I did not get too close to him! Once we found one on our deck.... took a few photos and then shut the door til he went away . Once we found one sitting on our back gate... my dog and I turned around and went out the front gate..he was still there when we came back from our walk an hour later. And we live in the center of an urban city .

Precision Camera K-3 Repair

well, I recently updated to version 1.30.
I have experienced the black shots just once since updating the firmware .
my SD cards:
SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s HC I class 10 32GB and
SanDisk Ultra 30MB/s HC I class 10 32 GB,
both are relatively new.
I probably should have sent it back again before the warranty expired, but just did not want to deal with it , and it does happen infrequently.

Precision Camera K-3 Repair

A followup on my K-3 camera repair.
I do not know if it is related to the original problem.

About 2 months after I got the camera back from Precision I developed the following problems-
1. Sometimes the camera just freezes up . Won't turn off , won't take a shot. So far, removing the battery has solved that problem.
2. Ocasionally , my images show up as totally black screens. I shoot in both Raw and JPEG, 2 separate cards.Later when reviewing the photos on the PC, the JPEG was okay , but the RAW is blank Black. Sometimes both are blank totally black shots. This most often happens when I have the camera set to take multiple shots , but has also happened when shooting just one shot at a time.
Again, so far, removing the battery and the SD cards and starting over will get it working again. One evening , this happened multiple times. Most times , it's just one or two times.

I bought brand new SD cards , the best recommended , and now format my cards on my PC with SDFormatter, but that doesnt seem to help.
I am up to date on all firmware updates, just did that last one recently.

Altho it was still under warranty thru August , I declined to send it again for another month to Precision.
It only happens occasionally , although once it was as the most inopportune time and I did not get the shot I really wanted.

What it has done is caused me to doubt my investment in Pentax/Ricoh. I would really like to invest in a longer zoom as well as a wide angle lens, but that isn't going to happen when I don't have a lot of faith in this camera anymore. If/When it fails, I guess I'll have to explore my options. I only have 5 pentax lenses and am not going to invest any more .
I'm sorry to have lost my confidence in Pentax, as I loved both of my DSLRs, the Kr and the K-3 . I absolutely love the K-3. I never doubted my choice of Pentax till now.
