Hello,

I suppose the word sensor is not exactly correct. My photos are getting so many specks on them it is taking the fun out of photograph and a simple shot of air is not doing the trick. I would like to know of an inexpensive, but safe, way of cleaning the surface. I have both the K10 and K20. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

I don't want to question your experience, but something other than a problem with Seagate itself seems to be going on here. I have several, and not one problem.

Hi gang,

I just received my Lightroom 3 software. I bought it not because I understood my trial period experience, but because I had fellow photographers tell me how great it is, and because I got it through college discount, which was less than 1/3 of retail cost.

Now the learning begins. My questions to you all are these:

Are there some great instructional tools out there? (You know, for the impatient learner)

Besides the presets, are there plug-ins for this program? (For the cheapskate)

Are there other things I need to know moving forward?

I realize these are wide open questions, and I apologize. I am simply looking for help to work toward fully appreciating what I purchased.

Thanks all!!

Tom

Bump to top because I find this lens to be tempting. Unfortunately, I don't have an adapter, which prevents me from purchasing.

Best of luck.

If I know the color temperature of the lighting I am using, and I set my camera to that value, will I get true colors of my subject?

Hi there,

Has anyone here downloaded Lightroom 3 trial? I am about to but I can't seem to find out how long the trial lasts ahead of time.

Any info appreciated.

Don't know if anyone said this, or if it even exists, but I found Magic Lantern Guide to very helpful to me with my K20. It pretty much takes your owners manual and explains it in plain English with some tips here and there..

My 50-135 occasionally is slow to focus after sitting in the case. This has been the case since it was new out of the box. I have often wondered what would happen if it doesn't recover. I would hope I could rely on the screw drive, but I don't know.

I will soon begin working for the first time shooting RAW and converting with Pentax Photo Lab.

Using this software, do you use a checklist of steps for each photo you process? Certain steps before others?

Thanks

I honestly can't as I am not knowledgeable enough. All I know is if I take two pictures, one at f2.8 and one at f11, spots will show up much more at f11. Have no idea why????

Nope, I have to stick with my first observation. Mine are on the sensor, and they do vary depending on aperture setting.
