Is my k200d dead ?

I needed to use my old k200d this part week-end (forgot my k5 at some friend's place!).

I put in some fresh Energizer batteries, it worked as expected.

Sometimes after the batteries went dead and I needed to continue shooting, so i dropped in some cheap AA batteries from a convenience store.

The camera did not start but the batteries indicator showed full, but there was nothing else displayed, the motor for the lens was working (40mm ltd), the shutter seemed to be working. but nothing else.

After a while, the camera started to really over-heat. I removed the batteries.
Later on, I tried again with Energizer batteries with the same bad results.

Is it a sign that the camera is dead ?
That would sucks, because it is a good backup camera.

Thanks.

(disclaimer, I've not used it in a couple of years)

You could use the dreadfully slow and awkward to use "Sigma Photo Pro" software from Sigma.

It gives out nice results, especially when using the "fill light" slider. (which works differently than the Lightroom equivalent)

Use it and save as TIFF to re-import in Lightroom for further processing if you want to.

I'd check with your insurers to see if you can get replacements instead of sending them for repair.

Visiting Rome

When in rome I only used the da 18-35 II and the 35mm ltd.

I wished I had something wider.

I decided to leave the longer lens (50-135) at home because it is too heavy for intensive sight-seing.

(see what kind of result I had with those two lenses : Rome 2012 - a set on Flickr)

Went to a Bel Canto show in La Tuque (QC, Canada) where Soprano Stéphanie Lavoie and her brother Jean Sébastien Lavoie performed.

I was just sitting back and only shot 2, 3 dozen of pictures with limited adjustments tweeking (not wanting to disturb fellow show goers).

All with K5+da* 50-135.

I have an older i5 desktop PC and an i5 mac book air.

Both are working very well, both are using Lightroom (version 4.X).

My suggestion is to keep using the same OS (windows or mac) unless there is really something that force you to change.

Some pictures taken at a wedding I shot a couple of weeks ago (and that will be the last one ever).

I just not good enough with people to do that kind of thing; way harder than I imagined.

I got mixed up between cameras with and without flash, wrong lens on wrong camera, ...

I had a lot more fun shooting at the party at the end than at the wedding itself.

(used my old K200D and a K5)

I waiting for positive feedback on focus speed accuracy and low light focus accuracy.

Also waiting for feedback on the "pseudo" AA filter (sensor shake).

All the other features are additional candies if the 2 above are working as expected.

I went to Rome last September with only the DA18-55 and the DA 35mm LTD. ( I think I also had the 40mm ltd, but I don't remember using it that much)

For the city, that was enough.

There was a few times when I wanted something longer, but for walking around, being lighter was the key to a better "tourist" experience.

Went to the Biodome in Montreal (Biodôme | Espace pour la vie) this afternoon...

All taken with the K5 and the DA* 50-135, most of them are cropped, 135mm is not long enough.

So much for using the Surface Pro for photography

The difference between the iPad and Surface is in the Operating System (OS).

The OS for the iPad is created and "optimized" for the hardware, while the OS for Surface is a plain Windows 8; their goal was to be able to let users use any Windows software on the tablet.

Microsoft should have created an OS based on Windows 8 , but streamlined and optimized for Surface.

I have not really taken a lot of pictures the last couple of weeks, lack of inspiration; or maybe just as a reaction of taking too many pictures on vacation...

But with winter coming, I feel a bit renewed.

Don't forget, the rating are valid only within the camera classes.

In this case, the K5 and 5D are in 2 different camera classes.
