K-1 Mark II!

3 weeks ago nobody heard of a updated K1 and now people are disappointed because it's not a NEW FF (News sensor, new AF system etc) but a upgrade from original K1.
I dont get it !

The K1 is an excellent camera, we all know that, and for about the same price they replace it for an even better camera IQ wise, I think that's great !
I can't wait to see the result in high ISO with this MkII :eek:

Im not saying this is perfect, the first thing that comes to mind is the lack of an updated Buffer / UHS II system, but with no increase in price I still think the K1 MkII is a hell of a deal.

I've got high expectations for the next FF camera from Pentax though, but I think Ill need to be patient as I dont think it's around the corner.

I bought ON1 Raw 2017 early on when it was in beta stage, and I didnt like it at all really. It was in Sept 2016 (or 2016??) if I remember correctly.
Since then I'v seen the Team at ON1 being hard at work and in about a year or so they did improve their software tremendously to a point ON1 Photo RAW 2018 is getting close to Lr as a complete RAW editor / Catalog program.
I think in a year from now they will be on par with Lr if progress continues.

As of now Im still using Lr as my main Photo program, mainly because I've been building presets that I use everyday and they save me a lot of time. So far its impossible to export them and import in ON1.

But from time to time I use On1 2018 exclusively to see where I can go and how fast I can develop my pics, and I am getting used to the interface and overall I think it's faster than Lr, and also has some killing masking option and tools (Focus Stacking is really easy with ON1 for example).
About the myth of Adobe Lr + Photoshop being expensive because of their subscription model, I dont buy it. ON1 has a major upgrade every year and it's about 100 each time, Lr is about 130 / year so it's not that much more expensive and so far has the edge.
What I dont like in Lr is the sluggyness and overall lack of new features though.



Wonderful city, I was there 2 weeks ago but only stayed for a meeting then had to go back to Paris.
I've visited Perpignan a couple times back in the 90's, and I've got great souvenirs from the night life :D

Thanks for your comments Teiki, I am a big fan of your photos as well, very inspiring B&W and more than this your pics tell a story everytime.
Watching your work in the film days is even a greater glimpse into your world, I like that.

I have no idea where you Live Teiki, but this look like a place I'd like to live !
I was fortunate to live in Ivory Coast for years and the weather there, despite rainy season, was exactly what I need :)
When you woke up in the morning and you know that you'll see the sun for a long period during the day is priceless to me.



Wow, that means you've been in Paris during flooding then !
It is my first time being in Paris and being a witness of such floods, that looks scary when you think the worst flooding (early 1900th) was more than 1m50 about present levels.


Thanks mate, lighting was really poor on that day.

Camera came back from repair in 12 days round trip, not bad.
In the meantime I noticed one of my SD Cards is broken, some plastic pieces are gone and I've got difficulties inserting in either K3 or K1, Im scared it could damage the camera slots once agina, I decided to order a new card.

Something different, my daughter's money keeper : Le Dragon !

Shot with Tamron 90mm Macro (excellent on all Pentax Bodies I've had but really shines with the K1 resolution).

1st shot -
1 Godox AD200 + Gel
1/1250 @ F/5,6

I was shooting at 1/1250s to reduce the light from the Pentax AF360 Flash that was on the left of camera (I switched it off for this shot), and in order to get this one to shoot in HSS I have to set it to full power (1/1), I can't lower the flash power. the only way to lower the full power flash was to either set it further away or increasing the speed.

The second shot was done with 1/2000s @ F/11 with full CTO Gel on the AD200 and 1/2 CTB Gel on AF360 on the left as fill light.

My daughter want to have some more shots done with some of her Playmobil :D

interresting numbers you've put into perspective here Norm, thanks!

The K1 is my favorite body I've used so far, coming from a K20D, K5 and K3, it has a something special and I think it's the viewfinder which is great (among other things).

Unfortunately I think it came up a little late and I also think the lack of new FF lenses in the following months after it's release ruined the momentum Pentax was having with the K1 initial success.

I would recommend this camera to any Pentax Shooters (and beyond) with no hesitation.

See the option below on your K1. If Electronic shutter is enabled you can't (dont need to) use MLU feature.

It might be because you are using Electronic Shutter, try de activate it first.

Very curious about the source as well, if there is one.
Maybe he is talking about the Shutter Shock issue.

K1 - SD Card Slot #2 defect

Hi all,

first of all Happy New Year to all Pentax forum Members !

About a week ago, while shooting a concert my K1 froze (it happens very rarely) and I had to unplug the grip, remove battery etc.
I quickly checked the pictures I took before it froze and the last couple frames were missing.

Because the K1 writing speed is really slow, I can't use the feature where the Pictures are written on both SD cards simultaneously, therefore Im using some smaller size SD cards that I change quiet often on the spot. When I tried to change the SD Card in slot #2, I noticed I couldnt re insert a Card inside this slot. Something gets in the way.

So here it comes, I emailed Pentax Ricoh France and they told me I need to get back to the store where I bought the camera in order to get the warranty service.
I've got a couple shoot already schedule for early january and I have no idea how long it's gonna take to fix this issue, Ricoh couldnt tell me unfortunately. So I might wait a little bit until sending my camera.

Anyone had this issue before ?

Long time no see....

After a few months being away from this thread I have great pleasure looking at my fellow pentaxian friends pictures with the K1 gem.
I press the thumb up button so often :D

I have taken a lot of pics during this days away from forum, this camera is so versatile !

Still mainly using my 3 combo lenses, FA 20-35mm | DFA 24-70mm | DFA* 70-200mm and Im pretty much covered.

Last WE I had a problem with the SD Card slot #2 no retaining the SD Card, I can push the SD Card inside the slot, but it keeps coming back not staying in place.
I send an email to french support, hopefully it will be an easy fix.

oh man...feel sorry for you.

When I discovered my camera was suffering the WD issue, I had a few email exchange with French Ricoh support with sample pics, then had to talk directly to the official repairshop that Ricoh redirected me to.
there, They had no clue how to deal with this issue, I forwarded them email exchange, this forum specific thread and some other french forums reporting the issue. After a week of phone calls etc they told me that I can send them my camera but they wouldnt know what to do, that they will need to check a couple things ...but they had no clue what to do ...I decided no to send the camera and waste my time.

It's a shame the way Ricoh handle this issue, at least in France.
