Thanks guys!

Mostly the shots are indoors on a stage, something like a beauty pageant.
At a distance as I usually at back or midway down the hall and on a chair to get over everyone's heads.

I usually use a Tamron LD DI 70-300mm.
Actually my favorite lens.

weight could be an issue, lighter will be better as I have weak arms and prolonged holding can be problematic.

Took bunch of pef files yesturday and my niece in law want a copy as they of her daughter.

The camera took RAW as I forgot to change to jpeg for her.

I have a mac and do not have the pentax browser or laboratory.

seems to be no download on pentax site only and updater.

How do I convert batch as there lots to do.
will take too long do each one in the camera.

thanks guys

I still have my trusty Pentax K-m camera and has never let me down.
Only my own lack of knowledge has...

only 8901 shutter counts.

Well been using camera more as my grand niece is a carnival queen.

So looking to upgrade.

Been "out the game" so long I not sure what's out there.
But with my low budget looking along lines of:

Ks1
Ks2
K50

Would like as much input as possible please.

I worked at 1/30 inside!

I was in Tv mode!

Worked outside in several Tv settings!

Think that it MUST have been poor batteries :o

and think I do not get the "lightening bolt" in view finder because the camera cannot tell when the 283 is charged? maybe yes?

but the flash is love the new energizer ultimates!

I do not think my camera has seen any damage as the wireless flash trigger (Ishoot brand) works fine as does my friends flash gun in my camera.

The "2000" has only been on my K-m once as has no control over flash output and sees little use!
the 283 is the main flash I use, and works well inside, and in low light.

the bolt in the view finder is the one that tells me a flash is required (or so the cam thinks) it will show if i have no flash on camera, and flashes.
if i put pop up flash up it flashes and fires the flash, if in bright light, I DO NOT get the bolt symbol...

works inside ONLY IF in the view finder I get the flashing lightning strike symbol!

but will try a much faster shutter speed and see what happens!

I would have thought that if flash on shoe it over ride the pop up anyway?
so will fire as if it was the pop up?

but they ARE old flashes!
my maybe they are not good enough?

They are triggered from the hot shoe and on occation from the wireless kit!
works flawless with both!

the output of the flash is regulated by the opical sensor on the front of the flash unit!
which is variable with a dial on the 283!
and is usually set to its LOWEST output!
