Did they ever work? If not it may be a compatibility problem. "The Pentax K100D uses SDHC and SD memory cards. That means that the maximum card size you are able to use is 32GB."
Pentax K100D Memory Card Compatibility | Outside The Shot
Also, upgraded firmware is needed to use SDHC cards. SD card size maximum is 4GB. Check to see what firmware you are using, Good luck.

Lightroom vs. Topaz AI Sharpen Comparison Photos

I have recently acquired Topaz AI Sharpen. I am using the latest version 2.2.0.
I re-processed a slightly out of focus shot from 2019 of the Thunderbirds show in Atlantic City NJ.
All settings were synced from the Lightroom version after topaz AI Sharpening except sharpening and noise reduction to keep the playing field even.
Topaz was set to auto and it chose focus mode with 50% sharpening and 50% noise reduction.

Top Photo = Lightroom only
Bottom Photo = Topaz + Lightroom.

I am pleased with the improvement Topaz gave me in the final image.
Your opinions would be appreciated.

The notch on the flange is the same as a Minolta MD Mount but other details are off. If it does have a Minolta adapter, as 'Not A Number' suggests, that comes off, you can get an m42 Pentax adapter. Read the faq on how to use m42 lenses on modern dslr cameras.

Question Paypal Friends and family solictations.
Posted By davidreilly3207

Views: 343
I am seeing more and more listings asking for buyer to pay the seller Paypal fee, or soliciting use of 'Paypal Friends and Family', which doesn't allow for disputing transactions is case of a problem.

Asking for the Seller fee is a violation of Paypal Policy. From their site:
"If a seller is asking the buyer to pay the seller's fees - it's against PayPal's Policies - this is called a surcharge and it's clearly pointed out in the PayPal User Agreement. Below is a snippet from the documentation, look for - Accepting Payments From Buyers for Goods and Services.
No surcharges
You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the "handling" fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions. ("Handling fees" -are common in the ticket sales world.)
If someone is using PayPal, they must follow the Terms in the User Agreement. You may want to not deal with this person."

Maybe this should be banned in the marketplace rules. If seller wishes to recoup the fee, it should be built into the price.

Soliciting use Of Paypal friends and Family is a violation of marketplace rules. (Rule 12).

Merry Christmas
And A
Happy, Healthy,
New Year

Lyrics by Buz Kohan

Come they told me
A new born king to see
Our finest gifts we bring

Peace on earth, can it be
Years from now, perhaps we'll see
See the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on earth, can it be

Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can

I pray my wish will come true
For my child and your child too
He'll see the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on earth, can it be
Can it be

Bing Crosby

I have use and find them to be excellent. Gear I have rented has always been pristine. I also inquired about purchasing one of their rental lenses, a DA*300mm f4, and was very happy with the price and the condition of the lens I received.

Flu-card for tripod shutter control on K3
Posted By davidreilly3207
Replies: 26
Views: 1,085
Having recently acquired a flucard for my K-3 I can only attest to its operation while checking the functionality of the used card, not in real shooting situations. It functioned well with the android app as a remote control. It offers focusing options, choice of focal point and focus peaking, not available using IR remotes because I believe it uses live view cdaf. I plan to use it while on a tripod.
Transfer of images to my computer was typical of wi-fi speeds, that is to say, slow.
