No need to change any of the underlying components, just change the EXIF data to output as FF K1. Problem solved :lol:

Fill Flash question

He mentioned use of Onboard flash but asked him if the shutter speed is limited to certain number when using onboard. Next time when we meet will probably try his camera to see how it outputs to similar situation.

Any possibility onboard flash might have HSS feature on Canon?

Edit: Confirmed with him that he uses external flash for these kind of situations, Onboard limitation is same as Pentax. I misunderstood him, power of quick WhatsApp chatting lol.

Ha ha, he is one of my best friends and he is very good at photography, he gives me lots of good tips. This tip provoked me to learn new stuff right:D

We always have a friendly debate, He tries to 'Canonise' me and I try to 'Pentaxise' him.

Hi Carl, are you from Quebec City? We visited last summer, beautiful city, too bad we didn't have more time to explore, was just a one day trip from Montreal and then we have to drive back to US to catch our flight back home.

I tried different Shutter speeds and 1/1600 gave more acceptable results. Will have to experiment more.

I have to carry extra flash to combat this situation now:mad:

I probably will try using reflector shades and see how it comes out.

Thanks. Figured it out. Onboard flash was overexposing, but using AF540 flash in HS mode, I was able to go to 1/1600 and ISO 100 at F1.4, picture looks better. Need to play around more but Son won't pose anymore, need to pay him lol.

Hi,

New to me, used Pentax DA * 55mm F1.4 lens came in, as usual want to have fun with the new toy. Asked my son to be my model and was trying to shoot wide open at F1.4. It's mid afternoon with harsh sunlight I wanted to have some light on the shadow areas. If I use the built-in flash the shutter speed doesn't go more than 1/180 and even if I reduce the flash output to the minimum the pictures end up all washed out.

My friend who is a Canon shooter suggested using "Fill Flash", what is the equivalent of this in Pentax world?

How do I shoot in these situations wide open?

I am not a Pro, trying to learn new things.


Camera - K-3.

Thanks.

Posted on another thread.

Picked up this lens (Sigma 75-200 F3.8 Auto Focus lens) as Bargain graded from KEH for $40 shipped including taxes. Pretty sharp lens. K-3 and K-50 reports as F4 from 75-200. Initially it was weird with push pull zoom, but I like it now. Posting some samples taken at 200mm, F4

They wouldn't pose properly as they were amused seeing Weird Humans wearing masks:lol:




Here is a sample from Sigma 30mm @ F1.4

I wish Pentax would have invested extra $.10 to address this issue before the release of K70. Almost 3 years now, my K50 still going strong after the surgery!! This is my travel buddy along with the 40mm XS lens. Would love to have the flippy screen of K70.
