Hello Everyone,

I am having alot of trouble getting my K-5 to send a flash signal through the PC remote, without using the built in flash, or external flash mounted on the hotshoe at the same time. I would like to be able to not have to have frontal lighting. I just got a new lighting kit, and the issue seems to be in the K-5, not the flash kit. does anyone know what I am doing incorrectly?

Thank you,

Lol Yes I shoot alot of dance now, and yes mainly this is for dance, both on the stage and in the studio. I have a DBG-4 already, and some extra batteries. I normally shoot for fun but people are now asking me to shoot them and are willing to pay. I haven't used any of the above 35mm lenses. I also use an MZ-S on occasion, that is why I threw the 35FA in there. I have some remote flash strobes + backgrounds etc. @Dsims, how close is fairly close? I may need a wider angle if it is within 16ft. and are you really sure I need to upgrade the body?... I am all for that but my wife may have a word about that "you already have a good camera".....the FA*24mm, is that a good lens for this sort action portraits? I haven't used a variety of lenses yet so I don't know what the best ones for this application are, and scrolling through the user reviews most people are shooting thier puppy, some bugs in the backyard, or some old building/farms...... so I can't really tell which are good for this.

31mm would that be alright without buying a new body? s

Hello Everyone, I am getting into some Action portraits, and I would like to know which of these lenses I should go for:

DA 35mm 2.4
DA 35mm 2.8 MACRO
FA 31mm 1.8 Limited
FA 35mm 2.0
Sigma 35mm 1.4

I need the "normal" focal length because I need to get the full body in the shot, and most of the time the subjects will be in the air. I will also be shooting with high shutter speeds. what would you guys go for?

Thank you for your help!

I will do that I guess before sending it out, should I put it in a clear plastic bag before? so it doesn't collect too much dust?

Thank you guys, The lens works wonders the only issue I am having with the Fungi is when I am shooting in areas with lots of light, the light fungi causes a fuzzy image when there is lots of light, in lower light settings the images are super sharp though

Hello, I just bought a FA 50mm f2.8 MACRO lens from a thrift store. it cost almost nothing, however it has a little bit of fungus on the inside of the back element, and on the back of the second to back element. I was wondering if anyone knew how to clean it out, and would be willing to share the knowledge :)

hey, I was reading lately about fog proof binoculars, And foggy lenses are one thing that drives me nuts. Taking your camera out of a cold place, going indoors and then having everything fog up. does anyone know of any lenses or new lenses being developed that incorporate a fog proof lens? probably in primes because that would be similar technology to the binoculars that they are making?

ok, I like the filter Idea, that makes sense, I still like to get the sun in the photo itself so the filters seem like a good way to stop down without using the aperture
