Pentax Flucard Errors when Deleting Files
Posted By bpcarlson

I have a Pentax FluCard in my K-3 and when deleting files I get an error message about not being able to delete files. Ordinarily I'd "format" the card, but because it's a FluCard I'm not sure I can do that. Does anyone have any suggestions? I rarely use the FluCard, but don't want to mess it up.

I have the GR ii and am getting used to it. Are the accessories listed must haves with the camera? I'm enjoying it as is, though don't mind adding to it. I have a K-1 and K-3 for other work.

GR ii Remote Connection Problems

I'm replying to my own message...

With the new upgrade to my Samsung Galaxy S8, enabling use of both WiFi and Mobile Date, it interfered with the GR Remote App-Cache application. With Mobile Date disabled on the phone, the remote application worked. So disabling mobile data is a way to get it to work.

Pentax-DA* 55mm 1:1.4 Focusing Problem K-1 & K-3

I have a Pentax-DA* 55mm 1:1.4 that is giving the flashing focus light and won't focus to infinity for taking landscapes. I was picking me lens out to take on vacation and was giving them a trial run. This lens does for medium distances. I tried it both on the K-1 and the K-3. I updated the K-1 firmware to 1.41, and also reset all the settings just to make sure. Any ideas?

I appreciate the replies. Typically my camera hangs off my neck, and I'm also packing a camera backpack bag. I need to manage the weight and also secure the camera.

I have a Pentax K-1 (and K-3) with battery grips. They can be quite heavy when walking around for hours, so I'm looking for a camera holster to support the camera better than having it around my neck, which has caused me some pain, literally (and visits to the chiropractor). I'd like to find something that I cause use when traveling and maybe connect another lens to instead of carrying my bag everywhere too such as on hikes. I'm traveling to Europe in June and want to get something now to get used to it. Any suggestions??

K-1 Card Say's "Not Formated" after downloading photos in a card reader

I've found that when I put the card in "read only" mode with the protect switch on the card I don't have the problem anymore of the camera asking me to format the card.

K-1 Card Say's "Not Formated" after downloading photos in a card reader

I appreciate all the replies and suggestions.

It's a 64GB Lexar SDXC 633x. It showed format needed in both slots. I did download the format program, and it didn't make a difference.

I'm using Windows 10.

What I should perhaps try are the cards from my K-3, or if the K-1 says it needs formatting, to put it in the K-3 and see if I get the same message.

Battery Grip. D-BG6

Is anyone noticing excessive battery drain using the battery grip? While using the main camera battery with the grip secondary, the main one shows full power while the grip has depleted some. The other day I had the grip as primary and it rapidly diminished with just about 200 shots. And with the battery set for the main camera, I had the grip power turned off.

It's working now...maybe the contacts weren't true the first time? I had to make sure the aperture ring was in A, and auto focus and everything's working. Before though there was nothing. Thanks for your replies though, otherwise I would haven't retried and felt I only had an expensive lens from my K-3.

It works perfectly on my K-3. When I mount it on the K-1 and turn on the camera, the image is completely out of focus. There is no auto focus action happening either when i touch the shutter button. I tried changing the settings on the lens from manual to auto to see if that would make and difference.

Every time I take the memory card of the 1st card slot and load photos into my computer, then put the card back in, the card cannot be read and I get the message requiring me to format the card. This never happened in my old K-x or my K-3. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm using a Kingston USB-3 card reader.

New beep sound when shutter trips

My K3 just started making a weird "whoop" sound each time the shutter released, starting on 9/27/14. I do have AA activated, but the sound started long after that. I sent a note to Pentax this morning about that. Sounds weird and has me a bit worried.

I have the FluCard Pro O-FC1 I bought from Adorama on March 20th. It was responding pretty slowly, but I thought that's how it was supposed to work? I was able to use it using my Chrome browser on some Android devices I have, a Samsung Galaxy S4, Motorola Xoom, and a HTC Thunderbolt.

The response time was really slow...but not having much experience with the card I didn't know if that is what was expected. Then when I went to take the card out of the camera and put it in my computer to offload the photos, I noticed the beeping in my computer. On my Windows 8 PC it tolerated the card, but it didn't go well in the Windows 7 computer, and after the beeping stopped (about 7 seconds) the computer dismounted the card. I was taking candid photos of a robin pecking at a mirrored image of himself, but because of the response time it was hard to really get things focused on the bird and even tell when the photo was being saved to the card. It's a nice feature, but the response time is very poor.

Then what i did was take the card to the Windows 8 PC and within 7 seconds, copied a few photos at a time. After the beeping stopped, the card was no longer accessible to copy photos. I was able to get all the photos copied, but only within a few seconds each time, and after that I'd have to remove the card and put it back in the computer and start the process over with another few photos.

I read the PDF manual for the card and it doesn't say anything really about transferring photos. I'd say that the card works for taking photos, but it's difficult to get the photos off the card to the computer, especially the RAW images.

Any ideas?

With my Pentax K-3 (and noticed too with my K-x) that when shooting photos of bright red objects, close up, the reds are more magenta than red, even when I tried playing with the wb. Any suggestions? The objects I'm photographing are flowers and red berries.

I just started using the K3 to record movies but really had a difficult time keeping the subject in focus...are there preferred settings? I was recording an indoor event with the subject from about six feet away to 15 feet, and using the auto mode. Will the K3 automatically refocus or will one have to continually push the focus button which is noisy on playback?

Greetings friends.

I'm an old time Pentax user, with my first Pentax being a MX from 1977. I still have it plus a couple ME Supers. I went the Pentax DSLR route because of my several *M* lens. About 3 years ago I bought my first DSLR, a K-x, and then just upgraded to the K-3. I'm enjoying it, it being the most sophisticated camera I've owned, obviously. I do want to get better using as many of the functions as possible, exploring new things with it.
