Wonderful shot, Terry. :cool:

This reminds much of the Rockies in Western Canada.

Happy Canada Day to you too C.A.M. ! :)

I fondly remember the fantastic celebrations during July 1st during my 20-odd years living there!
Grandiose fireworks :cool: and great crowds.

Now, this thread isn't too busy, is it? Reason: people are too busy trying to get to the evening celebration(s) and that goes for the entire country too. Of course, some will regret having indulged .... hangover day upon a rude awakening, just in time to get back to work! :p

Cheers!
Have a great day!

Seems like it ... the camera has been "performing" normally since I made sure to have the grip power OFF and the batteries fully charged.
Then gain, what will happen when I turned this grip ON ? (I haven't had the need to have it powered up lately).

A good option I think.
As long as you also keep a backup somewhere ... more USB sticks?

Someone will have to ask them to change their magazine title to "Engine Trend" ! :p

Great album.
In my opinion, one of the best recordings (technically).

---------- Post added 05-14-19 at 05:46 PM ----------

Still trying to get those crazy chords in order, especially on the 12 string guitar (capo on the 7th fret): Hotel California,
and, of course, the old (acoustic) intro on STH (Stairway to Heaven).
Getting there; then again, I had neglected my guitars for quite some time ...

I also revisited one band in particular, and one of my faves: Dave Matthews Band.

Cheers! :cool:

Update:
After a couple of very short sessions with firing the K3 + DA*300/4, all has been working correctly.
I make sure that the batteries are fully charged and that the grip is OFF, unless I need to have it ON.
We shall see when I put the combo through its paces in more difficult situations requiring rapid bursts in "less than ideal" lighting conditions.

using AF 1.4x TC for auto-focus manual lenses?
Posted By jpzk
Replies: 20

I have both the HD 1.4X TC and the 1.7X.
To be honest, I have been using the 1.7X TC much more often and I find that the IQ is as good or even better than the 1.4X.
The lens I have been using with this TC is the DA*300/4 and although it is "already" an AF lens, I switch it to manual and use the TC as the AF.
All in all, I prefer the 1.7X vs. the 1.4X.
So I assume that it would be a good choice for your type of lens.

How/where do you disable that ?

Found it. Thanks for the advice.
How about all of the other junk showing under the "Privacy" section in Win10 ? Do we really need all that stuff?

I do use Win10 at work on a laptop and it does what it's supposed to do (Office stuff) but I prefer the old Win7 on my home PC.
I suppose it is going to happen soon enough: "accepting" Win10.

---------- Post added 05-02-19 at 09:38 AM ----------



Thanks for that. :)
I will certainly use this when the time comes (for the home PC when Win10 will have taken over).
I might give it a go on the office laptop which already has Win10.

Yeah ... well, Ford is stopping production of all "non-truck" vehicles (partly true, seemingly).
If you bought an F150, you're in business!
I'd suggest an old Fiesta :lol:
I will have to edit my initial post though ... I've just Google'd "Non-Pentax Cameras" and "they" don't exist! ;)

So, you have Win10 and then installed this software to get rid of unwanted "bits" in the O/S ?
What did you removed (examples) from Win10?
Did it cause any misbehaviour?

So, why will I not buy another camera brand:

1. I can't afford to switch system - too much invested already
2. I am too lazy to learn how to use another system

How about you ?
