THANK YOU ALL!! I gave it a try (converting to screw drive)with the help from Blacknigh965 video today. For me having the video made it so easy and even more having my camera do everything it showed in the video. I did it with my K5 and once done worked there and on the K3ii no problem. Again thanks everyone here for the help.

Maybe could borrow a friends pc - all the links still good? On a newer pc what would I edit the file with. Iím going to watch that video again it looks relatively painless. Assume can use the lens on any body since itís editing the lens file correct? Meaning is use older body to do this could then use on my K3ii

---------- Post added 10-12-20 at 09:24 PM ----------

Any MAC users do this? Any advise on editing the file or the process?

Thanks for checking in. I just watched the video. I have a K10 and K5 K3ii and a Mac not a PC - I assume that video would be still good if using a Mac?

Ughh I bought new a few years ago - heck maybe 5 if I think about it. A 300DA f4 lens. I didnít use it a lot for a long time. I noticed the autofocus was wonky but didnít think was a big deal. Well now the autofocus doesnít work at all. I tried on another camera and sure enough itís not the body itís the lens for sure. Wasnít there a recall at one point or did I make that up. So now what do I do? Anyone have this happen and or get it repaired or do I have to live with manual focus on it forever? Thanks in advance

I don't have the pro card but do have the mobi card -I use it mostly for posting to social media on the fly. I shoot raw then card 1 then select shots convert to jpg in camera to card 2 ( the mobi card) then send to iPhone via the card. Hope that helps - ok maybe not but I love my mobi card better then flu card

Pocketwizard & Pentax 540fgz II help

Yup they are all on same channel, The flash works I may have said that wrong both flashes work normally. Yup they are all turned on. Swapped the shoe as I thought maybe that was the case but got it to work on the old flash with both shoes and wires. There is no direct port to the flash hence the adapter.

Figure just easier to show you my question






I can not get my Pentax 540FGZ II to fire using Pocketwizards - I can get the Pentax AF-540 FGZ to fire no problem.

Before you ask I have the K3ii so can't control both if I want to use two flashes off camera. I tried the hot shoe and wires on booth cameras and again works on the older model not the newer one.

Any thoughts would be great.

The Nutcracker is in full swing and I was able to attend a dress rehearsal where they allowed photos. I LOVE this lens and the K3ii

Recommendations for twin-zoom camera bag?

I am also looking for a small(ish) everyday bag. I have a Tamarac Velocity7 I have had I don't know forever and it is way to small for what I want to carry. I am looking to cary my K3ii with a grip 24-70 2.8 / Sigma 70-200 2.8 and maybe a flash. I know the sigma is big but I would just like to have that reach here and there. I was looking at a Lowepro Slingshot 202AW today that I really liked. I like a sling type in general to be honest.

Wondering if some of you folks that mentions bags above could post a photo of two of your gear in the said bags to give us an idea of how full or not full they are.

Love my Tamarac but the K3ii with the grip leave pretty much no room for extra lens of flash.

Thanks in advance

So was all excited but apparently failed to do my homework :(

I have a af540fgz and af540fgzii and a K3ii

I bought three PoketWizardIIIs and was excited to try them out. Apparently as I mention failed to realize I can not simply plug to PW into the flash. I have found a few older threads about this saying I should buy this Impact Mini Phono Plug to Female Hot Shoe Cord 8091020 B&H Photo

Anyone else use that or have any other options?

Thanks in advance.
