 that the opposite of what you said is true. The longer exposure (1/20) will yield less noise than a shorter exposure (1/250) for the same ISO for a frame with the same overall exposure. The sensor has longer to sample the light, therefore more photons hit repeatedly in the same pixels yeilding a more accurate rendering of the color for that sample. I've noticed that when using Auto ISO in Program mode on the K10, the camera will set the shutter speed down to 1/30, and I believe saw one time to 1/15th. I guess it knew SR was on!

Hope that makes sense.

IMHO Chuck.

Those are the same tips my wife and I used to shoot our first wedding.
My tips based on the one experience:

1) Tripod is a must if the sanctuary is dark. Helps to free you up when you do formals. Also allows you to shoot sharp telephoto at 1/30th using 2 sec timer. I used the inexpensive Tamron 70-300 wide open and got some great shots indiscriminately during the vows.
2) At lest one extra off camera slave strobe with umbrella for fill during formals. Mount high caddied about 12 ft away to right or left slightly in front of you so your on camera strobe triggers the slave. Shoot all manual, flash as well. Get there early and experiment with what ever warm bodies you can find. Rehearsal is perfect for this. Just be mindful of night/day where the lighting conditions can change. Check for busy backgrounds and avoid if possible.
3) Ask couple if you can use flash during the ceremony. This can make a huge difference in final output. If not, test your low light lens capabilities and make sure (even with shake red.) to maintain 1/125 s shutter speeds. Use a lower ISO 400-800 and pump up post if you have to. Better dark and sharp than bright and blurry.
4) If the places where you are shooting have incandescent lighting (2800 - 3500K) find a sheet of amber warming gel, mask your flash heads and shoot with white balance around 3000K. Boy does it make a difference. (gets rid of the mustard yellow backgrounds) Remember to comp up 1ev for drop in light output.
5) The assistant tip is one of the most important. Having two cameras is a must or another person/preferably female with DSLR will really make a difference. (Especially of the bride getting ready) I don't think my wife and I would have been half as successful if either of us had to do it alone.
6) 2G mem cards and shoot RAW!! This will give you the most flexibility in post.
7) If outdoors, be careful with fill flash and the white dress. Try to use the sun from and angle and fill the shadows with the on camera strobe or even better a strobe and umbrella. Just keep in mind that the sun and flash combined can blow out the white dress. Your Pentax will try to under expose this so you may need to comp up. A gray card can help if you have the freedom to use one.


What I would do differently:

1) Shoot all flash shots landscape!! OR, invest in a flip frame. Believe me, you don't want to clean up the side shadows in 50+ shots.

2) Invest in a couple of good portable studio strobes and wireless triggers. The slave flash and umbrella works well but you always get what you pay for.

3) Rather than shoot the wedding procession as they walk down the isle, it would be much easier to set up something in the entrance and have each pair pose before they enter the sanctuary. I had to use flash during the procession because it was way to dark. The brides father blinked just as I took the shot. It was a one time deal and the shot didn't work. Also, even though I had pre-positioned the camera on tripod and had set the exact spot to take each shot, the couples seemed to favor the far side of the isle rather than the center and the subjects were off center in the final photos. Cropping helped but the position still looked very unbalanced.

Conclusion:

We had a great time!! There were some challenges but for the most part the quality of our output was very professional looking and the bride and groom were thrilled.

See some examples: Esther Portraits : photos : Recent Weddings - powered by SmugMug
page 1 are candids of the bride a week before. Page 2 has some shots taken with the Tamron 70-300. One of them, my wife just happened to flash when my camera timer went off. The light across the grooms face really helped to add some punch to that one. Fun stuff....and that is the key. To have fun!! All I can say is do your best to prepare, know your limitations, and enjoy yourself....you get to take a lot of photos!! :p

Silkypix and ICC printer profile problem

FDM,

Silkypix does not use color management for printing. I don't know what printer you use, but when I hit print in Silkypix, I can go to Printer Setting then Properties next to the selected printer and set CM there. I use HP so everything is SRGB for me. I had a Kodak Pro that had to use CM, so I would print everything from Photoshop E3.0. I never liked Silkypix's print layout. I use Picasa for most of my printing now. It's screen to photo output are excellent IMHO. Picasa does not support print CM but it is free.

Good Luck,

Dust or what?
Posted By Chuck Lee
Replies: 19

ecce38,

Don't panic. As long as you change lenses, your going to occasionally get dust on the sensor. There are some things that help before running to the local camera tech for 40-60 buck cleaning.

1) Do a mirror up sensor cleaning command. Take the lense off with the camera body opening pointed down. Hold the body in this position close to (but not directly over) a light source so that you can see the sensor. (actually it is the low pass filter in front of the sensor) Do you see any dust particles? If so, use a bulb blower (or if you must, a Giotto Super Rocket Hurricane blow the toupee off your neighbors head from 60ft. blower) to blow the dust off and out. It may take several tries but if you can no longer see the dust, chances are it's no longer there. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it all off the low pass filter. If it is, and it's not moving around, you will need professional tack type cleaning. The dust may be welded in place.

2) If that blower method is successful, chances are you now have dust and crap (like hair) on the focus screen which is now driving you crazy because your beautiful clear matte viewfinder has specks. This won't appear on your images but is very annoying. In trying to blow the focus screen off you will inevitably blow dust into the chamber between the focus screen and viewfinder lens and possibly back on the sensor. It is now impossible to remove this dust from the backside of the focus screen without having to remove it. So, if you can live with a little dust on your focus screen and your pictures are clean you've got it. Otherwise, take it to the proffesional. Removing and installing the focus screen is not for the faint of heart and if you scatch it there is no user installable replacement for the K100D other than after market split focus screens. If your using a K10 you can get another from Pentax for a price.

3) Always change lenses with the body opening facing down. I've seen camera store clerks lay the body, lens off, opening up, on counters while changing lens on a DSLR in the store. All I could do is shutter. No pun intended. Inspect the rear of the lens to make sure the lens your installing is clean and try to be as expeditious as possible when swapping your lenses. Always protect that body opening. If there's wind blowing or a fan running try to get away from that. Hold the camera down inside your camera bag and change lenses there if at all possible.

4) If you use Photoshop and for some reason you have dust spots on your pictures like the one above, zap em with the healing brush tool. Piece O' Cake.

Just remember, a little caution when changing lenses and a little puff from a bulb blower from time to time will keep you from plopping down extra LBA dollars for sensor cleaning at the local shop.

And believe me, I've been through it all and survived. :D

Good Luck :)

K10D focus issues

UnknownVT,

Thanks for the info but that issue was covered by Pentax and it was previously mentioned above in one of my posts.

"I found an article on dpreview about a key selection sequence for getting into the debug routine of the K10 firmware 1.1 and actually being able to adjust the front/back compensation. Pentax has since disabled it in later fw releases. With a very important wedding shoot within two weeks, I called Pentax tech and got transfered to 2nd tier at CO. I was hoping that the tech guy would agree to help me out over the phone and give me a way of adjusting the f/b in the firmware. Of course, that's out of the question...V-8 moment. "

Good researching though. Wish more people would before posting.

Take Care,

K100D - Why Are My Images Disappearing?

Mike,

Vista or XP or Win98?

I have a feeling, hunch, something another that the camera software is flagging those files somehow. The camera doesn't show them to you because they are flagged after downloading to your computer. Go to WalMart and buy a USB 2.0 SD card reader or better yet invest in another SD card that comes with an easy to use USB reader. Using that, copy the pictures to your computer using windows explorer and put the card back in the camera. 10-1 you'll see them on the camera.

My two belated cents,

PDL,

I'm confused here. Why would you re-format your SD card? I've taken over 10K photos with my K100 and we're somewhere around 9K with the K10. I've got one 4G two 2G and two 1G cards and never had an issue over writting files on them. They follow the fat32 system just like a hard drive or any other storage device or at least that's what I thought up until I read this post.

I've also had an issue where my wife accidentally deleted around 30 photos from an important event. She had used "move" in windows explorer to get the images from the card to the computer. The card had not been re-written to yet so obviously the files were still there. Of course, if you viewed it with windows explorer it showed 0 files. I have an file un-delete feature that came with Fix-It Utilities and was able to rescue the entire batch from the supposed blank card. If I had reformatted, those images would have been gone forever.

Splain Please what this reformat is suppose to accomplish,

Chuck

What tickles me is looking at old film post cards of national parks and scenic places. The saturation is through the roof!! That's about the same result you get with over tone mapping. Sometimes the outcome is really cool but most of the time It's annoying. In SilkyPix I turn up the Gamma to 1.70 peak, adjust black level until histogram lum. is touching left border and back down top end with exposure comp and I can develop close to +3 ev beyond the raw photos gamut (if I'm using that term correctly). If need be, apply a tad more saturation to deepen the colors and I've got pretty close to what I would get with a -.7 compensated Tiff tone mapped in Photomatix.

My two cents,

What flash on my K10D?

Thanks Will,

Yes, you can get the same effect by going wireless, and I plan to, when the Sigma DG Super gets back, I'll try the wireless setup just like you pointed out. The problem is that my wife has a hard time shooting one handed. So, I'm currently shopping for flip frames. Omega has one that supposedly allows you to shoot with your "hand on top" H.O.T. when you rotate the camera into portrait position. She has even a harder time rotating the camera with shutter release bottom right. Then the problem becomes the side shadow that is cast by the pop up. Interestingly enough I talked to a pro this week that said he only shoots in landscape at weddings for this very reason. He crops down 8 megapixel jpgs to create portraits and says they print just fine. I should have done the same at this first wedding shoot because being the resolution nut that I am, if I could fit the particular group into portrait I'd do it. Even though I had two fill umbrellas set up with full manual 130 guide no. flashes it was not enough to cancel out the side fill created by the shoe mount flash ( 80 gn) on the camera. Those were the only shots where I feel I missed the technical aspect and neither of us are real thrilled with the outcome. All of the lanscape photos turned out beautiful!! It is a learning process.

I'll truthfully say that if I had know about the ProMasters before I wouldn't of bought the DG Super even though it is a really good value based on the choices at the time. As I said in the previous post, the dual strobe option, with a replacable module make those particular strobes IMHO the best value in town (especially the pricing on the Quantarrays from Ritz). I'm glad to see Pentax support growing for some of these 3rd party devices. I'm not getting any warm fuzzies talking to Ritz about their Pentax support. C, N, S, & M

Will, your contributions to this forum are very informative and I've learned alot from reading them. KUTGW. Your observations recently on Picasa's sharpening algorithm was dead on! I've admonished my wife, for a while now, not to use it anymore. Unsharp Mask works 10 times better and I'm finding in the last few months that I'm even using that more sparingly, 100 - 150 rather than 200 - 250. One another note. Will, have you tried SilkyPix? The only reason I ask, is that you seem to be very technically minded and I have a feeling that you'd really like the way that program handles pef files. I think your an ACR guy. And no, SilkyPix isn't compensating me for my plugs.

P.S. I've viewed some of your gallery on Picasa. Great Pics!! Are some of your latest with the new Tamron 18-250? I'm still watching the pricing on that lens along with several others. I'd like to see examples of the 18 end, the 75-135 middle and 250 end, all at open aperature. I love the 28-75 f 2.8 and I have to say that for the money I've found a great value in the 70-300. That first one at the alter was 300 wide open @ 5.6. That's not something I'd like to make a habit of, but the pro I talked to loved it.

Thanks Again, Sorry for the Junior Member Ramblings

I'm curious........

Does anyone worry about ccd dust when running around a wedding swapping primes?

I've got the usual Super Taks 50, 105, 135 and a SMC A 50 1.7. I even bought a split focus screen and practiced 2 weeks in advance. After all that I chickened out and on my K100 used the 18-55 kit for informals and reception, the el-cheapo Tamron 70-300 on a tripod during the service while my wife used the K10 wt Tamron 28-75 f2.8. We used the K10 wt Tamron for formals which was perfect because once the umbrellas were set, the tripod was set, I could zoom in and out depending on how many people were in the shot. I didn't have to move. I changed lense twice. once to put on the tele zoom and once more to put the kit lense back on. my wife didn't change lenses at all. I have yet to find any spots to heal in post.

I'll have to admit. Way too much stuff going on to play around with the primes.

Stratman,

You still have choices. Sigma nor Pentax have dual strobes. I currently use a $85.00 Quantarray 9550 Quantaray QTB-9550D Twin Bounce Flash for Digital AF or Manual - 531660975 - RitzCamera.com with a $35.00 Flash Module QDA-AF (with illuminator for low light) for pentax SLR. (Couldn't find a link but I know it's available.) I recently discovered that the Promaster 5750DX is identical to the 9550. I took mine to a local camera store that sells them and we compared them side by side. I then did the same as eagle2 and emailed Promaster to find out they have a 7161 module that uses P-TTL. Whether or not it works with the 9550 will be interesting but the pin out is identical. What ever Chineese company mfgs these is on top of things. Scenerio: I by a 250- 350 buck dedicated single strode flash like the DG Super (it's in for rechip right now - only a month old -Sigma4Less) or the 540. I'm at some event and I turn around and POW!! I hit the flash body against someone or something and break the plastic ears of the hot shoe. What now? Send it in for repairs with a very large bill. If I own a Quantarray or a ProMaster 5000 series I simply buy another base module. I also have the freedom "God forbid" to transfer the flash body to another brand of camera because I can buy a module for 35-70 bucks. I've used the Quantarray for years with film and with digital and never had a single problem. Honestly, I abuse the heck out of it. I love the dual flash bounce head with secondary fill. I posted a wedding shot recently on another thread as an example. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/11526-lens-suggest...portraits.html The only problem that I have with the new ProMaster which is completely compatable with the K10 is that is does not have a module and it has "METAL" hot shoe ears. That is not a good thing. I'd much rather break plastic ears than destroy the hot shoe mount on either of my Pentax bodies. If the Promaster module doesn't give me results on the 9550 then I'll more than likely purchase the 5750DX.

Humbly Hopes this Helps,

Chuck

Noise Reduction and Raw Processing
Posted By Chuck Lee
Replies: 10
Views: 2,394
Kemal,

Good question. I own a K100 and K10 and have left noise reduction on. I searched both manuals again to find out more about this setting. The only place it is refered to for usage is when the camera is in Bulb mode and a long exposure is expected. Whether or not it has anything to do with jpg or raw I do not know but I'm almost positive that it has nothing to do with a per say "noise reduction" post proccessing algorithm that some P&S and other DSLRs use during in-camera raw to jpg conversion. The only reference I can find to it elsewhere is in a list of features and it states "Noise reduction function activates for long exposures". Since you would only use bulb mode for exposures longer than 30 sec all evidence causes one to conclude that the custom menu supplied noise reduction toggle is meaningless when shooting any shutter speeds slower than that. The default setting is "ON" I don't think the engineers at Pentax would enable a default function of the camera if it resulted in degraded image quality. I have tried 30 sec long night time exposures with it On and with it Off. I shoot in RAW and I haven't seen any difference.
As far as high ISO noise. I know there is no NR on those!! It's pretty &^@$% obvious! I have Neat Image and have worked myself to a frazzle playing with high ISO images. I quit a long time ago. If I can't shoot 800 or lower on the K10 or 1600 or lower on the K100 I use a flash. The resuts are so much better.

Lens Suggestion for Wedding/Portraits?

synnyster,

I would not get hung up on the low light fast glass lense for the wedding. Carpents is right. The 50 A 1.4 or the 1.7 is the best for your budget. However, you may not have enough time to practice out all the kinks that go along with fast manual focus/VERY short depth of field at wide aperatures. My wife and I did our first wedding two weekends ago. I've got the SMC A 1.7, and Super Taks 50 f1.4, 105 f2.8, 135 f3.5, and a Suntar 135 f2.8 that take fabulous pictures in low light. "But", my wife shot with the K10 and Tamron 28-75 f2.8 with Sigma EF 500 DG super while I canvased with my K100 with the 18-55 kit and Tamron 70-300 on a tripod during the ceremony (flashless). I use an old Quantarray 9550 (dual light strobe unit) in manual that gives me superb results. Why you ask? We were shooting a wedding and did not have the time or the patience to worry about the perfect focus or about the high ISO noise or about the right lighting. Too many things can go wrong in those situations to ruin the shoot. Our friends as well as clients aren't concerned with the artistic side of dof and natural light. They want the photo's to remember the event. I humbly suggest that the two lenses you own are very sufficient and agree that the flash is the best way to spend your money. A decent tripod for aroungd 70 bucks would help with the 50-200 in low light. Promaster (Promaster) has come out with a resonably price 2 light strobe that looks just like my Quantarray 9550. If I'd known about it 3 months ago I wouldn't have bought the DG Super.
The beauty af a dual light strobe is that in the reception hall or any room with a light ceiling less than 20ft high you can bounce the head while still getting the forward flash from the secondary.
Great results....... here's two:

This first one is with the Tamron 70-300 from the back row. Slick tripod. My wife fired the flash on her K10 just as my 2 sec timer fired. That resulted in a very cool lighting effect on his face. The others were just as good less highlight.



This second one is at the reception with the dual flash Quantarray. K100 wt 18-55. Not an award winner, but a good example of the dual flash lighting.



As always, I humbly hope this helps.

I just read a thread over at dpreview dated 08/22/07 that a guy just ordered one. Apparently, this lens is so new that Sigma hasn't updated their site listing yet. Looks like Sigma beat Tamron to market with a K mount. I searched the web and came up empty as far as finding one available anywhere. I guess marq it could still be on your list of possibilities.

Harald,

Yes "center"........I'm always somewhat embarrased to ask stupid questions but I know, just like that comment that we all sometimes overlook the trees for the forrest. Good Luck on getting your problem fixed.
