When I say "Look at the Viewfinder, not thru it", it's because many beginners look directly at their subject while looking thru the viewfinder. What they should be doing is using the viewfinder as a frame for the photo they are about to take. Look in the corners - are there distractions there? Look behind your subject. Is the background pleasing? Don't concentrate on the looking directly at your subject, but rather think about the final image- it's showing in the viewfinder right now!

Help disassemble and fix a stuck 50-200 WR, video inside

Not sure I can help except to encourage you to keep at it 'cause I feel your pain. This very afternoon I spent 6 hours on my 16-45 lens which basically had the same problem. I got it apart and it took numerous attempts at getting it back together correctly. In the end, I dont know exactly what I did to fix it OR get it back together correctly, However, its working now.. not perfectly as the zoom has 1 spot where it sticks and takes a bit of force to continue. But it's working!

Try this site for some help:

There some info at the bottom of the images that may help.


Best of Luck.

Actually, for the Windows Phone, only IE is available, so the Flu Card doesn't work. For Windows PC, laptops, and tablets, Chrome is available.

K3 Wired Remote Problem?
Posted By petez

I've been using my old pentax wired remote on my K3 all weekend. Other than needing to wake the camera up by pressing the button and then pressing the button again to take a shot, it's working just fine. Sounds like the cable is not at fault since it works on the K5.

Wish I could shed some light on the situation...

Good Luck.

Item for Sale
Pentax D-BG5 Battery Grip

Asking Price
180.00 USD

Item Location
Corvallis, Oregon (United States)

Item Description
Purchased as part of a K-3 kit from the PentaxWeb Store last month. I do not need the grip, so I'm selling it. It is brand new - I've not even opened the box.

The image is from the Pentax Web Store (PentaxWebstore.com:BG-5 Battery Grip BG-5 Battery Grip). Here's the description from the Pentax Web store:
The BG-5, designed exclusively for the K-3, is the perfect match for this professional level DSLR, and optionally accepts six AA-sized batteries as well as the standard lithium-ion rechargeable battery. It features and extra set of shutter-release, AE-lock, AF, ISO, exposure-compensation and green buttons, as well as a preview lever and a dual electronic dials to facilitate vertical-position shooting. It also features the same dustproof, weather-resistant construction as the K-3 body.

Depending on how many frames you need to scan, you may be better off sending them out for a drum scan rather than investing the time/$ for a scanner.

I've tried several places but Calypso Imaging, Inc. was the best and least expensive by far.

You can send them 5 frames as a trial for ~$10 (see the standard scan test)
