Hehe, I agree completely.
Everyone should do what suits their needs but without being afraid to try other stuff.

The best way to go about it is compare both methods in real life and choose one that suits the user most.

just bear in mind that when shooting raw you can do pretty much all post processing on your computer afterwards.
i see almost no real benefits from in camera PP.

Sometimes, only sometimes, I use it to check a frame in b&w but that's about it.

For some reason I do like underexposed photos =) personal preference.
Works fine for me, as often it's easier to pull the details out from the shadows.

i played with levels a bit on one or two of them, but i think you'll like the jpegs straight out of the camera.
the one with the plastic mugs on the rack was straight from camera for example.

all done with kit lenses (18-55, 50-200)

Ahh... you learn something new every day =) thank you

So, for the sake of example... 50mm gives you FOV of a 75mm lens on a FF camera but the focal length is still 50?

just remember that k-r actually is 1.5 crop.

So, the rule of thumb that your shutter speed should be 1/(focal_length) is a bit different as your focal length as marked on the lens is really 1.5 times that. Your 300mm is really 450mm, thus your shutter speed should be 1/450 or quicker.

edit: some people have got hands made out of stone, so it does vary. i think the more you will shoot, the more you'll see what shutter speed you're comfortable with to get sharp pics. for me it's usually 1/2 the shutter speed everyone else needs as i'm constantly high on coffee (handshakkkkkes).

Another thing to consider is the movement of the subject. The quicker they move, the quicker the shutter.

Post some full size pics. Try doing some test landscape shots at f16 or so, using a tripod, focused manually to infinity.

Hi,

Been through... a few systems.

Looks like it's Pentax now but I might just hang around for a while.
Started off with K-r and 18-55 and 50-200 kit and while not the sharpest tool in the shed, it works.

of course, my LBA is kicking in and quite some stuff on order already...:o

Anywho, hello all you pentaxians!

with regards to crop.

a typo there. k-r actually has 1.5 crop. to simplify it, it means that you have to multiply the focal length of any lens by 1.5 to get the 35mm equivalent. So, your 50mm would be an equivalent of 75mm on 35mm camera.

strobes are great, but as in pm, reading a bit first would be great.

here's a good link:
Strobist: Lighting 101

and some examples of use of them outside:

look at these photos:
The stunning pictures of sleeping insects covered in early morning dew | Mail Online

and that's a bridge camera without tripod and using in-built flash.

so yeah, if you can't shoot good pictures, don't blame it on equipment. just practise more.

Hello,

Would be great if you could post a few problematic photos.

Also, a few checks to do:
1. Different lenses
2. Different metering modes
3. Different modes
4. How does it behave with different shutter speeds?
5. Have you tried factory reset?

Right now it could be shutter, light metering, sensor...

While I've been browsing this forum for quite a few months now as a pentaxian, this thread actually made me register and throw in my 2p for whatever it's worth.

I think we sometimes get lost in technology race and forget what we used shoot with. Give me a K-r 8 years ago and I would be one ecstatic camera owner. A lot of photographers have shown that equipment doesn't matter as much as what you do with it. But enough of the generalisations.

K-r for weddings? Absolutely, why not. Your sony will be great as back up there.
To repeat a couple of people up there. A fast manual lens would do you nicely. 50mm with 1.6 crop gives you a nice portrait lens there.
Grab a slave strobe with umbrella or softbox on ebay and use it for posed photos.

You don't need a spectacular budget. I'm a firm believer of buying second hand and will stick to it while selling my ols equipment.

One major advice is: practice, practice, practice.
I would truly recommend going to the extremes of asking friends and neighbours about weddings and then politely inviting yourself as a free photographer (working alongside the professional one). As long as you do it in a discreet way most people will be happy to have additional source of photos (maybe apart from the pro guy).
It will also give you a chance to experience wedding environment and see what setting work for you best.

God knows, maybe you'll go to a shoot and discover some weird unknown technique that will allow you to shoot gerat photos with kit lens and built in flash. You never know.

I'll leave you with a link to wedding shoot done with k-r:
