Happy Thanksgiving!

I need some help choosing an insert to house my pentax K-3 with sigma 17-50 2.8 lense on.
I am planning a long hiking trip. When doing long hikes When hiking I find it more comfortable to use a proper hiking day pack.
As I feel that camera bags as a general rule tend to accommodate more to the needs of the camera, than for hiker needs.

Did any of you have a prior experience of using BYOB 10 insert for pentax K-3 with a lens on ? Was it hard to fit the camera in? How much space was left?
Any other recommendations?

Thanks!!

Just bought the body only from Amazon for 609$. Hope it was a wise decision not to wait for new years deals.
The 820$ deal is seems to be over :-(

Thanks Adam.

You are probably right, but selling equipment takes time and energy (lazy me):cool:
Do you think there is a chance for further deals later this month ?

Hi Guys.

Seems like there are no new deals for K-3 bodies .
Taking into account I have only limited usage for the flash & 50mm lense, what would you rather do ? what is the better deal in your opinion?
1)Buy the adorama deal for 650$?
2)Buy body only from gadget circuit for 605$ Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera (Body Only)
3)Buy the k3 II body only from gadget circuit for 705 $ Pentax K-3 II DSLR Camera (Body Only)
4)Buy k3 II body only from B&H for 750?

Any ideas ?

Hi
I have exactly the same problem.
I am now on vocation in Korea , so I shoot a lot.
Once in 4-5 days I have few hours of this problem.(dark images with the same exif) the only bypass I found is using high speed mode . Usually the first photo in the series turns out to be dark while the following are ok. After few hours of shooting the problem goes away. I think I hear strange sound when those dark images are shot.
I consider visiting the service here in busan but how can I report problem which is random with low rate of ocurances ? Have any of you had this problem solved by simple means? Clening contacts ,firmware etc (just before I go to the service)

K30 Exposure Problem

Hi

Not using A setting and using only old lenses is somewhat problematic to me, As it really compromises almost all cumera functions, specially those I need on my trip.
Regarding bypasses it seems that when I start experience the problem I can allways take 2 exposures when the second one is obsolutely fine. In addition after few hours of shooting the problems disappears . Just to be back again after a week or so :(

What do you think ?
Appreciate your ideas .
