Thanks DAZ. You are correct the WB and metering mode was different. I had changed them hoping to get more consistent results but it didn't work. In the previous post Dave said that it appeared as if the muted filter was applied. It WAS. When I changed it... the exposure was dead on. Thanks for your interest in my post.

Now, I can't wait to see what other cool things I can do with the K-5!

JohnA - I mean that I get different results from different cameras. Everything is the same except the bodies. It could be white balance, but I have it set to AUTO on both.
kenyee - The 1st photo is from the K-5. The second one is from the K-20D. These are JPEG straight from the camera. The little fellow is actually just that toasty brown color. The thing that kills me is
that I upgraded and I STILL keep reaching for the old camera because I am more happy with the results. I have not been able to capitalize on the extra speed and other things because I am unhappy with the color.
I just need to know what to do!

I have a K-20D and a K-5. When I shoot with the K-5 the exposure is NOT close at all to what it is on my K-20D.
I don't know what to do. The pictures from the K-5 are way underexposed compared to the K-20 D.
What can I do? Both were taken at ISO 100 1/125 and 4.5 f-stop
The lighting was exactly the same on both.

I did shoot jpeg, with different lenses, same light. Auto WB. I was just surprised that the K-5 was darker. I will have to figure out the grey card thing. I would like more consistent results.

and what I need to adjust on my K-5 to get a better picture? Both were taken under the same lighting conditions. Why is the exposure better on the 20D one?

I have been using a Sigma EX 70-200 2.8 for several years to shoot wrestling. Today, I kept getting the F-- in the exposure window. I don't know why. It didn't happen on every shot, but it happened way too much! I took the lens off of my K20D and tried it on my K100 body and had the same problem. Does any one have a suggestion as to what the problem could be--- or where I could get some quick service.

Thanks for you response Wheatfield!

When I set my K20 to M--- it didn't work the way it did with my K100 or the *istDL. That was why I was asking if I was doing something wrong.

I was hoping for a cure to my problem.

Ben 0r anyone else who knows---,

I have been shooting with a *istDl and K100 D until recently. I have been using a basic light set up that I purchased from Steve Kaiser Photography. I bought the kind of hot shoe trigger that you plug the cord into. I got sick and tired of the cord falling out at the most imperfedt time.
So, I purchased the wireless trigger that mounts to the hot shoe. It worked great. I would set the camera on M and adjust the setting on the lights to my liking.

Then, after joining this forum I decided to upgrade to the K20. I am still having trouble understanding all of the settings. But, I put the trigger on my camera and set the Mode to X. My results have been good, but it sets the ISO to 100 and the F-Stop at 2.8. I have to post process a little.

Is there a better way? What am I doing wrong. Am I doing anything that could damage my new camera. I have several sessions this week. Please give me some feedback.

Egordon,

I guess that I forgot to tell you that I am real blonde. I knew that the DOF depends on the F-Stop. Gosh, I guess I really sounded stipid. I was trying out my lens inside without flash when if first arrived. I was so excited that I wasn't even paying attention to the F-Stop. You know like a kid with a new toy!

On that shot -- I did use direct flash.. all I had with me was the on camera flash.... I left my bag in the car.

Thanks for bringing me back down to earth.

I didn't get to try it out very much.... but, I am pleased with the clarity and detail. I used the new camera and the new lens (Pentax 50). Will this lens work well to take shots of groups at weddings or will the boken be too severe??
