K200D -- battery advice?
Posted By zippythezip

If you search "Pentax battery depleted" you will find nearly all Pentax cameras that take AA batteries are a camera to avoid, My K200 and istDS died of this problem even after wasting money on Eneloops and lithiums . They would not go past taking 50 shots.

For CCD colour and relabilityI would buy a K10 that takes better battery packs.

I did read once that using an external battery pack avoided this problem but cant remember if the K200 has a outlet for an external pack?

Yea the tilt screen is a good plus, its like my Oly tilt screen. I like the top display on the K3 Oh my, I think $999 CDN or $770 USD is pretty good, but I can also get the K3 with 18-135 for $840 USD.

OK so my go to camera shop has the KP and the K3II for the same $999 price got me thinking of getting another Pentax camera. I am leaning towards the K3 and never used a flash yet so wont miss that.
Not interested in a K70 as it reminds me of my K50 which I disliked and the only camera I have ever sold. Need help here =)

Just miss a few weeks then, I have done it in the past and no one really minds. Some days I find nothing to get me inspired to use a camera.

I have missed lots of days, PC fried a hard drive, and then a lack of motivation. Now just going through the pain of reinstalling stuff.
Have a brand new Oly 12-40 on its way next week so I am sure that will get me going. Now to catch up.

When I shoot a photo I want it represent something I have seen, pretty close. I may change to black and white, lighten/darken but not too much. Crop out dog poop etc =)
Lately I have become totally disillusioned with photography.
At work two people who do sell their work were showing me work ones they sold. The ones I remarked as nice and they were so lucky getting nice shots. Here are the answers.
"I like the bridge, but there was no fence post so I added it along with the clouds"
"I added the deer and another tree"
"the ram had a broken horn so I copied the other side"
"added a few seagulls"
"there was no sunset so I added one"
an it goes on and on.
And folks bought them, I say as they don't know and don't care or mind. I would feel a con artist doing this and its affecting my views on photos in general unless its stated upfront whats been done.
I felt after saying how nice the photos were like I had been took for a ride.
What can be done with photoshop is like an art form on its own, but where do you draw the line?

Well I do miss days due to weather and work but I am in. No idea what gear I will use any day, that's what I enjoy about the "Daily In"



Hope you have fun with your K5, I enjoyed mine. My K200 died of "depleted battery" so I gave it away.

Note here to other "Daily" folks ask me before buying a K5 =) I am not going to put it in the sell market but would let it go cheap to a good Daily home.

Here is a link to the website store. I read here it says a Pentax k mount is planned as at the moment only Nikon lenses can be mounted.

I have not tried the VF-4 but I have seen a few photos of cameras with it attached. The closest I have is a "Hoodman" and attach it to the K-01 with elastics that are used to hold hair in place, forget the name.
Its great but with added bulk you would be better off getting an old K5.

I have the tripod mount.
The only draw back I see is the camera will not sit flat and rolls towards the lens. I have tried a hoodman which works great but is bulky and a flip digiscreen but I find I always trying to lift the top flap to see info along top edge. The clearviewer works great as you can place your hand along the top of the camera and block the sun, now when you zoom you remove your hand and sun may glare . Same problem maybe for using manual lenses. The tripod adapter screw works great for the Q cameras but not so good for the K-01, I would not recommend.
I should add I wear glasses and have no problems

Still using mine and now going out to find another one. I use a clearviewer on mine and this takes it close to my face and blocks the sun. I like this so much I cant go back to using my K5
When I travel I use my Oly EM10, but there is still something I enjoy about my K-01
