Hi all,

I was out today with my K5 + 35mm Ltd Macro shooting the first few shots with this combination. It's winter and just after raining with low cloud cover. A very dark day!!

I just realised I could shoot macro hand-held in the depths of winter on a dull day with my K5. This is something I could not do with my K10D and get acceptable results using high iso under the light conditions.



Thanks!

Johnny

Hi Vylen,

I took out extended warranty, lost/stolen and accidental damage insurance at time of purchase. It put a 10% premium on the total purchase and was for a 3 year term.

Hi Gmcotton,

My autofocus died on my K10D in November. It kept making an electronic whizzing noise but not able to focus.

Luckily I had it covered by insurance as it was outside it's warranty. Sent it off and it came back working in perfect order! I was fortunate as I had a second body because it took 6 weeks!!

Hi All,

I am thinking of upgrading to a K20D from a K10D. I like the transparency look I get with my K10D see Singing Robin on Flickr - Photo Sharing!. Will I still get this look from a K20D?

K20D Black & White Raw files?

Hi All,

Having read all the details this morning my head is starting to spin. I thought I read on one of the sites that the K20D gives you the option to shoot Black & White Raw files but I can't find this site with all the information flying around on the forums. Is this true and is it unique to the K20D?

K200D v K20D jpeg sizes?

Is this a serious question or a wind up?

"using 6mp pictures says you can fit 335 images on the card (about teh same as my Ds). The K20D can fit only 176 6mp pictures! Similarly for the 10mp images, K20 can only fit half as many. Does this mean thaty jpegs from the K20D are only half as compressed, so "better" quality as they are twice the file size?"

Hi Guys,

Just getting into Ubuntu myself. I bought a preloaded Dell and have just started to investigate Raw converters and Gimp. I would be grateful for any helpful documentation or reference websites.

Urgent problem: Inconsistency in noise level with K10D

Hi Canon_S2,

I've attached a link to some of my photos also using the K10D and the Sigma 135-400mm.

Ive yet to experience the same noise levels that you have. Below is the link. The last 3 images, the seal, gull and shag were taken with the Sigma 135-400mm. I certainly don't use spot metering as a rule.

I like the close crop of the face. Unfortunately for me there's not enough of the eyes showing but when I converted the image to B&W and adjusted the levels I really liked it for the patterns and texture of the skin.
