Great design! We would just have to trace the cameras, or convert them to B&W.

I have a K-X ( I love it) and I have an offer to get a K2000

Personally I wouldn't bother with the K2000 if you have a K-x, unless you're getting a really good deal on it. While both cameras are dated at this point, the K-x's sensor is quite a bit better than the one in the K2000, and the latter also lacks live view, if that's important to you.

Using the technique above, if you install the latest version of PDCU, it should be able to open files from all older cameras.

FA J lenses function just like DA lenses in terms of the aperture lever, so you should look for the same behavior/characteristics.

DNG will always be compatible with more programs, so I recommend sticking to that format



Very valid point. The PDCU software does support K-1 II files, but Pentax doesn't develop native OS support for these files, which is annoying.

Advice on vintage lens purchase

Sometimes these things smoothen out over time. I would try the lens out for a day, and if it doesn't get better I'd just return it. As others have pointed out, $40 isn't unusually low, so you should be able to find another one in better shape.

I would say polished enough that people would vote for it, and that it could be fully completed within a few days of the announcement of the winners. Simpler designs are highly preferred as they not only look better when printed, but also enable lower-priced shirts.

Which design do you have in mind? I can likely reactivate it given Teespring's recent changes.

The K-1 is currently available for $1599 from Ritz Camera (via Amazon). Seems to match the Arlington Camera deal thats also currently live.

I wonder if the big stores will reflect this price anytime soon.

Yes- the date on the warranty purchase receipt must be within 30 days of the date of the camera/lens recepit, or in the case of pre/back-orders, the day the order was shipped (retain proof of this just to be safe).

Yup, I believe TAv started with the K10D and then made its way onto future models, either by being baked into M mode (whenever auto ISO is on), or via a dedicated mode.

Error Extra line breaks being inserted in replies
Posted By Adam
Replies: 3
Views: 97
This is an issue that I still haven't been able to find a proper solution for. It seems the editor has many ways of inserting line breaks, and things are breaking (no pun intended) since a recent update to FF/Edge. Chrome, which doesn't support the full visual editor, is mostly unaffected.

In the mean time, editing a post to remove the line breaks can be used as a temporary workaround.

I wonder what the motivation/benefit of this is. Seems that in a rapidly changing industry, free publicity would be worth it, the earlier the better. Especially for a relatively small-scale, niche product.

There are good deals year-round. In the camera industry, many coincide with major trade shows, so we tend to get a lot of deals in the fall and spring, with not too many in the summer. Of course, there are exception to the norm- that's why we offer price alerts through the deal finder. In the future we'll be looking to integrate Australian dealers, but right now it's US only:

Sounds like the AF motor in your camera might be broken, or perhaps the AF drive shaft. Can you hear the motor spinning, or do you see any evidence of physical damage to the drive shaft? I've heard of the spring breaking and the shaft therefore failing to extend.

There is a custom function (20 or 21 as far as I recall) that essentially locks down the 4-way controller. Or you can reverse the logic and use your user modes for back button focusing, while keeping all defaults in auto mode.

The K-1 II AF has gotten software enhancements, so it's an improvement over the K-1's. The accelerator, however, is just used for processing images after capture.

Refer to our in-depth reviews (or the AF first impressions of the K-1 II) for more insight.
