Battery grip: yay or nay?

I've used a grip on my K5 II, and now my K3 (even used the grip on my LX & on my Super Program). I find it gives me more options to hold the camera more comfortably. When I upgrade to the K1, the grip will also be purchased.

I use a Sandisk in slot 1 and a PNY in slot 2 and have the card error problem with the PNY in slot 2, but not when I put it in slot 1. When I format the PNY card, it works for awhile and when I look at my images from the Sandisk, I then get the card error for slot 2. Its very intermittent. I've reformatted that card in my computer and then the camera a number of times. All my photos are on the Sandisk, so until I fill that one I'm not going to do anything about it. I'll see if the camera starts to put the photos on the PNY card after I fill up the Sandisk card or I have to switch the cards.

K3 Crazy Mirror Sickness (Mirror Flapping Lockup) - Report Yours Here!

What's with Pentax and their mirrors. My LX had "sticky mirror" after almost 20 years of use which was common for older LX's, but at least that was after many years of use, not right out of the box. I traded it in to Adorama for a K5II and now the K3 has mirror flap problems. Fortunately my new K3 is issue free so far.

Got it on my Nook, just needed to reload Adobe Reader. Much more convenient than reading off my computer. Still wish I could get a printed version, without printing the ~300 pages myself.

Sent the FluCard to B & H for some trade-in money. Will use it toward a more useful lens.

Downloaded the book. Also wish I could a printed copy. I'm trying to get a copy on my Nook, but not having much luck yet. Reading the e-book on my computer while trying the camera is not very convenient. I may end up printing the over 300 pages. Glanced through the pages and this is the manual that Pentax (Oops, I mean Ricoh) should have included. Looks very comprehensive.

Was it damaged in shipping? Did the box look intact or was there a dent or crumpling on one of the corners. Perhaps someone at the company where you bought it, dropped or bumped it before putting in the shipping box.

I know that it is Ricoh's doing, not LR's. I'm just not thrilled about it. Just "venting" about what Ricoh is doing to the Pentax brand.

K3 & Lightroom Make & Model Naming

I was looking at some of my pictures in Lightroom and noticed that the ones I took with my traded in K5II showed Pentax as the make and model, while the ones I shot with my new K3 showed Ricoh as the make and Pentax K3 as the model. So Pentax is not a "Make" anymore, just a "Model." Sort of like saying Fiat is the Make and Ferrari is a Model. Ferrari (along with Maserati and Alfa-Romeo) are Makes owned by Fiat, not Fiat models. The 500 is a Fiat model. Pentax is a Make owned by Ricoh, not a Ricoh Model.

Got mine from B & H and like you, I was only interested in the camera and grip. Couldn't get the FluCard to work, don't really care, so I will see about trading it in for a lens.

K-3 Firmware Update 1.10 Released

Went from 1.03 to 1.10 successfully. Stepped away from the camera for a moment, when I came back the screen was blank, no "Complete". I wasn't sure what to do, but after a minute or two, I pressed the shutter slightly and the screen showed the normal information, so I assumed everything was good. Checked the firmware and it showed 1.10. i wish the word "Complete" remained on the screen until you shut the camera down or at least press the shutter, so you know when it completes.

FLUCARD PRO for Pentax K-3 Setup and How To Guide

Tried connecting, FluCard shows up on my phone, but connection goes in and out even with the phone right next to the camera. See the card on my computer, but nothing. Typing http://pentax takes me to the Pentax site. Typing http://192.168.1.1 takes me to a web search for that address. When I purchased this from B&H, I was only interested in the battery grip, I didn't really care about the FluCard, but I figured I would give it a try since I got it anyway. Since it bombed (don't really care), I am going to wait until B&H gives me my 4% promo and then I'll trade it in for a more useful lens.
