IF Pentax can implement a really great wifi software, this would work! I use contrast-detect with manual lenses and the flippy screen is awesome not just for low level shots and those taken from above your head, but also for astro, where the camera may be pointed up at a pretty good inclination for long periods of time. Unfortunately, Pentax's previous software has been hideous and FAR behind the other manufacturers.

Give me a new video showing the K-New with a flippy screen (I love the screen on my K1) OR a video showing the amazing new, and vastly improved, smartphone app. And how about wifi tethering to PC?!?

You accomplished excellent exposure on the skull too but the thing that really caught my eye was the candle flame! Very cool. :)

Excellent! Could you say a bit more about the lighting and settings used?

Screwing around with settings on my K1 in prep for a different shot (that I never got) and just took a quick test of what was right before me.

Well, it looked clean to MY eyes anyway, before I took the shot. :D

Nice shots! I have an "air plant" like that, the forth one down, but I can't seem to keep it green for anything! Any tips on keeping one healthy?:confused:

I haven't posted anything on this forum for awhile. Messed around outside today, now that the weather is improving.

PENTAX K-1 Discontinued

The MK2's accelerator chip seemed to deal with high ISO better (12800 and above) but I don't like any more "in camera" processing than absolutely necessary, especially when shooting raw. Ultimately it was the price difference between the two, used, when I made the switch. Stepping back "down" to the mark 1 freed up more money to throw towards the 150-450 that I bought at roughly the same time.

Both are excellent bodies but if I had to do it again? I'd take a lightly used mk1 over a new mk2, assuming a significant savings could be found.

Had the Mk2 and was happy to replace it with the Mk1, after learning more about the accelerator chip! Should still be plenty of Mk1 around, used at a discount, for anyone that wants a second (or their first?)
