Isn't that Pete the 'Gadget Guy' who usually appears on the Channel 7 Sunrise programme reviewing new technology.

A few photos from a recent trip to Durban in South Africa. There were some beautiful sun rises.

Actually, I'm just really passing time until my K3 arrives in the next day or so! :) :)

Hmmmm....not sure why, but the photo thumbnails don't seem to be showing up above?

As an aside, Clem from CR Kennedy emailed me to say they were uploading the BG-5 to their website today. I asked the price - $249.
Still no sign of it on their website though.

Just pre-ordered the K3 from Leederville Cameras in Perth. It's not yet up on their website but will be tomorrow I was told. Paid 20% deposit over the phone. Told it would be in in the first week or so of November - here's hoping!

A few questions implementing this on a K30 please.

If you are using the four select buttons to chose the metering point how can you change the ISO setting (or white balance, flash etc)?

AF button customized no problems but can't see where to tun off the half shutter focus? Thanks

K30. Have been very tempted to pull the trigger on a K5iis during my wait for a new K3. If the rumored specs prove to be correct I will take the leap.

Thanks Doundounba.

In response to a PM I received I took some test shots at a local park with the Sigma 17-70mm.
I took photos at 17mm, 40mm and 70mm each at three apertures of wide open, f5.6 and f13.
I just took them in jpg and uploaded unprocessed directly into a Flickr set. Here is the link:

Sigma 17-70 test - a set on Flickr

I hope this helps.

Thankyou for sharing your link. What a fantastic event and some great shots there with your 55-300.
I have the beanbag ready to go so good to see that you found it useful. I'll have a tripod and monopod with me as well.
What body did you have the 55-300 on?
Did you find the speed of the 55-300 restrictive in low light or was the lighting OK? I've read that the light soon after sunrise and just before sunset is still very good.

Thanks. I'm feeling pretty comfortable now with my selection and looking forward to it.

I will definitely put together a write up when I get back with photos so that others like yourself can see what worked well and what didn't based on my experiences.

I'm packing a powerboard (4 socket) as well so that I can charge up multiple batteries + phone + laptop etc at the same time. Might be worth considering.
