Metering Settings

Hey all, just recently downloaded the K-70 eBook and have been reading through it. One area of photography that I haven't really dove into yet is metering. I see a few setting options and recommendations in the eBook and am looking for thoughts / opinions on it.

1. It recommends turning "Link AE and AF Point" to on so that the metering is always leaning towards the focus point.
2. It recommends turning "AE-L with AF Locked" on so that auto exposure is locked every time auto focus is locked.


Both of those are set to off by default. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this and whether or not this is the consensus for these settings. Lastly, what does everyone typically use for meter operating time? It's set at 10 seconds by default.

Good to know, had no idea! Does this also happen with 12 second self timer or just 2 second?

Also why is the IR remote better than cable for astrophotography? Thank you for all your responses. You've been very helpful. I feel like I have much to learn and experiment with. I haven't even tried using pixel shift or HDR yet and I'm still trying to get better at taking star photos (I did pickup the astrotracer).

So you can use mirror lock up and a two second self timer at the same time? Is this a hidden setting somewhere? I know how to turn them on individually but I dont see an option to use them in conjunction with each other.



Which setting turns it off, mirror lock?




So the K70 noise reduction setting only applys when shooting in JPEG?

Hello all! Purchased a K70 last November and so far I'm loving it. It's my first DSLR and I'm still learning all the time. I have a few questions however.

1. I don't own a remote shutter release. I've just been using the image sync app on my phone which has been great however it looks like it only works with single drive which means no mirror lock up. If I were to purchase a cable shutter release would I be able to unlock this ability. What benefits would I get with the shutter accessory vs the app?

2. With mirror lock on the K70, is there a way to use this drive mode in conjunction with a self timed? If so that would solve my problem in my first question but I cant figure it out on the K70. It seems like it's one or the other (mirror lock or timer).

3. Do you guys keep the shake reduction turned on with your K70s? I have heard that it's better to turn off sometimes if your shooting astrophotography or using a tripod. Wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this. Same goes for noise reduction. I noticed this is on by default. What are the best times to use these features or should I leave them on by default?

If anyone has any other tips or settings they recommend tweaking feel free to chime in, thanks!
