I choose picture number 8. Because it requires solid work and knowledge. It is much more than accident - there is nothing accidental in it - it is a finished work. I would vote for No. 15 if there was a slightly better treatment. In other photos there is too much case, although they can undoubtedly please. Best wishes.

There is nothing to worry about opinions and "tests" of portals - just this lens (DFA * 50 / 1.4) is excellent and worth the price. To the extent that I almost didn't buy it, even though I don't need the 50s for the K-1 at all (even I have FA50 / 1.4 which I don't use, and I had 50 / 1.7 and 2 pieces of DA50 / 1, 8). Waiting for DFA * 85 / 1.4 and I hope it will be as "bad" as the DFA50 ...

OVF or EVF (whatever that means ;) ) is the smallest problem - it is more important that the AF works properly. As for the viewfinder - it should be optical-electronic just like in Fujifilm X-1 Pro.

It's just a matter of the name of the attachment - you can call it M and all the "disasters" you describe disappear. It is important that you can still close the old lenses. With P / K adapter rings, the lenses would sharpen normally.

And why a different fastening right away? K is good. Even without an adapter it would be possible to attach a lens and it would sharpen endlessly ... And with the ring it would work normally.

I think Pentax could release two mirrorless cameras - one FF and the other APSC. Both with a K-mount but with a smaller focusing distance and an intermediate ring allowing the existing lenses to be restored to full functionality until the development / production or purchase of new glasses. The corps would be smaller than, for example, K-01 ...
It would be an excellent backup device.
It would be an excellent second camera.

Indeed, the number of posts has increased tremendously - probably because everyone is curious about this new APSC "flagship".

It's great that thanks to this application it will be possible to take pictures of k-1 and k-70 with the help of a laptop ... Will it be possible also with an Android cell? I ask because Image Sync has a problem with showing a large photo on a mobile phone - only the thumbnails are visible.

Let them do only for their lamps and / or the receiver - then I will gladly pay more for FGZ 540 - and so I have no reason to overpay and use Metz.

Shanny SN600FGZ P-TTL HSS Flash for $120?
Posted By Andrzej Makuch
Replies: 132

For me, it was interesting to have a flash option with built-in radio control for other lamps and receivers with HSS and P-TTL, because I often use the Round Flash Ring lamp attached to the foot of the camera. This allows for the use of Acon or Cactus, but Phottix Odin not.
For obvious reasons, I also prefer to avoid fixing the flash on a cactus or other type of transmitter, because such a construction ceases to be stable - it is easy to damage any of the elements. Therefore, in the outdoors I am often forced to use either only the HSS lamp on the camera (which strongly limits the range of this lamp) or even giving up HSS and using manual control over the radio or P-TTL triggered by the flash of the Master lamp.
In addition, 600Ws and more powerful lamps are needed to use HSS - and there are no such lamps in the Pentax system. And that's what I meant by writing about skipping professionals by the lack of a system radio solution.

Neither Shanny (who must be with a cactus) nor RF60X for Pentax is a solution - it would be an AF 540 FGZ solution with a built-in transmitter and radio receiver and a separate Pentax TX / RX. It is a pity that the company does not notice users with flash ...
This solution is good for amateurs, unfortunately cuts the Pro segment ...

It certainly will not damage - the contacts of the camera are designed for continuous installation and removal of the flash.

It is possible that you do not turn off the energy saving and the lamp turns off before you finish setting.

I understand that when working only with Cactus RF60X lamps and a Pentax camera, it is best to set Pentax on the controller output. However, my question concerns the situation when you need to use Nikon or Canon lamps at the same time - will the Cactus RF60X work the same if the Cactus V6 II is set to Canon or Nikon? Has anyone worked with the lamps of these systems (or Godox, Genesis, Quadralite for Canon / Nikon) and can he say with which Pentax + Cactus system works better in P-TTL and HSS?
