K3 iii menu question: viewing histogram and focus peaking

The histogram and focus peaking are also mutually exclusive on the K-3 III, at least with the current firmware. My guess is that they did it sinply to remove clutter.

The majority of search traffic is for technical / photography / gear questions - and much less for things like photo sharing.

What we're mainly seeing is the impact on the number of casual and professional Pentax users due to the focused product offering and longer release cycle. At the same time, we've also seen an increase in engagement from enthusiast Pentax users. This somewhat makes up for the drop in new posting activity, from a quality over quantity perspective, if you will.

The lens is supposed to come well-padded in a durable case, so not likely that it would break. Was the external box damaged?

Zoom Lens for K-1ii
Posted By Adam

The 16-50mm is a crop lens, so you'd essentially be losing out on that wide-angle coverage when using it on the K-1. Starting at 22mm, it fully covers the corners but only in 1:1 crop mode. Before that it's only usable in APS-C crop mode.

Given that the 24-70mm is essentially the full frame version of the 16-50mm, I'd pick the former if you use your K-1 for wide-angle shooting, but that makes a lot of assumptions. What are your main use cases for each camera?

Flu card question

We have an overview of the flucard's capabilities here;
Pentax FluCard O-FC1 Review - Introduction | PentaxForums.com Reviews

In a nutshell, it gives you a browser UI to take pictures and copy them to your device. There is an (undocumented but easily reverse engineered) API that could, for instance, allow you to transfer arbitrary files.

So, for the FTP use case, you would need something to connect to the card's network, then download the files and transfer them over another network. It's not something you'd get out of the box with this particular card.

USB tethering software such as this might be better suited, as then you could just have whatever PC copy the file over directly:

We have a separate (structured) DB that has all the info for these- hence the consistency :)




Unfortunately this is not possible, but it is also made redundant for newer lenses due to the above. We can parse out the focal lengths if the data from the old DB gets moved to the new one.



I have added this field so it should now show up for that category.

It's indeed interesting. Lensbaby was supposed to be discontinuing Pentax lenses, so the fact that the are showing up as "new" on the official store might suggest that they will continue. Either that or there was just too much leftover stock :D

You can go with either or, but independent shops don't always have access to parts. Here's a list: Pentax Repair Facilities (Wordwide listing) - PentaxForums.com

With first generation SDM lenses, it's a good idea to use them regularly. If they sit on the shelf for extended periods between use, they're more likely to fail.
