K-3ii Overheating & Freezing Up

Last June I was taking a lot of photos using my K-3ii at World War 2 weekend in Reading, PA. It was in the upper 80s and I was out on the tarmac - where the air was probable much hotter. Anyway, that afternoon I was taking some photos of a young woman posing for me beside a B-27 - and the camera froze while processing the images. The camera body also felt quite hot to the touch. I found some shade out of the sun, but the camera wouldn't even turn off. After several minutes waiting, I shut it down by removing the battery. But I lost the images on the card.

It's been working okay since them, as has the card. I wonder if others have had similar experiences?

I've had this problem, but seem to have resolved it. I'm using a K-3ii with battery grip. I changed the option for battery selection to "automatic" - prior to that I had it set to use the grip battery first. I don't know why, but it hasn't happened to me since,

There's an app called Google Skymap? I cannot find it - at least not for iPhone.

A quick reply - be wary of the used K-50. It may have exposure problems which they're prone to. I just spent $175 getting mine (hopefully) fixed. I'm planning to use that camera and my K-3ii. I'm curious about which lenses, too.

I too am making plans. I have a K-3ii and K-50, plan to use both. I'm wondering about filters...much varied information is to be found. I'm in Pennsylvania, plan to head SE based on current cloud cover forecasts. Right now my target is SE Tennessee around the Smokies, but that may change. No hotel reservations, either I'll be sleeping in my car or finding a campsite. It should be fun!

I thought some might like to see what was done to (hopefully) fix the exposure issues with my K-50. I've attached a copy of the repair ticket.

At any rate, hopefully it'll now be a good backup for my new K-3ii.

Has Pentax acknowledged or done anything about this K-50 problem yet? I've since purchased a K-3ii, but it'd sure be nice to have the K-50 fully functional once again.

Memory Cards for K-3ii

I'm just purchased a K-3ii and now it's time for acquiring the peripherals.. I cannot find anything in the specs, but is there a maximum speed (MB/s) or size (GB) for this camera - and what memory cards would you recommend? I want to purchase what I really need. Are any brands superior or inferior to others? I've generally been using SanDisk.

I've just ordered a Pentax K-3ii from B&H, with the battery/grip, USB card and flash included. :) It should arrive tomorrow. Hopefully I've made a wise choice - my buying the K-50 lemon sure was NOT a good choice.:mad:

K-30/K-50 Aperture Control Problem/Black Photo Repair - How I did it.

Has Pentax yet to acknowledge that there is a problem with the K-50? It seems that it wasn't on the market very long. I had to return one under warranty because of aperature problems and they replaced it with a new camera; my second one developed aperature problems this past spring. I'm very disappointed and don't know what to do - I understand they charge $200+ just to look at the cameras for repair. This is really disheartening. I loved my K-50 at first, now cannot use the TTL features one owns an SLR for, I can only take photos by using the LCD panel - through the lens is extremely dark no matter what I do. :(
