well, instead sawing and cutting and all that horrible stuff you want to do to that beautiful lens, you could just unscrew the tripod mount, no? I took my helios to local lens repairs, because I did not have such a tiny screwdriver and they did it for me in 2 minutes.

Problem with Image Sync app on Apple

I found out finally. it was not the iPhone issue, I had composition adjustment enabled on the camera. That's why it didn't show any image. I turned it off and now it works perfectly. It could be though mentioned in the app to disable it.

Thank you honey bo bo, but I am not using chrome. I had it installed once, but then I deleted it...
is there any specific setting on iPhone, that I am missing?

Those of you who have already K1, have you tried the wifi connection with Image Sync app on an Apple product? Is it working as advertised?
Because I tried on 3 different iPads/iPhone and on each I have the same bug. I do not see the image I am taking in the app. Black screen. I can move around the focus point, but I don't know what I am focusing on. I can change all the settings through the app, I see the photo after it has been taken, but I don't see what I'm photographing.
I have the camera set on single frame drive and tried LV on/off on the camera with the same result.
Any more ideas? Does it behave the same on Android?
Thanks

I thought I had the newer one, but no :) Apparently this lens has been refreshed in 2013 and it is not that fat at the base. mine has still the tripod socket. tomorrow I am going to check if I cannot remove it somehow.
so the new version should mount without any problem. there you go, you can spend your 300 without regrets 😜

oh, I didn't know there was even newer version than that. So I have the older version, you're right. I stopped checking about lenses because I was spending too much money on LBA :) better not to know:))
Let me see then the photos you'll take with that combo!

43 I haven't tried yet, I expect it to perform well. It did great on film. Yes, the nightmare macro hunty lens of doom :) exactly my feelings. Glad you say it is great on K1. Have to try it too. It is a great lens, very sharp with nice bokeh.
And congrats to K1! 😄

I have the newer version 2. When I tried to mount it on K 1 I thought the K1 won't take the ring, then I tried to mount other lenses with rings without any problem. And there I noticed Helios 40-2 is just too fat at the bottom :) it misses only like half of mm to be mouted.
I don't know about sigma, I don't own that lens. Hopefully you'll find some solution that would work for you.

😃 Sorry, well... not that sorry. 15-30 is a beautiful lens, veeeeery sharp wide open (for the moment I checked only the center of the image, but OMG!!!) but a bit bigger than I imagined, though it enters in my bag without any problem. love it already.
I haven't tried all my lenses yet, but what is disappointing I cannot mount my Helios 40, the 85/1.5 portrait lens. The base of the lens is too large and collides with the camera body under the "what-would-be-oncamera-flash". Pity, will have put that lens on diet 😅...

k3 low light af accuracy

For me the best combination for fast focus and accuracy is K5IIs + 77 (for portraits). Spot on in low light, in back light....prefer that to K3. But when I shoot with 16-50, I find it to do better with K3.

K3 and low light AF
Posted By ksm

My story.. I have all 3 - K5, K5IIs and K3 and hands down, my favourite one is K5IIs. I shoot portraits most of the time, kids that won't sit still for a sec, in a backlight... I have more keepers with K5IIs paired with 77 that with any other camera. Shooting mostly at 2,0 or 2,2. K5 is just not there, hunts and won't lock fast enough, and K3 is too fast to focus but I never seem to get the focus right on the eye. The K5IIs is just right on the money. Even indoors in lower light levels still prefer the K5IIs than K3. But that can be just me...
