IMGP8321 by Antonio Tarquinio, on Flickr

Focal Length 97.5mm, Manual Exposure Mode, Used Built-In Flash and CWA Metering.

This was a very harsh sunlit day so I used a Hoya CPL Filter which is why had to use a flash fill.

I believe it turned out alright. Hope you fine folks enjoy this one.

Greatly appreciated Dewey. I like using the k-7. It is a bit heavier than the k-50, however I like the IQ it consistently renders. :)

Hope this finds you well.

Problem with Auto Focus Not Working, And My Camera Took The Shot Anyway.

jddwoods, I am unfortunately in a position where after five back operations, it is imperative that I use a tripod. When I set the self-timer it automatically cancels the SR. I am grateful for the suggestions regarding shutter speed, ISO and aperture settings. I will surely begin practicing in a little bit. Also, I will give a full report on the results and even post a few images here. The external flash that I used is powerful and I had to use a higher number for an aperture setting. Will get back to you soon.

Regards,

Tony

On the Pentax k-50 body I used the Takumar F 70~200mm and on the Pentax k-7 I used the Takumar F 70~210mm 1:4~5.6. Actually, I am glad that you mentioned the use of a tripod. The truth is, the auto focus did work better when I handheld the camera. I thought about that, but thought there could not be a connection. Is there? If so, in all the years I have used these lenses, I have never experienced these instances. Please advise as to the tripod connection.

Thnx, Tony

Well, I was indoors in a Garden Center in Sherwood, Oregon. There are air doors on all sides, however there was practically no wind. I would have noticed if there was a problem with the wind and would have waited until it calmed down. In fact, I had to do that a couple of times. Are you thinking that perhaps I need a steadier tripod?

Thanks again for your assistance.

Hi Tom. I never use LiveView. Setting the self-timer automatically cancels the Shake Reduction Feature. :)

Thanks,

pschlute, the lens was used with the aperture ring on the "A" setting. I will have to learn how to check the AF points.

This past Monday I went out shooting with my Pentax K-50 body and Takumar F 70~200mm, 1:4~5.6 Lens. For the first hour everything went very well. I went to another area to continue shooting and with the same set up (on a tripod,always) I suddenly noticed that when using auto focus and with the steady auto focus light on steady, the image was not in focus. I attempted to fire off a shot, and the shutter activated with the image out of focus. I checked the presets and confirmed that the shutter was set to only activate when the image was in focus. Also, on the rear LCD Panel, the image looked to be razor sharp. Well, I thought perhaps my aging eyes were once again deceiving me, however when I uploaded the images to my computer, they were out of focus. There were quite a few of these and trust me, they were not salvageable.


Okay, again that was Monday. Yesterday being Thursday, I decided to use my K-7 with the Takumar F 70~210mm 1:4~5.6 Lens. Not the same lens as was used on Monday.

After about an hour or so, the same situation occurred and I was flabbergasted at having to look at many out of focus images. By the way I should mention that I always use the self-timer and it is always set to 12s, to give it ample time to settle down prior to activation.

Any assistance with this issue will be greatly appreciated. :)

Shutter Count Issue With Pentax K-50.
Posted By Tonytee

Views: 399
You are correct sir. I did shoot the same image all the way through. I am aware that the battery has no relevance to the file sizes, I merely wished to be informative and also to be certain to have enough juice to finish the experiment. On that note, this past Wednesday I went out and shot (with a fully charged OEM battery) 110 images and the battery went down to 75% capacity. A different topic I know and I will post the bizarre happenings on Wednesday, when I can get my thoughts organized. An awful day to be sure.

Thanks very much for the info.

Tony

I feel as though I am in tune with what you are saying. There is one area I am having difficulty in comprehending and that is: Reality. I mean for every shutter activation, the total count was reduced by a factor of one, and that happened all the way to the end. I know this because I was counting along with the display counter. So if I agree with the total of zero, how can the camera come up with 260 actuations more than the actual? I understand what you stated, however I do not understand how a file can replicate itself based on ISO settings or any preset settings. You see, I am using Photo Editor 10 to upload images into my computer. This app., came with Windows 10 and for the first three years it functioned flawlessly. Within the last 8 months it has been a real nightmare to work with and I have seen many formal complaints forwarded to the manufacturer. The only recourse I have is to conduct the experiment again, upload the photos and take an actual count to confirm that the number is accurate in Photo Editor 10.

Here is the main reason I am suspect of both Photo Editor 10 and the K-50. This past Wednesday I went out and shot (with a fully charged OEM battery) 110 shots and the power level indicator went down to approximately 75%. When I conducted this experiment yesterday after 1,109 shots, the power level indicator remained at full power level.

How can this be? Perhaps the simplest thing to do is to have the K-50 checked out and see what the results are.

Thanks again, Tony

PS I will post what happened to me on Wednesday at first chance. In a nutshell, it was a cross between: The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. :(
