Hi, I know I'm going to get shouted and, and I remember seeing this asked before, but I haven't been able to come up with the right words to search with to find it again.
How do you see what the current post count is for this month, also is the answer to this question in a sticky somewhere that I failed to spot.
thanks

When my daughter took her K5 on a school geography trip to Iceland last year, the teacher wanted a group photo so chose the camera with the biggest lens, they had fun fitting everyone in :) (and yes she was the only Pentax there... but also the only one who managed to take a photo from inside a waterfall)

Ahh... I've just checked (on a k5).. its normal, in low light even with correct exposure it flashes away.. I never really noticed before.
I think it its way of saying you should use flash, even if you don't want to, and I can't find any way of disabling it..
oh well..

flashing usually means that it cant expose correctly based on your settings... but you say the exposure is correct.. so odd...

Thanks for all the comments, very informative. so in future, keep it below f11 and keep the shutter speed up.

btw it was hand held on a bridge (southern half of Hungerford bridge to be precise)

apart from when its too bright are there any other times that it is useful to go above f11 ?

thanks again
Steve

Hi,
Just wondering whats being done wrong here... is at a focusing issue, or does it need a faster shutter speed, or something else?

although if using usb that shouldn't be an issue as the computer doesn't see it as an SD card.
are the photo's visible on the camera?
also when you plug in the usb cable, connect to computer and switch on camera does the top lcd say PC
the likely problem is a computer driver issue... the computer see's the connection as a 'PENTAX DSC_K5 USB Device'
not sure though if that is really just a standard usb disc driver or something that is installed from pentax..

Tried TAV For The First Time...

And just to re-iterate what has already been said.
I was initially confused about the difference between TaV and Hyper Program as both seemed to allow you to set shutter and aperture. But in Hyper if you set the shutter and then try to set the aperture the shutter will forget what you set and go to auto, and if you then try to set the shutter again the aperture will go to auto.
So hyper is Av or Tv where as TaV is both Av and Tv... sort of

I had the same problem, I used recharable NiMh's and they all just stopped working, after trying everything I got myself some eneloop's and since then, as long as I use the eneloop's, its been fine...

24 or 36 Mpx sensor

This as far as I can tell is wrong and I thing, please correct me if I've made some wrong assumptions.

18mp is a resolution of about 5194x3464 and 36mp is about 7350x4900

50%crop of 7350x4900 is 3675x2450 or about 9MP.

The thing to bare in mind is that if you want to print something at double the size at the same dpi, you need 4x as many pixels.
so ignoring all other things going from 16mp to 24mp will only allow you to increase the image by about 20%

In which case the actual white balance is done when its converted to jpeg as the actual RAW data is just what the sensor sees, although I think it also stores information about the camera's white balance settings when it took the photo
