Using the 55-200mm WR Kit lens.

I tried the lowest 5MP JPEG mode but it still shoots 3 pictures and then stops. The led indicator at the bottom keeps on blinking orange. I did a reset and that fixed things for 5 mins - the camera would take pics continuously but then it slows down to 3 pics a shot. Is this normal behavior for the K50?

Tried the 18-55mm lens as well and same result. Any suggestions? The camera is just a month old!

Hi,

I recently noticed that my K50 only takes 3-4 pics when I hold down the shutter button in continuous mode. Is this normal for it to do so?

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys thanks for the quick responses!

I have another question - i am clicking in manual mode, i have set the AF button to be used for back button focus. The other day i had pressed the AF button to back button focus while i was in manual mode for the lens as well and lo and behold the focus point started lighting up in my viewfinder when I focussed properly on a subject! I switched off the camera and tried to see if the points would light up if I didnt press the AF button and it did not even when the subject was in focus. On pressing the AF button, the camera started highlighting the points in focus again.

Is this normal for my camera to do this?

I see! That is a big relief to know :) Thank you!



I did take the same lamp shot with the flash on and it seemed pretty normal this time around. :)

I have another question - which lens should i get next for regular street and night photography?

First of all, so overwhelmed by the responses received on this forum.



Initially tried to let the camera do its thing in auto and switch to Aperture Priority. JPEGs of the same image turned out to be brighter than the RAW images.



I will do so.Away from my camera right now. Will do so as soon as I get back.



I dont think it was a returned camera. When I powered it on for the for the first time, it had all the setting at stock. Also I took quite a few images and then checked for the shutter count on this forum. It was around 41 ( more or less the number of shots I took with it).

I haven't tried a firmware update yet, pics definitely retain their detail in post.



The graininess appears only in the viewfinder. I don't know how a UV filter would look. Since the VF appeared grainy, I took the lens off and looked at a lamp using the VF and it seems to have a grainy pattern. I must mention that this does not affect image quality at all. They come out crisp and no signs of graininess.



I haven't changed the metering option at all. Its on the default one. Also EV compensation is set to 0.

Still gonna try to play with the settings and take some more pics to see whats up with it.

I have attached an untouched JPG image of a lamp i was trying to shoot. Also i tried to take some pics of the internals and you can make out a grainy appearance on the prism .

Please let me know if its okay for that pattern to be there. It has not affected any of my images.

Hi all,

I received my K50 today with the DAL 18-55mm and DAL 55-200mm today. This is my very first DLSR and I am just starting off. I noticed that there was a grainy appearance in the VF with both kit lens and even without any lens on. A quick read through some of the threads in this forum helped me understand that it is normal for this camera to have such graininess as it helps perceive DOF better (? that is what I got from reading the other threads ?). Tried my hand a while longer and I kind of get how that graininess actually helps understand which parts are in focus and which are not. I had previously purchased a D3300 with the same kind of lenses and it had a relatively clearer VF, but what seemed to be in focus through the VF when viewed on my Mac,was usually a bit off focus. I returned the D3300 and finally got the K50. ( Loving it so far)

The main reason for creating this thread is that I want to shoot all images in RAW and later fine tune them in Picasa and iPhoto ( still learning the basics of Lightroom and its plethora of features ). However when I took a few shots with adequate lighting, they all came out pretty dark. Is it normal for the K50 to do this? Viewing those pictures in iPhoto showed them to be dark ( like the camera LCD ) but Picasa for some reason was auto correcting and showing me a much closer to the original setup shot.

Need advice on what to do!

Thank you!
