I thought it was the heat... as soon as I got home I placed it on the refrigerator and re-tried... same issue... so I am a bit lost here...

And yes, this same camera has been to the desert at least once - besides the K10d and even the Kx (not sealed, and survived fine).

Steve,

Just uploaded the photos and they are fine. The issue first was only reviewing photos then I realized the display was also buggie in shooting mode.

Hi guys,

I hope all is well with the community, I haven't actually been here in a while - well, to be quite honest I haven't shot much in a while. I just came back from Nevada, I was shooting some photos in the desert with my K-5 and this time I had some issues with the 3" LCD Display.

I tried searching for similar problems on the forum but most were related to the top display, not the main 3" LCD. During my shooting the 3" Display started acting out, best shown in the videos below:

Display acting out during picture preview:

Has anyone seen this before? Original battery has been removed and replaced and issues continue.

Any help or suggestion?

Thanks in advance,

BB

Good discussion, I had problems in the past selecting the appropriate Camera Calibration Profile.

Currently under LR 3.3, I found out that ACR 4.4 seems to be the best profile.

If you buy thru Ebay, it says it comes from Canada and they have this 3-year Warranty, which is not honored by Pentax but a third party company.

Not sure how it works if you bought it thru buy.com though....

40mm limited versus 77mm

I also have both lenses and would have to agree with most comments: the lenses are very different and master different situations.

If I were to choose and purchase only one of them, ignoring the other lenses I own, I guess I would purchase the 40mm because it is closer to normal, very flexible and very fun to use.

Interesting finding Jake,

I have purchased from ProDigital but thru Ebay, and IIRC they are located in Canada and the warranty situation gets a bit complicated...

BUT, if I buy thru Buy.com, would that change anything in regards to the warranty? If this price is for the K-5 with USA warranty I guess then it is a good deal...

Hi Admins,

For some reason I have been denied access to the Marketplace, tp the WANTED folder, for a while now. I used to be able to use this folder but recently I can't access it. My understanding of the new Marketplace rules are these:




Not sure if the rule above has changed or if my account has a bug.


Well, regardless, today I decide to become a donating member and even after paypal has confirmed my payment, I still cannot access the marketplace, which makes me believe something could be wrong with my account.

Anyone could investigate this for me?

Thanks in advance,

BB

Congrats on the camera and good questions.

I can't help you because I dont have a K-5, but I have a follow up question: is the NR setting only applicable to JPEG or to RAW as well?

Thanks!

Lens cap?

:)


Are you sure you got the timing correct? I've done few storms like that and out of a good 50 shots I was able to get only 5 timed correctly.

Also, maybe the NR was on and it takes longer for the camera to be ready. For instance, if you take a 30s exposure, it would take another 30s for the NR to do the magic (assuming it works like my K10D/Kx).

Great project, love the concept.

I feel like #1 has the best overall barbaric feeling. The other shots I felt like the models were not fully playing the role.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

In this particular case though, the exposure was measured on the sky, and I contrasted the photo even more in LR.

I went for the dark feeling.

IMO, the regular exposure versions were not as interesting as these.


Cheers!
