645Z mirror problems

My 645Z froze last night and needed the battery to be removed as it did not respond to any of the controls. Let's hope it's a one off. 1st time I've had an issue with it.

Best regards

What could be 'different' about Pentax FF?

The Sony a99 comes to mind: "Image Stabilization : SteadyShot INSIDE™ in-body image stabilization. Compensation effect: Equivalent to approx. 2.5 to 4.5 steps in shutter speeds *Varies according to shooting conditions and lens used. Type: For still images: Image Sensor-Shift mechanism"

K3 Crazy Mirror Sickness (Mirror Flapping Lockup) - Report Yours Here!

I was doing a shoot on Sunday using a K3 SE, so it had original Pentax batteries. Lens was a Sigma 100-300mm EX. Av mode at 100 ISO. It burst into the mirror flap mode and although I immediately switched of at the power switch, like others have stated, it did not stop the rattle. I then quickly started to undo the grip in an effort to remove the battery in the body. It stopped flapping and upon re-attaching the grip and switching on, continued to work fine for the rest of the day.

No idea what the cause was. It was the second event I've had with the K3. The first was just a total freeze up that needed the grip and camera battery removed.

Love the camera but not happy with issues like this.

Come on Ricoh, let's have this issue resolved please.

Camera serial No. 2573653

Hello, has anyone used a KatzEye screen with the OptiBrite option and have you used the std version?

Is the OptiBrite option worthwhile?

Best regards

So where does the lens magnification come into play? A 450mm lens as I understand it presents an image 9x mag where the 300mm would be 6x mag.

Surely this would make the subject image size different (on sensor)?

Just that I didn't notice this mentioned.

A warm welcome indeed.

I'll have a look at the social group, mibane. I was previously based in the Middle East and covered a lot of events in Bahrain. Still finding my depth here. A couple of trips to Karratha have opened my eyes to the wonderful landscapes here.

Best regards
