Thanks for the heads up on this deal. I thought I was too late, but it's still on. Haven't been shooting much during the pandemic, but maybe this will get me motivated to get out and get some shots.

Why can't my KP photograph a rainbow?

On your Iphone shots, look at how dark the grass is. On the KP, see how bright the grass is? that makes the sky brighter and the rainbow less visible. If you are shooting in AV mode, turn the front dial to the left to adjust your exposure compensation down about 3 stops. In the viewfinder you'll see where it has a # that changes as you turn that wheel - keep turning until you get the shot you want. MAKE SURE you turn this back to zero before you move on otherwise all your shots thereafter will be 3 stops under exposed!!

Get in the habit of reviewing your shots after you take them - if they are too bright, adjust exposure down. If they are too dark, adjust exposure up. You may want to change your exposure mode to center weighted or spot mode too, but first things first. Get to understand exposure and how (and when) to adjust it.

Not sure if this is a good program for us Pentaxians or not but thought it might be worth posting in case it is:

Capture One Capture One Pro 20 (Download) 88200033 B&H Photo

Looks to be download only for a permanent license.

Here's some verbiage that Capture One provides:

Capture One Pro 20 is an advanced and comprehensive photo workflow tool suiting a variety of applications from photo editing to tethering to asset management and organization needs. Version 20 of this esteemed software sees updates to core editing tools, including a Basic Color Editor, for a more streamlined and faster editing workflow. A dedicated High Dynamic Range function helps to achieve improved shadow and highlight response while enhanced Noise Reduction affords cleaner, clearer results for working with imagery shot at high ISO values. Faster editing is possible with an updated scrollable interface along with a "switch to next" function for quicker culling and sorting of files. This version also now supports DNG files and has updated keyboard shortcuts, the ability to copy both layers and masks between files, and an even cleaner interface for a more enjoyable working experience.

Or their "landscape" C-PL for $ 375

NiSi S5 Kit 150mm Filter Holder with Enhanced Landscape NC CPL for Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 - NiSi Optics USA

It's a pretty cool system where the filter holder can rotate while the C-PL is fixed inside the holder.

Worked for me too - uploaded a couple pics as well. Ran into a problem because of the 15mb limitation though. And the PPG accepts GR pictures too though it doesn't differentiate between the first, second and third gens. Also the order of the lenses is almost random - wish they sorted it by focal length (or at least the widest of that lens) to make it faster to find. But nice to see it's up and going again!

CP+ interview question suggestions

With the shrinking market for cameras in general, interchangeable lens cameras, and DSLR's specifically, where does Pentax see opportunities to differentiate themselves?
How did the conversion of K1's to K1ii go? Is this level of modularity something that Pentax will design their cameras for in the future?
Does Pentax believe that sensor technology is changing as fast as it has recently and if so, in what areas will these changes have the biggest impact on Pentax camera design?
Is the near monopoly of sensor production by Sony damaging to niche/smaller camera companies like Pentax?

I'm interested too - I saw a forum member mention they had pre ordered it. I had it in my cart for a while, but took it out. I'll probably end up getting it though - I think it will benefit enough to make the trade.

k70 product shot
Posted By mike.hiran

I was in my garage taking photos of lenses that I was selling and I had set the K70 on a tool box while I uploaded the pics. I came back and thought the combination of red and black items complimented the color on the HD DA 35mm Limited Macro so I thought I'd take that image with the K1. Kind of wish I took the time to dust off the camera and lens though. Even if the pic was taken at iso1600, there's still a ton of detail to make out that I didn't do that... but this was a spur of the moment thing to play around with what could be called a lifestyle shot or maybe a product shot.

Comments and criticism always welcome - feedback is a good thing.

I recently acquired a m20 f4 - it's pretty amazing how small that thing is - it reminds me a lot of the 15 on apsc. I've had a little bit of playing around with it, but not too much landscape wise. That is one of the great things about our Limited lenses - how easy they are to travel with!

These great lenses still for sale. When you're wanting something small compared to the alternatives as well as much less expensive, these should be near the top of your list!
