There are no specific rules for what is and isn't appropriate for this giveaway. That said, regular forum rules do apply- and it is against the rules to flood the forum with meaningless posts. So, folks who do that within the scope of this giveaway will face the same consequences they would otherwise, with the possible added consequence of disqualification. I think common sense would go a long way as far as the appropriateness of posts goes ;)

Please feel free to report bulk/meaningless posts should you come across any.

I think it is, yes. AI is nothing more than computers learning from their mistakes. If more data than just the image at hand can be used to improve PP results, then surely that's the way things will be headed :)

The 28-105mm is a great lens, but whether or not it's right for you will depend on your shooting style and goals. What lenses do you have currently and how do you plan to use the camera?

Your decision to hang on to the KPs sounds like a good one. The K-3 replacement is at least on the horizon now, so I'm sure you'll be able to upgrade relatively soon, if that's what you were planning to do regardless.

The green button is pretty consistent across bodies. What it does is it resets the shutter speed and aperture to the values recommended by the camera. This comes in especially handy when using hyper program mode, or when shooting with manual lenses.

There are of course other functions of the button (in conjunction with other buttons) depending on context, but I believe that in older bodies like the K-r that extent is a bit more limited.

Using manual focus lenses on K100D or K20D
Posted By Adam
Replies: 7
Views: 422
Newer bodies with proper live view (i.e. magnification and peaking) are generally going to make your life a lot easier as far as manual focusing goes. But there are some tricks which you can take to optimize image quality when focusing manually.


First, I would aim to shoot at smaller apertures to benefit from depth of field and to squeeze out more sharpness from the lens. F8 would be a safe starting point. Also, to keep shutter speeds in check, I would dial in a higher ISO, as noise is generally favorable to blur (especially with modern noise reduction software). Finally, practice makes perfect- there's no replacement for getting your hands dirty and seeing how things go :)
