From my lens the Tamron 14/2.8AF and the 6x7 Fisheye (35/4.5) have this possibity - but I never used it.
Some of the new IRIX wide lens have this holder and Irix is selling ND Film Filters.

Thank you for your info. I have the 135 and will look for the Tessar Aspects in that use in future. As an exotic one I have the 120 on my list.

Hi


I know it is an old thread, but it is the closest I coud find to my topic.

I got some rolles 120 film from the INIDGO crowd fouding project and recently (with some delay) i used my 1st roll in my 6x7. In general pictures look nice but in all shots i found red light marks in dark areas.


Does anybody have an idea where this comes from? Failures in the film, xray-marks, failure in the lab? I am affaid the other rolls will show the same when I use them.

More pictures at Dies & Das / CineStillFilm 800T | Klaus-macht-Bilder.de .. mainly 135 shots

6x7 LS (Leave Shutter) Lens: Use on K-Bajonett
Posted By klaus123

Thank you - but I think I have been missunderstood: I want to use the 90LS as a Portrait Lens on the K1 and use the leave shutter under "normal" model shooting conditions to get short sync time of e.g. 1/500 under normal daylight conditons - In dark conditions I see no need for this.

So I rephrase the question: Is there any possibility to close the 6x7 - lens apperture by the internal camera lever? (This would trigger the shutter too)

After reviewing possible alternatives I am not clear which way to go...
Currently I have several Speedlights, a small Cactus Softbox and some Umbrellas - and in case accesss to a heavy Bowens System with 2 500WS heads (no HSS/TTL).
- One big advantage of bare flash bulbs (like studio strobe or RQ250) is the better light distribtion in big soft boxes (I do not have yet)
- On location the 60x60 SB is not too bad . the easiest and geapest way for more power would be a bracket that can fix 2 speedlights inside
- If I realy extend to a big SB for Studio use the bowens would do the job - I do not need HSS indoor
- many of the Akku-Alternatives are expensive, heavy or need another sender backpacked on the Cactus to enable Pentax HSS.


I think I will do some testing with a Bowens Studio-Flash and Pentax/Nikon Speedlights in a 60x90 Softbox to get a feeling for the needs before Photokina starts

I backed for a SuperEarlyBird with a Bowens-S-Mount and hope they will find enough backes.

I am using Cactus since they brought out the 1st V6 and meanwhile use V6II and RF60, It is a great system and the firmware support after purchasing was good so far - I realy can recommand to use that system.... and spend some bucks in the Kickstarter Campane.

are you happy with switching to FF?

Hello

I got my K1 app. 2 years ago...coming from a K3 & K01(which are still in use).

Even having a lot of lenses at that time I underestimated the effort for new lenses.

I started with a Tamron 28-75/2,8 and was very unsatisfied with - changing to a DFA24-70/2,8. For ocasional purpose (weight/range) I added meanwhile a Sigma UCIII 28-105 and a Tamron 24-135.

On the wide side DA12-24 and DA10-17 have the advantage that they cover FF with app. the same perspective as in Crop (> 16mm) ..... but I could not resist a Tamron 14/2,8 (AF) and a Fisheye-Takumar 17/4.

On the long side I still use the DA55-300WR on the K1 often because it is small and light - even it does not cover FF at all focal lengths. The weight of the long DFAs was much too high. My first compromise was a Sigma 100-300/4 (including 1,4 Converter) and later I added a DA200.


On the fast side the DA*55 works well on the K1 (as long as you do not use the original lens hood). The Sigma 30/1,4 and 24/1,8 were replaced by a 35Art and the Samyang 85 was replaces by a Sigma 85/1,4.

But I do not regret the change to FF.

Hello


Just in case you need some replacemets (like I needed) : The lens hood and the front ring (part with filer thread) are identical with the Tamron 24-70 G1 parts, but 1/2...1/3 of the price (in Germany at least)

Hello

I have the 135Macro, 165/2,8 and the 200/4 - in most cases I take the 165 with me and leave the others at home. For both non-Macros you should look an extension Ring I - minimum distance of the lens ist often too short.

HSS with trigger only signal (e.g. P67 + Cactus)
Posted By klaus123

The only way for these cameras is the use of LS-Lenses or permanent (Halogen/LED) light instead of flash light

From my experience a distance of 3 stops between ambient and flash light is enough to be ok even with 1/30 of a second for most subjects

Assist Cactus with V6 II PTTL testing

"Cactus help": I did too

HSS on old V6 - in my view over-evaluated. I have 2V6II, 2V6 and 2RF60 - makes 3 units that are HSS capable - but I never had a need for more than 2 HSS- devices. HSS always means lots of ambient light - most of the time 1 flash unit is best if you don't wand to destroy the ambient moode.

Hello

I use a G3-100mm for 6x7 and a G3-50mm for the K1.
For the use on K1 the focal length of the 67 is too long and the sweet spot too big - same situation is the G3-50mm on a Crop-Pentax.

A 53mm on the Q will be much worst - It is on of the sensless Q-adaptations....like the 35mm-6x7-Fisheye ;)

I talked about TTL .... HSS is working fine with the RF60 - that update was the reason to purchase my 1st V6II.
Meanwhile I got a 2nd V6II - waiting for the Pentax-TTL-Update.

Curently I enjoy the option that the old Pentax flashes now can be zoom-controled

Only back side is that RF60 will get the Update significantly later than it will be available for the V6II.

May be we should include the Da 60-250+DA-TC in thet comparison

btw:I enjoyed my combination possibility during the Isle of Man TT recently - only back side is that files do not tellyou whether you used the TC or not.
