Thank you :)
Haha, yeah for this evening you are right - well I gave "her" a goodnight-kiss after the show, this has to be sufficient ;)





Thanks :)
Its a bit harder to use then I thought :o, but I really like it!

After a longer time I want to show some shots again. These are from the Heaven Shall Burn concert in Frankfurt. Cause there was no photopit, I had to shoot out of the... well moshpit :D (all of you who know Heaven Shall Burn can imagine how that felt ^^).

The first one is to showcase the environmental conditions ;)

The other 3 are all taken with the FA 77ltd - it was my first concert I took it with me. I kinda wanted to test the ability to use it at concertphotography. I have to admit I was surprised how it performed with the lights there, but I wont take it with me again if there is no photopit :hmm:

Are there any photos available with the DA 60-250 and the TC in FF-Mode with the amount of vignetting visible? For me the vignetting of the 60-250 is perfectly acceptable, does the TC make it much more worse?

Okay its time again for some of my shots :)

Last weekend I finally had the chance to try the K1 at a larger festival - Rockavaria in Munich. Here are some of my shots with the K1 + DA* 60-250 from Powerwolf and Nightwish. Did pp on all of them in Lightroom.

I have to admit, Im ing impressed with the 36MP of the K1, I really have to get used to it and its crop possibilities. Focus with the 60-250 was not super fast, yet way more reliable then on my K5 when less light was avaiable! I really like the combo, but still the shiny new 70-200 is kinda flirting with me :o Well maybe santa will carry one for me with him :confused:



PS: I was shocked non of the other ~70 photographers used Pentax :eek:

Last weekend I was at Rockavaria in Munich - Germany, to photograph for my website and sadly I had to notice that I was the only Pentaxian in the crowed of like 70 photographers there - I saw no other Pentax camera, mostly CaNikon with 2-3 Sonys :(

So maybe we are more rare then I thought...

At least some of the other guys noticed the little beauty I brought to the festival (K1 with 24-70 / 60-250) and asked some questions, wanted to hold her and play around - so I was happy to be able to show them that Pentax is still alive and not only a myth :D

Hopefully I will find some Pentaxians on the next festivals I will visit this year ^^#

Yes the will be blurry cause the whole sensor is moving and everything on earth is not ^^ (to put it in a simple way)
-> Yes two photos. One with the Astrotracer and the sky and a 2nd one with the trees/mountain/... without astrotracer. Then you have one with a blurry sky and one with blurry mountains ;)

A lot? I have made some test-shots today, too. I think its totally fine for normal use.

First three are nearly on infinity, last two are 1:1. Those shots were just made to see the vignetting, so they are not with special motives :o

No postprocessing besides RAW -> LR import -> Export with "normal sharpening screen"

SD Card Capacity
Posted By LilithBaerchen

In my K5 have I used several 16GB and 8GB cards with different speed levels - at concerts I safed the fastest one for the headliner xD

Now with the K1 I got 2x 32GB with fast speed and one 128GB with moderate speed (still faster then my 16GB cards I had for the K5). The 128GB helps me at a long festival or daytrip to keep all the data without having to safe on a PC or sort out on the camerascreen, the 2x 32GB will be my normal setup. I shoot RAW only most times, btw - so I have a bit more capacity, then with RAW+

If this is working - well I havnt had the time to test it yet, but at least in mid June I have my first festival with the K1 (hopefully one before, too^^) and will have to add more cards for July / August festivals if I run into problems with this setup.

There was no real post-processing at all. Just imported the DNG into LR6 and then exported it with the watermark and the "normal sharpening for screens" option. I can do a few more shots with it later this day at different focus settings :)

@Fcsnt54
Here is the best I can do for today - all images again RAW out of cam -> LR -> export as JPG with "normal" sharpening for screen at export dialogue, nothing else.

24-70 full K1
24-70 CROP K1
24-70 K5

35ltd full K1
35ltd CROP K1
35ltd K5

On both sets the light changed a bit while changing lenses. The 24-70 was out of hand, the 35ltd not. Perspective change in the 2nd set cause of the huger body of the K1 ;)

Ah yea sorry I was kinda unclear- I meant more the settings in the menu of the K1, like the (for me as former K5 user) strange AF-settings that are avaiable now, or if you have any of the processing things active like NR at high ISO or things like this ;)

Thanks for sharing :) And yep I already fell in love with it just using the combo in the park ^^

Would you maybe like to tell us the settings you use for concertphotography? It would be interesting for me to see what a Pro uses for settings with the K1, compared to the one I have used at my K5 and now transfered to the K1 :)

Will you always shoot at 36MP?
Posted By LilithBaerchen
Replies: 39

Yep I will only shoot 36MP, BUT I already feel the pain of waiting in LR when zooming in or looking through the images. A K5-Raw with around 20-20MB is one thing, but now we go to around 45-50MB... Diskspace is no issue, but processing time will be for me I think...

Well I have to learn to delete more images otherwise diskspace may become an issue after all *chrm*. My first hardcore moment will be after the next concertshoot with 400+ images to sort, delete and process *_*, on the other side, K1s burstrate is slower, so I might take less photos then with the K5 xD

Okay, tomorrow I will see what I can do - today I have some "K1 + 24-70"-only photos with me :)

[All full JPG out of LR with K1-Update for LR already done]

24-70 at f2.8 OOC DNG -> LR -> JPG (I think nothing except from export-sharpening for screen?)

For the Handy Guys - 100% Crop from the photo above

24-70 at f2.8 - same "processing" again

24-70 at f2.8 again

24-70 at f3.2

again 24-70 at f3.2

24-70 at f4.5 and ISO 10.000

24-70 f8.0 straight into the sun

24-70 f8.0 70mm 1/25s

24-70 f8.0 70mm

Some photos may have "profile-correction" in LR enabled some not - sry I forgott :o - NR at high ISO in camera was active I think... uuum - you can download the files and geht the EXIF for more information. All I did was OOC DNG -> LR -> export as JPG (light sharpening for screen in export dialoge was active... forgot to switch it off).

If you like to have one or two raws from here tell me, then I gonna upload them, but not all, I dont have the fastest internet and the files are dmn huge :lol:


PS: Handling was a bit confusing with LV and preview button but went better over time, same for the tilt-screen^^. I had the K1 for over 1 hour only in my hands and although Im kinda not the body-builder type of guy (62kg over 185cm xD) I had no problem at all with thei weight in my hand (K1 + 24-70). The grip is just a dream *_*!

Wohoooo my one came tomorrow with the 24-70. I was really suprised, never thought I will receive it so early :) - Sadly I had no time to play with it, because of a stupid deadline at my university >_<

But today the weather looks promising and I got the K1 with me to university and will take a walk through a park on my way home this evening to see if I can find something to capture :)

Wish you guys the best for early delivery, too!!!
