Sticky: Theme Contest #138 - February, 2018 (Moonscape)
Posted By Ole
Replies: 0
Views: 905
The theme for the official PentaxForums photo contest for February, 2018 is:

Moonscape

This month's topic is "Moonscape". That means a scene illuminated by the moon, where the moon need not be in the image. The moon can be included as long as the scene is illuminated by the moon (and not by the sun or artificial light). The scene can be a landscape, a cityscape, or any set of objects. Good luck!

It takes a good long while to scan the image captured on the sensor in electronic shutter (ES) mode. Longer than the shutter speed you've set. You could actually manage to move the camera (I always do) before the scan of the image is done and shake reduction cannot compensate for that. Which probably is why it is disabled by default.

If you shoot at, say 1/250s with ES, each part of the image will look as if exposed at 1/250s (e.g. motion is frozen in any part of the image), but it takes much longer than 1/250s to read the sensor from top to bottom (the time is not specified by Pentax, but we're talking something in the 1/10s range). So the time difference between capturing the top part of the frame and the bottom part is much longer than the shutter speed set. Bottom line, each part of your image will be sharp (no motion blur), but the overall image may be distorted either because you moved the camera or because the object moved.

Electronic shutter may benefit shooting stationary objects when using a tripod, but not much beyond that. As you can tell I've been quite disappointed by ES which I once thought would be the answer to vibration issues caused by the mechanical shutter.

That's a welcome product since it can scan 126 film! My somewhat temperamental Reflecta 10M scanner cannot do that, so I can live with the lower resolution of the Kodak thingy for my 126 film.

Same here. I have never turned my cameras off when changing lenses and I have never had any issues with that approach.

Camera display not registering and some photos are blacked out
Posted By Ole

My first thought is that mirror lock-up shooting is engaged although resetting to factory settings should have cleared that.

After turning on the camera, press the up button on the four way controller. This opens up the drive mode screen.
Make sure that the left-most icon (single frame shooting) is selected.

My second thought is that the camera is set to manual exposure with the shutter speed and F-stops set to their smallest values (like 1/8000s and F22).

This lens is switched to manual focus by pulling the focusing ring towards the camera and then turning it to focus. Push the ring away from the camera body to re-engage AF.

K / M / A Lenses - what is the difference (Pentax Newbie)
Posted By Ole
Replies: 7
Views: 410
One place to start would be this page, which explains the various K-Mount series of lenses.

Basically, K / M / A lenses predates the autofocus era. Neverteheless, these lenses can be used (with a few exceptions) on any Pentax K-Mount camera, be that manual focus film camera, autofocus film camera, or digital camera.

A few A lenses saw the use of plastic parts and are perhaps less durable. Optically there are no general differences. Refer our lens database for user reviews.
