Pentax 645D Image Transm. S-SW123

Luckily I've got Pk Tether to work again. It turned out that the camera must have a memory card for this program to work. I remembered that Pk Tether did not need a memory card in the camera.

Thanks Adam. I solved my problem now. Got the PkTether work again but I I'm going to just in case to buy IT1 too. PkTether freezes in the middle of the workshop sometimes.

Can anyone tell me do this program work with Windows 10 with latest updates, and is this program still available anywhere in Europe? I used so far Pk Tether but after Windows update it does not recognize Pentax 645D anymore. I use the tethering when I teach photography. That's why I need it. Thanks for the answer, although I do believe that it's hard to find anyone who uses this program.

Does pkTriggerCord Now Work With The K3II

Yes, I know how frustrating it can be. I connect camera via USB 3. But I can`t understand how can I be the only one who can get the program work. I tried another computer today which runs on Windows 10. And I got it work. I made printscreen again. I try to put link here where you see bigger image http://andruskannel.planet.ee/pk_triggercord/pktriggergord_win10_k3ii.jpg

All relevant windows open. Pay attention to the red lines, URL address where I got program. Reference to the link where I got the program. Version that works is 0.84.02 It is said that Windows need GTK2 but I do not know what that means. Perhaps it is important. After download go to program directory and open the program by using the file named pktriggercord not pktriggercord-cli

My observations: When I connect camera then camera lcd flashes three times and after that connect. In windows 10 the program was not able set shutterspeed. Must be determined in the camera. In windows 8.1 when I restart camera AND THE PROGRAM two or three times I am able to set shutterspeed inside program too. In windows 10 program crashed once. I have to use a work situation thoroughly, to say how stable or suitability for use with this program is.

Hi TonyW.

This may not be what you're looking for but it seems that Bowens has new XMS flash heads supporting high speed flash for Pentax too. I'm not very well researched how it works but if it works then this is very good. Because there is not lot of high speed flash options for Pentax.

645Z sync speed issues

I took the time and made a few pictures to illustrate the story. The link to the images http://www.andruskannel.planet.ee/shutter_vignet Sorry for the boring images. Just studio white wall.
I had not been able to generate problem with Elinchrom and skyport. My most used combo. Worked properly today. Sometimes I see very little black stripes with that combo too. So i took my first radio trigger system-Microsync Digital that I bought many years ago and where I was exposed to this problem for the first time and there they were, those black stripes. I tried to different cameras and all suffered the problem. Flash head I used was Bowens Esprit because Microsync need adapter to connect with Elinchrom.
And I did the test where I connected Microsync Digital trigger to camera sync terminal using the provided cable and that did not solve the problem. So, I can't blame the bad touch in hot shoe.

So my conclusin is that if you see those black stripes ( that is shutter) and you use radio trigger, then radio trigger causes the problem. I'm a photographer, not a physicist so that's why I can't explain why so. And the only solution that I know of - bad solution- use synk cable or optically- flash in hotshoe or good solution, buy a very good radio system.

645Z sync speed issues

In some reason Pentax shutters do not work well with radio triggers. I remember I already needed to use 1/160 with my Pentax k20 to avoid that shutter vigneting (black stripe ). Pentax k20 sync speed is 1/180. Same time with same studio canon camera did not suffer the problem at all. I do not remember specific Canon model. And now all Pentax K-5 cameras I use need 1/125 or 1/160 to avoid shutter vignet. And if I use pc sync cable or flash mounted in hotshoe I can use 1/180 without vignet. So i believe if you use cable then you are able to use 1/125 with your 645Z. But yes there is something specific not only with your 645z but all Pentax cameras that i tried. And yet there are some radio triggers that works better with Pentax and others not so well. Just try cable and you see it. Pentax camera do not like radio trigger. And I know the cable is not solution for you. That`s why I just live with that 1/100 when I use 645D

Hi Frederic.

Do you use a radio trigger? If so try to use pc sync cord cable or try to open other flash(es) optically with flash mounted camera hot shoe instead. Does this solve your problem. If so radio triggering causes the problem. I use original 645D in studio and forced to use 1/100 if I use camera with elinchrome flashes and skyport radio trigger.

No, but I'm going to try tomorrow with another K5 camera. Instead of a ND filter if you`re doing airy landscapes or traffic citiscapes? Thanks for the clue, how to add a picture. Did not know this.

This feature is very handy and useful to me when I am too lazy to carry studio lightings or there is no space for those bulky studio flashes that I have. If there is no space for flasheads, tripods, cables, softboxes and so on – small bathrooms or other small Interiors.

Very good is to do the reproduction. I am often invited to the exhibition halls to take pictures and if the Flash is allowed, then this is a very handy technique. Place camera on a tripod and then I walk one side to the painting or whatever this is and open camera with remote control and I repeat it other side.

I have a relaxing task to students in the media what they always enjoy. One is the photographer. On the other hands I give Af-540fgz flash and the third is a model. In between there will be cooperation and synergy and lot of fun.

These three examples, perhaps open up where and when I use multi exposure and flash. I've uploaded image to illustrate if there is no space to studio flashes and one small 540 fgz can be very useful. But since I have not added images here before I do not know if I did it correctly.

Thank your reply fs999. Do your K-5 and Metz 48 AF works in Sl mode combined with multiple exposure ( 2 exposures set up by camera menu ) Auto Ev adjustment- it have to work both way- checked and unchecked. Resolved the problem for me. Although I think there is a problem with the camera, I got it work. I'm going to have to choose between more than two exposure to get flash to work.

Thank you Caver. Interesting. I try it here with classic K-5 and it does not work. Onboard flash set to be controller, thats how I use the combination too. First flash works fine, second I see how the flash work but the camera does not synchronize more so I can see in the picture only first flash. Multiple exposure works, but not the second flash. But it is good to know that K5 II that thing works. I thought that these two cameras are behaving in the same way.

---------- Post added 11th Jan 2015 at 16:19 ----------

Thank you Caver I got it work. I read that you used 4 exposures (set up the multiple exposure menu ) and I changed just in case the 4 too from default 2 and voila it works. But there is bug it does not work for some reason if there is 2 exposures selected in menu. I've been using K20 so far and borrowed K5 just to know If this camera is suitable for me or not.

Hi,

It works with Pentax K 10 and K 20 but not with Pentax K 5. I tryed of the five different cameras with latest firmware 1.16 It looks like the camera as a defect that have not reported yet. At least I have not found anything about it on google.

If anyone can confirm or refute my findings It would help me a lot. This feature is very important my photography. I wish to buy Pentax K 5 II but may forced to buy K 3.

Thanks for the help.

Can any Pentax K3 owner answer question about top lcd lighting. Is there some button that I can push to turn light on or off like it is in Pentax K 20 ( +/- button) and Pentax 645 D ( dedicated button ) or there is pentax K5 solution ( Lcd lighting is active when camera exposure reading is active ) that I do not like at all.

If there is no way to assign that task to any button, then I add it to this firmware update wishlist thread. Thank you. And sorry my English

You may ask here Kontaktivorm - PENTAX They are official Pentax seller in Estonia and provide support too. They fix Pentax cameras here using original parts for that. Maybe Estonia is closer for you than Japan.

I can scroll images with arrow buttons but do I can zoom? I have no 645 D with me at the moment, but I have K 20. With K 20 I can scroll with arrow buttons but I cant zoom. I can zoom with thumb wheel. I think it works the same with 645 D. The problem is that I take several images and then like to review images and show my model for feedback. But camera writing and thinking. And then we both patiently waiting :), finally camera shows last image and I try to zoom in with thumb-wheel. But it takes little more when i can actually zoom. When I do not wait that little more I change aperture. Maybe there is possible to zoom with arrow buttons I look it next time when I take 645 D. Maybe it is possible with K 20 too. I have worked with Pentax cameras several years but I often discover something that I did not know..
