What section of the forum is the info on all the Pentax point and shoots located?

I unfortunately do not have any knowledge or insight on Pentax film compacts to add, but I do think it would be nice if the article you're thinking of included some info on some of the stand out models that people liked/were considered "better". That's really why I was looking for some information on them initially, is I was hoping to make a recommendation for someone who was asking for suggestions on a good point-and-shoot film camera with autofocus/zoom. I thought it would be cool to give them a Pentax recommendation. Whatever you guys decide to do, I'll look forward to it. Thanks!

Yup, that's what I'm looking for. I should have specified film point and shoots. Those are specifically what I was searching up. Oh well, it's all good. Thanks for the info you guys!

Sorry if this is a noob question but I'm trying to gather some info on all the Pentax point and shoot cameras throughout the years, but I can't find any info listed for them on this forum like I can for the film SLR's and stuff. Is that information simply not here. Do we only have specs and stuff for the SLR's and stuff? If that's not listed here, does anyone know of a resource they can point me to?


Again, sorry if I just overlooked it, and thanks for any help.

Thanks! I do like this framing better, and I appreciate the guidance. I do tend to boost my colors too much. It's an ongoing struggle to tread the line between realistic and "ooh pretty colors", lol. I also need to calibrate my monitor so that's a thing. I appreciate your input.

Wow, that's awesome! Isn't it addictive? Just when you think you've found a pattern it throws you a curveball and something doesn't "mesh" well. I spent hours, literally.

Pro tip: the site has membership levels that increase based on participation. When you start, your images can only be output/processed in a lower resolution/quality. To get around this I take the low res output and put it into this website that uses similar AI, neural network tech to enlarge images by 2x (literally, 2x is in the name) with little detail loss. The reality is that to avoid detail loss they apply selectable levels of noise reduction. As I'm sure you know, noise reduction smooths images at the sacrifice of detail.

Well, losing detail doesn't really matter in this case, because the DeepDream output is already unrealistic and realistic details aren't a concern. So you can enlarge your output immediately without having to spend hours to days upgrading your membership on the site via participation. The enlarger site is https://waifu2x.booru.pics/ I don't know what the anime character theme is for, but the site works and it's SFW and all that jazz.

I usually put the output image from DeepDream through the waifu2x enlarger as many times as possible to yield a large photo...just because really. There is a size limit oif around 3400x3400 I think...something like that. Still better than the small output from DeepDream. Anyway, glad you like it and have fun!

I stumbled across Google's DeepDream AI image processor the other day, and I've been addicted to seeing how a lot of my favorite shots look when I run them through it. It uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dream-like hallucinogenic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images. It's a simple upload and click a button process, so it kinda feels like cheating, but the results are stunning. It's kind of random though, so it's hard to tell what you're gonna get until you try it. This is a shot I ran through it that came out looking like a painting. I really dig it. I included the original shot for reference.

Hey thanks! What you see is actually already cropped. Just wanting some thoughts on whether the crop was good. I can post the original if you'd like to see it with no crop. Thanks again!

Thanks! Yea I was surprised how much the sky in the background ended up looking like a studio backdrop in the black and white conversion. Really cool effect.

Wow, this is fantastic! It almost looks like a wave due to the length/angle of the shades on the right side of frame. Really well done.

Thank you! Do you think it's too dark? Sometimes I look at it and think it's fine, other times I look and it seems kinda dark, but when I lighten it up any in post it just loses some of it's appeal... I wonder why?

I really like these type Macro shots, but what always bugs me is that you can't get the whole plant in frame if you wanna get that close up. Does anyone know if there's a way to take multiple macro shots and stitch them together, sort of like a panorama, to create one large file of the whole plant in frame that still has amazing magnification? Anyway, here's the shot...

I know this isn't a technically accurate exposure, but there's something about this shot I still like. It reminds me of a scene from a dimly lit science fiction film or something. What do you guys think?

Hey, thanks for the input! Didn't expect to still be getting comments on this image. Yea I think the brightness around the plant is a combination of post processing and just how the image looked. I added some vignette in post, so that accounts for the darkened edges, and I think the lens I used has a little natural vignette already because the edges were darker in the unaltered photo. Also, maybe the darkness of the plant makes the bright blue background seem brighter right around the plant due to the contrast? I dunno, but that makes sense to me.

Your advice on the crop is something I'll take into consideration. I actually wanted to do that, but I didn't want to cut off the stem on the right, and the top of the photo has no more headroom due to how I framed it. What you see in this crop is the top of the frame. I also wanted to keep it a 16x9 ration for viewing, but if I print this I'm thinking of changing that or going freeform on a canvas or matting it.

Hey thanks! I'm surprised I'm still seeing comments on this old shot. Just because you piqued my curiosity, here's how the shot looks both vertical, and in B&W, lol:

Oh, my bad I must have misinterpreted what you said. Yes, then we agree. I wish someone would make a newer DSLR that has the looks and styling/feel of an old Film SLR. Maybe even an exact replica (or as close as they can get and still fit everything) with all modern features and a digital sensor. I know there's not a huge market, so it'll probably never happen though.
