I've given up trying to understand, predict or care, I have some shots that have been in "explore" but IMO I have better shots that have not, and although I see many very excellent & worthy shots I also constantly see photos that I regard (IMO) as nothing more than casual snap shots. Its nice when you get there but I don't see it to be a judgement on my shots, its sort of meaningless.

I think the "Camera Make" in the KP is "RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD" as is anything later than the K5. check this particularly the last page Windows 10, Gimp & Pentax - Page 3 - PentaxForums.com



thank you EM :) cheers

from a while back, I have no info on the shot. I'd have to go back and find the original, but processing with newer version of Gimp strips the exif data if the camera make is "PENTAX" :eek: I have to remember to edit the exif to "Pentax" (or anything else, just not PENTAX in all capitals) before loading into gimp. :confused:

nice delicate colours in this rose, well captured, cheers




another technique is to use spot metering on the flower, it can help to darken the background, cheers

you make good sense, I purchased the DA55-300 for the 300 but have been impressed with what it can do at shorter FLs It is a versatile lens for sure.

DA55-300 min focus distance 1.4 m :), very annoying to have to back away from a bird to get to min focus distance as has happen to me a few times using older lenses, also light and easy to handle, many shots taken one handed with DA 55-300 while walking the dog. That said if I had the DA*300 I don't think the 55-300 would get much of a run.

the bird is a New Holland Honey Eater ( Australian ), about 12 cm tip of beak to tip of tail, shot @300mm from about 2 meters and a slight crop .
Like you my budget doesn't stretch to the more expensive lens but I've tried the Sigma / Tamron 70-300 and Sigma 70-300 APO and for quite a while was using an old Sigma 70-300 DL Macro with a push pull zoom.

I think DA55-300 is better than Sigma 70-300 although APO version is close.


The main weakness (IMO) of the DA55-300 is that while you can shoot at f8 (for best performance) and can trade ISO for higher shutter speeds to get better sharpness, there's still no getting around the slow wide open aperture and what effect that has on auto focus particularly in low ambient light. Perhaps the PLM version is better in this regard (I would expect so) but I have no experience with it.

edit: sorry I made a mistake with the distance with this shot, It should read " from about 5 meters "

I think for budget birding with Pentax you can't go past the DA 55-300, If you make sure the AF adjustment is correct at 300mm it's sharp enough provided you can get close enough, sure I'd like more reach but for me the fun of birding is developing skills & techniques to get close enough, there are some situations where you are not in the picture (pardon the pun) but you can still get some good shots (as well as miss some shots due to slow or hunting auto focus.)

this is important, note the connections and put them back the same - otherwise the electromagnetic polarity will be reversed and the solenoid won't release at all.
