Any affordable (low cost) AC adapter for the Pentax D-LI90 battery?

Yes. I currently have an old Wasabi D-LI90 which is not holding too much charge and i will remove the internal battery to convert it to a dummy. I am not sure if this will work but I think I should give it a try.

Yes you are indeed correct. The K-5 (as also my K-7 and K-3) comes with a DC input socket. The K-01 however does not :-(.

I am trying to do this for my K-01.

sorry I should have clarified. I am not looking for the battery charger. Am looking for a battery eliminator for using the camera on AC adapter.

Hi guys,

I could find the AC adapter for the D-LI109 battery but not the D-LI90. Actually I can find one but it is well over USD100.

Any other options or DIY methods?

Wanted to get one for my K-01.

Thanks

Time lapse for 3D printer using K-01?

Wow the cost of the AC adapter is higher than I expected. But I managed to find a cheap Chinese made one on eBay. That should do for now.

The intervalometer will not work for 3D printing as the camera will easily shoot more than 1000 shots as some prints can take up to a day to do. And also the camera have to be triggered to shoot only at a pre defined time such that the print heads clear the bed.

The main issue with the k01 is that it has no remote trigger socket. Looks like I have to trigger using remote control.

Yes that's my understanding too. The K01 has no mechanical shutter so should be more ideal for timelapse. I will have to look into a suitable battery replacement source but that is easier to deal with compared to seeing how i can shoot the camera at the right time.



There is no port for me to connect the K01 to unfortunately...wondering if i should use my K-7 instead



No I wanted to combine all the time lapse photo for something like this:
















You Tube






Yes. I will be using manual mode, probably manual focus (not sure), maybe a 50mm lens on a tripod.

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has tried to use the K-01 for time lapse photography for a 3D printer? I am looking to get a 3D printer (soon) and am looking for inspirations if someone has used the K-01 (or any other pentax camera) for time lapse in this manner? I have the K-01 and K-07 at my disposal. If anyone has done this, would love to see/hear your setup.

Thanks!

Hi TaoMaas, any idea why the K-01 (and this includes my other cameras like K-3 as well)'s videos have kind of artifacts even though I am shooting in relatively good lights indoor? I have also bought a Canon M50 and under the same light, the canon does not have this issue. Is this attributed to the bitrate of the K-01?

Thanks for all the tips on pre-planning and storyboarding. I will take note.

Assuming I need to film a scene that requires more accurate focusing, would stopping the lens down help at all given that the K1 cannot auto focus during video? I just want to make sure that all the frames are sharp if possible.

Also I kept seeing people saying that K-01 bitrate is too low. My understanding is that K-01 records in 25Mbps thereabout? and I read elsewhere that youtube just need something like 8Mbps?

What is the limitation of K-01 for youtube videos? If the limitation is really that bad, I will just abandon the idea of using K-01 altogether.

Any thoughts?

Hi all, my K-01 is not getting a lot of use these days. I shot mainly with my K-3. Wifey is now taking an interest in making cooking videos and I wanted to help as much as I can.

The longer term solution the way I see it is to buy a better camera optimized for video (I have the Canon 200D in sight) but I thought hey why not give the K-01 a try?

This is the shooting condition:
1) camera mounted on tripod on extension column via super clamp.
2) No sound
3) External lighting via LED lights, etc

The main issue with the K-01 is that it does not continuous AF during video mode and when i press the AF button, the AF hunts a bit and this is distracting for the viewer.

So I would like to ask what are the tips of using the K-01 in this manner?

Thanks

Wow. That was awesome information. Many thanks for doing this for me. This is much appreciated.

I think I have a clear picture what this clamp is all about. I will get one unit on ebay.

Thanks again!!

Thanks. That is certainly beyond my budget. What do you think of the ebay one I posted. I understand it is not a C-stand per se but what do you think of its suitability?



Thanks. I am now searching for the super clamp you mentioned. It appears the manfrotto super clamp is to clamp onto a "rod" of some sort? I cant seem to find a version that is intended to go on the tripod on manfrotto website.

Edit: Is this the one you are referring to? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Manfrotto-035B-Super-Clamp/351943436197?epid=140...itleDesc=0%7C0

That is a great idea. I don't have a monopod at the moment but I could remove the centre columns of several of my other tripods and am wondering if these kind of clamps can be adapted to clamping the centre columns?



Thanks for that. I found this one on ebay.

Hello all pentaxians, haven't posted for a long time. Hope you guys can help me out here.

Wifey is getting into food videos. I am searching for a tripod setup with a horizontal extension column so that the camera can be mounted directly over the food to allow a top-down video shoot. I have checked the Manfrotto range but just wondering if you guys have any recommendation for something similar?

Thanks!

I have also just installed the trial version of ACDSEE Photo ultimate 18. I think the software looks promising and has lens profile although missing some lenses such as the 35mm macro. Overall I think the editing is less intuitive than lightroom but i have only started to play with it so will explore further.

Thanks. I now looked into the G85 and GX85 and watch a few youtube videos. I think the G85 is a bit bigger but the GX85 looks impressive.

Now the decision is even harder!

Seeing this is a thread for On1 Photo Raw, I hope I can ask a question here. I have been trialing Photoraw 2017.

On lightroom when i adjust the white and black, I press the shift key to see how much I can adjust. I cannot figure out how to do this in On1. Any tips please?
