Try a store like Ikea. Many of the led lights are already 12vdc, just don't use the transformer. The light fixtures are already made and they don't cost much.

I do not do professional photography but have done a low budget wedding for friends. My suggestions are: make sure you set realistic expectations, get one good portrait of the couple and confidently move to the locations necessary to get good photos (act like a professional instead of a shy guest with a camera).

The delay is not normal. Since you don't know what settings have previously been applied, you can reset the camera settings. Menu: wrench 3 tab: reset.

I recently replaced the green aperture control block in a K50 with a white aperture control block purchased on eBay. So far it works well. It turned out to be easy to replace.

I downloaded your preset. It adds a very welcome warmth and vibrancy to my K5 images. Pale skin tones are also much improved. I'm sure I will use it frequently. Well done!

I have a K5 and have the same difficulties taking pictures of my kids indoors so consider a body newer than a K5 for improve auto focus ability. For my pictures I usually want more depth of field so a faster lens isn't my solution. I have found a flash to be my best solution and usually use bounce flash.

How do you shoot the moon?

I set sunny white balance to retain some color. Take pictures of a crescent moon to get an interesting moon edge showing the craters against a dark background.

18-135mm WR won't focus to infinity?

My 18-135 lens developed the same problem. I was unable to focus to infinity at the wide end. When I lightly pushed the barrel in, the lens would achieve infinity focus. I took the lens apart and found one of the barrel extension screws had come loose. I tried to tighten it but it was stripped so I glued it in place with JB Weld. It has been working well for a few months since the repair.
