@Simon K Excellent job with the Summer 2014 shot. Lovely colour + slight motion blur making it look more dynamic. The paddleboarder and the smith with sparks are great shots too!
@jct us101 Awesome light!
Other recent shot are very nice as well.

The scene below was captured no more than 2 hours ago while returning from a cycling trip. K100D + Sigma 28-300 (180mm).

@ChristianRock, @Jan178: Thanks. The last picture is from the Stockholm Skansen (a sort of open-air museum). That lady asked us not to use camera flash (as it might discolour things) so it was photographed handheld 1/10s without IS.

It was an interesting technology, but the physical limitations of the old and small sensors were a stronger factor. Nice daisies.


Without a lamp though! But it nicely shows the bokeh of that Helios lens.

I used this 10 MPix CCD "superzoom" camera only for a limited time and didn't like it much. While the Leica lens 12x zoom was quite impressive, the sensor performance (especially at the tele end) wasn't. Definitely not for suitable for bird photography.
Here's a few samples from this camera.









@tuco Interesting shot. Makes me almost dizzy. :) But it's at least something different.

Nice work, guys! Lovely CCD colours.

Here's a "Super CCD" shot (FujiFilm FinePix S602 Zoom).
Photographed in Scotland somewhere above Pitlochry, 2008/08.

Rödlöga island, Sweden, photographed 2009/07.
K-m/K2000 (K10D CCD sensor) + DA-L 18-55mm
Developed from PEF RAW in Pentax Photo Lab (batch conversion with default settings, very similar to OOCJ).

Those unknown kids must be adult now. :)

Lovely colour tone!


Love this shot. The frog looks almost metallic.

@brewmaster15 Thanks for your response and for not sending welterweight fighters into a featherweight class competition. :D I look forward to your next awesome birding shots! :cool:

Cool shots, guys!
@Peter AU Interesting colour tones of an Australian sunset - thanks for sharing and welcome!

Pardon my ignorance. Some of the shots above come from a Nikon D60 body. Isn't it a 10 MPix camera? ;-)

@brewmaster15 Love that angry bird! Great birding work.

Not really on steroids but such a contrasty water glitter asks for some. :) K100D + DA 16-45/4

@paulh Nice composition and yellow-blue contrast!
@Simon K Excellent shot! I must take out my Sigma 28-300 again.

The picture below was taken yesterday during my day off spent in mountains nearby.
The area was (until recently) used by the army hence "inaccessible" (well...) but thanks to the fact, the nature there is in an almost pristine condition.

My 6MPix rig again, no post-processing applied.

NO tripod. - NO ND filter. - NO sugar added.

Just my K100D at ISO 200 and DA 16-45/4 stopped down to F20 or F22. If only the sun wasn't so harsh.

@Simon K Not a typical scene for a DA 55-300mm F4-5.8 but captured well!
@glinda Love this shot. Especially the foggy background.

Thanks! Soft light after a short shower helped here, also the -1/3 EV exposure to prevent blue sensor pixels from oversaturation.


Thanks! These seem to appear more often in violet, sometimes mixed with these blues. Also white or pink varieties may appear but those are quite rare.
Indeed! I'm a proud owner of my 6Mpix rig :), actually using it more than a more recent 20MPix CMOS body.

@glinda That's really nice!
@paulh The scene with the pier has some dynamics to it

Anemone hepatica photographed today using my 6MPix rig (actually a lot of detail in the full res picture!) + DA 16-45/4.

@brewmaster15 While I hate these fish 'spree killers', that three cormorant shot is a really good one!
@paulh Good job with the heron. It's not easy to get close to them.

@jon.partsch Excellent job with the singer with respect to lighting conditions and the used gear. Such a photograph could be on her CD cover.

Here's something a bit abstract (actually Xanthoria parietina). K100D + DA 16-45/4.

Sweden and Norway are great places for photography.



Thanks! Some 10,000 CCD shots still wait for posting but no worries - I'm rather picky. :D



Indeed! :lol:



My K-m had problems with random resetting (battery compartment contacts + dead capacitor not keeping settings) so I sold it for ~$40 back in 2018.
The DA-L 18-55 was a tad aberrating lens, separately sold for the same price.
On the other hand this set (maybe thanks to K10D-like sensor) was capable of capturing really vivid colours.

@paulh: Beautiful colours!

As for cloudscapes - this one has been stitched from ten 16mm verticals, colours rendered on a K100D CCD sensor.
