Thanks for the tips.
Hope i can also play some with the astro tracer function on the K-1.
Lapland is one of the very few places in europe where the nights are really dark.

I just found one, although they are really scarce here.
new, original and unused for 125,- :lol:

I got some Patona 3rd party batteries, but they aren't really holding their power in cold weather. And as I,m going to Lapland next week trying to capture some aurora activity, I definitely need enough power.

@ Kobayashi.K: you're right about 3rd party grips, but do you know that the pentax grip also is produced in the Philippines? Just like the K-1 ;)

I also googled but couldn,t find any.
And i also use third party batteries, but the original pentax battery is getting worse now. I never experienced that with original batteries on my older cameras.
Btw. What 3rd party lithiums do you use?

Is there an alternative for the expensive D BG6 battery grip? Maybe a third party like there is for the D BG4?
Or is there another way to use pen lights in your K-1?

Not bad for that price. But not as good as original. Just good enough for that extra power when needed.

the one I ordered on ali-express isn't available there anymore. I found the same one on a russian site:

CONENSET D-LI90 D-LI90P ???????? ?????????? ??? Pentax K-01 K-3 ?-1 645Z 645D ?????? ? ??? PENTAX K-7 K-5 II IIs D-LI90/PBattery | ???????? ?????????? ??? ?????? ? ??????????? | ?????? ???????????

But it worked fine for me. I used it last summer on a road trip in my car and am still using it. Charging a battery takes only a few hours.

I never came in those situations that I needed an extra battery, but for my next vacation I intend to shoot a lot of timelapse. Also I will be on the road with only my car, so very few occasions to reload the batteries.
If the results are satisfying, I will buy some extra original batteries, but for now I am looking for a cheap alternative.

By the way, the original D-LI90 says: Made in China.

@ Danielblues and Krazny: I heard about Patona, If I remember well, I once ordered something from them. Thanks for the link.

Who has experiences with cheap $10 (or less) spare D-LI90 accus from ebay or alixpress?
Years ago I bought one for my pentax KIIs, but after 50 clicks it was empty. Maybe there are better ones these days.

Installed a new version, but still see a filtered image when I click on develop.

yesterday I had to delete some files on my hard drive because of lack of space. I decided I could safely delete some maps out of an older (LR4) lightroom catalog previews.lrdata-map.
But today I noticed some problems in LR.
Browsing images in the library looks good, but when selecting images for developing, they look very strange.
I tried importing new images, but this doesn't solve the problem. It looks like LR is adding those strange colors/settings automatically.
what is causing this problem? Probably some presets?

edit: my current version is 6.13, not 6.6

Finally after 5 weeks I received above charger. It's smaller than it looks on aliexpress. I tried it on my pc today and it works fine. Red light turns blue when fully charged.

I need the possibility to charge my battery with a powerbank when I,m in the field. That's my main purpose. Or in the car when I,m on the way to another location.
Less important is that It shortens the lifespan of the battery. I,ve seen "good" non-branded batteries for less than $20

I think I will give it a try

I,m searching for an usb powered type of battery charger for D-Li90 batteries for my pentax K1.
I found this one but I,m not sure about it.

PATONA Synchron USB Charger f. Pentax D Li90 D-Li90 with LCD - Batterijen, accu's, opladers vindt u bij Accubat.nl

My original D-BC90 charger has 3 contacts, just like my original D-Li90 battery. But I only see 2 contacts on the patona charger.

thanks for the input...I think it will be the 360 FGZ II.

I always used a metz on my k-5IIs but I was not very satisfied with it, especially in backlight situations.
Also I had that locking pin issue. The flash wouldn't come off the hotshoe without using a small screwdriver
