You should not see ads outside of the homepage as a site supporter. If you do, please email screenshots to contactpf at this domain.

As for disruptive ads, Google has a product called auto ads that sometimes needs a bit of tuning. So, any screenshots/examples there would also be much appreciated. We otherwise haven't changed anything in a while.

So it's an ist DS or DL then?

Make sure the 4gb card is SD, not SDHC, as both exist.

Stated another way: if your teleconverter doesn't have aperture contacts, then the lens must have an aperture ring for the aperture to be controllable :)

If image sync works the same way on the K-3 III as other Pentax bodies, then one trick is to minimize the number of files on the card to improve performance (i.e. by deleting old photos or moving them to sd2). That will hopefully speed up both the thumbnail generation and the transfers.

Best way to attach them would be to add them to a zip file, which can contain any file type.

I believe it is fully compatible (not sure about the OS, but this should be disabled anyway if you plan to use the camera's SR system). We don't have many of the older Sigma lenses in the compatibility checker, which is why you didn't see it there.

2022 Pentax Forums T-shirt Contest
Posted By Adam
Replies: 4
Views: 581
It's that time again- our annual T-shirt contest is back for a 2022 edition!

For inspiration, you may view prior designs on our Teespring store.

Theme: incorporate the PF logo (download here) in a camera, lens, and/or photography-themed T-shirt. An emphasis on Pentax's shift toward "workshop-style" manufacturing would be a bonus. Let your imagination rule!

We can print shirts in multiple colors. You may therefore submit light and dark variations of your design if you wish to support both types of material.

Deadline: July 31st 2022, by the end of the day your time

To enter: post each submission in a reply to this thread, as an attachment (be prepared to e-mail a high-res version if you're a winner)

You can choose to enter as many designs as you'd like.

Prizes: Each winner will each receive two free shirts shipped to their door, plus a Site Supporter forum account upgrade

Requirements and restrictions:

Do:
  • New: you may submit a front+back design this year, but please ensure that the front side can be used standalone

  • Only the central area on the front/back of the shirt will be printable. We can't print on the sides, above the neckline, or on the sleeves

  • Your design must include the Pentax Forums logo. You may alter the colors or make minor changes / additions

  • You may use specific Pentax product names and product logos (i.e. K-1, K-3, etc), and traces of official product photos, or any product photo found on PF's homepage

Don't:
  • Important! Your design can't have more than 10 colors (preferably 4 colors or fewer), so avoid the use of photos

  • Photos can NOT be printed - you must either vectorize the image or reduce the number colors

  • You may not use any other photo or work subject to copyright, without permission

  • You may not use the official Pentax logo font (type out Pentax instead)


Once we're closed to submissions, we'll have members vote to select the winning designs. We plan to pick three winners, but may opt for more if there are many exceptional designs.

I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with, and I'm sure many other forum members are, too. Good luck!

This year, we will continue T-shirt production through Teespring. With two different fulfillment locations, simple storefronts, and prints every 3 days, shipping is cheaper and faster than it's ever been before.

To get you started, here are four top designs from the past 5 contests:

It looks like there was a stray null byte in the post that was being submitted. Edit that out and the post should go through. I'm not sure how it would have gotten there, but likely related to copy-and-pasting from another application or some other form of corruption.

It would probably be a good idea for them to use the official SDK. That said, it hasn't been updated for the K-3 III yet...
