very small difference. forget about megapixels -unless one's trying to print it large size- and start shooting. have a nice capturing.

aaaww what a shame.. i really want to unfriend him :P .. anyway , point taken:D.
after some brief research the problem occurs when i use third party battery, regardless memory card type.. 1 out of 3 knockoff battery may cause this problem (i have 3 of them and only 1 constantly cause dis )

question regarding cheap battery of ebay

i purchased 3 knockoff batteries for kr,
2 of them can take 450+ shots
the last one can only take 300 shots.

so if youre an RPG gamer, you may want to ignore your STR, AGI and ENDR stat.. focus only on your LUCK, youll get a better knockoff battery . Goodluck .

Kit lenses v super-zooms

well sir ive tried 18 200 siggy and 18 250tammy .. ive found slight image quality reduction (sharpness and contrast) when ure using 18 200. But then result may vary since there are luck factor in obtaining good copy and bad copy lens


I found both lens ( 18-200 and 18-250 ) good enough to meet the need of a 1600x1200pixel display or 8inx10in prints (i dont do pixel peep though) . Well you may add contrast and sharpness in postprocessing program if necessary.

Then the question is reverted back to you :)
- Do you use your camera for large prints? or web display only? :)

me? i prefer 18-55 kit over those two superzoom lenses, pentax color is .. different..

how many shots can be taken with KR battery full charge ?

dearest friends... i got this lovely FF camera on January...
i'm a wedding photographer and most of the time i use this little gem as my main camera.

in Indonesia the temperature range from 18 to 29 degree in celcius and the wedding ceremony usually took 12 hours from the make up session till the closing session..

First 3 months, the camera battery can take around 600 shots. 12 hours session, auto turn off every 1 minute.
( LCD turned off at all, centre af focus point,Manual mode, offshoe flashes )
last 3 weeks, the battery can only capture around 400 shots. 12 hours session, auto turn off every 1 minute.
(same setting)


things went uglier when youre using video mode.
luckily, there are plenty of third party batteries for Kr here, so now i have 4 batteries to deal with this litle gem's thirst.

i dont use AA adapter since its not available in my country.....

when you print it at 4x6 inch.. none would notice the differences between 100 200 or 640 .. so, turn off the expansion, enable highlight correction youll get better result

i try to answer question number 2 :
i'm currently using 4 yongnuo 460-II flashes , 1 nikon sb800 and 1 fgz360..
i can get yongnuo for 30$ each .. it has 33 GN in real life and 2 sec recycle time.. the power is adjustable up to 1/64 power.

for the trigger i use yongnuo rf 602 , it can work well from 60 metres away..
dont bother bout the ttl..

well not that lucky actually..

because people in my country tend to see everything from its exterior. then i decide to duct tape all the camera from the very beginning i use it.. when i try to sell it i open the duct tape and voila the exterior is free from scratches .. so the buyer willing to buy it at 'reasonable' price heheheh

pardon my abysmal english

I'm keeping my KR .. no reason to throw it away or use my 5D instead..
ff or bf is only a problem if you dont know what the eff is goin on with your picture. and since i know exactly whats goin on i simply switch the af location.
( usually i focus to the model's feet instead of face )
